This volume, a nuanced introduction to the core concepts in Catholic theology, features 337 entries. Beinert, professor of dogmatics at the University of Regensburg, Germany, was editor of the original version. Fiorenza is the Charles Chauncey Stillman professor of Roman Catholic theology at the Harvard Divinity School. The project features six main divisions: "Contemporary Issues," "Biblical Background," "History of Theology," "Church Teaching," "Ecumenical Perspectives," and "Systematic Reflections." Citations are easy to follow, including biblical passages and various church documents. With helpful tables and indices, this volume represents a richer, deeper treatment of many issues than is found in other dictionaries of theology.
