The Truth War by John MacArthur
In this volume rather than targeting a particular movement or concern the author takes a scatter-gun approach. He discusses the emergent church movement, John Armstrong’s theological flip-flop, the dangers of both modernity and postmodernity, ancient and current Gnosticism, the “Prayer of Jabez,” the “Purpose Driven Life” and the need for proper hermeneutics. In addition, there are a couple of expositional chapters on the epistle of Jude and a quick run through of the heresies of ancient church history.
MacArthur moves rapidly and paints broadly as he details the many concerns he rightly believes faces God’s people today. The Truth War is worth a careful reading for its content as well as for its inspiration to hold the biblical line against the wolves that are springing up among the flock of God in the twenty-first century.
