Publisher Description

In an era of rapid growth of false religions worldwide, Christians need information they can trust. This comprehensive new edition of the leading book on cults will equip you—no matter your background—to understand and use biblical truth to counter false religions, including many that masquerade as mainstream Christianity.

Reflecting the developments in cults and world religions in recent years, this edition, updated by expert Jill Martin Rische (daughter of Walter Martin), gives you the authoritative information you need to know. As our culture becomes less and less outwardly Christian, awareness of the belief systems of those around us has never been more vital.

Accessible and reliable for everyone, whether you're a teacher, a pastor, or a regular church attender, The Kingdom of the Cults remains the go-to reference book on this crucial topic.

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " Didn't read every chapter, but overall I greatly enjoyed this book and felt that it gave very nice overviews of each belief system. The chapters on the psychological processes and ways to evangelize were particularly interesting and helpful in my understanding of the topics. "

    " I met Dr. Walter Martin before he left this earth and he is one of the best and most knowledgeable researchers on cults--he gives all the facts (which are very interesting) and lets YOU see for yourself who those nice, pleasant (misguided) folks are that come knocking on your door. "

    " I got this book for research purposes, and it's the kind of book that would never get written now as it would result in a million libel cases. WRM basically tells you what numerous popular cults believe, how they act, and what the "true" origins of each organisation are, all from his viewpoint as a Christian scholar. A very fascinating read. "

    " It's more of a reference book and I've only studied, Islam, Mormonism, Scientology, JWs, and a few others. The material doesn't read as objective as I'd like but it definitely goes into great detail on things such as origin, founder/s, practices, core beliefs. "
