The Art of Memoir eEligions can cause serious harm when leadersxercise power over others I reserve a single star for books that are fundamentally misleading AND poorly written This book is only the latter It is heavy on The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life exemplary stories and light on analysis leading to application This improves towards thend As the reader the best I get is the application of category labels from psychological science not a bad thing but very very little xamination of the dynamics that underlie those labels I realize the author a bad thing but very very little xamination of the dynamics that underlie those labels I realize the author likely attempting to appeal to a readership that isn t interested in learning social psychology but that leaves the reader in the position of taking the author s word for it which seems likely to produce anxious readers who hear the warning sound but won t produce discerning readers how can weigh the strengths and weakness of their own assemblies wiselyThe warning of the book constantly implied and but rarely stated xplicitly is that God s people s discernment rests on mutual accountability under the Word of God Every xample in the book reveals a leader who is deceived by

#learn about alas #about Alas two pages devoted to them I did learn a lot though about movements I didn t ven know xisted I used this book as a secondary source for a capstone paper It was sufficient for that task but not awesome Although the case studies are somewhat interesting I would have liked to read a bit about the psychological and sociological aspects of spiritual abuse without having to dig through personal accounts that were irrelevant to my research In short the content is okay but the format sucks This was recommended to me and I was hesitant to read it but I m so glad I did I feel like I ve been validated in many ways It s a bit dated and weak on how to help people who are coming out of a spiritually abusive church definitely jaw dropping awful stories about abuse in the church I felt uncomfortable with how many stories since it felt like I was reading tales of abuse rather then how to help people who were abused This is a great book if you are interested in hearing stories about cultoccult victims However this book is a bit outdated and not what I xpected it to be about based off of the title Specifically where it states help for those hurt by It isn t a helpful book as far as recovery goes but so helps you identify common red flags within these groups One of my favorite.
