Ketcherside (Church of Christ) wrote Twisted Scriptures from a distinct perspective. He tries to blunt the separation and disciple of churches against dissident members. On the one hand, there is abuse by the churches on this matter. On the other hand, there is separation from false prophets and false teachers in the Bible. So his position (as a Church of Christ minister) is that we should all come together. The Church of Christ sees themselves as a “Restoration Movement” rejecting denominationalism, and returning to the true church of the New Testament.

Review from Bibletruths.org
This is a book of protest! Its author is deeply opposed to the division of God’s family over human opinions and deductions from the sacred scriptures. He holds that any use of the written word to defeat the purpose of the Living Word is abuse and misuse, and can only come by twisting the divine revelation.
In the book you will be treated to a candid and careful examination of passages which have been used to sanction, condone or justify fragmentation of the Body of Christ by religious partisans. The plea for unity of all believers in Christ upon the basis of trust in Him as the Son of God and the Lord of life runs like a thread throughout the volume. The exposition of the sacred scriptures will appeal to you by its sincerity and simplicity, as well as by its lack of sectarian manipulation. Biblical truths will become evident to your mind and God will be glorified in your heart.
