It has been said that in each generation some senior scholar should be pressganged into writing a straightforward account of the Christian faith. SCM Press has gone one better. They have prevailed on a host of leading scholars to write concise articles on the theological (and cognate) themes on which they are expert. Many of these are remarkably successful: historically informative, conceptually clarifying - without being dull.' Maurice Wiles, Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Oxford 'Recommended as the best one-volume dictionary of theology avaialble today.' Choice

About the author (1983)

Alan Richardson was born in Northumberland, England, in 1951, and has been writing on the topic of magic for many years. He does not belong to any occult group or society, does not take pupils, and does not give lectures on any kind of initiation. He insists on holding down a full-time job in the real world like any other mortal. That, after all, is part and parcel of the real magical path. He is married with four children and lives very happily in a small village in the southwest of England.

Erhard S Gerstenberger is Professor of Old Testament Literature and Theology Emeritus at the University of Marburg, Germany.
