For theological conversation to occur, we need the kind of resources that lay out the basic issues, perspectives and players—and what better resource to have close at hand than a comprehensive, up-to-date dictionary that is accessible to both clergy and educated laypeople, a dictionary with breadth of perspective. Such a request is a tall order, but the editors of The Cambridge Dictionary of Christian Theology have attempted to meet the need. As with any such work, the results are mixed, but the fact that the attempt has been made needs to be celebrated.
