He carefully drew out the differences of thought between the Calvinist and Arminian theologies and sided with the Calvinist views on humanity's will. Edwards sought to understand God's foreknowledge and how it related to free will and the ability to choose between good and evil. I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist argues that Christianity requires the least faith of all worldviews because it is the most reasonable.
The authors lay out the evidence for truth, God, and the Bible in logical order and in a readable, non-technical, engaging style. A valuable aid to those interested in examining the reasonableness of the Christian faith, Geisler and Turek provide a firm challenge to the prior beliefs of doubters and skeptics. What would God say about those who blatantly misrepresent His Holy Spirit; who exchange true worship for chaotic fits of mindless ecstasy; who replace the biblical gospel with vain illusions of health and wealth; who claim to prophesy in His name yet speak errors; and who sell false hope to desperate people for millions of dollars?
The charismatic movement has always been a breeding-ground for scandal, greed, bad doctrine, and all kinds of spiritual chicanery. As a movement, it is clearly headed the wrong direction. And it is growing at an unprecedented rate. Sproul shows that the truths of Scripture relate to each other in perfect harmony. This eye-opening series addresses a myriad of questions about the origin and authority of the Bible, God, the Trinity, man, sin, salvation, revelation, miracles, the church, the end times, and more.
Jesus Among Other Gods is a brilliant defense of the uniqueness of the Christian message. In addition to giving you the benefit of an impressive breadth of reading and study, Ravi Zacharias shares his personal journey from despair and meaninglessness to his discovery that Jesus is who He said He is. In an era of rapid cult growth worldwide, Christians today need the information in this book more than ever.
It will equip readers from every walk of life to use biblical truth to counter the efforts of cults to masquerade as mainstream Christianity. Working closely together, Ravi Zacharias and managing editors Jill and Kevin Rische have updated and augmented the work with new material. This book will continue as a crucial tool in countercult ministry and in evangelism for years to come.
Walter Martin held four degrees, having received his doctorate from California Coast University in the field of comparative religions.

A great read. If you want to see what the difference between "true" Christianity and a cult, this is the book to read. Very clear and concise. A smooth, well thought out overview of the cults, perfectly voiced by Mr. The problem is there is so much info you're never going to get it all in in one, two or even three readings. And seeing that this book is almost 39 hours long I'm praying to Jesus to make stick what he wants me to retain because I don't care how interesting this book is I don't want to spend that much time in a reread. I recommend. The book delivers what it promises.
God Bless. Jesus is the only way. Enjoyed the narration. Now, about the book. Highly recommended for any Christian. Every major religion is covered. All Eastern spiritualism is covered. Almost every modern minor and major cult uprising that effected millions of souls at one time is covered. Even Christian groups who have strange doctrines that don't effect your salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ are covered like the Seventh Day Adventists.
There is a Quick Facts section before each chapter to help remember the key points.
There is a dual benefit for the Christian listening through this book. When you get to the debunking portions of false religions and cults, there is great depth of evidence from scripture used, which in turn will strengthen the faith of a Christian hearing scriptural authority of Christian doctrines. For example: when listening through reasons to reject Jehovas Witness and Islam who deny the trinity, Walter Martin goes into great depth of scriptural evidence for the trinity.
When listening to the many cults and false religions who deny the divinity of Jesus Christ, the author goes into great depth of verses to counter their claims. So, while learning about cults your faith in Jesus Christ and knowledge of the doctrines of Christianity will be strengthened at the same time. Would you consider the audio edition of The Kingdom of the Cults to be better than the print version? I actually own this book in the printed form, as it was a required text book for the course Christian Apologetics at the University I attended.
I wish it had been available in Audio form back then, as I am not a good reader but a great listener. Who was your favorite character and why? I love the section on Mormonism, because My mom and some of my sisters and nieces and nephews are Mormons. I have had a hard time sharing the truth about Mormonism with them because they refuse to listen.
This book is helping me to "speak the Truth in love". Which character — as performed by Maurice England — was your favorite? Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry? Inspired me to see the background and history of these cults for what they are. Deviations from the truth. Many of these "doctrine of demons" have existed since the first century AD.
Any additional comments? The chapter about "how to witness to a cult Member" was amazing. God bless this book as it touches many for the faith of Christ. Would you listen to The Kingdom of the Cults again? YES I would listen to this audio book again and I bought the book on Amazon as a resource to be able to go to the different sections immediately. This is also an excellent way to study your bible, Dr. Walter Martin gives scripture to combat and lay to rest the claims of the various cult founder, successors and supporters. I thought every chapter was an excellent outline, detail and then synopsis of each religious cults start, their founder and their blunders in proliferating their material.
I LOVE that he included many scriptures to combat the false information and false prophets. Martin was also very focused in telling the reader that our great commission is to tell the good news of our savior Jesus Christ in the gospel and to love and enlighten people that have fallen into these false prophesies and false prophets hands. Which scene was your favorite? I didn't really have a favorite, I went into it with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised at the detail and the overall message to Christians to speak the gospel truth and the numerous scriptures that backed up his unbelievably detailed research on each sect.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? It was riveting from start to finish, I listened to it every chance I got. Great analysis from every angle, you get in dept understanding of each cults difference's measured against historical Christianity and Bible. Recommend for born-again Christian's. Learn why all the cults are wrong and what their beliefs are. Written well and narrated with excellence. If anyone gives this book a bad review they must be in a cult. This book exposes them for who they are.
Complex and engaging difficult topics that are still relevant today. Too bad the author is not with us anymore Zoroastrianism Yazidis Ossetian. Sindoism Cheondoism Jeungsanism. Shinto Tenrikyo Ryukyuan. Ahom Mo Satsana Phi. Note: 1 The main source: Eliade, Mircea , ed.
