Publishers Description If cults are so off base, why do they have so many members? Why are they attractive and what causes otherwise intelligent people to be interested in them? Are people who join cults stupid or disillusioned? And how can we avoid being tricked ourselves or keep our family and friends from being tricked? From Cult to Christ answers these questions and more. It tracks one man's journey from "discovering God" as a young child, to disillusionment with the organized church, to a cult. It tracks through the process of discovering truth through devastating loss, to exiting the cult and entering into the light of Christ's love through the touch of a loving friend. It's a real life journey with many twists and turns, triumphs and failures, and loss and restoration. And, finally, it guides the reader into understanding a little more about the new birth and how to know Jesus.

Reviews - What do customers think about From Cult to Christ?
Thought provoking read Sep 12, 2007
I found this book very thoughtful and profound. The author has a fresh and honest writing style that I really enjoyed. I read the first 10 chapters the first time I picked it up! The subject inspires you to reflect on your own life and does so without judgement. It is a heart warming story about a man and his journey to fulfillment in Christ. I highly recommend it.
Good read ... and personal. Aug 23, 2007
I found Craig Kuhn to be a good writer. He places things within a personal context that makes it that much more understandbable. His subject attempt is a hard one to grasp. He treats the cults with a basic respect in that he writes in a way that you can feel some of what he has gone through, but it is not a cult-bashing book. It is one that can allow the reader to enter a journey into how Jesus had brought him from one way, into another way.
