Critical Review of Books in Religion has two major sections. The first section contains more extensive review articles. This volume focuses on computer technology and resources (the vast majority of this is very out of date). The second section contains shorter book reviews in several different religious categories. There is a third section that lists translations, new editions and reference works.
