In recent years, the distinction between heresy and orthodoxy has come under fire by those eager to reject the formal boundaries of sanctioned beliefs about Jesus.

Leading religion and church history expert Alister McGrath argues that the categories of heresy and orthodoxy must be preserved by the church today. Despite accusations that traditional dogma is outdated, the mandate of the Church is still to remain faithful to Jesus's mission and message. In Heresy, McGrath presents the fascinating story of heresy throughout Christian history and sheds light on these shunned beliefs and their popular appeal today. Alister E. McGrath is a biochemist and Christian theologian born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and currently enjoys the Title of Distinction "Professor of Historical Theology" granted by the University of Oxford. He is the author of several books on theology and history, including In the Beginning: The Story of the King James Bible and How it Changed a Nation, a Language, and a Culture and The Twilight of Atheism: The Rise and Fall of Disbelief in the Modern World. He lives in Oxford, England and lectures regularly in the U.S. "Not only a riveting story of ancient controversies, but also a much needed and timely correction to the commonly held notion that heretics were mostly free thinkers who challenged a narrow and closed orthodoxy. Readers will gain both a better understanding of ancient heresies, and a renewed appreciation for Christian orthodoxy." - Justo L. González, author of The Story of Christianity
