Inter-Varsity Press Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms

Beginning to study theology is like stepping into a conversation that has been going on for two thousand years. How do you take part in this conversation---or even make sense of it---if you don't understand the vocabulary or know the contributions made by other participants?

The Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms is the perfect companion to your theological studies. Among its three hundred-plus definitions are:

  • English terms, from accomodation to wrath of God
  • foreign terms, from a posteriori to via media
  • theological movements and traditions, from the Alexandrian School to Wesleyanism
  • theologians, from Anselm of Canterbury to Ulrich Zwingli
Here is an affordable and easily accessible resource for your theological readings, lectures and writing assignments. It's a must-have for every beginning theological student!

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.
