A wonderful souce of information regarding cults. I have learned much already and am only about a third of the way through the book. I choose to make a distinction between cults and false religion. This book throws them all together and calls them cults - minor point.
Parts of the book are really too acedemic for me. Discussion of the fine points of translating Greek and Hebrew into English loses me, but I understand the necessity.
This is a recognised work on world religions. I once taught world religions at Bible college and used this as a text. The author has since died but the work has many enduring features and was well worth the revised edition. All in all a great book on cults in our time.
Glanced through it. Looks great. Can't wait to read it after my wife finishes it. The subject of cults came up in our last Bible study. Highly recommended this book. Passed along your catalog. Expect some more orders. A must have for your library.
This book is being used as a resource for my bible study series I'm writing for the church that I pastor. It has been extremely helpful and I would recommend it to anyone that is serious about learning where religious groups stray from the orthodox Christian world view.
