Karl Kahler offers a devastating look into the origin and history of The Way International, interwoven with his personal (and sometimes hilarious) experience with the group. The result is one of the most devastating critiques of a fringe religion you will ever read. It probably helps that Kahler has no interest in leading his readers from one religion to another. To him, The Way is a cult -- not because it distorts Christianity, but because it's nutty, dishonest, controlling, abusive and hilariously idiosyncratic. Not for the faint of heart. Kahler is not afraid to use foul language here and there to tell the truth. If you're looking for a missionary tract, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a compelling tale of the rise and fall of a two-bit cult with an inflated sense of self-importance, this book is well worth the read.
