Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels edited by J. Hastings
James Hastings (1852-1922) was a United Free Church minister and journal editor, who had a lively Christian faith, which was coupled with a love of learning. He was a notable preacher, simple and direct, and an eager supporter of social welfare. But over and above all these concerns, his real achievement lies in his commitment to promoting knowledge of the Christian faith, but especially of the Bible. He is particularly remembered for his works of reference. These include this two-volume Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels (1906-7), his Dictionary of the Bible (1898-1902), and his Dictionary of the Apostolic Church (1915-18); but these pale into insignificance when compared to his thirteen-volume work, the Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics (1908-21). These works bore witness to Hastings's conviction that modern biblical criticism, far from undermining Christian belief, would serve to reinforce the fundamental tenets of his faith. Volume 1 is Aaron to Knowledge, and Volume 2 is Labour to Zion and with appendix and indexes. Printed in two columns per page.
