In his preface to the book, James Sire writes:
As Christians and, we trust, good readers of the Bible, we need all the help we can get to be sure we are reading the Scripture accurately, that we are indeed worshiping the one true God. That's why I wrote this book: to help all of us-myself as much as anyone-to become better readers of the Scriptures, more devoted followers of our Lord Jesus Christ, more effective communicators of God's truth to all people. But the book also seeks a special audience-those being led, as are so many today, by false teachers into false doctrines and perhaps eventually into eternal darkness (Sire, p. 8).
While the text and the examples within the book are focused on the cults, the lessons are equally important today within Christianity. People within the church misuse and abuse the Bible in the same manner as the cults. Satan uses the same playbook in both cases.Read more ›
