"The 'New Age Encyclopedia' moves away from the polemical stances taken by Evangelical Christians, skeptics, and others to provide a balanced, objective, and comprehensive overview of the New Age Movement as well as information about its many ideological and structural components and major leaders. The authors have endeavored to provide a clear, factual description of the New Age world -- its people, organizations, and opinions concerning the movement's viability or its ultimate religious or philosophical value. The Encyclopedia also brings together the diverse elements of the movement for the first time, providing readers with a convenient and authoritative source for information on the New Age. .... The 'New Age Encyclopedia' contains more than 300 descriptive listings arranged in a single alphabetic sequence". -- Intro., p. vii -viii.

Notes
"[Edited by] J. Gordon Melton".
"Each issue of 'The Churches Speak' begins with an introductory essay which provides an overview of the topic itself and traces its recent historical manifestations. This essay also summarize, compares, and contrasts the opinions found in the individual statements, allowing the user to place each one in the appropriate context. Each essay concludes with bibliographic citations to sources for further reading on the topic. The statements presented in each monograph are arranged into four main sections based on broad religious families or traditions: The Roman Catholic Church (which represents the single largest religious body in the United States); Protestant and Eastern Orthodox Churches; Jewish Groups; and Other Religious Bodies. Within the Roman Catholic Church section, statements are arranged chronologically by issuing date. The remaining sections are subarranged alphabetically by individual churches, religious bodies, or ecumenical organizations; the statements issued by each organization are presented chronologically within that organization. Each of the four religious family sections is preceded by a note which provides background information of the family and analysis of its perspective on the issue in question." -- Preface.
