Major branches and offshoots of Christianity (particularly noting groups that differ with the Nicene Creed or the Apostles' Creed, or who have substantially different Bibles):
group characteristics biblical canon
Catholics have a long history, and deep hierarchy, as evidenced by its complicated canon law, and the rise and fall of its political power
Protestants books removed: Tobit, Judith, 1 & 2 Maccabees, Wisdom (of Solomon), Ben Sira, Baruch
Quakers literally anti-creed, prefer direct personal understanding instead literally no canon, though the Testimonies come the closest
Mormons the Bible is only one of four canonical texts
Jehovah's Witnesses conscientious objectors, refuse blood transfusions their own translation, but same books as KJV
Christian Science rejects hell,
Moonies Divine Principle is a superior adjunct to the Bible
