Although I am already a church member, I am interested in other Protestant denominations. I found this book to be a fascinating and well researched overview of Protestant denominations in America. I realize that some feel it should have covered Catholic and other religious groups, but obviously its purpose was to show what major Protestant groups teach and believe. I recommend it highly.

This is a good book as far as understanding doctrines of different churches. It gives an accurate background into each denomination.

I was hoping for much more from this book. What is mystifying are the obvious ommissions. NO mention is made of the Roman Catholic Church, with its hundreds of millions of worldwide members. Also notable by its' abscence is any mention of the Jewish religion. For a New York City native, those are two bigtime "missing items". The author also fails to explain the differences within certain religions. Why are there so many branches of the Lutheran Church or among the Methodists? Does Ms. Steig have any idea? "Finding the Right Church" reads like an eighth grade term paper. It is ok for those seeking the most minimal, general knowledge. Those seeking real details of religions will be as disappointed as I was. To steal a line from Walter Mondale, there is no "beef" here.
