The Conviction To Lead

Book Review

Book Review:  Read the book by Albert Mohler The Conviction to Lead and write a 6-page review. This is not simply a summary of the book, but a review of the content. The Book Review must adhere to current Turabian format.


Details:   To complete the Book Review, write the review using the following structure:


Introduction (half-page maximum)

  • This must be a single but strong paragraph that reveals what you intend to show the reader. This is your “thesis statement.”
  • Include a brief review of background data about the book, author, and the topic of the book.


Summary (1–2 pages: no more than 20% of your review)

  • Do not state what every single chapter is about; instead, capture the main idea(s) of the book along with the underlining subtopics and themes.
  • Briefly overview what the book is about as well as the issues, themes, and solutions the author presents.
  • Identify the main thrust of the book and differentiate between the central and peripheral ideas.


Critical Interaction with the Book (2–4 pages: around 70% of your review)

  • Do not discuss your agreement or disagreement with the author’s perspective. Instead, try to recognize what the author’s points are and what theological issues are prevalent.
  • Document your assessment of the text. If you make a judgment of the author’s opinion, give an example along with a footnote to designate where this can be observed.
  • Where is the author coming from? What is his goal?
  • Does the author prove his point? Why or why not? How?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the author’s arguments?


Conclusion (half-page maximum)

  • Bring together all your interactions with the book and wrap up your review by conveying how well you think the author achieved his/her goals and to what degree his purpose was achieved.
  • In what ways does the book make you think?
  • With what questions does the author leave you?
