Editorial Reviews

"A comprehensive solid reference to well over three hundred terms that the Church frequently uses, with their definitions and their history. An ideal quick reference."
"Highly recommended."
"This little volume is small in size only. There are over 300 terms defined in this book. It is a quick reference to key people in church history such as Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin and a host of other major players. You can get a bird's-eye view without having to do long and arduous research. These books are affordable and to one who teaches, they are a handy quick reference."
"A Bible study resource that I can recommend for many reasons. The dictionary is small and easy to fit on a book shelf. It is of course economical. Church history is an interesting and important subject for any Christian who wants to understand the church: where it has been, and where it is going. Thanks Dr. Feldmeth, for giving the people in the pews an easy to use resource for getting a handle on that!"
"This is simple a great little resource for seminary students or really anyone who has at least a passing interest in becoming aquainted with some of the foundational figures, events and theological terms in the history of the church."
"Impressive. The artivles have a comprehensive view of church history touching on all the major traditions and denominations. Dates and essential content are conveyed in readable, clear prose. For a small source, the research and arrangement are very impressive. Anyone needing to take account of persons, movements, events and doctrines will find good material in the Pocket Dictionary."

    A must have. It has been very helpful in my studies of church history. It is also just small enough to carry in my purse.
