Reviews - What do customers think about The Complete Book of Orthodoxy: A Comprehensive Encyclopedia and Glossary of Orthodox Terms, History, Theology, and Facts?
Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware Jun 17, 2007
The title of the book is extremely misleading. The actual title should be, "A Limited Glossary of Orthodox Terms, History, Theology, and Facts."
This volume is not a "Comprehensive Encyclopedia" in any manner. Don't make the mistake I made and buy this book, go to Wikipedia and find much more detailed content, or purchase an actual Encyclopedia of Christian thought.
The book itself has some useful information, the content is just not what was advertised in the title.
Too many gaps Dec 21, 2004
Not a good reference work. The entries are to short, and the author did not manage to utilize the hundreds of pages well enough. 2 stars for the good concept, which is much needed, but this book is only half-way there. Get the Oxford Christian Dictionary instead!
