Distorted Christian teachings continue to threaten effective and thoughtful faith.
Heresies are not limited to times of long ago. True, major heretical controversies originated ages ago, but many of these same errors and myths continue to circulate through congregations of today. Author Roger E. Olson helps church pastors and leaders know how to deal with these artificial truths—how to explain that they are not simple confusions or misunderstandings, but are instead counterfeit teachings that plague modern-day churches by undermining and dangerously distorting faithful living. He also demonstrates how heresies can serve the church by opening up a dialog that will ultimately educate congregations about Jesus, God, and salvation.
