This is one of the many publications in Zondervan's Charts series. This volume is put together by the well-respected H Wayne House.There are chapters on the main cults - JWs, Mormons,Mind Sciences, there are chapters covering the Christadelphians, Church Universal and Triumphant, the Reorganised Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, Unification Church andUnited Pentecostal Church.There are chapters on Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, New Age and Eckankar. There are also chapters on Alamo Christian Ministries, The Family and The Way International along with a chapter on The Course in Miracles.The charts cover the facts and history of each of the groups and movements before going on to itemize the various doctrines.The volume is a large-format paperback that will help and serious student of cults and sects.
In general, this book provides a good and thorough examination of the groups listed, using their own source documents(IMPORTANT). House lays out their beliefs as they compare with those of orthodox Christianity. The format is easy to use and understand. This is a good source for information on some of the smaller counterfeits (Alamo Ministries, the Way) as well as the large groups (LDS, Jehovah's Witnesses, Oneness Pentecostals).I do have to wonder why House considered some of these as deviating from Christian orthodoxy rather than eclectically borrowing material from it (ARE, New Agers). I would have preferred inclusion of other small & large counterfeit movements in their place.
