4-MAT Book Review: White Text Assignment Instructions
A 4-MAT Book Review system is a way of responding to readings, lectures, and life experiences that requires the learner to interact with new ideas on several levels. It includes the following:
Abstract: Summarize what you have read, proving you comprehend the reading by writing a no-nonsense summary. The abstract is not a commentary or listing of topics but rather an objective summary from the reader’s viewpoint.
Concrete Response: Relate a personal life experience that this book triggered in your memory. Relate your story in first person, describing the action and quoting the exact words you remember hearing or saying. In the teaching style of Jesus, this is a do-it-yourself parable/case study/confession. You will remember almost nothing you have read unless you make this critical, personal connection. What ‘video memory’ began to roll as you read the book? This is your chance to tell your story and make new ideas your own.
Reflection: This is the critical thinking part of the review. Describe what questions pop up for you in response to what you have read. Keep a notepad handy as you read. Outsmart the author by asking better questions than he or she raised in the book. Explain how the author could have made the book better or more appealing to those in your field of service. One way to begin this section is by stating what bothered you most about the book. This is not a place to provide an endorsement or affirmation of the book.
Action: So, what are you going to do about it? Provide 2 action steps that describe what changes you are going to make in your life, ministry, and/or work as a result of your reading. Actions steps must be measurable and reveal a commitment to a specific time, specific people, and identified changes.
Your 4-MAT Book Review must be 1,300-1,800 words, contain at least 1 scholarly reference (other than the assigned textbook) and 1 biblical reference, and follow current Turabian format (including a title page, numbered pages with properly formatted footnotes and a bibliography).
Abstract – 400-600 words including a minimum of 2 footnotes to the textbook being reviewed.
Concrete Response – 250-300 words in first person.
Reflection – 250-300 words.
Action – Two action steps described in 250-300 words.
