Heresies and How to Avoid ThemDavid Thomson, via The Good Book Stall
I wish I'd had access to this when I was a student! A dozen short chapters, based on a sermon series at Peterhouse Cambridge, give short clear explanations of the major heresies (Arianism, Docetism etc), show how the fit together with each other and the development of mainstream faith, and how they connect with today. The sermon origins keep them accessible, faithful and relevant, and they happily combine a generous spirit with a healthy orthodoxy. Well worth reading, and worth using to inspire your own preaching and teaching too.
