Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Dictionary of Everyday Theology and Culture takes key theological concepts out of the seminary and puts them on the street, allowing every reader to understand the terms and then practice them. This resource contains an alphabetical listing of 170 theological and cultural terms; each entry includes a definition (explaining the term in easy-to-understand language) and an everyday application (helping readers grasp how to live out the concept).

Sound theology isn’t simply the intellectual exercise of reflecting on God’s existence and works. Biblical truths are intended for godly living and Christian service. Therefore, this dictionary goes deeper than other reference texts, helping readers apply truths about God to such issues as abortion, divorce, ecology, bioethics, prayer, worship, evangelism, stewardship, politics, and the media.

This review is for the Dictionary of Everyday Theology and Culture, copyright 2010. This book is available in hardcover and on the kindle. This 457 page book appears to be manufactured using quality paper and components. The pages in my book have a slight yellow tint -I find it neutral, non-distracting. As of the day of this review, a new book can be purchased for only $7.36 with prime shipping. In my opinion, this price is very reasonable.

The editors of this dictionary are Bruce Demarest and Keith J. Matthews. According to pages 453-457, there are 40 contributors. At the end of each topic, the author's name is listed along with additional books "for further reading".

Since I don't own the electronic version, I cannot comment how easy or difficult it is to navigate between topics. If you own the electronic edition of this book, please consider providing a review for the benefit of potential buyers.

According to the introduction, this "is an easy-to-use book about theology and culture for ordinary people living in the everyday world". Having spent time reading its articles, I would wholeheartedly agree. This book is not written for theologians but for everyday Christians who could benefit from this outstanding work. It appears to be written for those who desire to not only increase their knowledge, but more importantly, for the benefit of application. Each of the topics is further broken down into two parts, "Everyday Definition" and "Everyday Application" (page 5).

concise and to the point. Takes much of the esoterric verbage, the churchy language out. Leaves me something I can apply to my daily life.
