Dangerous leaders - some even in mainstream chruches - are twisting the scriptures to coerce their members into subordination. In the process, once-promising lives can become mired in a distorted religious reality that supresses human freedom and destroys lives.

Give this self-help guide to anyone trapped in an abusive, unhealthy group. It can restore critical thinking, and bring loved ones back from what may seem like an impossible situation. Chrnalogar's powerful book has - and will continue to - set lives free.

The author reveals the subtle control techniques that manipulate and intimidate followers. Mary Alice identifies the very persuasive and deceptive practices of pwerful groups, and then arms the reader with the tools to overcome them.

17 comprehensive chapters show the way, along with an epilogue and appendices that include further resources.

From the Back Cover:

For Someone Else If You're Concerned. For Yourself If You've Ever Wondered.

You joined your church because of its intensity for God. Like no other place, it's helped you discover the meaning of obedience. Of teachableness. Of death to self. If there's one problem, it's the confusion that sometimes comes from your own carnal thinking. But God has given you leaders who can lovingly correct a doubting, independent spirit and help you choose God's best for your life.

How can you go wrong with a church like that? Easily. What you've just read actually fits the profile of many abusive churches. Twisted Scriptures reveals in depth how the Bible can be distorted in ways that rob you of the liberty Jesus died to give you. You might be shocked at what you discover.

This book uncovers the subtle but powerful techniques by which, in the name of truth, controlling leaders manipulate and intimidate countless believers. It also supplies tools for overcoming persuasive, deceptive teachings and practices.

Thousands of Christians have already moved from struggle to true freedom and hope through Twisted Scriptures. If you truly want to grow in everything God made you to be, you owe it to yourself to read this book.
