Format: Hardcover
Different books are meant for different purposes. Some are meant to be read, devoured, and digested such that the substance of the material becomes part of your own. Other books serve more as a buffet table of tantalising morsels, to be gathered up as appetites warrant. The `Dictionary of Early Christian Literature' is one of the latter books.
There have been many reference books put out on the market over the past few decades on the work of the early Christian church. Much research has gone into the development and exposition of scholarship of the time of Jesus and the first generations of the church after Christ. There is a fascination with getting things `accurate' and `historically correct', terms that have a variety of meanings that can be ascribed to them contextually, and thus lots of `histories' and other works have been published.
I must confess I buy more than my fair share of these, partly because I get the world's most generous discount at the Christian Theological Seminary Bookstore, and partly because such books go out of print so quickly. Fortunately, the `Dictionary of Early Christian Literature' is likely to be available for some time to come.
Even so, unless you are a scholar, it might not be the kind of book you'd want for home use. It is a good reference, and if your intention is to build a significant library in Christian thought, this book would be a good addition. However, for the novice and casual reader, particularly one who really cares to concentrate on the Bible itself, this book can be found in a library and be useful. Do request that your local library add this volume to their acquisitions.
`The Dictionary offers compact and precise information as well as an updated bibliography in an easy-to-use alphabetical arrangement.
