This book was an amazing read for me. I can see the author has a great drive and truly wants to help people see the truth and bring the horrible evil to light. Half way through I found myself shaking just because it brought back terrible memories and triggers that my husband and I have gone through. We were also brought up in the extreme IFB culture. I'm greatful to be out and living in freedom with God. Thank you Jocelyn Zichterman for writing this amazing book!!!!

Coming from the IFB culture,I will say this book was spot on in many ways.If you grew up in this culture this book may be triggering to you. To see our lingo and way of life in print is somewhat shocking but it needed to be done. I couldnt put it down! I commend the author for her courage and faith. I hope she will continue to speak for those who have no voice.

Very good book. All of the IFB Cult information is true. Thank you for writing this book and letting people that were not brought up in a cult like this know what it was like. Bless you!

Anyone in a cult like the IFB should get immediate mental help. The one star reviewers of this book are unChristian and completely sick. You are satanic abusers and should not be alowed to have children.

I read this book in one day. I am a member of an Independent Fundamental Baptist church, and was curious to see her perspective. The atrocities that this lady experienced at the hands of IFB 'Christians" are absolutely terrible. There is no excuse for abuse like this. Ever. I was heartbroken for this lady as she reiterated her horrendous experiences with people who deemed themselves 'men of God.' However, these fake Christians are not indicative of what God is really like. They are not proper examples of anything but perverted, power-hungry bullies. As a member of a Biblical IFB church, I am blessed to not have experienced the cruelties that Jocelyn did. My heart breaks for her because she never really discussed her own personal relationship with Jesus. The only thing her childhood and college experiences with the church did for her was hammer her down with rules and regulations. The love and grace of Jesus was sadly omitted from her church influences, and all that remained in her psyche from them was oppression, judgment, and hatred. For her to say that God exists, and that He or She is always there at the end of her book goes to show how desperately lost she is and in need of an encounter with the true Jesus of the Bible. There is no excuse for the way that she was treated. And there is no remedy for her brokenness aside from Christ. I will definitely keep this lady in my prayers. The IFB isn't the one 'true church' as she was so mistakenly taught as a child. Regardless of music, dress, or propriety standards, anyone who will repent and put their faith in Jesus alone as Savior is guaranteed a home in heaven. I hope that she can find solace in Him and that this book is a stepping stone in her process of recovery and eventual true relationship with the God who made her and loves her so dearly.

Did anyone bother to check Jocelyn's facts before accepting her story at face value? Jocelyn is a liar. The story is so "captivating" because she has embellished and axaggerated the few truths you might be fortunate enough to stumble upon.
