Patheos is a newly launched website written by religion experts in easy to understand terms. A cool feature of Patheos is that the information is organized into different layers, so you have the options of Side by Side Comparison, Snapshot Lens, Tree Lens, and a few others.
And if you still can’t find what you are looking for, well, they have an FAQ and Ask An Expert section.
I really like the Side By Side Comparison feature. For instance, here’s a look at Baptists, Methodists, and Presbyterians. You have a choice of seeing the comparison in an overview, and if you want more detail, you can expand a section and then click on a “View Detail”.
Here’s a small snippet from their About page to give you a sense of what they are all about:
The foundation of Patheos is an expansive library of easy-to-read information on world religions unmatched in terms of depth and breadth by any other resource currently available on the Web. All library material is original and produced by the world’s leading theological experts, many from top North American colleges and universities, with author bios and credentials accessible on the site to visitors. Additionally, all library content has been peer-reviewed to ensure the highest level of credibility, objectivity and accuracy.
And yes, I spent a lot of time on this website. 😉
