Pocket Dictionary of Church History

The Pocket Dictionary of Church History is designed to help students identify the people, places, events, movements and ideas that checker the story of the church through the ages. Among the three-hundred-plus definitions you’ll find

  • terms, from ad fontes to via media

  • “isms,” from Arminianism to Unitarianism
  • places and events, from the Azusa Street Mission to the White Horse Inn
  • councils, from Nicaea to Vatican II
