Our rating system is unique
Reality Calling is focused on the spiritual content of the books. Because of that, the overall rating given by the reviewer at the top of the post rates the book by incorporating our content rating system. For a free booklet explaining this system, click here. The actual spiritual rating is given in the five-part system seen at the bottom of this post.
- One star: Clean Read. Our lowest rating. It’s for books that are clean but have no spiritual content. In other words, they are pure entertainment, fluff, and do nothing for the Kingdom of God.
- Two stars: The law & priesthood: We have a better covenant, so we should be doing better than only the prophets and priests hear from the Lord, and righteousness is determined by following the Law.
- Three stars: Traditional church: Here there is a Savior, maybe even a Father God and a Holy Spirit. But they are tied to church attendance, priestly wisdom, often only clergy can read the scriptures, and there are no transformed lives. God “works in mysterious ways”.
- Four stars: Born from above, Bible-based: Here we have people’s lives transformed. Born from above means something. All instruction comes from the scriptures and wise counsel from Godly leaders. The grade is lowered if salvations “magically” occur with a sinner’s prayer without any followup or discipleship.
- Five stars: Baptized in the Holy Spirit with power: Here the true believers have a close walk with their Savior, talking to Him and hearing from Him throughout the day—every day. They have the tools available to them which are talked about in I Corinthians 12 & 14. These are Acts of the Apostles believers.
As reviewers/posters, we can slide over the stars to give ratings in tenths. For example, you can see above, I rated this post as 4.5. The same is true for the visitor votes below.
We need your input to make this more useful
These started as merely David’s ideas. We want to make this as useful to you as we can—both for the other reviewers and for the readers. For example, we can allow the votes for story, characters, and spiritual level, plus the reader score to be open to everyone including the chicken Anonymous. But then you see David’s prejudice. So, please comment and what we are missing.
In the dashboard, under Settings, you’ll find a command for Yet Another Stars Ratings: Setting. The controls are there.
For everyone else
As you can see below, you will be able to submit votes for the story, the characters, and your rating for the spiritual level. Only people logged into the site, can vote here.
The final vote is for the readers of the site, giving a score to the posting.
