    schema:reviewBody ""In this study, Joe E. Morris draws parallels between the basic tenets and practices of Fundamentalism and ancient Christian Gnosticism. Drawing on extensive research and careful analysis, Morris aligns the two religious phenomena point by point, tenet by tenet, noting their differences as well as similarities. Along the way, he provides insights into the key hermeneutic of Fundamentalism - inerrancy and Scripture - highlighting the multiple problems with the positions of literal and inerrant interpretation, their impracticality and unfeasibility, and their contradiction with their own conservative doctrine - namely, the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. This book dramatically recasts our understanding of the history of Christianity and gives important context to modern-day religious debates."--Jacket." ;
