Reviewing books on Amazon
One of our readers, The Persistent Widow, has been busy reviewing books on Amazon. You might like to visit her reviews and vote on whether you find them helpful.
And here is a review by another one of our readers:
There are many books on Amazon that are relevant to Domestic Abuse and Christianity which our readers might like to review. If you get a review published on Amazon, let us know in a comment on this thread, so that others can vote on it if they wish.
When adding comments below, please give links to books and reviews, to make it easier for everyone. If you are giving a link to a review, make sure you give the permalink (click on the word ‘permalink’ at the end of each particular review on Amazon’s website, and it will take you to the permanent URL for that review).
In addition to the books that our readers above have already reviewed, here are some books which might bear reviewing. To create your own review on Amazon, go to the Amazon page for the book that you want to review, click on the ‘Reviews’ link next to the star rating, then click on the little box that says “create your own review”. If you have further books to suggest for the list below, feel free to do so in a comment in this thread.
- Pastoral Leadership for Manhood and Womanhood, especially the chapter ‘Pastoral Responses to Domestic Violence’ by David Powlison, Paul Tripp and Edward Welch. (CBMW used to have the chapter available as a PDF for personal use but I see they’ve taken it down.)
If you review only that chapter, be careful to say that you are only reviewing one chapter, not the whole book.
- The Divorce Dilemma: God’s Last Word on Lasting Commitment, by John MacArthur
- Why Me? Comfort for the Victimized, by David Powlison
- Living with an Angry Spouse: Help for Victims of Abuse, by Edward Welch
- Love Must be Tough: New Hope for Marriages in Crisis, by James Dobson
- Desperate Marriages: Moving Towards Hope and Healing in your Relationship, by Gary Chapman
- Hope for the Separated: Wounded Marriages Can Be Healed, by Gary Chapman
- Lies Women Believe, And the Truth that Sets them Free, by Nancy Leigh DeMoss (we wrote a post about this here)
- The Peacemaker, by Ken Sande (we have a post about this here)
And for those who want to review our own books on Amazon, here are the links:
- A Cry For Justice, by Jeff Crippen [*Affiliate link]
- Not Under Bondage, by Barbara Roberts [*Affiliate link]
And here are links to Dr George Simon’s books. We would love our readers to review his books, as that is one way we can show gratitude to him for writing guest posts for this blog. And it will help spread the word about how good his books are. The more pastors, counselors and supporters of victims read George Simon’s work, the more victims will be shepherded to safety rather than sent back into the mouths of the lions. (Note: these three links are Amazon Affiliate links)
- The Judas Syndrome: Why Good People Do Awful Things [*Affiliate link] (this is his latest book so it has the fewest reviews and could benefit from a few more)
- In Sheep’s Clothing: Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People [*Affiliate link]
- Character Disturbance: the phenomenon of our age [*Affiliate link]
When writing a review on Amazon, you can add a product link to any book that you are mentioning within the body-text of your review. For example, if you are writing a critical review of a certain book, you might want to mention that another book is better than the one you are criticizing. It’s easy to add a product link for the book you more strongly recommend: just look for the little grey box that says “insert a product link” and follow the prompts.
