Faculty Contributions to Scholarly World

Book reviews submitted to academic journals

Providence faculty members have been busy teaching courses, attending committee meetings, and involving themselves in church, public, and academic society. A number of them have contributed book reviews to academic journals.

A book review serves a number of purposes. First, it tells other scholars about new research and ideas or new ways of thinking about old ideas. Book reviews also become an avenue where ideas are exchanged in brief among scholars. Finally, book reviews can often lead to a professor considering a text book for an upcoming course or future research.

The following Providence faculty members have recently published reviews.

Dr. Lissa Wray Beal
Dr. August Konkel
Dr. Patricia Janzen Loewen
Dr. David Johnson
