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.
I did not give it a 5 because the book arrived with the covering on the back cover was beginning to peel back.
