 Our Description


Richard M. Hogan


"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"--George Santayana


Nowhere is this more true than in matters of faith and religion. And nowhere are the errors of the past more elusive than in heresies. In order that we not be caught unawares in a web of false teaching, Father Richard Hogan presents a non-technical history of false teachings from the time of the Ascension to the present.


Using the Creed as a basis, this urgently needed book:

  • Clearly explains the difference between heresy and schism.
  • Thoroughly covers all major and minor heresies.
  • Serves as a quick reference for teachers, students, and historians.


A "must-have" for anyone serious about their Faith, Dissent from the Creed is a vital resource for the propagation of the Faith.
