I would like to see this work in Logos format. I have had it in hardback book form for years, but it would be a great reference for someone doing a comparison of the various denominations.

Hi, Bill.  What are the "limits" to the range of denominations covered?  (Protestants only? All Christians? Current only? Etc.)  (Thanks.)

Hi Fred. The book covers EVERYTHING from A to Z. It has the beliefs of B'Hai, Judaism, Islam, Hindu and others and it includes all the different breakdowns of the Baptist, Methodist, etc., groups. The last paper version I had (which was loaned out and never found its way home), had, I think 29 different Baptist "branches". It is just a great reference book for a quick look at the beliefs of the various religious groups.

From my attempts at collecting Baptist creeds/statements of faith I think that's about 0.0000001% of them. (An exaggeration, a joke folks).Big Smile

Here is a link to the Handbook of Denominations in the United States, 12th Edition for more information.

How can you dare to suggest that we study these heretical groups !  Wink  Just yanking your chain a bit since someone posted a thread on "running the gauntlet" on making suggestions. 

I concur.  It looks like a very handy item to have.  I've run into members of some of these but had no idea what they stood for. What's an Episcopalian ?  Big Smile (besides me)?

I didn't know Episcopalians spent so much time studying original languages!!  wow!  Maybe you ARE Biblical!  (holy cow, I hope this is recognized as totally, totally, in fun!)  George, did not know you were, in all seriousness.  I am not, but I must say I recently was at a retreat near an Episcopalian seminary called "Nashota House."  My wife and I went over there every day for morning and evening prayers.  It really had a powerful impact on me.  Blessings.

 

I would like this resource very much. (back On Topic).  Bill, do you happen to know WHO put it together?  Who makes comments on the various denoms?  (or in our case, Bill, the non-denominational denomination . . . )

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

Dan, I'm not sure if Frank S. Mead did all of the work himself or if he had a series of helpers. It has grown since I got my first paper copy of it when I was in Bible College. Amazon is showing a 12th edition for sale and I think my last copy was an 8th edition.

I was just getting ready to post this as a suggestion when I found this thread which I formerly missed.

Having just consulted my hard copy again (for Christadelphians) I concur that it would be a great addition to Logos.

TC, thanks for pointing us out. We are probably the closest to the original Christianity of the New Testament church than any other around. You do believe that the words of the Bible are True and Correct, right?Surprise, Big Smile

I've read the hc and have a copy as well, and refer to it often. I agree that it would be a good for Logos to inquire....
