Praise for the Print Edition

Nothing is left out of this mammouth-sized dictionary. . . . This dictionary reaches back into the deep and monumental two-thousand year history of Christianity and grasps the principle peoples, places, things, philosophies and theologies, missionaries and musicians, heretics and saints, generals and soldiers, poets and historians, all the way to the kings' courts and the Popes' councils. This dictionary is remarkably useful. . . .
