Are You Waiting for the Second Coming of Christ, the Tribulation, the Rapture? But what if everything you know about the End Times...is wrong? In this provocative, exhaustively researched, unprecedented book, Keith Swainson takes you through a series of clear, self-evident conclusions which, when added to one another, form the structure for an understanding of the Bible that will revolutionize how you think about Jesus and Scripture. Heresy takes as its basis the idea that Jesus was truly God in the flesh. Swainson looks at the three genetically interrelated monotheistic religions - Islam, Judaism, and Christianity - and asks: Does the Qur'an hint at Jesus being something more than a mere prophet, or even a great messenger? Does an honest reading of Jewish texts hint at the possibility of God coming in the flesh? Does the Christian faith really treat Jesus as God in the flesh, or does it subject Him to constraints meant for men? Answering these and other questions, Swainson shows us that the seeming contradictions throughout the Bible are confusing only if Jesus is being regarded as a man, not as God. Swainson blows away the dust and cobwebs of millennia of interpretations from a Church full of preconceived notions, and shows that the words and deeds of Jesus, as God in the flesh, preach against a Second Coming. Heresy concludes that the kingdom of God Jesus preached about is fully here and now in the lives of believers throughout the world, and that it cannot be more fully realized than it already is. If the kingdom of God is here and now...what does that mean to you as a believer? Powerful, thought-provoking, and revolutionary, Heresy will take your life, and your faith, in a direction you never imagined possible.
