Preface The writer of the following pages has long been convinced, from an experience of many years in the Ministry, that a great desideratum among Church people is a Church Dictionary, especially one not so expensive as the more costly works, and at the same time something more complete and satisfactory than a mere glossary of terms. What seems to be needed is an inexpensive, handy volume, short enough for busy people, plain enough for common people, cheap enough for poor people, yet complete enough to give the information needed. The present work was undertaken with this object in view. It was thought worth while ;for if words are things, then greater familiarity with the phraseology of the Church will lead to greater knowledge of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God. What is here set forth is really a Handy Book of Ready Reference arranged in alphabetical order; and while some of the articles may seem to be too brief, yet the system of cross references adopted, it is believed, will throw considerable light on subjects where it is employed and thus enables the book to be kept within the limits already specified. The title, The American Church Dictionary, indicates the purpose as well as those for whom it is written.

Interesting reading but slow and incomplete
This book is interesting reading, but word searches are far too slow to be useful - st least on my lower end Amdroid phone. It is far too incomplete to be considered a dictionary or encyclopedia. Just sit down and read it like a normal book, and not a reference, and you may learn quite a bit.
