Item Description...
Overview
This book is a unique rapid reference to those men and women of all denominations who have, over the last two millenia, contributed to the life, history, and study of Christianity in all its facets, or in whose lives Christianity has been a significant factor. Entries are concise and accessible, although for key figures longer essays have been written. Its coverage ranges from major figures of the immediate post-New Testament era to those recently deceased, and has a global perspective, offering in-depth coverage of Africa, India and China as well as Orthodoxy - Greek and Russian. This reference work will prove essential in many contexts: for general readers interested in Church history and the study of Christian faith, in libraries, and as a study aid for students, researchers and scholars.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A valuable tool  May 15, 2008
This book is a joy to use. The biographical entries are both succinct and adequate. It covers a good balance of Protestant, Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox figures and avoids the myopia of some similar volumes. I have used several Christian biographical reference books; this is my favorite.
 
Disappointing Reference for my particular research  Feb 7, 2008
I can only comment on this reference as it was used for my research. I am writing a book about the versions of the Bible in English. In doing that I have compiled a list of about 1,587 individuals involved in revising, editing or translating different versions of the Bible. Of that number only 54 were listed in this reference. The majority of those listed were Catholics. This work was not very useful in my particular work.
 
What is the purpose of this book?  Jun 8, 2006
This is just a quick overview of the book as I have just bought it. I find that the author's selection of who's who rather inconsistent. There are indeed many personalities of the bygone era and some not so well-known ones; you will definitely find someone whom you don't know even if you are a champion of quizzes and trivia or simply extremely well-versed in this area... But I found it puzzling that I did not find in its entries "Louis Berkhof" but "Charles Hodge" was there. "Matthew Henry" was present but not "Matthew Poole", why this is so, I don't understand. Is it an intentional or careless omission? It is comprehensive in one way yet lacking. I find it is rather lackadaisical. I suppose there are better books at this price. I gave it 3 stars for its contents but not its treatment of each entry, which is rather cursory.
