Written by two philosophers and a theologian, this book provides easy access to key terms in philosophy and how they are understood and used in theology. The focused entries discuss what the terms have meant in classical and contemporary philosophy and then shift to what these philosophical understandings have meant in the history of Christian theology to the present day. The result is a unique volume that clearly shows the interplay of these disciplines and how theology has been influenced by the language and vocabulary of philosophy.

""To theological students I, as a philosopher, have sometimes said that what I hope for is not that they become philosophers but that they become sure-footed in philosophy. These 101 definitions will be a great aid to becoming surefooted in philosophy. But apart from such utility for theology students, I myself found it fun to read around in them. They are crisp, lucid, accurate, and superbly informed. An admirable achievement!"
