Crucial to understanding that conversation is a familiarity with the language and theologians over the last twenty centuries. This dictionary of over 300 entries is a helpful tool to those just learning theology, and can be a valuable, concise resource for those who have studied theology for many years.

Text Sample

Zwingli, Ulrich (1484-1531). The leader of the Swiss Reformation, Zwingli is often numbered with Luther and Calvin as one of the most influential Protestant Reformers. A strict adherent to the biblical text, Zwingli rejected Luther's position of consubstantiation in regard to the presence of Christ in the Eucharist, arguing instead for a memorialist view. Zwingli inspired but later broke with the developing Anabaptist movement.
