This unique handbook produced by the John Knox Center in Geneva, Switzerland, provides the first comprehensive survey ever of the churches and theological schools of the Reformed family worldwide.

Gathering together all streams of the Reformed tradition -- Reformed, Presbyterian, Congregational, Evangelical, and United -- this volume includes a complete survey of the churches and institutions that today claim for themselves the heritage of the Reformation and gives basic information on each of them. Included are listings of the various international bodies in which Reformed churches hold membership and of the unions and official dialogues in which Reformed churches participate. Specific information can be found on 746 churches and 529 theological schools, while helpful charts and geographical maps display important general statistical data.

Presenting a superb overview of the Reformed family -- its multiplicity, richness, weaknesses, and potentials -- this volume will also serve as a much-needed instrument for facilitating communication between Reformed churches.
