I think that the right way to draw the line is according to the text, and
not the author.

Acts 17:11 « These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that
they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily
to find out whether these things were so. »

Crosswire's goal is to spread the Gospel. Does this text is really based on
the Bible; does it reference relevant verses, without bypass keys verses
against monophysite? Or is it based on other monophysite texts?   

I don't know this book, nor the author, nor this subject, but some of the
books I readed (some evangelical, some catholics, some jews), are mostly not
based on the Bible but on humain values, on cultures, on psychology; and
thoses books have a really low value to my eyes.
