This book was a waste of my money and time. I was looking for a thorough exposition of the relevant, important, and historic differences between denominations; Dr. Rhodes does a poor job of giving this to the reader. I know this because of the denominations I am very closely associated with (or have been associate with), he does a poor job of getting to the important and essential real differences of which I am very familiar. This book was so poorly done that I threw it away in great frustration and disappointment (especially compared to the great work he has done on the cults). DON"T BUY IT!!

This book was much better than I expected. It has sections for salvation beliefs, sacraments, etc. I wish I'd have bought it years ago.

I recommend this study wholeheartedly. It is a great discussion starter and really makes you think about what you believe and why you believe it.

This book is awesome! We're using it in our Sunday School Class. It's something we all wanted to learn without getting too deep into theology and facts. We wanted the basics and they're all in this book.
