About the Author:

Kelly M. Kapic (PhD, King's College London) is professor of theological studies at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia. He is the author or editor of numerous books including A Little Book for New Theologians, God So Loved He Gave, Communion with God, Mapping Modern Theology, Sanctification, and Pocket Dictionary of the Reformed Tradition.

Wesley Vander Lugt (Ph.D., St. Andrews University) is lead pastor of Warehouse 242 in Charlotte, North Carolina. He earned an M.Div. from Covenant Theological Seminary, a B.A. in history from Covenant College, and has been actively involved in Christian ministry for eight years in Scotland, Mexico and the United States.

Review:

"I have found it enjoyable as a learned, accurate, and readable review of things that matter to me, and I could see it as a resource for a pre-seminary course on the Reformed tradition." (Stuart R. Jones, New Horizons, June 2014)

"The 'pocket' dictionaries are quite handy. Pick them up and keep them near your desk. I use them regularly in preparing myself to talk with others about religious matters and they don't take up much shelf space." (Chris Reeves, Truth Magazine, May 2014)

"Recommended as an affordable, quality resource for theology and history students." (Marianne Orme, Library Journal, June 1, 2013)

"In other words, every young 'Reformed' theologian and any theological student will benefit from this kind of accessible book. It will prove especially helpful for students who need quick information on major names and ideas." (Scot McKnight, professor of New Testament at Northern Seminary (Lombard, IL), from www.patheos.com/jesuscreed)

"For students of theology who have no home in a confessional tradition, this book will prove a valuable resource. Like the best travel guides, it orients newcomers to a strange new land (e.g., Calvinism, covenant theology), its leading lights (e.g., William Ames, Herman Bavinck, Karl Barth), their beliefs (e.g., common grace, infralapsarianism, sola scriptura) and customs (e.g., mortification, paedobaptism, worship), thereby enabling readers to understand and speak the language of its Reformed inhabitants. It may even prompt strangers to the tradition to become sojourners. And even when it does not, readers will find the book's value to be disproportionate to its small size." (Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)

"Only well-informed teachers can summarize large topics in a way that is both accurate and accessible. That is precisely what the authors of this pocket dictionary have achieved." (Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology & Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California)

"Kapic and Vander Lugt are to be commended for this fantastic resource to advance the learning of individuals and the awareness of the entire Reformed church regarding its foundations. The concise entries provide laypeople, as well as advanced scholars, with quick reference and remarkable insight regarding key aspects of our history and thought that easily escape memory or get lost in general impression." (Bryan Chapell, chancellor, Covenant Theological Seminary)
