- a quick overview of some of its distinctive characteristics
Whether you're looking for a new church or enriching your fellowship with believers from other traditions, you'll be much better prepared with this revised and expanded edition of The Complete Guide to Christian Denominations.
Radio personality, author, president of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministry, and Th.D, Ron Rhodes gives us a useful, interesting tool for working within the Christian sphere in The Complete Guide to Christian Denominations. Quoting from denominational references, Rhodes presents their beliefs as they state them. Researching this book was a large project involving help from each of the denominations involved. The author shares all this research with the reader via the bibliography, which contains websites and books from each denomination. An index of denominations, persons, and charts adds to this books usefulness. Both laymen and church professionals will find this book a profitable addition to their libraries. Inquisitive readers will read with enjoyment, as they flip pages back and forth comparing denominations. Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
Miguel1 Stars Out Of 5I would NOT recommend this book!!March 20, 2012MiguelThis book was a waste of my money and time. I was looking for a thorough exposition of the relevant, important, and historic differences between denominations; Dr. Rhodes does a poor job of giving this to the reader. I know this because of the denominations I am very closely associated with (or have been associate with), he does a poor job of getting to the important and essential real differences of which I am very familiar. This book was so poorly done that I threw it away in great frustration and disappointment (especially compared to the great work he has done on the cults). DON"T BUY IT!!
