Overview


This second edition of the Westminster Dictionary of Theological Terms provides a comprehensive guide to nearly 7,000 theological terms, 1,000 more terms than the first edition. McKim's succinct definitions cover a broad range of theological studies and related disciplines: contemporary theologies, biblical studies, church history, ethics, feminist theology, global theologies, hermeneutics, liberation theology, liturgy, ministry, philosophy, philosophy of religion, postcolonial theology, social sciences, spiritually, worship, and Protestant, Reformed, and Roman Catholic theologies.

This new edition also includes cross-references that link readers to other related terms, commonly used scholarly abbreviations and abbreviations for canonical and deuterocanonical texts, an annotated bibliography, and a new introductory section that groups together terms and concepts, showing where they fit within particular theological categories. No other single volume provides the busy student, and the theologically experienced reader, with such easy access to so many theological definitions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"For many years the first edition of the Westminster Dictionary of Theological Terms has served wonderfully students, pastors, and interested laypersons. If 'words are the building blocks for Christian theology,' as Don McKim insightfully notes in the preface, then we must make sure that the new generation of theologians are introduced both to growing tradition and ever-increasing diversity of approaches in contemporary theology; the number of new terms added in this revised edition helps reach that noble goal. This magnificent resource written by the skillful hand of the Grand Old Man of 'all-things-theological-publishing' belongs to the library of every theological school and theologically interested person." --Veli-Matti Karkkainen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary and Docent of Ecumenics, University of Helsinki, Finland

"Authoritative. Illuminating. Easy to use. There is no finer, more comprehensive dictionary of theological terms available today. I highly recommend it." --William Stacy Johnson, Arthur M. Adams Professor of Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary

"The new edition of this handy reference work is most welcome. Featuring a broad range of brief, clearly written entries, this dictionary is a useful guide for Christian readers of all kinds." --Amy Plantinga Pauw, Henry P. Mobley, Jr., Professor of Doctrinal Theology, Louisville Presbyterian Seminary
