Item Description...
Overview
As in any academic discipline, the Church has developed a rather highly specialized vocabulary that often leaves lay Christians in the dark. Yet this very vocabulary was intended to communicate important aspects, shades of meaning and insights into Christian truth and teaching. Thus the need for a dictionary to help those without special training understand these words and benefit from them. The Compact Dictionary of Doctrinal Words presents over 550 entries that: *Provide thorough definitions for adequate explanation and insight in understandable, readable style and length. *Provide guidelines for further research. *Provide extensive cross-referencing. *Provide explanations concerning its relevance and practical application in today's world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Best for a quick answer.  Oct 29, 2005
I used this book all through my missionary training. I had 6 semesters of theology and I found this book indespensible for one use. This is the book that gives a truly concise definition for a word you are struggling to understand. This is by no means exhaustive, but I used it and still refer to it in the same way I refer to Websters when I need a definition.
 
A Pastors perspective  Feb 25, 2003
I have found this book by Terry L. Miethe to be very concise and accurate. While not completely exhaustive, Terry has given an unbiased look at various religious groups, cults and docternal positions. Many who find themselves in a particular sect, religiously speaking, may find themselves somewhat affended by the truth, the word of God tells us "The wounds of a friend are faithful", (Proverbs 27:6). Terry's intent is to educate not affend. I find this book an interesting resource for my study library as a quick reference for docternal topics and understanding.
