A review by Brandon Lamar Jackson. What is the difference between Post-American Christianity and a Post-Christian America? Is global Christianity comparable with Christendom? Furthermore, is the African church a sign of indigenous peoples discovery of Christ, or rather the Christian discovery of indigenous peoples? Who does Christianity belong to?
I have long considered the New Bible Dictionary (NBD) (1st ed., 1962; 2d ed., 1982) to be the best one-volume Bible dictionary available. It was a scholarly treasure-trove of information about almost every conceivable subject relating to the Bible. I have constantly used it for quick reference, as well as to compare information from longer entries in multi-volume Bible encyclopedias. Its list of contributors was a veritable "Who’s Who" in evangelicalism of the British Commonwealth.
