Overview

"Eureka!"

In an age of open-mindedness, many believers accept too much with too little discernment, resulting in great confusion and compromise. But God's Word makes it clear that not everything that glitters is gold. False teaching is at every turn, and the temptation to embrace it is great. As God's people we are called to sift through the overwhelming number of traditions and trends and use the truth of Scripture to determine which are the true treasures-and which are "fool's gold."

General editor John MacArthur and the contributors of this uncompromising book define the principles of biblical discernment and use them to address several contemporary Christian issues. They provide straightforward, biblical critiques of some popular but unfortunate Christian trends, such as watered-down preaching and doctrinally questionable best-selling books. Dr. MacArthur ends with a practical plan for cultivating discernment in the Christian life.

It is the duty of every Christian-not just pastors and elders-to follow the biblical command to cling to what is good and to reject what is not. This book will equip you with a foundation for biblical discernment that will enable you to make careful distinctions in your thinking about truth.

In a day and age where Christians are buying into anything with Jesus' name on it, John MacAuthor compares what is popular in Christianity, to what the Bible teaches. MacAuthor discusses some of the most popular theories and writings in contemporary Christianity, and shows the lack and ignorance of scripture in alot of our pratices today. I could not put this book down, and I highly recommend reading it before going and buying another contemporary book on Christianity. You will not be disappointed, and you will leave the book more insightful than most, who are sitting in church pews today.
