"This latest addition to IVP's Pocket Reference series contains over 300 alphabetically ordered terms, customs, doctrines, sacraments, prayers, and people. Authored by an accomplished theology professor and intended for beginners, entries are generally short paragraphs, cogently written and quick to the point. . . . This book would be very handy for the user uninformed on the basic tenets of Christianity or looking for quick information on Pentecost, gnosticism, liturgy, or sin, to cite a few examples." -- Michael Tosko, Booklist, March 1, 2018
