"The names of God, specific deities, religious figures, and holy books
God the Father, the Virgin Mary, the Bible, Moses, Shiva, Buddha
Zeus, the Greek gods
Exception: Do not capitalize the non-specific use of the word "god."

"2. Capitalization of Pronouns Used for the Persons of the Trinity.
A secondary question concerns the capitalization of these words (as well as
the personal pronouns he, his, him, me, my, mine) with reference to
God. To my knowledge the turn of the century (1901) American Standard Bible

maintained this. This practice was taken over by various private Bible
translations; the Berkley Bible among others. ......... "
