Publisher's Summary

Sex and money scandals. An exploding divorce rate. Drug-addicted youths. And an ever-growing worldliness. Today's evangelical church is fighting battles on all fronts. And we seem to be losing these battles to the relentlessly encroaching world. Perhaps the answers to our problems are not in the present, but in the past. Because there was time when Christians were able to stand up to world.
The author takes you on an engrossing journey back to the time - back to the end of the first century. Here is an inspiring account of what Christians believed and practiced at the close of the age of the apostles - and how the church eventually lost the Christianity of that time.
But Will the Real Heretics Please Stand Up is not primarily a history book. It's a fresh, creative look at the problems facing the church today - and the solution to those problems. It's a call for today's church to return to the simple holiness, unfailing love, and patient cross-bearing of the early Christians.

Insightful.

Very insightful. The author does a good job comparing holy scripture to the early Christian writings which clearly showed the truth in practices of early Christians.

Every Christian on Earth should read this book !

Whether you consider yourself an ultra-conservative Christian who can trace their Roots back to the first century or a modern 21st Christian who attends a megachurch you need to read this book. before you listen to what one more modrrn preachee or pastor has to say on his interpretation of the church that Jesus Christ established, read with the apostles and their early disciples said about the purpose of the Lord's church and how it was to change the world. You might get mad, you will definitely be sad but this book will affect you... you will not be the same afterwards and you will not View the Christianity that is in the world today the same after reading what the writers in the first three centuries wrote about the pattern of the church that the apostles left for them to follow. For too long Christians have accepted the history of the church based on what men who lived a thousand or two thousand years afterwards interpreted as being... it's time you read what those that were living it at the time actually said about it and how they felt Jesus expected them to live and to organize his church and to treat each other, and also their position in the world. David Percor does a fantastic job in his research and orderly presentation of these thoughts and ideas from the early church writers. MUST READ.
