I recently read Unification Church by J. Isamu Yamaoto. It is a short book (85 pages), but is well organized and uses an outline form to pack as much information as possible into a small space. This book is just one in a series put out by Zondervan on cults and religious movements.
It starts off with an introduction - historical background on the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, how he started the church, and statistics on the church.
Part 2 is the main part of the book - theology. The book talks about various aspects of Unification theology and how it differs from historical Christianity, using the Bible to refute Moon's teachings. It covers divine revelation, sin, salvation, Christ & the Trinity, resurrection, and heaven & hell.
Part 3 is witnessing tips - how to approach a Unificationist, and what approaches to avoid. Very good suggestions here if you plan on witnessing to a church member.
Part 4 is a bibliography - books for further study, both from the Unification perspective and the Christian perspective.
Part 5 is a sort of summary of part 2 - an at-a-glance chart with Unification theology on one side and Bible verses refuting it on the other.
I recommend this book for anyone wanting to know more about the Rev. Moon and his church.
