It has been thoughtfully and meticulously curated by Walter Elwell since The editors have struck an important editorial balance by both retaining the essential substance of the previous edition, as well as revising mostly on narrow, warranted grounds.

To do that effectively requires some editorial revision, so let me remark on a couple of the more significant, and also commendable, changes to the third edition. Dictionaries are by nature susceptible to sprawl. The index of relevant topics rarely contracts over time, but instead expands. With this new edition, the scope is tailored to subjects of essential interest to systematic theology. A difficult editorial decision to make, perhaps, but an important one.

Second, and perhaps most important, the editors have taken special care to diversify the list of contributors. The dictionary, like much evangelical discourse, has historically been disproportionately represented by white male voices. The dictionary is conciliar, drawing scholars broadly from across the tradition, and the editors are to be commended for this effort, especially since women and ethnic minorities remain notably under-represented within evangelical scholarship.

The editors show knowledgeable flexibility toward what counts as systematic theology. There are, of course, many standard entries one would rightly expect in a theological dictionary—the trinity, baptism, allegory, Thomas Aquinas, and so forth—but there are also several welcome additions, like political theology, Hinduism, and technology. The list of contributors and topics is sensible and wide-ranging.

For several obvious reasons, this is an admittedly thorny question for the church today. Even the serviceability of the term itself is everywhere in question. Evangelical theology is catholic, diverse, eclectic, historically enriched, biblically committed, and, of course, theocentric.

It is subtly infused with an evangelical spirit of sorts. Jumping from entry to entry, one begins to detect something of a theme: God still speaks. This God that Christians say speaks has a message the church is empowered to convey.

Entries are wisely curated, accessible to wider reading audiences even undergraduates , and seem always to strike just the right balance between rigor and concision. His copy sits beside my new one on the bookshelf. The volume has been an admired resource for nearly forty years, and this new edition will only broaden its appeal.
