Christian Theology at Georgetown College: Handbooks and Companions

This guide will assist research and reading for the Georgetown College theology curriculum.

About Handbooks and Companions

Handbooks and companions are anthologies of articles that summarize the history and current state of research in academic fields and sub-disciplines. The articles are written by top scholars to provide "quick and dirty" introductions to learners, as well as comprehensive bibliographies to aid in further research. Unlike encyclopedias and dictionaries, these works offer longer articles (often 20-25 pages) and are arranged thematically. 

Recommended Handbooks & Companions

This is not an exhaustive list of religion-related Reference and circulating materials, but some of the best LRC holdings for theological and pastoral research projects.
