New Dictionary of Theology
on 14 October 2012
I embarked on a course in Theology at my local Chuch and felt the need of a specialist dictionary. When I saw the illustration of this dictionary on the Amazon web-site I was thinking in terms of a Collins Little Gem format. However, in actuality the book is almost the size of a family Bible.
I have since dipped into it on many occasions and am overwhelmed by its coverage. It is wrong to call it a dictionary; an alphabetically ordered text book would be nearer the mark.
I am well pleased with The New Dictionary of Theology, my copy may have been produced several years ago in 1988 but how can such a work be considered out-of-date. The binding is sound, the condition is good, and it contains more words than I am likely to read at my rather advanced age.
