Overview

Edited by Biblical scholar James Hastings, Dictionary of the Apostolic Church (2 Vols.) contains all definitions of people, places, and theological terms from the book of Acts to the book of Revelation. With over 1,500 pages of summaries, maps, and abbreviations, there are over 100 Biblical scholars and pastors supplying the essays. More of an encyclopedia, this collection is the perfect resource for teachers, pastors, and anyone wanting a thorough yet concise summary of New Testament themes. The entries are easy to read yet theologically sound.

Like the other works of Hastings, this compilation seeks to aid pastors and general Bible readers in understanding Scripture. Dictionary of the Apostolic Church (2 Vols.) is an ideal resource along with Hastings’s A Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels (2 Vols.). Available as separate titles, they provide a comprehensive guide to the entire New Testament.
