    I have found this to be an excellent source of information on the Church and her history. If anyone is looking for a BIBLE DICTIONARY or a dictionary that will unequivocally uphold one's own personal biases, then this isn't the volume for them. That being said, I don't think one can find a more comprehensive treasure trove of ecclesial information condensed in a single volume. This will not crowd your bookshelf, but it might crowd your thinking.

    Great reference! Serves as a central 'go to' reference for facts concerning the comprehensive CE in, or when preparing for, education. Thorough definitions all CE topics from a multitude of reliable contributors.

    This is a very good dictionary. The entries are brief and to the point. Buyer beware, though, the book has a bias that is most definitely Roman Catholic. It speaks dismissively of Protestant movements such as Puritanism, denominations such as Presbyterianism, and doctrines such as the propitiation of God's anger against sinful humanity (it says propitiation means expiation). Also, it speaks approvingly of such doctrines as purgatory. If it had spoken with a neutral voice, this reference book would easily have been a five star item.
