Were most cults and new religions simply passing fads of the
late-twentieth century, or are some of them still growing today? What new sects
have emerged, and what dangers do they present? How should Christians respond?
Bible teacher and apologetics expert Ron Rhodes has
cataloged 40 groups in this concise and easy-to-use handbook. Readers will
appreciate Ron's thorough research and his reader-friendly style. His brief
examination of each group includes
- a short history of the sect or new religion
- an explanation of the group's major doctrines
- the Christian apologetic response
This informative guide includes a list of "Apologetic Power
Points," which provides readers with a fast-paced summary of the foundational
truths of biblical Christianity.
JohnGreenville, SCAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Does the job quite wellNovember 21, 2014JohnGreenville, SCAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I run a website and also do a bit of evangelism/apologetics. One of my tasks is to dialogue and or send letters to the cults,and false churches in my area (Denver, CO) of which I have no small task. This book is perhaps the best for giving a overall synopsis of the major cults. While this book does not address Progressive Liberal "Christians" (Gay/Homosexual), the emerging church, the word of faith movement, and such I have other books that touch those groups. So for the task this book has set out to accomplish I absolutely love it and find it superior to my other books on the topic (So Whats the difference?, Josh McDowell book on the cults). The apologetic power points are especially helpful to defend Biblical Christianity. My major gripe of the book (despite all its praises) is a lack of a topical index in the back. Surely this would have been quite helpful. I recommend this book to not only the bible college student, but to those wanting some good information on the cults, but also those doing the same thing I am doing, and that is challenging the cults in their area and proclaiming Christ to them.
