At a time when many more students around the world are taking courses and seminars in theology and religious studies, some can be confused about the meaning of basic and even very important theological terms.
To help relieve this situation, the dictionary identifies and clarifies a thousand central terms, providing necessary information about their origin, the history of their usage, and their place in the story of Christianity. Fresh in its language and ecumenical in its style, this dictionary has already proved itself a valuable resource for thousands of students and teachers of theology and religious studies. The third, enlarged edition adds some further entries, updates other entries, includes two timelines, and indicates some essential bibliographical resources (both printed and online).
