Restoration Quarterly is devoted to advancing knowledge and understanding of New Testament Christianity, its backgrounds, its history, and its implications for the present age. Articles in the journal do not necessarily represent the view of the editor, the editorial board, or the corporate board of Restoration Quarterly. The editor is responsible for the selection of material, but the responsibility for opinions expressed and accuracy of facts rests solely with the individual author. Manuscripts dealing with the analysis, interpretation, and application of biblical principles and related topics are encouraged.

Restoration Quarterly is indexed in Banque d'information bibliographique en patristique, Elenchus bibliographicus biblicus, New Testament Abstracts, Old Testament Abstracts, Religion Index, Religious and Theological Abstracts, Restoration Serials index, and Zeitschrifteninhaltsdienst Theologie.Restoration Quarterly is published by the Restoration Quarterly Corporation, P.

Book Review Submission Guidelines

  1. Restoration Quarterly currently publishes two types of reviews.
  2. a. Shorter reviews of around 400 words. These reviews should state clearly what the book tries to accomplish, something of its contents, its strengths and weaknesses, and the audience it will most benefit.
  3. b. Featured reviews of around 800 words. These reviews cover books that are of special importance in their field or hold special relevance to our readers. They should address the same concerns as the shorter reviews. In addition, they can deal at greater length with issues of method. They should put the book in the larger context of its field, or perhaps relate the issues it raises to the heritage of the Stone-Campbell movement.
  4. Send reviews in Word (PC compatible).
  5. Type the bibliographical information at the top of the first page using the following format: Title (Italicize), by Author or Editor(s) in upper case. Publisher location: publisher, year. 000 pp. $00.00. For example: Christobiography: Memory, History, and the Reliability of the Gospels, by CRAIG S. KEENER. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2019. 743 pp. $54.99.
  6. Type your name and the location of your institution at the end of the review as follows: Harding University JOAN B. DOE
  7. Please proofread your review carefully, paying attention to proper names, technical terms, dates, and numbers. We will edit your review for grammar and style. No footnotes please.
  8. Please try to keep your review within the assigned length. Many reviewers will wish they could write a longer review, but such limits will help us cover as many books as possible. If your review is too long, we will shorten it or return it to you for trimming.

Please send reviews to:
