The Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms is the perfect companion to your theological studies. Among its 300-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

Logos Bible Software dramatically improves the value of this resource by enabling you to find what you’re looking for with unparalleled speed and precision. The Logos edition of Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms is completely searchable and will streamline your research time.
