    I was hesitant to buy this book because I wasn't sure it would be very useful at first, but I am very glad that I bought it! I am about halfway through my first semester at a private Bible college, and I don't pick up my theology text books without grabbing this to study with. It takes a lot of common theology terms and gives them simple, concise definitions that are easy to understand.

    Whether you are new to theology or not, I definitely recommend this little dictionary! I do wish it had more terms in it, but it is a worthwhile investment for the small price you pay. It is great if you are looking for a book that simplifies the most common theology terms - whether for your own use or to explain them to someone else.

    So many simple Christian 'speak' terms are difficult to explain to someone who does not understand. This book can help define words and ideas.
