    Here is a book that should be found in the library of every evangelical theologian, theology student, and pastor today. Without question, this is one of the most thorough and complete one-volume dictionaries of theology presently available--all of this from an evangelical perspective!! The international cast of contributors (predominantly from North America, Australia, and the UK), under the editorial supervision of Dr. Elwell of Wheaton College, have assembled a remarkable wealth of information. The theologically-inquisitive will find within this volume a fairly substantial summary of almost any theological issue that one might wish to investigate (and several that one might never even think to investigate). Multitudinous articles, appearing in alphabetical order, provide summaries of events, movements, issues and concepts, personalities, terminology, etc. that have in some way contributed to the shape of Christian theology. Even the "insignificant" things are included. In addition, the brief bibliographies that appear at the end of each article provide the reader with some idea of where to turn for further inquiry. One of the greatest strengths of this volume is that, while decidedly evangelical in perspective, its content is not narrowly dogmatic in orientation. Its contributors reflect a diversity of theological persuasions and convictions. However, in this day in which "globalization" has become a very real and important influence on the scope of evangelical theology, one criticism of this text is that it is largely Western in its orientation. There are few contributors from non-Western nations. While this is not a surprising feature in a book published in 1984, a time when the theological voices of evangelicals in Africa, Asia, and Latin America had yet to be heard as valid and equal, a revision of this text would certainly be strengthened if it were to be more balanced in its cultural orientation. Perhaps this dictionary's greatest attribute is the roster of renowned contemporary scholars who are numbered among its contributors. There are few places where men such as Donald Bloesch, Colin Brown, Geoffrey Bromiley, F.F. Bruce, D. A. Carson, Millard Erickson, Carl F.H. Henry, George Ladd, Mark Noll, J.I. Packer, Charles Ryrie, and Peter Toon gather together to provide theological instruction. Between the hard-back covers of this dictionary is found one such place. The Evangelical Dictionary of Theology--A Uniuqie Experience, A Monumental Work!
