From Carmen Renee Berry, best-selling author of Girlfriends and Daddies and Daughters , comes The Unauthorized Guide to Choosing a Church -the long-awaited response to a most urgent spiritual need. Countless Americans are seeking a spiritual community to call home, but find themselves bewildered by the options. How do you know which church is right for you? What can you expect when you walk in the door? What exactly do these people believe anyway?

Berry's practical and compassionate guide meets church-seekers where they are and empowers them to make an informed decision. Wise, approachable, and humorous, The Unauthorized Guide combines personal stories with a taste of church history, introducing the reader to various denominations. Plain-speech explanations of the history, beliefs, and worship practices of each major denomination (Lutheran to Mennonite, Roman Catholic to Presbyterian) provide an organized and approachable outline of the options. Surveys, sidebars, a glossary, and index make this unique guide interactive and user-friendly, involving, informing, and even entertaining readers as they go along.

The Unauthorized Guide is perfect for those new to church, returning to church, or for anyone who's been looking for an engaging, down-to-earth explanation of the major Christian traditions.

This is an excellent guide to the many Christian denominations that exist. The author gives a wealth of information: history, beliefs, little-known facts. All is presented in an easy-to-understand and occasionally amusing manner.
