This comprehensive reference to Protestantism covers its history, concepts, people, events, and major organizations worldwide. A special effort has been made to also include those parts of the world in which Protestantism did not take hold until the 19th century, such as Asia, Africa, and Oceania.The entries include: Amish; Biblical criticism; Black theology; The Fundamentals; Hermeneutics; International Pentecostal Holiness Church; Jehovah's Witnesses; Laying on of hands; Neo-Orthodoxy; Nineth-five Theses; Ordination of women; Oriental Mission Society; William Penn; Televangelism; and, Ulrich Zwingli.
