What don't Christians believe? Is Jesus really divine? Is Jesus really human? Can God suffer? Can people be saved by their own efforts?

The early church puzzled over these questions, ruling in some beliefs and ruling out others. Heresies and How to Avoid Them explains the principal ancient heresies and shows why contemporary Christians still need to know about them. These famous detours in Christian believing seemed plausible and attractive to many people in the past, and most can still be found in modern-day guises. By learning what it is that Christians don't believe--and why--believers today can gain a deeper, truer understanding of their faith.

Michael Ward

Michael Ward was born in Cuckfield, Sussex, England. He is Senior Research Fellow of Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, and Professor of Apologetics at Houston Baptist University, Texas. He has loved the Narnia Chronicles since he was a boy.

He first wrote about C.S. Lewis while working for his English degree at the University of Oxford. He lived at Lewis' former home in Oxford, The Kilns, as resident warden for three years (1996-1999), sleeping in the late professor's old bedroom and studying in his study. He appeared in Shadowlands, the film about Lewis' marriage and bereavement. He did his PhD at the University of St. Andrews, and his dissertation was published as Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C.S. Lewis (Oxford University Press, 2008). The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) commissioned and broadcast a television documentary about Planet Narnia called The Narnia Code in 2009.

Dr. Ward has written numerous scholarly articles on C.S. Lewis and has lectured around the world on his life and work. He is also the coeditor of The Cambridge Companion to C.S. Lewis (2010) and Heresies and How to Avoid Them: Why It Matters What Christians Believe (2007).

On the fiftieth anniversary of Lewis' death, Dr Ward unveiled a permanent national memorial to him in Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey, London.
