I was wondering if anyone could recommened some good books to compliment what I'm already reading.
Right now, of course I'm reading about Spiritual Abuse and Churches that abuse.
I would love to read some biographies, historical non-fiction or fiction books along with these.
Any ideas? -simka Thanks!!!:)

Good call Hope! I was going to say that one too, but I didn't want to hog the suggestions.
Also, when you are less raw, "Visitation" by Frank Peretti, and another good one by Francine Rivers is "And The Shofar Blew".
Ok, so I'm a hog....*SNORT*

Visitation is creepy. Good, but creepy. It's definately a good novel about strange spiritual abuse. :eek:
I've always been a Perretti fan. Sometimes they've given me nightmares, though. :D

I just finished "Monster" by Perretti, what a wild ride, you have to really stick with it but even the technical aspects are good for a ponder! Once it starts it's roller coaster descent you can't put it down. I too am a Francine Rivers fan and I know there are more of hers to read out there but you can't beat Redeeming Love and Atonement Child.
As for movies, I just watched The Last Sin Eater which was written by Ms. Rivers and produced and directed by Michael Landon's son. It's a great evening by the fire although it's hard to watch some parts it's very rewarding!
Bodie Thoene is another fav author with The Zion Chronicles and others. You will learn much about the history of Israel becoming a state that is never told in the mainstream media.
