About the Author

The late F. L. Cross was the Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity in the University of Oxford and Canon of Christ Church from 1944 to 1968. He did crucial academic work on the African biblical canons and early liturgy.

Dr. E. A. Livingstone assumed the editorship of the ODCC upon the death of F. L. Cross. A specialist in patristic studies, she was made a Member of the British Empire in recognition of her work in that field.

Format: Paperback
Whether you want to learn about church history, a particular doctrine, or certain individual or movement within Christendom, this book is sure to cover it. Its 1568 pages, the print is small to average, and in two column format. The book somewhat resembles a phonebook for a major city like Chicago or New York.

Of note:

-This is the same as the much pricier hardback version that usually gets all the attention. This one I think goes unnoticed because of its paperback format, which doesn't fare well with the book's large size. That said, the softcover does allow the book to lay flat on a table if you're in the middle two thirds of the book.

-The articles remain largely ecumenical and try to incorporate an eclectic view of the subjects it speaks about, but if there is a bias it is slightly Evangelical (which for me isn't a bad thing, just mentioning it for informational purposes).

-Most importantly, the book can be secured for much cheaper at Christian Book Distributors. As of this writing, the price at CBD is only $9.99. It fluctuates a little (I got mine for $15) but usually maintains a much lower pricepoint than can be found anywhere else.

All in all, an essential book for any scholarly-minded individual and a worthy edition for any Christian's library.
