Has anyone read Seductive Poison: A Jonestown Survivor's Story of Life and Death in the Peoples Temple by Deborah Layton? Amazon has a feature which I never tried before - it lets you seach the book for certain words. "Truth" and "worldly" both were used and had excerpts shown. I'll probably order it soon and let ya know what I think of it.
Thanks so much. I'll definitely get a copy now. I was just thinking about this book recently. So much to read....so little time.
Beat me to this one: Seductive Poison (on the Jim Jones cult):
Escape (on the FLDS):
Switch, there is a thread here by Jimmie Page that has a lot of book recomendations in it also.
I couldn't link it here, but it's called "Just got my copy of "C of C".
I bumped it up for you.
I haven't been around for a while, but like popping in every now and then to see if I've missed any new light etc ;)
I read this book not long ago and found it compelling read with many similarities, it's about growing up in the Children of God Sect.
