Every author wishes his work to be recognised and well received whatever his subject may be but for the writers of religious publications he or she must be prepared for some opposition to any views expressed. To be helpful a reviewer must be positive in building up a very good reason for expressing any sort of doubt or opposition. In this case one must have a very clear understanding of their subject and a competent ability to express their viewpoints acceptably. A good review will contribute to understanding the subject dealt with to the benefit of all.
In the reviews which follow we hope this aim has been achieved.
