The A to Z of New Religious Movements is a major contribution to understanding new and formative religions - leaving evaluation to the reader - providing brief descriptions of more than 100 religions with information on the founders and leaders and their roots in Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and other more traditional religions, as well as the impact of modern philosophy and science. The chronology begins in the 18th century, tracing the movements from their roots; the introduction defines and categorizes the NRMs; and the bibliography provides further reading.
