This original and authoritative dictionary concentrates upon theology - its biblical basis, systematic expression and historical development. The aim has been to provide a concise reference tool without in any way curtailing the comprehensive treatment of theological subjects.
Here are articles on such intriguing topics as the theology of African Independent Churches, new religious movements, Dutch Reformed theology in South Africa, black consciousness and human rights, and such interesting figures as Jacques Ellul, Abraham Kuyper, Michael Polanyi and Teilhard de Chardin.
Here too is reliable information on a wide range of subjects of interest to the general readers - abortion, angels, baptism in the Spirit, Bible translation, punishment, the sovereignty of God and many more.
