The Pocket Dictionary of Christian Spirituality is an A to Z introduction and resource for curious newcomers and novice students of spirituality. From our first call to Abba until we arrive at Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem, Don Thorsen charts the Christian spiritual pilgrimage through its many traditions, schools of thought, and tested practices.

Among the over 300 definitions you'll find

  • terms and ideas
  • traditions and movements
  • practices and rituals
  • texts and theology

A reliable guide and launching pad for learning, the Pocket Dictionary of Christian Spirituality is a basic resource for the pilgrimage travel bag.

Designed for students and pastors alike, the short and accessible volumes in the IVP Pocket Reference Series will help you tackle the study of biblical languages, church history, apologetics, world religions, Christian spirituality, ethics, theology, and more.

"This latest addition to IVP's Pocket Reference series contains over 300 alphabetically ordered terms, customs, doctrines, sacraments, prayers, and people. Authored by an accomplished theology professor and intended for beginners, entries are generally short paragraphs, cogently written and quick to the point. . . . This book would be very handy for the user uninformed on the basic tenets of Christianity or looking for quick information on Pentecost, gnosticism, liturgy, or sin, to cite a few examples."
