Product Description

Written by experts but designed for the novice, the Armchair series provides accurate, concise, and witty overviews of some of the most profound moments and theologians in Christian history. These books are essential supplements for first-time encounters with primary texts, lucid refreshers for scholars and clergy, and enjoyable reads for the theologically curious.

In this unique Armchair volume, noted church historians Justo and Catherine Gonzlez introduce readers to important early church figures whose teachings were denounced by the church as heresies. Instructional for what they taught and for revealing what the church wished to safeguard and uphold, these heretics, including Marcion, Arius, Nestorius, and Pelagius, are engagingly presented in their contexts through a clear and accessible text that is highlighted by the humorous illustrations of Ron Hill. Heretics for Armchair Theologians is an enjoyable way to learn about the church's early life and beliefs.

    I really liked the attitude that heretics were people searching for God but getting it wrong. They were not trying to be sinful and we have to be careful how to deal with heresy.It shows how essential knowing the real Jesus is to forming an effective relationship with God. The only way we can know that is to read the Bible ourselves and be careful not to assume anything.
