The Historical Dictionary of the Reformed Churches covers a broad span of activities, from theology and government to education and social activism. The dictionary includes a detailed chronology followed by specific entries on the geographical regions where the Reformed faith has been rooted. Other entries are devoted to outstanding figures, men and women from the Reformation to the present day, who have nurtured and shaped the Reformed tradition, as well as theological terms as understood in the Reformed traditions. It required a team of three authors and an international panel of consultants to create this balanced and thorough reference. A comprehensive bibliography and useful appendixes complete the work and make it truly essential to scholars of the Reformed churches.
