From the Back Cover
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.

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).Read more ›
