The New Believers

A Survey of Sects, Cults and Alternative Religions

Book - 2001
Rate this:
From variations on the major world religions to the Moonies, Wicca, Scientology, and Transcendental Meditation, this best-selling reference is the best available source on offbeat and alternative organizations, sects, and cult movements. A leading expert on both traditional and new religions discusses human need for spirituality, and acts as a guide through the confusing variety of beliefs that attract fervent adherents. Encyclopedic and international in its scope, some of the groups investigated have received international notoriety, such as the Branch Davidians of Waco and Tokyo's nerve gas wielding Aum Shinrikyo. Earlier editions have sold out--and this will prove equally popular.
