Houston, TX, March 20, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Heresy by Keith Swainson. The author's most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the religion and Christian theology category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Heresy is also available in a 6 x 9 hardback edition with jacket. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/heresy was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
In this provocative, exhaustively researched, unprecedented book, Keith Swainson takes readers through a series of clear, self-evident conclusions which, when added to one another, form the structure for an understanding of the Bible that will revolutionize how to think about Jesus and Scripture. Heresy takes as its basis the idea that Jesus was truly God in the flesh. Swainson looks at the three genetically interrelated monotheistic religions – Islam, Judaism, and Christianity – and asks: Does the Qur’an hint at Jesus being something more than a mere prophet, or even a great messenger? Does an honest reading of Jewish texts hint at the possibility of God coming in the flesh? Does the Christian faith really treat Jesus as God in the flesh, or does it subject Him to constraints meant for men?
Answering these and other questions, Swainson shows us that the seeming contradictions throughout the Bible are confusing only if Jesus is being regarded as a man, not as God. Swainson blows away the dust and cobwebs of millennia of interpretations from a Church full of preconceived notions, and shows that the words and deeds of Jesus, as God in the flesh, preach against a Second Coming.
Heresy concludes that the kingdom of God Jesus preached about is fully here and now in the lives of believers throughout the world, and that it cannot be more fully realized than it already is. If the kingdom of God is here and now…what does that mean to each person as a believer?
Powerful, thought-provoking, and revolutionary, Heresy will take one’s life, and one’s faith, in a direction one never imagined possible.
358 pages in length, Heresy is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the religion and Christian theology category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Heresy meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $15.95 and $29.95 for the paperback and hardback editions, respectively.
