Ungodly Fear : Fundamentalist Christianity and the Abuse of Power
In this disturbing and compelling new book, Stephen Parsons uses real-life stories to highlight the dangers that exist ijn the modern Church, and sounds the alarm for any church or individual who may be susceptible to perpetrating or falling victim to abusive practices or behavior. These harrowing stories include a vulnerable couple persuaded to part with their life savings for a church; a woman raped by her minister, who then had to face denial and rejection; a woman demonized for resisting a church's obsession with demons; a homosexual whose integrity as an individual was attacked; and a woman damaged by inappropriate "healing." Parsons ends his bold analysis by affirming the potential for abuse-free Christianity and healthy church life.
