Religions A to Z will help all Christians better understand the religions, cults, and sects around them.

Each chapter of the book includes:

  • A brief history of the religion
  • Its central beliefs
  • An overview of its organizational structure
  • References for further study
  • A chart summarizing essential information, including (when applicable): the deity/deities, beginning date, sacred texts, famous leaders, and websites and books for further study

However, Religions A to Z is not a stagnant list of religions and their beliefs because it also includes some subjective material on each religion. The book's author, James A. Beverly, has been studying religious traditions for over a quarter century at institutions such as the Toronto School of Theology. The criticism provided in each section is not necessarily his own, but rather the critique usually centers on general attitudes toward certain beliefs or aspects of a religion.
