Book Description

Review 'For many years the first edition of the Westminster Dictionary of Theological Terms has served wonderfully students, pastors, and interested laypersons. If 'words are the building blocks for Christian theology,' as Don McKim insightfully notes in the preface, then we must make sure that the new generation of theologians are introduced both to growing tradition and ever-increasing diversity of approaches in contemporary theology; the number of new terms added in this revised edition helps reach that noble goal. This magnificent resource written by the skillful hand of the Grand Old Man of 'all-things-theological-publishing' belongs to the library of every theological school and theologically interested person.' --Veli-Matti Karkkainen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary and Docent of Ecumenics, University of Helsinki, Finland'Authoritative. Illuminating. Easy to use. There is no finer, more comprehensive dictionary of theological terms available today. I highly recommend it.' --William Stacy Johnson, Arthur M. Adams Professor of Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary'The new edition of this handy reference work is most welcome. Featuring a broad range of brief, clearly written entries, this dictionary is a useful guide for Christian readers of all kinds.' --Amy Plantinga Pauw, Henry P. Mobley, Jr., Professor of Doctrinal Theology, Louisville Presbyterian Seminary --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Read more About the Author Donald K.
