Students will find this resource comprehensive as well as compelling, with coverage on more than 2,300 North American religious groups in the U.S. and Canada -- from Adventists to Zen Buddhists. Information on these groups is presented in two distinct sections. These sections contain essays and directory listings that describe the historical development of religious families and give factual information about each group within those families, including, when available, rubrics for membership figures, educational facilities and periodicals.
"The impressive amount of up-to-date data coupled with the user-friendly new features make Melton's eighth edition a must-have resource for virtually every academic and public library in North America."
