The Encyclopedia of Cults, Sects and New Religions


 Product Description

Author: Lewis, James R.

Form: Hardcover

Pages: 775

Surpassing the scope and the thoroughness of the first edition, this new edition ofᅠThe Encyclopedia of Cults, Sects, and New Religionsᅠis the most wide-ranging and accessible resource on the historically significant and more obscure, sinister, and bizarre religious groups. Including many entries by scholarly specialists, this volume explains more than 1,000 diverse groups and movements, from such well-known sects as the Branch Davidians, Aum Shinrikyo, and Heaven's Gate, to obscure groups like Ordo Templi Satanas, Witches International, and the Nudist Christian Church of the Blessed Virgin Jesus. In addition to an exhaustive index and handy cross-references, the second edition includes over a hundred new topical entries on subjects relevant to understanding sectarian movements, from snake-handling and satanic ritual abuse to brainwashing and exorcism.
