Steps To Recovery From Bible Abuse
CHI RHO PRESS
Review By: Codi
I have always felt that when choosing a "name" for any project, one should strive to make a choice which is self-explanatory. Dr. Rembert Truluck has achieved that and much more. This book is, as stated, a resource for anyone who has experienced "Bible Abuse." It is also a resource for those wishing to end such abuses as in; parents, teachers, ministers, and just your everyday person. Formatted and referenced well for quick resource, "Steps To Recovery From Bible Abuse" also works quite well as front to back reading material.
Dr. Truluck challenges, enlightens, and even amuses while bringing a clearer understanding of how we are
abused. His interpretations are based on accurate translations and a good grasp of Biblical timing, history, and social dynamics. This is well thought out work, not just another attempt to offer "our" version of religious theories. At the center of this premise is that Jesus Christ came to heal sick religions. That certainly places a whole new view and interpretation of many of Christís teachings. This theory is backed up by on the mark examples. For instance, when Jesus ejects the vendors from the temple, that Christ was more likely to meet with a small group than large crowds.
Going into its second print, "Steps To Recovery From Bible Abuse" is strong material which I believe will be a foundation for religious reform. I must stress, this is not a painful read nor activity. Several of our "reviewers" where lets say less than anxious to tackle Dr. Truluckís work. Why? I believe intimidation and possible disappointment with other attempts to reconcile religious issues to be the core reasons. What Dr. Truluck has achieved is an understandable and believable answer to an old problem. Plainly stated, man is the problem here and our "interpretation" of his Word- the Bible. Especially those all too much heard "six examples." While we as a community seek change, we are not necessarily the first in line to make changes. The mere title of the book tells you that you will be changed by reading this material. An accepted fact, people are afraid of change. I found that change to be a very positive one. Refreshing, yes challenging, and I firmly believe long lasting.
I agree with Dr. Truluck that anyone who has suffered from "Bible Abuse" should take the time to read this material. The benefits are amazing. However, I have found this to be an excellent resource for those wishing to better understand the Christian religion as well. In all areas the resource strength of "Steps To Recovery From Bible Abuse" is unbridled. Whether you are looking for personal answers or seeking to establish a group to discuss and understand the issues, the answers are all here. The steps themselves take you through a healing and understanding process in logical and beneficial order. As Dr. Truluck establishes actual plans for group meetings. The lessons are rewarding for both individual study or with a group.
This will with a doubt be one of the most reached for books in my library. I have already found my self doing so not just to address "Bible Abuse" but in other areas. One of Dr. Truluckís statements had a profound effect. "Never underestimate the destructive power of ignorance." Easy to relate to when thinking about "their" ignorance. But what about our own and the damage we do to ourselves for buying into that ignorance? We must see that ignorance is correctable, and only a negative when we knowingly accept our ignorance for fact. Thank you Dr. Rembert Truluck, for your efforts in bringing this information not just to our community, but to the community of man. This book has the ability to help many within and outside of our community. Whether you seek answers for yourself, for another, or just general understanding, this is a must reference.
