Editorial Reviews

"For students of theology who have no home in a confessional tradition, this book will prove a valuable resource. Like the best travel guides, it orients newcomers to a strange new land (e.g., Calvinism, covenant theology), its leading lights (e.g., William Ames, Herman Bavinck, Karl Barth), their beliefs (e.g., common grace, infralapsarianism, sola scriptura) and customs (e.g., mortification, paedobaptism, worship), thereby enabling readers to understand and speak the language of its Reformed inhabitants. It may even prompt strangers to the tradition to become sojourners. And even when it does not, readers will find the book's value to be disproportionate to its small size."
"Only well-informed teachers can summarize large topics in a way that is both accurate and accessible. That is precisely what the authors of this pocket dictionary have achieved."
"Kapic and Vander Lugt are to be commended for this fantastic resource to advance the learning of individuals and the awareness of the entire Reformed church regarding its foundations. The concise entries provide laypeople, as well as advanced scholars, with quick reference and remarkable insight regarding key aspects of our history and thought that easily escape memory or get lost in general impression."
