Christianity Today hailed the Evangelical Dictionary of Theology as "a work of responsible evangelical scholarship." For 15 years this comprehensive work has provided pastors, teachers, and students alike with a balanced overview of important theological trends.
The Evangelical Dictionary of Theology gives you over 1,250 articles that focus on systematic and historical theology including:
• Important figures in theology (Finney, Luther, Wesley, Tillich)
• Pivotal events (Diet of Worms, Synod of Dort, the Great Awakening, Vatican I & II)
• Theological movements (Arminianism and Calvinism, the Charismatic movement, Fundamentalism)
A theological perspective in a convenient format The articles in this comprehensive dictionary take you beyond simple definitions or descriptions. They provide a detailed discussion of the spiritual aspects of their subjects. For example, the article on the difficult topic of “predestination” (see sample excerpt) involves the reader in an honest, in-depth discussion of what the Scriptures say regarding man's individual freedom and responsibility and God's ultimate sovereignty.
