Big6 Steps for Writing a Book Review
Using the Big6 Skills process model approach, here are some steps that may help you work through writing your book review.

Step 1: Task Definition
Read the assignment thoroughly and make sure you understand what the requirements and expectations are. Is there anything you don't understand or aren't sure about? Ask questions!

Step 2: Information Seeking Strategies
What type of information do you need to complete the assignment? Which books are you most interested in from the list of possible titles? Are there additional resources (in this guide or elsewhere) that may help you in preparing to write your review? This step is about brainstorming on what sources you might need to look for and what may help you complete the assignment.
     An important note: while you might think it helpful to read someone else's review of the book you intend to review, it is best to avoid looking at someone else's review of your selected book. This will help you to develop your own independent, scholarly voice.

Step 3: Location and Access
This is when you go to the library and/or look things up on the Internet. You will locate the book your reviewing and any additional resources that you think might be helpful to your process.
     As you do a quick skim of your sources, you may find that they lead you to other sources or that there are additional sources you may need to identify by revisiting Step 2.

Step 4: Use of Information
This is the intense stage of reading the book you are reviewing. If you aren't sure about how to write a book review, this step may also include reading a few book reviews for other books (not the one you are reviewing) to better understand the genre and style. Use the questions in the assignment guidelines to help track your critical engagement with the book as you read.
     As you read the book your are reviewing, you may find it helpful to consult outside sources to round out your knowledge of certain concepts or topics. This is not a research paper, however, and consulting outside sources is not necessary. If you choose to engage in additional research, you will repeat steps 2, 3, and 4. 

Step 5: Synthesis
This is the writing stage. You'll want to organize your notes from reading the book and put them into a book review format. Be sure you understand the preferred format and MLA Style for your references and citations. Most will find it necessary to only cite the book you are reviewing and will not cite additional sources. It is a good idea to draft your book review several days before the due date to allow yourself time to reread it and revise it before turning it in. 

Step 6: Evaluation
When you have finished the assignment, take a step back and ask yourself, "How did it go?" Are you happy with what you are turning in? Do you still have questions that are unanswered? Are there any parts of the process (Step 1 through Step 5) that you would do differently next time? What have you learned about the course material, book reviews, writing, and your own creative process?
Online Resources for Writing Book Reviews
"Writing Theological Book Reviews" by the librarians at Trinity College in the University of Toronto is a comprehensive guide for writing book reviews. It breaks the process down into four parts: prepare to read and review, read the book, organize your thoughts, and write the review.

A Sample Book Review can be found on McAfee School of Theology's website. This student paper may provide a helpful glimpse into one way a theological book review can be formatted for a seminary class. Please note that this is a sample from another school and the requirements of your assignment at LTS may differ greatly. This sample also uses the Chicago style for references, which is different from the MLA style adopted by LTS.
