Informed is a book about truth and error; in particular, it is about how thoughtful readers of the Bible can navigate the multiplicity of human teachings claiming to be biblical (Colossians 2:8).

As with the labyrinth of ancient mythology, finding our way can be confusing. Douglas Jacoby and Joseph Harris tackle the most common distortions and misunderstood teachings of the Bible.
