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.
