This classic one-volume reference work has been appreciated for decades. It is now substantially expanded and revised to focus on a variety of theological themes, thinkers and movements.
From African Christian Theology to Zionism, this volume of historical and systematic theology offers a wealth of information and insight for students, pastors and all thoughtful Christians. Over half of the more than eight hundred articles are new or rewritten with hundreds more thoroughly revised. Fully one-third larger than its predecessor, this volume focusing on systematic and historical theology has added entries and material on theological writers and themes in North America and around the world. Helpful bibliographies have also been updated throughout.
Over three hundred contributors form an international team of renowned scholars including Marcella Altaus-Reid, Richard Bauckham, David Bebbington, Kwame Bediako, Todd Billings, Oliver Crisp, Samuel Escobar, John Goldingay, Tremper Longman III, John McGuckin, Jennifer McNutt, Michael J. Nasir-Ali, Bradley Nassif, Mark Noll, Anthony Thiselton, John Webster and N. T. Wright.
This new edition combines excellence in scholarship with a high standard of clarity and profound insight into current theological issues. Yet it avoids being unduly technical. Now an even more indispensable reference, this volume is a valuable primer and introduction to the grand spectrum of theology.

Stephen R. Holmes (Ph.D. Kings College London) is a Baptist Minister and Lecturer in Theology at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. Presently he is working on a book on the theology of John Calvin, and a popular level book on the atonement, offering a cautious defence of penal substitution. He plans further work on the atonement, including conference papers, contributions to books, and a monograph, on the doctrine of God; this will begin with a monograph on the history of Trinitarian doctrine, but will focus on differing estimations of the relationship between Trinitarian and Christological dogma, and the perfections of God. Selected publications: God of Grace and God of Glory: An Account of the Theology of Jonathan Edwards(Edinburgh and Grand Rapids, MI: T&T Clark and Eerdmans, 2000); The Practice of Theology (with Colin Gunton and Murray Rae) (London: SCM Press, 2001); Listening to the Past: The Place of Tradition in Theology (Carlisle and Grand Rapids, MI: Paternoster Press and Baker Academic, 2002); The Use of the Bible in Pastoral Practice: A Reader (ed., with Paul Ballard) (DLT; 2005).
