Although the four books in the series Brothers, Hear Our Defense were written to correct many theological, factual, and historical errors in an article by Norman Geisler and Ron Rhodes criticizing the teaching of Witness Lee, they also present many important matters of truth concerning the Bible, the significance of the incarnation of Christ, the nature of God, and other subjects.
