Scripture Twisting: 20 Ways the Cults Misread the Bible - How often have you encountered some bizarre doctrine only to be stunned to hear a Bible verse quoted to support it? With new religious cults springing up almost daily and old ones growing rapidly, this is more and more common. How are they seemingly able to twist Scripture to mean something orthodox Christians have never believed it to mean in 2000 years? James Sire has isolated twenty separate kinds of reading errors which are characteristically made by cultists as they interpret the Bible. He covers the full range from simple misquotation to complex argumentation which links one slightly eccentric interpretation to another, mixes in a few orthodox readings and ends with a conclusion totally foreign to the biblical world view. Sire also handles twisted trans- lation, overspecification, virtue by association, ignoring the context and others. A book to help us all become better readers of the Scriptures. Dr. James W. Sire , formerly associate professor of English at Northern Illinois University, is senior editor of InterVarsity Press and a frequent guest lecturer at colleges and universities. He is also the author of "Shirley MacLaine and the New Age Movement", "How to Read Slowly", and "Scripture Twisting".
