Reviewers Wanted
Have you read an interesting book lately? Want to write a review on it for The Ooze?

The Faith section needs more book reviews. (I'm the Assistant Faith Editor, FYI).

Reviews of newer books are preferred, although I wouldn't mind publishing the occassional review of older stuff. We've never had anyone review C.S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters or Anita Diamant's The Red Tent, to give two examples. :)

Click here for a list of recent reviews. So far all of our Faith reviews have been of non-fiction books, but The Ooze accepts reviews of any genre.

Reviews range from 400-1800 words; most of them are about 800 words in length, although reviews of up to 4,500 words are accepted.

    it would be great to have your unique perspective not only on reviews but you can submit original articles as well in each section of TheOOZE.

    All voices are equal on TheOOZE and you don't have to wait for someone to ask or give you permission.

    BTW: you words will influence the quarter of a million visitors each month to the website...

    I didn't see Alan Mann's Atonement for a 'Sinless' Society, has that been done yet?

    Nope, it hasn't been done yet.

    If I thought I could write a review that sounded above my 5th grade book reports, I would totally do it. I love to read. I will ponder it, and maybe dig deep into the webs of my writing days. (Sorry I was a much better in math!)

    I wouldn't mind seeing a review of "God's Women Then and Now." Its a great exegesis of some of the portions of the bible that trouble women in the church.

    Hope you can find something of use, Michelle.

    But I understand if you decide not to - I'd never want to be on an Ooze volleyball team as I'm anything but coordinated. :)

    I wouldn't mind seeing a review of "God's Women Then and Now."

    Would you be interested in writing it?
