Definition Of All Theological Terms And Every Article In The System Of Divinity
(circa 1820)
According to some who are familiar with this work it is told that when men and women of evangelical persuasion migrated from the eastern United States to regions to the west they took along three books. In order of importance, there was their precious and most valuable piece of literature, the King James Bible,  followed by Matthew Henry's Commentary and finally Buck's Theological Dictionary. The first two books have survived to this day and remain popular throughout the English speaking world. Buck's Theological Dictionary for whatever reason did not retain the same interest and as a result it was soon forgotten by the publishing industry. It is our hope to revive an interest in this work with the objective that it will serve to encourage fresh research on many of the fascinating topics and historical events recorded within its pages.
