‘Tis the Season to Reflect

Posted on: December 18, 2015

Religious booksOver the past week we’ve been busy adding dictionaries and books on different religions and beliefs to our Quick Reference section. Ideal for thoughtful contemplation over the festive break…

Here are the dictionaries we’ve added which give explanations of concepts, terms and theories and include biographies of key figures:

Concise Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church

The Oxford Dictionary of Saints

Oxford Dictionary of the Bible

The Oxford Dictionary of Islam

The Oxford Dictionary of Popes

A Dictionary of Hinduism

They are supplemented by the excellent A Very Short Introduction series we’ve highlighted before:

God: A Very Short Introduction by Joun Bowker

The New Testament: A Very Short Introduction by Luke Timothy Johnson

Catholicism: A Very Short Introduction by Gerald O’Collins

Rastafari: A Very Short Introduction by Ennis B Edmonds

Islam: A Very Short Introduction by Malise Ruthven

Judaism: A Very Short Introduction by John Solomon

Tibetan Bhuddism: A Very Short Introduction by Matthew T Kapstein

If you are not religious or interested in researching religion then these two from the series on paganism and spirituality will appeal:

Paganism: A Very Short Introduction by Owen Davies

Spirituality: A Very Short Introduction by Philip Sheldrake
