What is an up to date and affordable resource for the study of the Catholic heritage? The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church has been for many years my go to resource when studying the vast history of the Christian tradition. The book is an excellent place to begin one’s investigation into the sources of the Catholic tradition.
Catholic readers should note that the volume was assembled by many members of the Church of England. As a result, some of the entries skew toward Protestant perspectives or are oriented toward the larger narratives of the Protestant Reformation. Nevertheless, for the price and for the accessibility to first rate scholarship on many people, movements and doctrines in the history of the Christian tradition, one would be hard pressed to find a better resource.
To obtain the most affordable and the most up to date version of this work, please use the following link: https://www.amazon.com/Dictionary-Christian-Church-F-Cross/dp/1598562509/. Note well, that the Catholic Heritage, LLC, makes no money if you purchase from this link. We offer this resource solely for the benefit of our listeners.
The Catholic Heritage is devoted to helping Catholic Christians better understand the history, teachings and culture of their Catholic faith so that they can better love and serve Christ, the Church and their neighbors.
