Overview

The best-selling Denominations Comparison ebook contains a side-by-side comparison of what 12 Christian denominations believe about God, the Trinity, Jesus, and other spiritual issues. This easy-to-read ebook summarizes the beliefs of the different denominations on key topics and includes a "Family Tree of Denominations" which reveals the roots of today's denominations. Denominations Comparison includes a look at: Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, Anglican, Presbyterian, Methodist, Anabaptist, Congregational, Baptist, Presbyterian, Churches of Christ, Adventist, and Pentecostal churches.

Each denomination believes in the deity of Christ and the importance of Scripture, so how are the groups different? The Denominations Comparison shows what denominations have in common as well as where they differ. The Denominations Comparison ebook compares 12 denominations on 11 different topics, such as:
•When it was founded and by whom
•The number of adherents in 2000
•How Scripture is viewed
•Who God is
•Who Jesus is
•How individuals are saved
•What happens after death
•The definition of the Church
•How each looks at the Sacraments
•Other practices and beliefs
•The major divisions and trends today.

The Denominations Comparison ebook is an excellent source for pastors and teachers who want to present denominational beliefs in a concise and focused manner.

    Very Good basic overview of Christian denominations

    This pamphlet saddens me. Jesus prayed that his followers would all be one as He and the Father are one. Denominations fly in the face of that prayer. I know that sometimes, separating is necessary and right. But sadly, separation is often unnecessary and wrong. That being said, Rose here provides a very very good examination of the main denominations within Christendom. Professor Bowman along with research consultant Eric Pement cover 12 of the main denominations dividing them into two groups: 1. Liturgical: Roman Catholic Orthodox Lutheran Anglican (Episcopalian) Presbyterian Methodist 2. Non-Liturgical: Anabaptist Congregational Baptist Churches of Christ Adventist Pentecostal Other groups are covered as well such as Calvary Chapel, CMA, Salvation Army and Vineyard. Also extremely helpful is a two page mini-glossary of 42 terms that are helpful to know and understand when navigating through the intricacies of Christianity's many denominations. My favorite part of this whole pamphlet is the Family Tree of Denominations showing (in a great visual chart form for us thick-headed visual learners) the branches of division from the great Roman/Orthodox schism of 1054 down to today. I highly recommend buying, studying and carrying this pamphlet (fits nicely in most Bibles) as it makes a great conversation starter with someone who asks that classic question: So what's the difference between all these different denominations, anyway?!

    I was provided a free copy of this pamphlet from Rose Publishing for a free, unbiased, honest review.
