1) Begin with a brief summary of the nature and contents of the book. Is it a work
of original scholarship, a synthesis based on secondary sources, or something
else? What are the author’s principal topics? What sources has [s]he used?
Provide an objective, descriptive introduction to the book, but keep it short and
to the point. Assume that your reader has considerable familiarity with the general subject matter. (Don’t waste space defining basic terms or identifying people and events known to specialists in the field.)
2) Identify and explain the central argument of the book. What is the author’s
main interpretive question, and how does[s]he answer it? You may find that the
book has several arguments or theses, and you should elucidate as many of them
as you deem important. If you don?t detect a unifying argument, does the book
serve a useful purpose nonetheless? In writing your review, you may find it appropriate to interweave your explanation of the interpretive thesis with your introductory description of the contents.
3) Finally, your review should offer an evaluation of the book and, insofar as possible, assess its value for general readers and students of early modern Christianity.
Most importantly, you must decide whether the central argument is convincing
(or if a book lacking argument is worthwhile on other grounds). Does the evidence presented support the interpretation? Is the argument consistent? Is the
book important?does it address significant questions and propose useful answers? You may also wish to evaluate the style, organization and physical
presentation of the book.
