Experience Level: Intermediate
A ghost writer is sought for a new religious text that has the working title: “The Bible Beside Itself: Stories about Jesus.” The manuscript is 280 pages long and needs modification in order to be published in the UK Religious Education market.

If you do not have publications in the UK RE market, please do not apply.

The author, Rev. Dr Mitchell Modisett, has had a long career, both as a Methodist minister, Elder of the Methodist Church, and as a high school science teacher. In his retirement, he continued to preach for many years in the Unitarian Universalist Church in the USA. This book represents over 60 years of his experience considering this subject.

Nonetheless, he is quite open and keen to have it rewritten in a form acceptable to the UK religious education market. Many RE texts use shorter sections and include illustrations to emphasize themes. The ghost writer would be expected to find and advise on writing style and as well as potential inclusion of illustrations and securing permission for those if necessary.

The premise of the book is to place side-by-side in table format different passages from the New Testament that discuss the same event. Then the text discusses any apparent differences with a neutral tone in order to explore view of critics and supporters of Bible consistency. A background in historical methods could be useful but is not required of the ghost.

This is likely to be a lengthy engagement. While I wish to maintain flexibility to cancel the assignment, I would like to be comfortable that the ghost could complete the assignment.
