9780415862110: Companion Encyclopedia of Theology (Routledge Companion Encyclopedias)

The Companion Encyclopedia of Theology provides a comprehensive guide to modern theological thought. An international team of theologians and practitioners of both the Christian and Jewish faiths investigate and consider aspects of theology in 48 self-contained articles. Neither partisan and denominational, nor detached and abstract, this Companion explores the resources and applications of theology in the light of Christianity's place in the modern world.
The Structure
The Companion Encyclopedia of Theology is divided into six parts. The first three deal with major foundational aspects of Western theological reflection:
* the Hebrew and Christian Bible
* the Tradition
* the contribution of Philosophy
The second half of the Companion is concerned with application:
* in relation to Spirituality
* in relation to contemporary Ethics
* in relation to issues in and aspects of present-day theological construction
The 48 essays are descriptive, informative and analytical; their wide-ranging content is bound into a unified perspective by the editors' general introduction and the introductions to each of the six parts. At the end of each article, there are suggestions for further reading and the work is concluded with a comprehensive index.
This Companion Encyclopedia is a valuable source of reference for students, teachers and both lay and clerical practitioners of Christian and Jewish theology.
Key Features
* Broad Coverage - contains 48 in-depth essays covering both the history and application of Western theological thought
* International Authorship - written in non-technical language by a distinguished team of editors and authors from both Christian and Jewish faiths
* Balanced Approach - discusses and analyses the key issues without imposing any single viewpoint
* Clearly Presented - at the end of each article, there are suggestions for further reading and the work contains a comprehensive index

Review:

.."."it will serve as a complement to theological reference works written from traditional and even contemporary evangelical points of view. All comprehensive theological collections that can afford this work should purchase it." Library Journal."
7/15/95
..."this is a very relevant and excellent reference tool to which church librarians can turn and refer their users for many practical and often sought-after research questions.."
-" Church and Synagogue Library Association Newsletter, 9/96
..."not only a harvest of information, but also a rich and creative theological work in its own right..... Essential for any good theology library, this work could be as useful in church and school settings as in higher education.."
-" Theology, 7/1/96
"[T]his work is probably as well written as any collection of essays can be ... [T]his introductory textbook will easily pass muster in most British Universities and divinity schools attached to American universities."
-"Ashland Theological Journal
