The books we sell are written by writers who may be experts in their particular field of study, but we should remember that they are human and may not always be Biblically accurate. Some of their personal biases may show up from time to time. Sometimes things that are commonly believed are proven to be untrue later on. So please search the Scriptures daily, as the Apostle Paul commended the Bereans, to see if the things you read are true. Even though we have tried to find the best materials available, we do not necessarily endorse everything that is written. Take caution.
