really good  Jan 23, 2007
this is a really good book on a hard subject. I also recommend "when bad christians happen to good people."
 
Stop the abuse  Jan 5, 2007
Spiritual abuse is a rising trend among churches. This book will give you the knowledge on whether or not you are in a mentally, emotionally and/or oppressive church.
 
Will set you free from a lot of junk.  Dec 31, 2006
No, you're not crazy. The system is crazy. This will give you the bible-based knowledge and courage to get out and get free!
 
Life is an exercise in forgiveness...  Mar 11, 2006
A must read for anyone who attends church! This book is gently written and is therefore perfectly suited toward we who are hurting and/or have been abused in church or church settings. It will give you courage to heal and clear your thinking towards the One who heals.
 
What an amazing book--straightforward and upfront!!  Jan 11, 2006
"The Subtle Power of Spiritual Abuse" confronts in an open and honest way--and deals with in a clear and straightforward way--issues that too many in the Christian community too often refuse to admit and face up to and deal with because these serious issues are not clean and pretty and tidy--they're dirty and messy and embarrassing; and it takes time and much effort to make healthy changes. It takes a lot of courage for anyone to admit to the truth (and uncover the truth) of what goes on "behind closed doors" in some churches (and families). Until these serious issues are first acknowledged, nothing ever changes or has the opportunity to make the necessary healthy changes. It takes integrity and courage and unconditional love to take a stand. David Johnson and Jeff VanVonderen have written a tremendously courageous book. This book does not attack--it simply demonstrates the love and honor these men have for God and His principles and it demonstrates the courage these men have in standing up for those Biblical principles. This book, together with Mr. VanVonderen's other two books, "Tired of Trying to Measure Up" and "Families Where Grace Is In Place" are excellent resources for those who have been wounded by other Christians to receive hope and encouragement and the reassurance that not all Christians and not all churches are harmful--that emotional and spiritual healing can come about and the wounded can eventually be able to move on in life. We are encouraged to use wisdom and discernment and common sense. I recommend these books highly. Consider buying extra copies to give out to loved ones or friends who you know are hurting deeply because they've been wounded by the very people they trusted to love and care about them.
