View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Most people would remember the Waco, Texas debacle with David Koresh and the Branch Davidian. I was a member of the group from which Koresh got his message. This cultic group was started in 1930 by Victor Taso Houteff, a Bulgarian who migrated to the USA. Houteff is the founding Prophet of the group. There are several branches of this group still in operation in the USA and around the world. Like Koresh, I believed that I was a Jew and that we would survive a universal slaughter, after which we would be miraculously transported to present-day Jerusalem. While in Palestine we would be Kings and Queens who would be worshipped by all none-Jews. My mother and sisters and their husbands are still members of a surviving group, headquartered in Waco, Texas. This book deals with the beliefs and teaching of the Shepherd s Rod movement. In the book I share my story of how I became a member of the group and how my wife and I were finally able to break free. I deal with the brainwashing process the individual goes through in order to remain a member. The intention of this book is for you to better understand why the Rod members are willing to die for their belief and why another Waco, Texas scenario is always possible among cults.

About the Author:

Pastor WP Jeffrey was born in Georgetown, Guyana. In his teen years he migrated to Barbados, WI, where he met and married his wife Celia. They have two daughters; Tirshatha 18, and Shaneika 13. Pastor Jeffrey attended Southern Caribbean University in Trinidad. He moved to the USA and graduated from the Oakwood University, Huntsville, AL, before heading to Andrews University, Berrien Springs, MI, to begin his Masters Degree. In 2004 he founded the Practical Christianity Ministry (PCM). The PCM is one of the most comprehensive prison ministry programs in the USA. Participation in the program begins anywhere from three months to one year before the individual leaves the penitentiary. Upon release PCM provides the participant with housing, a job, access to GED or High School Diploma classes, a place to worship and mentorship. Pastor Jeffrey travels extensively setting up reentry programs and lecturing on the subject of recidivism and offender rehabilitation. As an ex-offender himself, Pastor Jeffrey has a deep insight into both the needs and possibilities of the ex-offender. He has created a lecture series, which has been adopted by the Indiana Department Of Corrections. The lecture series titled Practical Talk is an amalgamation of biblical precepts. It also includes notions from experts like Emmanuel Kant, Thomas Galbraith, Zig Ziegler, Steven Glenn, Steven Covey, etc. Pastor Jeffrey likes to tell the participants that the lectures are simply his modus operandi, which if copied will bring them success too. Pastor Jeffrey is also a general contractor, executive sales and marketing expert, and professional photographer. All the proceeds of Pastor Jeffrey s books, talents and services, go to supporting the Practical Christianity Ministries and its work among those less fortunate than us.
