Watch Gary DeMar discuss The Reduction of Christianity
Has the church merely been seduced, or has it been reduced as well?
"New Age" thinking has swept over the modern Church in a tidal wave of heresy, error and seduction. A number of valiant defenders of historical Biblical orthodoxy have risen to the challenge, most notably Dave Hunt. Unfortunately, while ably sounding the alarms and capably rousing the troops, Hunt and many of his colleagues have reduced the breadth and depth and power of the Faith once for all delivered to the saints. Unwittingly, they have offered the Church a shrunken and truncated version of the Gospel.
But we don't have to accept reduction in order to avoid seduction. We can contend for the Faith without condensing or abbreviating it.
In this capably written, courteously argued and comprehensively detailed book, authors DeMar and Leithart show us how. They show us how to confront the error of "New Age" thought with the power of the truth the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
The Reduction of Christianity is a must-read for anyone concerned about the New Age movement while at the same time desiring to be faithful to the fullness of the Christian Faith.
