John Weldon

John Weldon is Christian apologist.

He has authored and co-authored over 75 books, including Protestants and Catholics: Do They Now Agree?Off-site Link , The Facts of the Mormon ChurchOff-site Link , the Encyclopedia of New Age BeliefsOff-site Link and the Encyclopedia of Cults & New ReligionsOff-site Link.

The latter became to subject of a rather silly lawsuit filed by 'The Local Church' -- a cult of Christianity -- which objected to its inclusion in the Encyclopedia.

In their lawsuit, The Local Church claimed that the Encyclopedia of Cults and New Religions accused the movement of criminal and immoral conduct. The courts found that this was not the case.

The local Church eventually lost its six-year, $136 million legal battle against Harvest House Publishers and authors John Ankerberg and John Weldon when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear its appeal of a lower court decision.

It was not the first time the Local Church used legal means to stifle free speech by critics of their movement.

John Weldon is affiliated with The Ankerberg Theological Research Institute
