4-MAT BOOK REVIEW INSTRUCTIONS
The 4-MAT 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.
Please use the following format in preparing 4-MAT Book Reviews:
1. ABSTRACT. Summarize what you have read, boiling the book down into 400–600 words
(no more than 2 pages). Prove you comprehend the readings 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. Abstract equals “boiled down.” This section should
include a minimum of 2 footnotes* to the text being reviewed. (*in text citations if you
are using APA style)
2. CONCRETE RESPONSE. Get vulnerable! In no less than 250 words and no more than 1
page, relate a personal life experience that this book triggered in your memory. Relate
your story in first person, describing action, and quoting 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? This is your chance to
tell your story and make new ideas your own.
3. REFLECTION. This is the critical thinking part of the review (not critical in the sense of
negative, but in the sense of questioning). In no less than 250 words and no more than 1
page, describe what questions pop up for you in response to what you have read. Keep a
rough-note sheet at hand as you read. Outsmart the author by asking better questions than
he/she raised in the book. Tell 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.
4. ACTION. So what are you going to do about it? In 400–600 words (no less than 1 page
and no more than 2 pages) provide 2 actions that describe what changes you are going to
make in your life, ministry, and/or work as a result of your reading. Actions should be
measurable and reveal a commitment to specific time, specific people, and identified
5. APA style which includes title page, pagination, citations and Reference page.
