5.0 out of 5 stars Confused by all the 'isms'?
Deals with most of the 'isms' (Donatism, gnosticism etc..) and the councils that tried to explain these complex issues. It does this well. Gives a potted history of Christology and is very readable as it is written as a series of short sermons which tackle the subject of heresy (I did not know that even some heresies can be good!!) and gives a great guide for those who...

3.0 out of 5 stars Well presented, 22 May 2009
This review is from: Heresies and How to Avoid Them (Paperback)
There is, the old saying goes, nothing new under the sun. And this well-presented book reminds Christians of every persuasion that some of the basic orthodoxies of belief have been challenged since the beginning of the Church's history. It also provides a good check-list of whether your own christian beliefs - if you profess them - are in fact true to the Church's actual teachings.

The most famous heresis and disputes are examined here, and the arguments are clearly stated. The book's design is intelligent, too, enabling the reader to answer the questions that each particular heresy poses:

So grapple, if you are up to it, with such knotty issues as "Did Christ really suffer on the Cross at all?", "Was Christ human or divine?" "Are we predestined to be saved" etc etc. This is not just a dry book on ancient history, but startlingly relevent to the present, especially to a christian landscape over-run by the whole gimme prosperity prayers of evangelical US churches.

This review is from: Heresies and How to Avoid Them (Paperback)
This is an excellent book particularly for students, giving a very accessible insight to the beliefs of the Early Church Fsthers.
I did not give it a 5 because the book arrived with the covering on the back cover was beginning to peel back.
