For the Christian desiring a more clear and robust understanding of these terms, this book offers concise definitions of six hundred of the most significant words at the heart of the Christian faith, including terms related to:

· doctrine (e.g., the atonement, the church)
· biblical concepts (e.g., Messiah, Son of Man)
· church practices (e.g., anointing of the sick, immersion)
· philosophical concepts (e.g., a priori, compatibilism)
· people (e.g., Thomas Aquinas, John Wesley)
· councils (e.g., Councils of Nicea I and II, Council of Trent)
· movements (e.g., Protestantism, Pentecostalism)
· documents (e.g., the Chalcedonian Creed, Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy)
· and more
