While reading one thing, you go on to the next, and then to the next! It is really enlightening and educational. I keep it with me just about all the time.

Well I bought and finally perused this book in my hands and find it wanting or lacking. Perhaps a unique and beautiful gift for a child through teen though.

This covers post-NewTestament: from the Pentecost to the reign of JPII. Most entries are one paragraph long or shorter, occasionally up to two paragraphs long. Most entries are quite short and curt, certainly not encyclopedia-like. The Reformation entry was 2 pages long, certainly not long enough for something that touts itself as an encyclopedia; was expecting 8-10 pages. This is a very concise (meaning short and to the point) and very attenuated reference book. Any and all internet sources to the same topic(s) are covered more in depth online. For instance Wikipedia is well defined on Catholic materials with Catholic contributors and editors. The online NewAdvent Catholic Encyclopedia is wonderful also. This book pales in comparison to either Wikipedia or NewAdvent. The online NewAdvent Catholic Encyclopedia, although it has a 1910ish print date it is very authoritative as a reference within the Catholic Church. The OSV Encyclopedia of Catholic History is not authoritative, nothing, pfft!

My recommendation is if you dont have the internet, then this could be a necessary although not too satisfying reference for you. If you have the internet, this book is a waste of time.

A great alternative book to this is "The Catholic Bible Dictionary" by Scott Hahn by Scott Hahn. A great and well used resource. Money well spent. Entries are short to long, covers all or most of the names, figures, terms presented in the Bible, Old Testament to New Testament.
