A MUST HAVE Jan 15, 2008
This dicitionary is a must have. It is the "bible" for theological terms. If you are serious about becoming sound in your theological studies buy this without hesitation. I am a grad student working on my M.A. in seminary and i use this dictionary exhaustively.
Excellent resource May 12, 2007
From "a capella" to "epistemology" from "implicit faith" to "Zwinglianism," this is an excellent resource for learning theological terms or brushing up on those which have grown foggy in the mind over time. Great for pastors, reverends, priests, seminarians and lay ministers of all sorts.
Concise and Precise Jan 10, 2007
