Biblical, evangelical, and orthodox, The Concise Guide to Today's Religions and Spirituality supplies readers with a comprehensive, A-to-Z information source. Supported by the trustworthy research of Watchman Fellowship and its president, James Walker, its thousands of entries give the basics needed to evaluate spiritual belief systems, movements, and phenomena--Christian, quasi-Christian, and non-Christian--and the people connected with them.
Definitions, descriptions, and cross references pack the maximum useful information into concise form, as in these examples:
Adler, Margo: A witch affiliated with the Covenant of the Goddess, the second-largest coven in the United States. Adler wrote the highly influential book Drawing Down the Moon. See GODDESS, WICCA.
Bioenergy: NEW AGE practice of healing, in which life-energy is balanced by opening blocked meridians. See HOLISTIC HEALING.
A great resource for individuals-- parents, church leaders, counselors, friends who want to give sound advice-- as well as for study groups and church libraries.
