This book presents the history of heretics that have troubled the church over the last two thousand years, treating errors from AD 100 (Marcion) to the present day (federal vision theology). What sets this book apart is its evaluation of every heresy from a consistently and unashamedly Reformed perspective. The reader will readily grasp the significance of the early heretics as Herman Hanko demonstrates the connection between their heresies and the errors arising later in history. The vibrant writing style brings the hereticsâ€”ancient and modernâ€”to life. This trustworthy guide to the heretics equips believers today to â€ścontend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saintsâ€ť (Jude 1:3).
This book is a companion volume to Hankoâ€™s Portraits of Faithful Saints, a book of short biographies of the defenders of the truth from as far back as AD 100.
