Cults, World Religions and the Occult

Almost every day you hear of a new religion-or rediscover an old one. It used to be that you only heard of these religions when missionaries spoke at your church. Now their followers send missionaries to our doorsteps.


In Cults, World Religions and the Occult-a revised and expanded version of the best-selling Cults, World Religions and You-Ken Boa explains:

The history of each religious movement

The distinctive teachings of each

How their followers live

How you can respond to these spiritual counterfeits with biblical truth and compassion

It's all arranged in a handy easy-to-understand guide designed to provide precise and pertinent information when you need it.

Kenneth Boa holds a Ph.D. degree from New York University and has done postdoctoral studies at the University of Oxford, England. He is involved in a varied ministry of lifestyle evangelism and discipleship, teaching, writing, and speaking. He lives with his wife, Karen, and daughter, Heather, in Marietta, Georgia.
