In Girl at the End of the World
, blogger Elizabeth Esther opens up about growing up in the cult like group called The Assembl
y. Raised in the tight knit group, brainwashed from an early age, Elizabeth feels there has to be more to faith and life than what she has been taught.
My heart broke for the young Elizabeth, as she struggled with the religion that her family taught her. It is a shame that people set themselves up as the authority on God and ruin people on God's love and mercy. While I don't agree with all of her conclusions, I can see how she came to them due to her experiences. (I still like Christian authors like C.S. Lewis, even if he is a male author)
For anyone who has suffered in a cult, this would be a good resource. Or, for those who don't realize that this sort of group is out there.
