Book Review: IVP Pocket Reference Series

The IVP Pocket Reference Series is a great way to build an excellent reference library without having to spend a lot of money. The entire series of 13 books costs $130 ($117 through IVP) and individual pocket dictionaries retail for just $10 ($9 through IVP – less than on Amazon.com and Christianbook.com).

The series includes:

  • Pocket Dictionary of  Theological Terms
  • Pocket Dictionary of Theology
  • Pocket Dictionary for the Study of Biblical Hebrew
  • Pocket Dictionary for the Study of New Testament Greek
  • Pocket Dictionary of Biblical Studies
  • Pocket Dictionary of Ethics
  • Pocket History of the Church
  • Pocket Dictionary of Church History
  • Pocket Guide to World Religions
  • Pocket Dictionary of Liturgy Worship
  • Pocket Dictionary of the Reformed Tradition
  • Pocket Dictionary of Apologetics & Philosophy of Religion
  • Pocket Handbook of Christian Apologetics

Since FaithandSelfDefense is primarily an apologetics ministry, I’ll review the two IVP books about apologetics.
