Handbook of Denominations in the United StatesBook - 1985
"The Handbook of Denominations has been recognized as an accurate, objective, and comprehensive source of information on denominational groupings in the United States for over half a century. This new edition, offered at the dawn of a new millennium, has been thoroughly revised. However, it maintains the accessibility and readability that have been hallmarks of previous editions." "The eleventh edition presents updated entries on the major Christian denominations in the United States - their historical background, their doctrines or main teachings, and their polity or structure of governance. Included are statistics on the number of churches and church members and information about church-related schools and institutions. The Handbook also treats the major branches of Judaism and Islam that are found in the U.S."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
