In today’s age, the line between heresy and orthodoxy is becoming increasingly blurred; many are eager to reject the sanctioned beliefs about Christianity, claiming the dogma is outdated and restricts individual freedom. Heresy: A History of Defending the Truth by Alister McGrath makes the argument that the church must continue to defend the truth about Jesus by revealing the surprising history of heresy and rival forms of Christianity. In anticipation of the upcoming paperback release, we are offering free hardcover examination copies to the first 200 to respond.
McGrath refutes many misconceptions regarding the history of Christianity, equipping the church to meet the challenge from renewed forms of heresy by presenting a powerful and deeply attractive new orthodoxy backed by historical evidence.
Praise for Heresy:
“Not only a riveting story of ancient controversies, but also a much needed and timely correction to the commonly held notion that heretics were mostly free thinkers who challenged a narrow and closed orthodoxy.”— Justo L. González, author of The Story of Christianity
“A penetrating examination by an intellectual powerhouse.”—Booklist
