12 Top Christian Book Reviewers

In Feast On a Good Book, I asked the question, 

“How do you know whether a book is worth buying and reading?”

“A recommendation by someone you trust sure does help.” 

I then linked you to my RPM Ministries Book Review site, plus provided direct links to nearly two dozen of my favorite book reviews. 

What About Other Christian Book Reviewers?

There are many excellent Christian book reviewers on the Net. So, today I’m linking you to folks whose reviews I always benefit from—even when I don’t always agree with 100% of their review. 

All of these folks do much more on their blogs than review books. 

By the way, “Christian book reviewers” means a Christian who reviews books from a Christian worldview. This is different from focusing on reviews of Christian books from any perspective. Ponder that one…
