We aim to review important books in Pentecostal studies, plus other theological, philosophical, historical and social scientific books which we believe will be of interest to readers of the journal.

Most reviews are invited by the book review editor, but we will consider unsolicited reviews.

 There is no particular length or prescribed format for reviews, though reviewers are asked to be concise, and most reviews are around 1000 words.  Reviews may be edited for length, clarity, style, and tone. Any conflict of interest by reviewer should be declared.

 A review should briefly summarise the book and place it in context.  The most important part of a review is the evaluation, which should not be merely an expression of the reviewer’s opinion of the book, but a well-evidenced argument about the value of the book for readers of the journal.
