The Leading Reference Tool on Non-Christian Religions, Now Completely Updated!

In an era of confusing religious ideas, Christians need information they can trust. And as Western culture drifts further and further from its Christian roots, there is an even greater need for awareness of the beliefs of those around us. The Kingdom of the Cults equips readers to understand the claims of numerous cults, sects, and religions--including some that masquerade as Christian denominations--contrasting those claims with biblical teaching.

This new edition, comprehensively updated by experts Jill Martin Rische and Kurt Van Gorden, builds on Dr. Martin's authoritative original text, and includes helpful information about changes and developments in belief systems around the globe in recent years.

Readable and reliable for teachers, pastors, and lay readers alike, The Kingdom of the Cults is sure to remain the go-to reference book on non-Christian religions for years to come.
