Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Division of Biblical Studies standards where they differ from The SBL Handbook of Style (numbers paragraph numbers in the Handbook):

 

3.1.1.1    Nonroman fonts

If you need to cite text in a language for which you do not have [and cannot acquire] the appropriate font, you should leave a space in your manuscript and write the text in by hand.  Check first with your supervisor about finding the appropriate font.

 

3.1.1.2    Block Quotations

Any direct prose citation of two or more sentences which continues for eight or more lines of text should be set off from the text in single-spacing and indented in its entirety four spaces from the normal left-hand margin.  No quotation marks are used at the beginning or end of a block quote.

 

3.1.1.4    Notes

As is, except that footnotes should be single-spaced.

 

3.1.1.7    Special characters

Do not use codes enclosed in angle brackets.  Find the appropriate font or special character.  If that is not possible write in the special diacritic or symbol by hand.

 

4.3          Bias-Free Language

Use of masculine pronouns and language for God is acceptable (following biblical models).

 

4.4.8       Pronouns Referring to God

As is, except that use of masculine pronouns and language for God is acceptable (following biblical models).

 

8.1.2       Eras

As is, except for the fact that A.D. and B.C. are to be preferred.
