Asking questions about theological matters is a good thing. Getting correct answers to those questions is even better. Respected theologian Millard J. Erickson offers this book to contribute to both of those ends.
The Concise Dictionary of Theology is a resource to be kept close at hand during class sessions and independent reading. The second edition of this theologian's companion seeks to bring the original dictionary up to date by supplementing it with pertinent ideas and persons from the past 15 years. The emphasis remains, though, upon the first 19 centuries of the Christian era, since students have greater familiarity with recent thought than with earlier historical figures and movements. Erickson's clear, succinct definitions provide every student of theology -- whether a beginner or a seasoned learner -- with the necessary help they'll need in their quest for understanding.
