Of the making of many denominations there is no end, or so it seems in North America.
Baptists, Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians and Schwenkfelders—how do you keep track of them all? What are their differences? Are there similarities? Where do they each belong on the Christian family tree?
Editors Drew Blankman and Todd Augustine have designed the Pocket Dictionary of North American Denominations as a quick reference guide to orthodox and not-so-orthodox church groups in the United States and Canada.
Among the denominations and groups examined are
- Bible Churches
- African American Denominations
- Confessional Churches
- Mainline Denominations
- Churches in the Evangelical Tradition
- Pentecostal Churches
- Groups on the Christian Fringe
Based on the award-winning Dictionary of Christianity in America, this pocket dictionary is an affordable and easily accessible "help key" for understanding the Christian traditions of your North American neighbors.
