'This is an indispensable, immensely rich, genuinely theological reference work. Its entries offer specifically theological examination of a comprehensive array of theological topics and biographies by an inclusive range of theological voices. And it integrates those entries in an ingenious way. The inter-connections among the multiple conceptual perspectives of its entries on core theological topics amount to a map of systematic theology.' David Kelsey, Yale University
'What sets the The Cambridge Dictionary apart is its format … fills a troublesome void in theological reference texts.' Kent Eliers, Theology Forum
'The volume is ecumenical and includes a wide range of perspectives from a wealth of contributors. It should be recommended to theological and university libraries and … to students starting out on a theological career.' Jason A. Fout, Anglican Theological Review
'This one-volume work is intended to be 'coherent and capacious, but neither partisan nor blinkered'. It accomplishes this … by including many prominent scholars, entries on the most current theological issues, and by touching on a variety of doctrinal topics, confessional orientations, and theological styles.' M. Y. Spomer, CHOICE
'This volume is both a comprehensive historical reference and a splendid outline of contemporary theological movements … Indeed, among the numerous theological dictionaries currently available, this volume stands alone above the crowd. Every academic library should have a copy.' David H. Jensen, Religious Studies Review
