Encyclopedic Dictionary of Cults, Sects and World Religions

LCMS pastor Dr. Alvin Schmidt has co-edited a new updated edition of Encyclopedic Dictionary of Cults, Sects and World Religions. Dr. Schmidt (Ph.D., Univ. of Nebraska) retired in 1999 as professor of sociology at Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois and has authored several books. Entries in this update include well-known cults and religions such as Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormonism, Islam and Baha'i, as well as Santeria, Rastafarians, Haitian Voodoo, white supremacy groups, Wicca, and Satanism. Also includes newly-added groups such as Heaven's Gate, Branch Davidians, Aum Supreme Truth, Boston Church of Christ, Native American religions, Freemassonry, etc. You can order via Amazon by clicking the book icon on the right. My thanks to the blog, Schaaf's Koph, for pointing out this newly-updated book.
