From Cult to Christ

封面
Xulon Press, 2007 - 264 頁
If cults are so off base, why do they have so many members? Why are they attractive and what causes otherwise intelligent people to be interested in them? Are people who join cults stupid or disillusioned? And how can we avoid being tricked ourselves or keep our family and friends from being tricked? From Cult to Christ answers these questions and more. It tracks one man's journey from "discovering God" as a young child, to disillusionment with the organized church, to a cult. It tracks through the process of discovering truth through devastating loss, to exiting the cult and entering into the light of Christ's love through the touch of a loving friend. It's a real life journey with many twists and turns, triumphs and failures, and loss and restoration. And, finally, it guides the reader into understanding a little more about the new birth and how to know Jesus. Craig has been a Christ-follower for several years and has served in many church leadership positions. These include being a founding elder for a new church, and being a ministry director and lay pastor for Men's Ministry and Mid-High Ministry. He co-founded a non-profit ministry in the Salem area to serve the local churches. He also has experience in cults. His degree is in communications from the University of Oregon with graduate work in organizational communications at Portland State University. He is a writer, speaker, workshop leader, small group facilitator and works for state government in program management and health care policy and program design. He is also the Mid-High Ministry Director for New Harvest church in Salem, Oregon. He and his family, wife Janey and two boys, Benjamin and Caleb, live in Keizer, Oregon.
