Most people believe that cult members are mentally unbalanced or are misfits who live in remote places, like the doomed devotees of Jum Jones and David Koresh. We take comfort in the fact that the influences of cults are far removed from our everyday lives.
NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH!
Over the past two decades, in the United States alone, an estimated TWENTY MILLION PEOPLE have joined cults. Today, THREEto FIVE THOUSAND cults are working to recruit new members. At any point in time, TWO-AND-A-HALF TO THREE MILLION Americans are cult members.
Often a cult is or can be disguised as:
--a Legitimate Business,
--a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization or Coalition,
--a Self-Help Group,
--a Church or Alternative Spiritual Group,
--a Psychotherapy Clinic,
--a College or University Club or Grant Funded Ministry,
--an Executive Leadership Training Program,
and Many other counterfeits serving as fronts for cults.
ANYONE -- No Matter the Age or Income Level -- could be susceptible to the covert and seductive nature nature of a cult. During periods of traumatic life changes, people are especially vulnerable to these masterful manipulators:
--a College Student away from home for the first time,
--a Grief-Stricken Widow in dire need of understanding and support,
--or even a Businessperson transferred from his or her employer to a new and unfamilar community.
The National Clearinghouse on Satanic Crime In America, in cooperation with the American Focus Publishing Company, highly recommend "CULTS IN OUR MIDST" for those seeking awareness and guidance on the topic of cults.
The title is the result of nearly 50 years of experience in this provocative field and serves as a definitive woirk on cults, and an expose that reveals what cults actually are and how they work.
The compelling text debunks commonly held myths and answers perplexing questions about cults, such as:
--Why not just leave the cult?
--What characteristics do cults have in common?
--Why are either the United States Marines or Alcoholica Anonymous considered cults?
--Who are the people most likely to join cults?
--Where can I go for help if someone I love is living in a cult?
--What actions can we take to prevent the spread of cult influence?
CULTS IN OUR MIDST is filled with practical strategies and suggestions for understanding the cult phenomenon and helping cult members to break free.
