Cult Proofing Your Kids, Paul R. Martin, 1993. Whether or not you are comfortable with the “cult” word, this book includes a lot of information that is very helpful to people from the Assembly, especially the chapters on the healthy family, parenting tips, developing critical thinking, changing family dynamics and a “cult susceptibility” questionnaire. The chapter, “Pitfalls to Recovery,” has great information on the issues and stages of recovery. Dr. Martin, who founded and runs Wellspring Retreat, was himself a former member of a totalistic Christian group. The preface to the book is available online.

Good things from my WebsitesWhat's the difference between sheep and goats? Tract: ch39 What should we preach? This tract outlines what is the difference between "good preaching" and "bad preaching" from scriptural texts so that we have the authority of God on it. Sections:
What is biblical preaching?
Good Doctrine produces Piety
Bad doctrine and preaching
Preaching to Entertain
We cannot identify “good preaching” if we do not understand the purpose and vocation of the preacher... The very words of God are to be explained such that the will of God is understood by repeating these words, explaining them, and insisting on them as our obligation. The lack of use of explicit (read aloud, exposit, and illustrate) Scripture makes for bad preaching...It is understood that the majority of people hearing a sermon do not want to be rebuked, but this is exactly what “good preaching” does.Please support our tract ministry by donating on the tract website (see sidebar). Because of your donations we can offer these tracts online, and for free. Read the Tract: ch39 What should we preach?
