This book helps expose the evils of many so-called "religious" groups that use brain-washing tactics to deceive their followers into becoming fanatics. The book is an excellent expos of the tactics used, as well as basic insight into the true, and dangerous nature of many cults. In an era of religious tolerance for everything, it seems, except Christianity, books like this are invaluable in pointing out that not all religions are so "holy".
This is the shocking true story of the young victims of America's religious cults - by the man who has penetrated their minds. His enemies are the Children of God, Hare Krishna, Brother Julius, Sun Myung Moon and the Unification Church, and the Alamo Foundation. He knows their philosophies, their propaganda methods, their indoctrination techniques, and how to break their powerful hold on their captives. His mission is to wrest their victims free. "As exciting as any thriller ... a moral adventure story with just enough danger and scary charisma on both sides of the question to make one burn with outrage and suspense." - Chicago Tribune Book Review
