George Thomas Kurian, James D., Iii Smith pdf


With the help of more than 175 contributors, Kurian and Smith have produced a concise yet substantive guide to Christian literature, both old and new. The set has two major sections. The first makes up roughly one-fourth of the entire work. It is here that the whole of Christian literature is categorized into approximately 40 genres, including Apologetics, Devotional literature, Missions literature, Poetry, and Systematics. The average entry is 3–4 pages long, including a small dose of background and history along with a survey of noteworthy authors and works belonging to the genre. Most articles also include a meaty bibliography. The heart and soul of the encyclopedia is the biographical section, which begins in the middle of volume 1. Staying true to the genre coverage that precedes it, the biography portion includes authors of many different shades: poets, hymn writers, dramatists, novelists, theologians, and even preachers whose “literature” is primarily in sermon form. Household names, such as C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien, are of course present. But then so are many lesser-knowns, like Blessed Henry Suso, a fourteenth-century German mystic. Suso is also an example of the global nature of the work. In a span of only a dozen pages, readers may find representatives from America, China, England, Germany, Greece, and the Netherlands. Also included are a number of Christians not known primarily for their writings—people like Billy Graham, John Paul II, and Martin Luther King Jr. Biblical authors are not overlooked, with articles for the Apostle Paul and several Gospel writers. Overall, the coverage includes a nice blend of contemporary (e.g., Max Lucado, Rick Warren) and historical (Martin Luther, Tolstoy) icons. Most authors receive at least a page’s worth of attention. Following the entries are a time line, an alphabetical list of “the seventy-five greatest Christian writers,” and an index. A well-suited work for virtually any academic and large public library. --Wade Osburn This encyclopedia should be a valuable reference for many audiences and a welcome addition to most academic reference collections. The two-volume set is organized into two parts: 'Genres and Types' and 'Biographies.' Forty essays in the first part explore the many genres included under the Christian literature umbrella. Individual essayists concisely describe and define areas ranging from apocalyptic literature to children's literature to systematics. Articles will be accessible to most readers. The 400-plus biographies cover individuals from ancient to modern times, examining authors of theological and mystical works as well as novelists and nonfiction writers....Overall, this compact, easy-to-use work provides good information. Recommended. (CHOICE )

(Booklist 20101001)

Because Christian literature is so vast, and there are no other reference sources that specifically address Christian literature in this manner, Encyclopedia of Christian Literature is a worthy addition to the world of reference....This title is recommended for academic libraries, especially those who support religious studies curricula.
(Reference and User Services Quarterly )

This two-volume encyclopedia provides a representative look at a wide variety of core Christian writings and authors from all denominations over the course of 2000 years….Recommended for all libraries on account of its broad scope and appeal. (Library Journal )

This is a useful and well-produced publication. The division into two volumes makes it much easier to manage than a single volume would have been, and much more likely to remain serviceable on library shelves. This is a helpful general reference work as well as serving specialist theological institutions. (Reference Reviews )

Kurian and Smith's Encyclopedia takes its rightful place amongst these as a composite work, blending a dictionary of genres and types of literature (ranging from 'Apocalyptic Literature' to 'Women's Literature') with an anthology of entries on significant authors. (American Reference Books Annual 20100801)

The encyclopedia has two volumes. The first beings with the genres and types of Christian writing, and here one finds useful entries ranging from apocalyptic literature to women's literature. Thereafter, both volumes are devoted to a wide range of authors, entries on whom are arranged alphabetically.
