Cassell Dictionary of Christianity by J. C. Cooper, Ebenezer Cobham Brewer


pdf epub fb2 djvu



Early Christianity, simple in nature, grew rapidly more complex in the course of its contacts with other cultures and traditions, and this process continues today with, for example, the marriage between imported Catholicism and Amerindian tribal cultures and the fusion of Catholic and Protestant persuasions with African and Caribbean beliefs.Building on the Christian references from Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, the Cassell Dictionary of Christianity represents a substantial expansion of content, taking into consideration the notable development of ecumenical movements in recent years and the growth in the number of branch churches now registered with the World Council of Churches.With some 3,400 entries, this volume provides a much-needed reference for students and general readers alike and one which genuinely reflects the immense diversity of Christianity today.
