The Making Sense series offers clear, concise guides to research and writing for students at all levels of undergraduate study. Designed especially for students in religious studies, this volume outlines general principles of style, grammar, and punctuation while also covering issues such as how to conduct academic research in religious studies, how to read religious texts, how to write essays and short assignments, how to document sources, and how to give an oral presentation. Revisions to the second edition of Making Sense in Religious Studies; A Student's Guide to Research and Writing include a re-ordering of chapters to better match the writing and learning process. It includes comprehensive coverage of new developments in technology-based research and writing. The sections on MLA, APA, and Chicago style have been revised to be completely up to date.
