    I was looking for a resource on the different denominations as there is so much bias and miss-info out there. I showed this book to several people from the different christian faiths mentioned in the book and the info is accurate. I would recommend this book to any who has heard anything negative about the different denominations.

    I got this book to provide me a quick reference to the differing Christian groups I deal with when it comes to conversion to the Roman Catholic Church. It gives me enough information regarding the theological pedigree of a particular group to indicate the correct path I must take didactically, catechetically and sacramentally with those wishing to enter the Roman Catholic Church.
