  • Handbook Of Denominations In The United States


    The Handbook of Denominations in the United States has been the gold standard for reference works about religious bodies in America. It is a helpful resource for clergy, laity, journalists, and researchers. This authoritative guidebook to U.S. religions is grouped in family categories of Abrahamic religions, arranged chronologically: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The information for each group within these families has been provided by the religious organizations themselves and focuses on the denominations’ doctrines, statistics, and histories. The 14th edition is completely updated with current statistics, new denominations, and recent trends. The book has been made more useful and manageable by moving very small groups into broader articles while giving more detail and description to the large and influential denominations.

  • My Church Is Not Dying


    Evangelism for a world that hates evangelism, but needs the church

    * The unfolding vision of a church stepping into the future, instead of dwelling
    in the past

    The old way of “being church”-measured by political influence, money, and congregants
    in the pews-may indeed be vanishing, but it is being replaced by something new and
    beautiful for those with the eyes, ears, heart, and soul to experience it.
    Prolific author Greg Garrett reminds Episcopalians of the many gifts that our tradition
    can offer a doubting and hurting world. He reveals a church that values intellect, beauty,
    diversity, and community, and promotes thoughtful engagement with questions of faith,
    ethics, and community. This church espouses a generous orthodoxy, welcoming left
    and right, mystic and doubter. It values education, social justice, and engagement with
    literature and culture. And in opposition to the radical individualism espoused by most of
    American Protestantism, it offers the unique gift of a tradition shaped by English culture
    that believes the individual is a part of her or his community-not in opposition to it.

    For members of the Episcopal Church, laypeople seeking a deeper understanding of
    faith and the Episcopal/Anglican tradition, and seekers wondering about a way of being
    Christian that isn’t dogmatic, doesn’t offer judgment or divorce them from the beauty they
    already sense in their lives.

  • Deaconess : Walking In The Newness Of Life


    In the increasingly complex life of our society, and in the critical experiences of the Baptist Church, it is necessary for someone to put in book form some concrete guidelines for Christians to follow in the execution of their high calling. Obviously, this is exactly what the author of this book has so brilliantly done.

    There is so little writtn about the deaconess in the Baptist Church. Certainly, libraries and religious bookstores are sparse with information about this very important Christian worker.

    Those who would become more knowledgeable about the deaconess in the Missionary Baptist Church, should have a copy of this book in his or her religious books collection.
