A Handbook For Heretics offers a thought-provoking vision and describes the modern reformation.

Abstract:
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.

  A surprisingly good book , 11/03/2003
Reviewer: Joe Durepos
Writer's Digest 1Oth Annual International Self-published Book Awards Evaluation A Handbook For Heretics: From Religion to the Kingdom of God This a surprisingly good book about a former Presbyterian minister's spiritual awakening outside the institutional Church. His journey is marked by a lucid accounting of those things in the Christian faith and the Bible he feels are wrongly interpreted in light of his experiences. The sad part of this is the author losing his support within the church structure he grew up in. However, he's not bitter, or angry. I particularly enjoyed the honesty and insight the author shares. He continues to believe and practice a faith informed by many sources. His openness and tolerance are hallmarks of a mature and genuine spiritual soul. Many people wounded by institutional churches may well find welcome and comfort within the pages of this book. My quibbles with the book are minor. First, the word spacing and the smallness of the type make it a little hard to read. Also, the book looks like the very kind of book that someone wounded by a traditional church might shy away from. My first thoughts upon looking at the book were that it was an Evangelical or CBA (Christian Booksellers Association) type of book. I would encourage a different look on future printings, appealing to a nontraditional spiritual readership, and also, redesign the pages with a more open layout for ease of readability. Overall though, I enjoyed the book. Joe Durepos 5114 1/2 Main Street Downers Grove, IL 60515 e-mail: jdurepos@aol.com
