As a Christian Book Reviewer, you will carefully read the stories and share your understanding, impressions, what you like and possibly what you did not like about a story. We encourage all our reviewers to post only positive feedback. If at any time, you find a story that for some reason is not ready to receive a positive feedback, make sure to make annotations and comments to share with the customers, but never post a negative feedback. We are here to help Christian authors get good honest reviews and at the same time, improve their writings in the process.
What you need to consider when reviewing a Christian book. Essence of a Christian book review.
- Identify the message, purpose or goal of the author and determine if the author has reached his or her goal.
- If you know about the author’s qualification, previous books or experience, mention them, if it is relevant to your Christian Book Review.
- Choose a major theme and a secondary theme of the book that you loved and explained why you loved or liked them. You need to tell others how you were blessed when reading the book.
- Choose one or two things that you did not like very much. Make sure you give objective reasons and do not base your opinions on a passing mood.
- You may want to comment on the author’s writing style (formal or informal, captivating or turgid, and so on).
- Summarize your thoughts and recommend the book by sharing the author’s link, website, and profile page; conclude with a blessing.
A book review is not about emotions, but primarily analytical. Your rational review will help other potential book- buyers, more than your review based on feelings. A 150-350 word review is a good Christian book review.
Christian authors need the support of Christian readers. One of the best ways Christian readers can do that, besides buying their books, is to review them. Remember that as a Christian Book Reviewer you a greater responsibility. The authors are trying to honor the Lord, so you as the reviewer need prayerfully to focus on the content and leave an honest review.
