"This work brings theology into the twenty-first century, challenging and complementing afresh, while also affirming the historic beliefs of the Christian church. . . invaluable for those seeking to be informed as they enter distant cultures to teach, preach, and learn from fellow believers. Among the theological dictionaries this writer has reviewed, several claiming to be international, this is superior to all."--J. Scott Horrell, Bibliotheca Sacra, October-December 2010
"A major resource and a creative one at that which should find a place in any theological library."--Myk Habets, Pacific Journal of Baptist Research, October 2009
"This dictionary highlights the ways in which religion and theology are matters of international dialogue, how 'Christianity is going south, ' how the traditional Western perspective restricts our view and knowledge of things, and how new challenges and perspectives arise in the world today. The dictionary does not merely claim to be global - it proves that it really is."--Stuart Hannabuss, Reference Reviews, 2009
"A welcome first step in recognizing and engaging with these important non-Western perspectives. Recommended."--A. Limpitlaw, Choice, June 2009
"The impressibe book is a testimony to the vitality of evangelical theology and its claim for leadership within the ecumenical spectrum of theology."--International Review of Biblical Studies, 2008-2009
"Accessible and well-organised reference work will be a welcome addition to anyone's library. Significantly, entries by the editors William Dyrness and Veli-Matti Karkkainen are especially judicious, and it is their voice that sets the overall tone. This is a model dictionary in terms of cross-referencing, indexing and the provision of generally blanaced bibliographies."--Dr. Saxbee, Bishop of Lincoln, Church Times, February 27, 2009
"It is a book that will serve well in research libraries, seminaries, and the libraries of ministers who find themselves traveling much. It will also be useful to the one who desires to learn of the past and present differences in Christendom."--Pastoral Musings (, December 15, 2008
"A unique and fresh contribution to the field of Christian studies. . . Provides a breadth of coverage not found elsewhere."--John Jaeger, Journal of Religious and Theological Information, November 2010
