Heresies And How To Avoid Them

Full Product Description

Anyone could be a Christian, but a Christian could not believe simply anything. Here, twelve top theologians, all practising Christians, tackle ancient heresies and show why the contemporary Church needs to know about them. They argue that heresies are never finally defeated but always continue in some form or other as live options for belief.
