It's been a while since I read this book. It's an expose of Bill Gothard and his organization. It is written by Christians, who don't throw away all of Christendom because of the idiocies of Mr. Gothard. This book helped me to know where some of my 'net friend were coming from when they talked about "covering" and "chain of authority".
A chilling and well documented commentary on the ministry of Bill Gothard. If you have been considering becoming involved in Gothard's Institute of Basic Life Principles, read this book first. Then you can decide while fully informed.
