Provides a simple and easy-to-understand definition of words.
"Helped me understand the relevant issues in class."
"The terms are relevant and it was nice to have a compact resource readily available."

These are just a few of the outstanding comments from students who class-tested a prepublication version of Saint Mary's PressĀ® Glossary of Theological Terms at schools such as The Catholic University of America, Marquette University, Seattle University, and Loyola Marymount University. This handy guide gives students the basic knowledge of Catholic theological terminology they need for further academic study and for a good, solid general understanding of the Catholic faith.

This glossary is the ideal resource for college instructors faced with introducing undergraduate students to Roman Catholic theology--and a highly useful companion for students who find introductory theology and religious studies confusing and challenging--and it is the logical first step toward Catholic theological literacy.

Here students get beginning definitions or working explanations that serve as the basis for helping them become involved in genuine theological dialogue, discussion, and discovery. The perfect supplement or companion for many different introductory theology and religious studies courses, the glossary is:

  • comprehensive in its inclusion of terms
  • concise in its definitions
  • very user-friendly
The entry for each term includes:
  • a reference to the language origin
  • an indication of the theological content
  • a summary statement of the contemporary meaning
An indispensable guide to the theological terms students will encounter as they begin--and continue--their studies, the Saint Mary's PressĀ® Glossary of Theological Terms is today's answer to the pressing need for improving Catholic literacy in today's beginning theology students.
