A Handbook For Heretics discusses the differences between religion and the Kingdom of God. Many mainline churches resist the current reformation, a gradual movement away from traditional Christianity toward a vital spirituality. Its adherents are frequently labeled "heretics" when in fact they are actually the leading edge of a new spiritual age. They are discovering the "much more" which Jesus promised to tell us, such spiritual phenomena as out-of-body and near-death experiences, pre-birth and post-death appearances, angel communication, and "coincidental" experiences. A Handbook For Heretics reconsiders some traditional Christian doctrines so as to broaden the church's view of spiritual reality.
