The Columbia Gazetteer of the World is a comprehensive encyclopedia of geographical places and features. CGW contains 170,000 articles about 1) the political world?(named geographic places), 2) The physical world (major features) and 3) special places?(national parks, historic places, etc.).
This volume brings into conversation theological thinkers from around the globe, especially those from what the editors term “the Global South” (i.e., Latin America, Africa and Asia.) Covers both standard topics of Christian theology (e.g., ecclesiology, sacraments, salvation, etc.) as well as topics more specific to local contexts.
