The Four Major Cults: Christian Science, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormonism, Seventh-day Adventism


Eerdmans 1963

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Throughout his texts Hoekema brings both his compassionate council from his years as a pastor as well as his erudite expertise from his 25 years of work in academia as a professor of Bible and systematic theology at Calvin Theological Seminary. In The Four Major Cults, Anthony Hoekema presents the doctrinal teachings of Mormonism, Seventh-Day Adventism, Christian Science, and Jehovah’s Witnesses using exclusively primary sources. He then outlines why he sees each as fundamentally incompatible with the core doctrines of Christianity.
