Write a Book Review

The Wabash Center Journal on Teaching publishes short (500 word) reviews of books and resources about teaching and learning. Our Book Reviews call attention to and briefly describe books and other resources that help faculty develop as reflective teachers.

A good book review should:

  • briefly describe the scope and focus of the book
  • place the book in a larger context of scholarship about teaching
  • consider the book in relation to theological education or religious studies in the liberal arts
  • describe the value and usefulness that the book might have for busy faculty

To write a book review:

  • Select a book from the list below.
  • Send an email to the Book Review Editor (Mary Stimming, PhD) to have the book mailed to you.
  • Indicate the title of the book you wish to review.
  • Briefly indicate your advanced degree, teaching experience, and institutional affiliation.
  • Please submit the 500 word book review within 3 months of receiving the book. If you are unable to meet this schedule, please notify the Book Review Editor as soon as possible so that other arrangements can be made.
  • Please refer to the Guidelines for Writing Book Reviews

We welcome suggestions of books for review. Please contact the Book Review Editor to discuss.
