Writing Style Guide

All students are required to follow the same guidelines when writing papers for any Eternity Bible College class. These guidelines are detailed in the Eternity Style Guide. The purpose of the style guide is both to assist students in writing and formatting their papers and to provide a degree of uniformity in our writing. This is helpful for both students and professors (professors have a consistent standard for evalutation; students can master one formatting system, rather than readjusting for each class).

These guidelines are the starting point for all papers in all classes, but each professor has the freedom to adjust the requirements for that particular class. Please check with your professor for any formatting adjustments.

With some exceptions, the Eternity Style Guide is based on standard MLA formatting (6th edition). Our intention was to create a standard formatting guide that would simplify a notoriously complicated process.
