Publisher's Summary

Hilaire Belloc examines the five most destructive heretical movements to have affected Christian civilization: Arianism, Mohammedanism (Islam), Albigensianism (Cathar), the Reformation (Protestant), and the modern phase. Belloc describes how these movements began, how they spread, and how they continued to influence the world up until the time of his writing (1936). The chapter on Islam is especially relevant today; in it Belloc accurately predicts the renewal of jihadist aggression towards western civilization.

Could not hold my attention

An excellent book, but the reader could not hold my attention. He did not read with an understanding of the material. I lost a little bit of respect for the reader when he pronounced “beatitude” as “beautitude”.

Classic and timeless

This book describes with important facts and details the five main Christian heresies, a classic piece of Church history. It is timeless because even if it was written in 1930's, it still valid for our days.
I highly recommend those chapters that talk about Islam and Modernism.
