The Handbook of Denominations, also known as Abingdon's Handbook of
Denominations, by Frank S. Mead and Samuel Hill, is a reference work
on religious denominations, particularly but not exclusively Christian
ones, based in
North America or extensively represented there (i.e.,
the Roman Catholic Church). Published by the Nashville,
Tennessee-based United Methodist Publishing House, is intended to be
an authoritative guide to the history, polity, and doctrines of
various religious groups. The work is periodically updated to keep
pace with changes in the groups chronicled and to document the
formation of new groups.
The book was ranked 323rd most stocked book by
OCLC in 2005.
