  • Encyclopedia Of The Stone Campbell Movement

    $101.50

    With roots in British and American endeavors to restore apostolic Christianity, the Stone-Campbell Movement drew its inspiration from the independent efforts of nineteenth-century religious reformers Barton W. Stone and the father-son team of Thomas and Alexander Campbell. The union of these two movements in the 1830s and the growth of the new body thrust it into a place of significance in early nineteenth-century America, and it quickly spread to other parts of the English-speaking world.

    From its beginnings the Movement has developed into one of the most vital and diverse Christian traditions in the world. Today it encompasses three major American communions — Churches of Christ, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and Christian Churches/Churches of Christ — as well as united churches in several other countries.

    Over ten years in the making, The Encyclopedia of the Stone-Campbell Movement offers for the first time a sweeping historical and theological treatment of this complex, vibrant global communion. Written by more than 300 contributors, this major reference work contains over 700 original articles covering all of the significant individuals, events, places, and theological tenets that have shaped the Movement. Much more than simply a historical dictionary, this volume also constitutes an interpretive work reflecting historical consensus among Stone-Campbell scholars, even as it attempts to present a fair, representative picture of the rich heritage that is the Stone-Campbell Movement.

    Scores of photographs and illustrations (many quite rare) enrich and enliven the text, and an extensive, carefully prepared index facilitates ready access to important information throughout the volume. The Encyclopedia of the Stone-Campbell Movement — a standard reference work for religious, academic, public, and personal libraries everywhere. Features of this encyclopedia:
    Presents over 700 articles on the people, events, churches, and beliefs that comprise the Stone-Campbell tradition
    Provides cutting-edge commentary on current topics of discussion as well as basic historical knowledge
    Written by more than 300 scholars from across the Stone-Campbell Movement
    Enlivened with photographs and illustrations (some quite rare) from around the world Includes an extensive index for rapid reference

  • Encyclopedia Of Christian Literature

    $218.00

    The written word is one of the defining elements of Christian experience. As vigorous in the first century as it is in the 21st, Christian literature has had a significant function in history, and teachers and students need to be reminded of this powerful literary legacy.

    Covering 2000 years, The Encyclopedia of Christian Literature is the first encyclopedia devoted to Christian writers and books. In addition to an overview of the Christian literature, this two-volume set also includes nearly 40 essays on the principal genres of Christian literature. This work also contains more than 400 bio-bibliographical essays describing the principal writers and their works. These essays examine the evolution of Christian thought as reflected in the literature of every age.

    The companion also features bibliographies, an index, and illustrations, including photographs of rare Bibles and Books of Hours, as well as contemporary Christian authors and books. Other special features include a chronology of Christian Literature and rankings of both the 100 Greatest Christian Writers and the 100 Greatest Christian Books.

  • Augustine Through The Ages

    $107.50

    Providing the first full encyclopedic handling of the thought and influence of St. Augustine of Hippo, editor Fitzgerald (Augustinian Patristic Inst., Rome; editor of Augustinian Studies for Villanova Univ.) and four associate editors supply a much-needed reference for this major patristic figure in the development of Western religious thought. Over 140 scholars have supplied more than 400 articles ranging generally from 200 to 2000 words on double-column pages. Each article is signed, and most contain bibliographies citing both older and more recent scholarship. Topics range from the general (Anthropology, Archaeology, Love, Time) to the specific (personal names, places, and Latin titles). A foreword by Jaroslav Pelikan was not seen by this reviewer; nor were the subject and name indexes. Because Augustine’s own life appears not under his name but under Life, Cultures and Controversies of Augustine, the index quality will be especially important for mining content. The inclusion of maps and illustrations would have been a plus. Recommended for academic and seminary libraries and public library collections where there is demand.
