You will notice common sign posts in all our reviews. All books will be rated on a scale of 1 through 5. This will follow suite with the star system on Goodreads. 3 means that the book has met its own expectations with no major theological concerns. If I rate the book less than three, the book didn’t deliver on its own promise or there were major theological concerns. Anything above a 3 and the book met its own expectation but it also excelled in its presentation.
I will also connect you with the publisher and give you a link to purchase the book from Amazon. Also, a lot of the book i receive have been provided by the publisher for the purpose of review. I am not required by the publisher to give a positive review. By purchasing the book through our Amazon link you will help support Practice of Piety.
Finally, I will give a scale for reading level (Leisurely :: Easy :: Moderate :: Difficult). Leisurely is approachable for all ages and all reading ability (think pop Christian literature, children’s books, or devotional reading). Easy is approachable for most young readers and adults with basic reading skills (think theological devotional reading). Moderate is approachable for those with a more in-depth background in theology or a developed reading habit (think systematic or biblical theologies). Difficult is approachable for those with formal training in theology who have developed a mature and discerning reading habit and also may require a basic understanding of certain fields in biblical criticism (think of an examination of a theological theme).
