  • Summary:

    Over 200 international scholars from a variety of denominations have contributed to this outstanding, one-volume, comprehensive, reference book. Stressing the importance of events, persons, and theological concepts that have been significant to the Reformed tradition, these articles provide authoritative summaries and stimulating discussion.

    From Library Journal:
    “This is a good one-volume encyclopedia of the Reformed tradition. Short, signed articles by over 200 scholars cover major events, persons, and theological issues. It is especially useful for thumbnail biographies of less well-known figures like Thomas Manton or John Field. The articles are cross referenced. The reader must be aware, however, that “Reformed” here means strictly the faith rooted on John Calvin. Much of Protestantism, from Lutheranism on one side to Wesleyanism and the holiness movements on the other, receive little attention or are approached from a decidedly Calvinist perspective. Within these self-imposed limits, however, this is a good, quick reference book. Recommended for academic and public libraries.”
