Publisher's Description

A travel guide to the key heresies of Christian history
There is a lot of talk about heresy these days. The frequency and volume of accusations of heresy suggest that some Christians have lost a sense of the gravity of the word. On the other hand, many believers have little to no familiarity with orthodox doctrine or the historic distortions of it.

What's needed is a strong dose of humility and restraint, and also a clear and informed definition of orthodoxy and heresy. As a part of the KNOW series, Know the Heretics is designed not only for for personal study or classroom use but also for small groups and Sunday school classes wanting to more deeply understand the foundations of the faith. Each chapter covers a key statement of faith and includes a discussion of its historical context, a simple explanation of the statement's content and key points, reflections on contemporary and ongoing relevance, and discussion questions.

Includes a Foreword by Thomas C. Oden
