This informative handbook provides a great deal of useful information about churches and religious organizations in Ukraine. Edited by the Ukrainian State Committee of Religious Affairs, the directory gives up-to-date information about Ukrainian churches, monasteries, missions, schools, and a host of other religious organizations. It also lists religious mass media in Ukraine, including general information about the organizations and their leaders, addresses, and telephone numbers. The East-West Church & Ministry Report 19 (Winter 2002) published an excerpt from another study in the area of Ukrainian religious statistics published by the Fund for Democratic Initiatives. Although the study by the State Committee of Religious Affairs is more recent (published in 2001) and contains much useful information, the study by Democratic Initiatives (published in 2000) gives more statistical interpretation. The former is technical, factual, and detailed, while the latter is more general and analytical, giving a larger picture of the religious situation in Ukraine. Students of religion in Ukraine will definitely appreciate both sources.
