Item description for Out of the Cults and Into the Church: Understanding and Encouraging Ex-Cultists by Janis Hutchinson...

There are plenty of books that tell you what a particular cult believes. "Out Of The Cults And Into The Church" shows you the turmoil and adjustments that former cult members experience as they grow in Christian faith and come to terms with bilical truth. Drawing upon the composite experiences of former cult members from Mormonism, the Unification Church, Hare Krishnas, and her own experience, Janis Hutchinson provides a one-of-a-kind counseling tool for pastors, counselors, and friends seeking to understand and help both former cult members and active cult members who are "investigating" evangelical Christianity. "Out Of The Cults And Into The Church" answers the difficult questions faced by all who have left cults and those who counsel them.

Publishers Description
A one-of-a-kind counseling tool that discusses the special challenges and emotions faced by former cultists.

Reviews - What do customers think about Out of the Cults and Into the Church: Understanding and Encouraging Ex-Cultists?

Too much dialogue  Oct 8, 2007
This book was alright, alot of dialogue between the author and other characters makes it hard to read. Could have been written alot better, more like a textbook would have made it easier and more effective.
Informative and Accurate  Jan 4, 2003
This book addresses the common problems encountered by individuals who are coming out of cults, or controlling or abusive groups, looking for a more healthy belief system, and how the church can reach out and minister to them. Those exiting such groups go through predictable stages of grieving as they assess their losses--their friends and sometimes their family, their identity, their sense of purpose, their understanding of everything that is right and true, and in fact their entire belief system, all of which can leave deep psychological wounds. Janis Hutchison addresses these losses and their effects in chapters on understanding the trauma and understanding cult losses. The author also describes the process of coming to grips with and moving beyond the deception which the former member has experienced, a process which she calls divorcing deadly doctrines. Hutchison further addresses the steps necessary to make the transition from false teaching to the truth of the gospel of grace. Highly recommended.
Gain sympathy for the adjustments an ex-cultist must make  Feb 17, 2002
Janis Hutchinson has done Christians and ex-cultists all a favor in describing the lengthy adjustments to life and Christianity after leaving a cult--invaluable information for pastors and evangelists.

Written with empathy (Hutchinson is a former Mormon), she helps Christians understand why it takes so long to leave a cult behind and fully embrace Christianity. She also gives suggestions at the end of every chapter in supporting and mentoring former cult members on their way out. (Hutchinson highly recommends support groups.)

Yes, the word "cult" may be provocative, but that is the only detraction I might find in this much-needed volume.

Foundation of Sand  Jan 26, 2002
The term "cult," in the sense that it is used by Protestant fundamentalists, conveys no defensible, definable meaning. It is merely a pejorative word, explosive and with four letters.

Janis Hutchinson never offers a satisfying, historically justifiable definiton of the word that lies at the absolute heart of her book, and it's all downhill from there. This book has the appearance of cogency, but not the substance.
