The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church is an indispensable guide to all aspects of the Christian Church. It contains 6,000 A-Z entries offering unrivalled coverage from theology and the Bible to the church calendar and its organization.

This revision of the Third Edition (1997) features new coverage of recent developments, including the Church of England's new prayer book and ecumenical advances and mergers. Containing new articles on subjects such as Desmond Tutu and updated articles reflecting new understanding on topics like the Holy Sepulchre, the ODCC is a uniquely authoritative and wide-ranging reference book.

Established since its first appearance in 1957 as an essential resource for ordinands, clergy, and members of religious orders; ODCC is an invaluable tool for academics, teachers, and students of church history and theology, as well as for the general reader.
