    DescriptionBased on the highly acclaimed Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, this is an indispensable guide for both students and the general reader. Over 5,000 entries provide full coverage of theology, patristic scholarship, churches and denominations, the church calendar and organization, and the Bible, as well as entries on theologians, philosophers, painters, musicians, and writers of religious works. The revised second edition has been fully updated to reflect recent changes in the church. It includes increased coverage of the church in Latin America, Eastern Churches, issues on moral theology, and developments stemming from the Second Vatican Council, Black Churches, Christian attitudes to Jews, Feminist Theology, Holiness Movement, Liberation Theology, and ordination of women. This handy, concise volume is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Christian history.
