The book surveys the diversity of religion, mostly of historical and contemporary Christian sects and movements but with significant inclusions of Jewish, Muslim, andheathen religious groups.

Adamss particular contribution was the self-conscious effort to treat all religious groups on the same level and to avoid explicit or implicit judgments. She preferred to use self-descriptions where she had them. It is this non-normative approach that gives the book itshistorical value. Thomas Tweeds introduction discusses Adamss life and sets her and her book usefully in their context. He includes a helpful guide to the key entries.
