Added half title on cover: A dictionary of Christian faith offering definitions and insight to preachers, teachers, and other church leaders.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
This book "is more than just an accessible dictionary of Christian terms; it is a primer on the Christian faith and a touchstone for further exploration. Dealing primarily with matters of content, William Sydnor uses a pastoral approach to his definitions and explanations, creating what is often a mini-sermon on the meaning and significance of a single word or term."

"'More Than Words' was originally prepared by the Department of Christian Education of the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church. The Canadian edition was prepared by the Department of Religious Education as a resource for parish education, and for use with Junior High". -- verso of t.-p.
"Every field of study and pleasure has its own technical language..... When we reach junior high age, we begin to use the language of the Anglican Church. We could not think very much about religion if we did not understand the words in which important ideas are expressed. This book is written to help you understand words you will hear and words you will need to use. .... In addition to many quotations from the Bible, special passages from the Book of Common Prayer are mentioned. It will help you to look them up. Hymns are suggested which show how the words are used." -- Preface.
"A list of all the articles and words in 'More Than Words', together with additional Bible references, is found on pages 199-203". -- p. .
