Reviews and Recommendations are posts containing either book reviews written by Crux staff or guest bloggers, or recommended reading lists from staff or professors at the Toronto School of Theology or other institutions for whom we supply textbooks.
Reviews are both descriptive and evaluative. The point of a blog review is to help you figure out whether you will find this book interesting or helpful. If there are reasons we think this book might be not interesting or helpful to some people, we will say so. Reviews do not just gush about how great a book is, or rant about how terrible it is.
Recommended reading lists are compiled with input from a variety of people with some expertise or experience. Treat these as you would a bibliography in a book you enjoyed — a list of books that people have found helpful and interesting through their experience.
