Praise for the Encyclopedia:

ALA/RUSA Outstanding Reference Source, 2005
Choice Outstanding Academic Title, 2004

"A substantial and worthy complement covering one of Christianity's major branches... This set belongs in most college and university libraries, many larger public libraries, and all seminary and other substantial theological libraries."
American Reference Books Annual

"Every theological library should own this Encyclopedia, and everyone interested in Protestant theology should consult it... The work is appropriate for students and scholars alike."
Theological Studies

"This is a rich resource of very fine scholarship on Protestantism and most things related to it... Every university, seminary, divinity school, and theological library should have a copy of this fine work."
Journal of Church and State

"Comprehensive…. Clear and objective…. Highly recommended. Academic and theological libraries."

"This reference work has little competition in terms of authority and range…. Excellent cross references, historic and contemporary statistical appendixes, and an analytical index make this an efficient reference tool…. An excellent resource to engage in exploration of humanities policy issues, and concerns beyond the specifically religious while also providing deep analyses of theological matters."
Library Journal (starred review)

"A comprehensive four-volume reference set…. Coverage is rich…. The Encyclopedia of Protestantism has all the features that you would expect from a set of this caliber: useful bibliographies, a thematic index of related articles, a list of contributors and a good general index…. The printing is clear and layout appealing. The set is attractively bound…. An impressive work of distinct quality. It will find its place among other respected encyclopedias…. Reference librarians in academic and larger public libraries will see it as a requisite part of a serious religion collection."
Against the Grain

"A very handsome set, well-conceived and substantial looking…. It should have a place in any academic or large public library collection."

"This comprehensive and unique reference describes important individuals, events, institutions, and teachings..."
Reference & Research Book News

"We have long needed such a resource, and now we have it, and in splendid, accessible, and comprehensive form. This will become an indispensable tool for us all."
Peter J. Gomes, Harvard University
