Reading Religion (RR) is an open book review website published by the American Academy of Religion. Launched in 2016, the site provides up-to-date coverage of scholarly publishing in religious studies, reviewed by scholars with special interest and/or expertise in the relevant subfields. Reviews are concise, comprehensive, and timely.
RR reviews scholarly books about religion. Reviewers do not need to be members of the AAR, or be professional religious studies scholars. We welcome reviewers from diverse fields and viewpoints who engage with the topic of religion.
