    1. M. Hickmon on said:

      In Recovering Agency, Luna Lindsey deftly exposes every con in the abusive clergyman s playbook, throwing wide the curtains, blowing away the smoke, and exposing the mirrors and levers that underlie an ancient system of psychological coercion And although the word Mormon appears on the cover, this information is equally relevant and useful to ex Pentecostals, Catholics and Baptists Lindsey deals with her subject in impressive depth every factual assertion is meticulously footnoted, and her claim [...]

      I m not a very religious person, and I ve always believed that religion and politics are the two main evils of this world, but don t get me wrong when I say this because it s not religious belief I have a problem with, it is the abuse of power by the flesh and blood prophets that makes it a dangerous weapon Lindsey s book just solidifies by ideas.This book was an eye opening, though provoking, and quite terrifying take on how religion, along with a few other factors in society can make us the vi [...]

      I came close to starting again from the beginning once I d finished I did flip thru and re read some passages I imagine I will keep this volume to hand for the next little while and dip back into it regularly as I digest the whole I left the LDS church as a fairly young adult at 17, so I had in some ways fewer ritual ties to cut than the author But my family has been Mormon for as long as Mormonism has existed, so the meat of what she describes is definitely my cultural inheritance, and resonate [...]

      Very well researched book The author includes descriptions, explanations, and personal experiences along with footnotes regarding the techniques cults use to attract people to them or any association which uses recruitment to add members to its rosters and then to quietly yet fully envelop them inside the high walls of the organization She provides armor tactics to protect ourselves with in the future and urges the formerly duped to forgive themselves for falling for a carefully constructed comb [...]

      Very well researched and logically laid out Nothing in it was new to me but someone who has not critically examined the LDS church or who has not been a member might be very surprised by a lot of the information It got a bit long but it was a thorough examination of Mormonism and cult research.

    6. Vance Shaw on said:

      When you meet those nice young men on bicycles Well written, but sort of rambles on in places This is good information to know about the characteristics of cults and how to avoid them, or free yourself from one Although this book focuses on Mormonism, not all cults are all religious Some are self help groups, some are political and some are multi level marketing schemes However they all have similar characteristics and use similar manipulative techniques.

    7. Jackie on said:

      The only thing upsetting about this book, besides the well researched content about Cultish Mormonism, is the presentation of the audio book It is read by a male, B.J Harrison That does not fit well with the author s female voice, Luna Lindsey, as used in the first person singular, I, throughout the reading.
