AUTHOR

Lattin, Don

SUMMARY

"Don Latin's Jesus Freaks is the story of a shocking pilgrimage of revenge that left two people dead and shed new light on The Family International, one of the most controversial religious movements to emerge from the spiritual turmoil of the sixties and seventies." "Some say The Family International - previously known as the Children of God - began with the best intentions. But their sexual and spiritual excesses soon forced them to go underground and follow a dark and dangerous path. Their charismatic leader, David "Moses" Berg, preached a radical critique of the piety and hypocrisy of mainstream Christianity. But Berg's message quickly devolved into its own web of lies. He lusted for power and unlimited access to female members of his flock - including young girls and teenagers - and became a drunken tyrant, setting up re-indoctrination camps around the world for rebellious teenagers under his control." "Thousands of children raised in The Family would defect and try to live normal lives, but the prophet's heir apparent, Ricky "Davidito" Rodriguez, was unable to either bear the excesses of the cult or fit into normal society. Sexually and emotionally abused as a child, Ricky left the fold and began a crusade to destroy the only family he ever knew, including a plot to kill his own mother."--BOOK JACKET.Lattin, Don is the author of 'Jesus Freaks A True Story of Murder and Madness on the Evangelical Edge', published 2007 under ISBN 9780061118043 and ISBN 0061118044.
