Book Review: The Shadow of The Hand of God

Posted by on Nov 11, 2012 in The Christian Church | 0 comments

The Shadow of The Hand of God is a fascinating look into the cult like mentality of the far right and the churches it controls, mainly Independent Fundamentalist, Southern Baptist and  far right Evangelical churches.  The author explains the journey the churches she describes have taken from moderate and Christ Like to extreme and abusive.  She describes the insidious mental, emotional and spiritual abuse through heart breaking autobiographical memoirs and occasionally with fictionalized stories of her life.  It is a hard book to read due to the emotional depths but as a story of one person’s journey through the fall of certain churches away from the true heart of their faith, through rejection of that faith entirely and then back to a real relationship with Christ.  It brought me to tears more than once.
