Item Description...
Bad ideas have a maddening tendency to get recycled. In Heresies and How to Avoid Them an esteemed group of practicing theologians help contemporary Christians grasp why historically orthodox theology leads them to believe certain things, while rejecting others. Readers will learn about the decisions that radically affected the course of church history - and that still shape Christianity today. They tackle twelve ancient heresies, and clarify what these early aberrations were, how they developed, and why they have been discarded by believers through the centuries.

Are You A Heretic? Find Out Today!  Aug 13, 2008
This is a very readable book, owing to the fact that each chapter was originally a sermon, which had actually been preached, not just written. Each chapter details a different heresy following the same pattern: What is it, what are the key Scriptures concerning it (whether supportive or destructive), then the sermon itself detailing the historical form the heresy took and in fulfillment of the title, a how to avoid them today. A strength of this book is the sometimes sympathetic look it gives to the heretic himself. It is not the case with all heretics of the early church that they simply wanted to destroy the truth or somehow distort it for personal profit. Many of the men labeled heretic were as sincere about their faith as the orthodox opponents who eventually triumphed over them. They were just wrong. An excellent aspect of the chapters is that they provide some perspective on the "what if" factor of the heretic. What if Arius was right, what would that mean to Christianity? This brings the reader into the debate and allows him or her to understand that these teachings were not declared heretical because they differed from the people in power, but because they really were contrary to the consistent teaching of Christ.

The format of the book makes it a quick book to read. The information packed into each chapter is definitely worth keeping on hand. This book will become a handy reference for those who confuse all the heretical -isms; one chapter per heresy makes it easy to find what you're looking for. The only criticism I have is that the last part of every chapter was devoted to seeing how each heresy was present today and how to avoid it, and this seemed a little forced in some of the chapters. For example, chapter 4 on Eutychianism, the author was forced to concede that this was not a prevalent heresy today, even though he continued from there to tell the reader how to avoid it.
Fantastic!!!  May 24, 2008
What a great little book!
As someone that works with the cults, I found their indepth but clear explanations and discussions essential to understanding some of the issues involved in early church doctrines. The authors are very fair to those that held less orthodox beliefs, suggesting that many 'heretical' beliefs began out of a desire to provoke thought and get to the meat of a dogma or belief.
I would recommend this to any Bible student, seminarian, pastor or interested lay person. It's a real gem with lots of information and clarity.
