Publisher's Summary

The Kingdom of the Cults has been the authoritative reference work on major cult systems for more than 40 years. In an era of rapid cult growth worldwide, Christians today need the information in this book more than ever. It will equip readers from every walk of life to use biblical truth to counter the efforts of cults to masquerade as mainstream Christianity.
Working closely together, Ravi Zacharias and managing editors Jill and Kevin Rische have updated and augmented the work with new material. This book will continue as a crucial tool in countercult ministry and in evangelism for years to come. Among cults and religions included are Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormonism, New Age cults, the Unification Church, Baha’i Faith, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam.
Readable and reliable, this book sets the standard for reference books on cults.
Walter Martin (1928-1989) held four degrees, having received his doctorate from California Coast University in the field of comparative religions. Author of a dozen books and numerous booklets and articles, he founded the Christian Research Institute in 1960.


What the Critics Say

"Since the first edition was published in 1965, Walter Martin’s  The Kingdom of the Cults has been the leading reference work on the major contemporary cult systems. With an emphasis on the active, proselytizing cults,  The Kingdom of the Cults is a crucial tool in counter-cult ministry and evangelism. This edition includes substantial new information, including additional chapters on emerging cults and updated information on established movements. Because of their strong influence on the cults, Eastern religions are also examined. Readers now will find further help in combating the ever widening impact of the cults, not only in the United States but overseas. Scholarly yet readable and engaging,  The Kingdom of the Cults evaluates each cult’s movement’s history and beliefs, showing how each cult’s teachings contrast with true biblical theology. An invaluable reference work for both scholars and laypeople." (Prayer Foundation)
