    • Abstract:
      Summary: This new volume, replacing The Westminster Dictionary of Spirituality by Gordon S. Wakefield (1983), stands as the definitive reference work on all aspects of Christian spirituality. Several years in the making and comprised of more than 400 completely new entries, the Dictionary incorporates the collective expertise of today's foremost scholars in the field of Christian spirituality. Systematically organized and alphabetically arranged for maximum ease of use, the book includes comprehensive bibliographies; a section of short essays on the content, methods, and current debates in the field; and reading lists to encourage additional reading and research. Philip F. Sheldrake is Professor in the Department of Theology and Religion, University of Durham.
