Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book takes a practical approach to studying the cults, focusing attention on 12 of the primary representative cults or categories of cults.

Synopsis:

Cults and New Religions Aren't Hard to Find

They're in your neighborhood . . . your workplace . . . your school . . . maybe even your family.

Cults are flourishing across America. Chances are, you've encountered one, perhaps even know someone who is involved in a cult. Can you discuss knowledgably the critical differences between Christianity and the teachings of Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Scientology, the New Age movement, Hindu-based cults, and other prominent groups and religious movements?

In this essential resource, preeminent cult authority Ron Rhodes explains what cults are, why they are cause for concern, and why in the 21st century, as never before, their numbers and memberships are exploding nationally and worldwide. Drawing on his extensive experience as a cult researcher, Rhodes offers to-the-point, cutting-edge information on twelve major cults and new religions:

Mormonism

Jehovah's Witnesses

Mind Sciences

New Age Movement

Church of Scientology

Hindu-based Cults

Unification Church

Baha'i Faith

Unitarian Universalism

Oneness Pentecostalism

Masonic Lodge

Satanism

Learning the distinctives of these groups will equip you to deal with any of the thousands of other less significant cults you may encounter. The Challenge of the Cults and New Religion includes

Color photos

Scripture Index

Subject Index

Glossary

Bibliography

And your resources don't end at the last page. You can supplement your knowledge whenever you choose by visiting the author's Web site at www.ronrhodes.org for free, thorough, up-to-the-minute information on each cult discussed in the book.

If you'reconcerned for the temporal and eternal welfare of others, The Challenge of the Cults is a must. It will help you confront the deception of false Christs and lying doctrines with the clear, well-grounded truth of biblical Christianity.
