Christianity is a faith built upon the Word and understood through words, both written and spoken, handed down for centuries. But many of the terms used in theological writings are unfamiliar. For the Christian desiring a clear understanding of these terms, this book offers concise definitions of six hundred of the most significant words at the heart of the Christian faith, including terms related to a wide variety of topics from doctrinal to church practice and theology to church history. Important events, movements, and historical documents are covered, as well as relevant philosophical concepts for understanding events, debates, and ideas that have shaped Christian theology through history.
