Twentieth Century Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge is comprised of hundreds of short but scholarly articles or definitions covering biblical studies and theology, national churches and international movements, philosophical trends, non-Christian religions and influential people in culture and Christendom during the twentieth century. These articles are written by an international cast of contributors that includes F. F. Bruce, Carl Henry, George Marsden, and Ronald Nash.

Its main value appears to be its biographical entries. Listed alphabetically, each one gives a short description a person's historical significance or main theological beliefs. The resource also provides a substantial amount of literary works that were written by or about the historical figure. In Twentieth Century Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge you will find valuable and insightful information on everyone from Lyman Abbott to C. S. Lewis to Mohandas Gandhi to Samuel Zwemer.
