This classic one-volume reference work has been appreciated for decades. It is now substantially expanded and revised to focus on a variety of theological themes, thinkers and movements. From African Christian Theology to Zionism, this volume of historical and systematic theology offers a wealth of information and insight for students, pastors and all thoughtful Christians. Over half of the more than eight hundred articles are new or rewritten with hundreds more thoroughly revised. Fully one-third larger than its predecessor, this volume focusing on systematic and historical theology has added entries and material on theological writers and themes in North America and around the world. Helpful bibliographies have also been updated throughout. Over three hundred contributors form an international team of renowned scholars including Marcella Altaus-Reid, Richard Bauckham, David Bebbington, Kwame Bediako, Todd Billings, Oliver Crisp, Samuel Escobar, John Goldingay, Tremper Longman III, John McGuckin, Jennifer McNutt, Michael J. Nasir-Ali, Bradley Nassif, Mark Noll, Anthony Thiselton, John Webster and N. T. Wright. This new edition combines excellence in scholarship with a high standard of clarity and profound insight into current theological issues. Yet it avoids being unduly technical. Now an even more indispensable reference, this volume is a valuable primer and introduction to the grand spectrum of theology.

NeilSafford, AZAge: 45-54Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5It gets the job done; but there is an obvious Calvinist slantOctober 24, 2017NeilSafford, AZAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I wanted a dictionary or a smallish encyclopedia that dealt with theological terms and definitions. This dictionary fills that want. It does what I want. It has a few disappointments. There is an obvious pro-Calvinism slant in its organization and author choices for the various articles. It seems to me the editors would have assigned experts on current theological approaches rather than experts AGAINST those approaches. Theologians who hold to particular theological approaches definitely know the arguments against their approaches and can explain them in less hostile ways.
From my reading through the various terms that immediately interest me, the writers did represent the definitions fairly accurately; and that's what I wanted.
Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Outstanding Dictionary!May 19, 2016Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5IVP continues to uphold its well-earned reputation in quality reference works with this revised work. It is essentially a new work in that so many articles were enlarged. The material covered also differs from the first edition because another volume, IVPs New Dictionary of Biblical Theology had already pulled out that material. This volume focuses exclusively on historical and systematic theology in its massive 1000 pages.
The list of contributors is impressive. The scholarship is of the highest quality and none of the articles I read seemed to be done in haste. You might make the mistake of forgetting a subject would actually be categorized as biblical theology and search in vain, but if you are looking for historical or systematic theology subjects you likely wont fail to find an entry here. At least I couldnt.
Besides the great entries on all the theological concepts, I really enjoyed the biographical entries on the great theologians. They even had an entry for Charles Spurgeon! They purposely included articles on global theology and theological trends of our day.
The book is attractive and a joy to peruse. It will serve as an outstanding reference for many years. I loved it!
