Horton's Historical Mistakes.
The Michael Horton systematic theology is quite good. He goes most places I would go with theological method. Nevertheless, I think he should have had some better proof-reading. I'm detecting quite a few historical mistakes here. Actually some fairly obvious ones. For example, Origen did not believe in reincarnation (he specifically rejects it in his commentary on Matthew). Joachim of Fiore did not found the spiritual Francicans- so on and so on. I do not blame him, I blame the publishing industry for cutting back on copy-editing.
