The completely updated and expanded Melton's Encyclopedia of American Religions, 8th edition offers authoritative information on the full range of American religious organizations, including unclassified as well as defunct groups not found in other directories on religion. From Adventists to Zen Buddhists, Melton's Encyclopedia of American Religions, edited by J. Gordon Melton, founding director of the Institute for the Study of American Religion in Santa Barbara, California, provides comprehensive and compelling coverage of the American religious landscape for students, scholars and general researchers alike.

The 30th anniversary of the 1st edition is a comprehensive resource that covers more than 2,800 North American religious organizations, including nearly 200 entirely new listings. In addition, the encyclopedia also features detailed introductory essays; 24 narrative chapters describing the historical development of religious families; and maps, tables, charts, chronologies and graphs bringing statistical information to life. Entries typically include: name of religious organization; fully updated contact information, including address, phone, e-mail and Web site (when available); description of the organization; membership figures; publications; educational facilities; subjects; bibliographies of sources of additional information; and much more.

The standard reference in the field for more than 25 years, Melton's Encyclopedia of American Religion is available through the Gale Directory Library as well as in print and eBook format.
