This book is an ideal work for basic information about better-known religions such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Latter Day Saints (Mormons), as well as newer sects such as Falung Gong and the Raelian Church, together with developments in Paganism, for example, Wicca.
Scotland is also helpful in providing information on more recent changes in beliefs in some of these sects such as the Worldwide Church of God. This is a good handy guide – entries on each religion can be read easily in five minutes. Pastors and other key leaders may want fuller workers on the main sects and other religions but this one is a great little book. Excellent value.
