About this book
With contributions from internationally renowned scholars, readers will learn about the decisions that radically affected the course of history, and still shape Christianity today, in this accessible guide. Was Jesus divine? Was he human? Could God suffer? These questions have orthodox and heretical answers, and are examined in this book.
Anyone could be a Christian, but a Christian could not believe simply anything. Here, twelve top theologians, all practising Christians, tackle ancient heresies and show why the contemporary Church needs to know about them. They argue that heresies are never finally defeated but always continue in some form or other as live options for belief.
