Review: Nelson's Guide to DenominationsUser Review - Christianbook.com
Okay, so this book is probably not what you're looking for if you're wanting to know about specific Christian denominations. I happened to see it was a low price, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I would encourage you to do so as well, but that's just because it has some good *general* info about the concept of denominations. The following is going to be a much better alternative if you're wanting to know a great deal about hallmarks of and differences among US denominations (great resource, great value!): http://www.christianbook.com/handbook-denominations-united-states-13th-edition/craig-atwood/9781426700484/pd/700484?

I first looked at my own faith group heritage and found a number of mistakes which are easily verifiable. The author confuses the various subgroups, combines the census numbers, has the wrong dates of their origin and misrepresnts key beliefs. I'm not sure i will bother reading any more. Read full review
