When Cultists Ask proceeds through the Bible, book by book, showing how cults have used prominent texts for their own purposes. The authors then give the orthodox interpretation of the passage in question, and illustrate how the text has been isolated by one or more of the groups to support their own doctrine.
In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in When Cultists Ask are tagged and appear on mouse-over, and all Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “cult” or “doctrine.”
