Synopsis

Bestselling author Michael Coren explodes popular myths about the history, beliefs, and culture of Christianity.
 
Michael Coren explores why and how Christians and Christian ideas are caricatured in popular media as well as in sophisticated society. He takes on, and debunks, ten great myths about Christianity: that it supports slavery, is racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-intellectual, anti-Semitic, provokes war, resists progress, and is repressive and irrelevant. In a climate that is increasingly as ignorant of Christianity as it is good at condemning it, Coren gives historical background, provides examples of how these attacks are made, and explains the reality of the Christian response, outlining authentic Christian beliefs.

It's pretty clear that Coren favors papists in particular, but mainstream Christians of every stripe get their day in the sun in this one. And it is definitely a sun worth basking in.

Heresy is...nothing but the truth, about 75,000 words of it.

Reading this book is like sitting down and having an intelligent conversation with someone who shares all your interests but happens to have quite a bit more knowledge on the subjects than you do.

Coren’s style is straight forward and you don’t have to have an advanced degree to follow him.

...at times I had the feeling that the author simply was cutting and pasting...Where is the unique insight that this book can contribute to these issues that hasn’t already been said?

But better still would be if those who believe the lies that Heresy takes on were to read Coren's book. Those of them with an open mind would find it a revelation.
