The truth will make you free 25 Feb 2004
By Pamela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book spoke volumes to me from the very beginning, from the words, "abuse is the misuse of power" to the chapter on forgiveness. If anyone has ever been spiritually hurt by misused power, this book is very healing. Mr. Dupont points out that the power of Jesus had nothing to do with ego and everything to do with love. When ego takes the place of love, that ego can cause hurt beyond belief. One woman in this book had suffered post traumatic stress disorder because of someone's ego. She wasn't raped, or physically harmed, but she was hurt by those who unwittingly and wrongfully represented the body of Christ. BUT there is hope in this book in reminding us all to keep our eyes on Him.

easy to understand 7 May 2007
By K.Koglin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was great!!! Purely scriptural and I only disagreed once or twice on his applications (but hey! we never agree 100% on everything). But his scripture examples lead you to examine your own life too! He was not opinionated to the point of turning me away from the scripture.

Toxic Churches: some what helpful 15 Aug 2008
By Michael Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased Pastor Dupont's book because I've been through some abusive situations in the Christian community over the years. "Toxic Churches" is good at explaining some of the problems, but it doesn't do much to help folks who've been hurt to heal.

great book for those who are hurting 3 Sep 2008
By 4fabfelines - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
this book helped me in the sense of understanding some of the things going on in my own church and identifying those things as NOT GOD.
Thank goodness the old Pastor left and with it his abuse.
The healing has begun, and this book and others has really helped along the way.

It didn't cure me, but it helped me understand how bad things happen at churches in a more loving way. We're all human.
