Since the fourth century, when Spanish monks first started
signing to communicate during their vows of silence, sign language has
been used in religious communities of all faiths. Present-day American
Sign Language (ASL) carries on that tradition. Like any living language,
it continues to grow and change to meet the communication needs of an
ever more diverse religious population. This comprehensive guide, newly
revised, updated, and expanded, gives you all the vocabulary you need to
communicate effectively in any religious setting.
From Alleluia
to Zizith, more than 750 signs and their specific meanings

Large, clear, upper-torso illustrations that show the
corresponding movements of hands, body, and face
Easy-to-follow
instructions to help you master the art of expressing signs
A
complete index for quick access to any sign
With an essential
section of religious “name signs,” the addition of signs for
the Muslim faith, and an expanded selection of favorite verses,
prayers, and blessings, this book is an indispensable resource for
signers of all denominations. Written with expertise by an educator and
author associated with the field of deafness for more than thirty years,
it makes communicating by ASL in a religious setting simple and easy,
no matter your level of experience.

This one was a great help when I was learning from the ASL interpreter at my church. If you're looking for an aid in signing for sermons and/or translating praise and worship songs, this is a clear and thorough resource.

Catholic and Protestant sources are primarily credited, but many of the demonstrative sketches depict Jewish interpreters and Judaism-specific applications. Words like "Mormon" and "Jehovah's Witness", "Quaker" and "Mennonite" are included.

My biggest criticism would be that I This one was a great help when I was learning from the ASL interpreter at my church. If you're looking for an aid in signing for sermons and/or translating praise and worship songs, this is a clear and thorough resource.

My biggest criticism would be that I didn't see anything by way of Islam, Hindu, Buddhism, etc. in representation . . . and so the subtitle of "A Comprehensive Guide for All Faiths" seems a bit misleading. I would simply ask that they specify it as specialized for "All Judeo-Christian Faiths" :) (Note: I am speaking for the 1986 edition, and I understand that newer expanded versions are now Islam inclusive.) ...more

Great book, I have been signing for years, but religious signs can be a bit different. Helps a lot when I need to reference some words and double check a sign.

I got this book when I agreed to sign a play and sermon at a church. I wanted to be certain all the religious signs were correct. This is a great guide to the changes you have to make to regular signs when using them in a religious context.

This book really helped us to teach our 4 year old some gospel principles that he couldn't grasp with speech yet. It also helps with signing primary songs.
