A Free online E-book

I was recently reading a blog where folks were discussing the hurts, pains, and abuses they had experienced during their recent church ‘take over’ event. One of the bloggers recommended a book (that is now online for free as an E-Book) that had helped her family as they tried to cope with the situation. The title of the book is: Recovering from Churches that Abuse by Ronald Enroth.

Surfing out to the website, I found that this book really is online and really is free. The Jacket of the book is also online and said by way of introduction:

“When Ronald Enroth wrote the best-selling book Churches That Abuse, he touched a nerve with many people who had experienced the pain inflicted by fringe churches and religious groups having authoritarian or other hurtful styles. In this book Enroth points the way toward spiritual and emotional healing for those who have come out of these groups.

This book will help the victims of spiritual abuse and their families cope with reentry into the Christian mainstream, and it will prove invaluable to counselors and pastors who are helping these people to find their way. Specific topics, presented through the narrative style of the book, include dispelling emotional confusion, restoring relationships, regaining independence and making other life adjustments, coping with disorientation, returning to reality, and renewing a wholesome personal relationship with God. “

If you want to read it or tell someone you know about it,
