Avoid these books like the plague…

In light of our recent posts on ‘must-read’ Christian books, I thought it would be fun (and somewhat controversial) to post a list of books to avoid like the plague.  So here’s my quick list of 10 (or more)…

  • Anything by Brian McClaren
  • Anything by Rob Bell
  • Anything by Joel Osteen
  • Anything by Joyce Myers
  • Anything by John Eldridge
  • The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkenson
  • The Left Behind Series by Tim Lahaye and Jerry Jenkins
  • The Shack by William Young
  • Anything by Arius (AD 250–336)
  • Anything by Joseph Smith
  • Anything by The Watchtower Society

  1. Mark I was just wondering why you had the book “The Shack” on the list as bad. I have heard good things and then I hear things saying it has dangerous theology. Could you explain your reason as it being bad?

  2. Adam, I won’t speak for Mark, but while it is a good story, The Shack confuses the Trinity to a point that has a lopsided view of Jesus.

  3. Why is John Eldridge bad? I liked his EPIC series. I didn’t get any hints of bad theology. Could address that Mark?
