Sites for Information on Smaller Sects?

Are there any sites out there of which you are aware which provide clear, referenced information on any of the so-called “fringe” religions out there, which one could use as sources of data when dealing with these alternative sects? If not, would there be any individuals here interested in helping set up such a site? I personally have limited knowledge and experience in such matters, but have found over the past few years that I would have welcomed having such data available on beliefs like Urantia, the Church Rising and Triumphant, some of the newer, goofier, quasi-freemason beliefs, etc., etc. etc. At this point, I can provide some information on each of the above, should anyone out there find such data useful, but do not know of any others. Thank you.

Good question. Here’s your answer:

World Christian Encyclopedia, published by Oxford University Press. 1,699 pages covering 33,830 denominations. Here’s a link to the author, I think.

Only $295.00. :eek:
