Clear, Comprehensive, Essential Information on the World's Religions

With all of the different religions, sects, denominations, and belief systems out there, it can be difficult to separate fact from mere opinion, especially if we are relying solely on online sources that often have an ideological or political slant. How can we truly understand if we cannot even be sure we are getting the facts straight?

In this comprehensive resource, more than seventy-five evangelical scholars offer a thoroughly researched guide to Christianity, other world religions, and alternative religious views. The nearly five hundred entries include articles on movements, theological terms, and major historical figures. This dictionary is perfect for pastors, students, and anyone who wants ready access to reliable information on today's complex religious landscape. Contributors include Francis Beckwith, Robert Bowman, Winfried Corduan, Gary Habermas, Irving Hexham, and more.

"When studying the world religions, everyone needs a dictionary handy to look up terms, concepts, ceremonies, and key figures. This is one of the best tools available and will greatly enhance the study of the various religions. Concise, accurate, and informative articles will help anyone who wants to understand the beliefs and practices of the world's religions."--Patrick Zukeran, founder and executive director of Evidence and Answers and host of the radio show Evidence and Answers

"Having some knowledge of religion is imperative for intelligently understanding the complexities of building teams and relationships in life, plus it is just really interesting! You need to have The Evangelical Dictionary of World Religions for personal reference on your bookshelf."--Rev. Dr. Carson Pue, special assistant to the president and interim vice president of student life, Trinity Western University; president of Quadrant Leadership Inc.

"Now more than ever, Christians need to understand other religions. More and more of our neighbors are committed to one of the world religions, and the religions increasingly affect world affairs. This is a valuable resource for evangelicals seeking reliable information."--Gerald R. McDermott, Anglican Chair of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School; coauthor of A Trinitarian Theology of Religions
