Welcome to CLJ!

The Christian Library Journal is distinctive as a professional review publication in that we look at books from a Christian worldview, noting the values found in the text. While a book may include ungodly, immoral, or indecent episodes, we look for redemption and resolution. We also recognize that evil exists, and not all things will be redeemed, nor all problems resolved.
