Vocabulary of Dogmatic Theology

The English-Vietnamese Vocabulary of Dogmatic Theology was translated by The Vietnamese Priests and Seminarians in Taiwan and Published by The Quang-chi Press, Taipei, on January 1st 1996. The purpose of this publication is to establish a further list of concepts, terms and phrases for SYSTEMATIC-DOGMATIC THEOLOGY from English to Vietnamese. This purpose imposes limitations. We confess, however, that the borderlines cannot be drawn as neatly as one would desire. May this work be a useful building stone for a genuinely Vietnamese Christianity to come! The reader is cordially invited to offer his corrections and suggestions.
