Throughout time, Christians have thought about their faith and witnessed to the Gospel taking into account the world in which they lived, thereby meeting a number of challenges. Today's world is no exception; the multiple questions it raises make a twofold approach necessary: ​​thinking about the Christian faith in the present context and taking a Christian look at today's realities. It is this double orientation which guided the 49 authors of this volume in the writing of the 76 articles which make this dictionary a compendium of Christian reflection without equivalent, in its breadth and diversity.

The articles, which are all benchmarks for a bold, wise and relevant testimony, are organized around six major areas of reflection:

  • theology and the main Christian doctrines and themes;
  • the Bible and the global questions it poses;
  • ethics and the major moral questions of today, sometimes burning and painful questions, whether individual or collective;
  • culture and society, and therefore the main trends in today's world;
  • faith and religion, in order to situate the Christian faith in the very diverse religious and spiritual world in which modern globalization places us;
  • philosophy and values, in other words the major currents which shape the thinking and behavior of our contemporaries.
