Quotes & Awards

  • “Since the first edition was published in 1965, Walter Martin’s The Kingdom of the Cults has been the leading reference work on the major contemporary cult systems. With an emphasis on the active, proselytizing cults, The Kingdom of the Cults is a crucial tool in counter-cult ministry and evangelism. This edition includes substantial new information, including additional chapters on emerging cults and updated information on established movements. Because of their strong influence on the cults, Eastern religions are also examined. Readers now will find further help in combating the ever widening impact of the cults, not only in the United States but overseas. Scholarly yet readable and engaging, The Kingdom of the Cults evaluates each cult’s movement’s history and beliefs, showing how each cult’s teachings contrast with true biblical theology. An invaluable reference work for both scholars and laypeople.”

Listener Reviews

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Josh Crews | 2/16/2014

    " This is THE well-researched debunking of the Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons (and lots of less prominent cults). Reading the man-centered, un-regenerate history of their origins, history, and doctrines closes the case that these are not well-intentioned but ignorant spin-offs of orthodox Christianity but evil creations that deadly twists of the gospel. I recommend finding the book in someone else's house or the bookstore and reading the Jehovah's Witness and Mormon sections. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Joshua | 2/10/2014

    " This is an excellent book that gives an introductory look into the world of the cults. Dr. Walter Martin spent a life time studying and "working in the filth" so that he could equip Christians in how to preserve their faith in the face of Falsehood and to possibly bring those people to Christ. It is a very good book and I highly recommend it. "

    " This should be standard reading for every believer. "

About the Narrator

Maurice England moved to the Chicago area in the fall of 2006, after a twelve year run as a long-haul trucker, to continue the cultivation of his lifelong interest in the expressive arts and oral interpretation. A veteran audiophile, Maurice listened to well over one thousand audiobooks while on the road and fell in love with the genre. From his past experience in broadcasting, community theater, music performance, and ministry he saw narrating as a means to merge his love for books, ideas, learning, and spiritual evolution with his interest in artistic expression. While his narration experience has primarily been nonfiction, personal development, and spiritual-growth titles, Maurice anticipates using his authentically warm and folksy southern style to entertain and inspire through storytelling. Inspired most by the behind-the-scenes artists who engineer, direct, edit, and master the audiobook productions we hear, Maurice has become an absorbed student and participant in the process.
