Niles, OH, September 02, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Delivered From Deception is Rand Burkey’s debut book telling of his being kidnapped and deprogrammed from a cult, and the life he lived while being a cult member.
Why would a quiet Midwestern couple resort to hiring a team of people to kidnap and deprogram their oldest son from a group that seemed to teach “high moral values?” What signs did they see that caused them to take such actions? How could a person who was raised in a Christian home fall for a group that had at its core bizarre and dangerous beliefs? How is it that a seemingly normal young adult could buy into the idea that this group had the only truth and would do anything to protect it?
Alarming in its content, and frightening in its suggestion that anyone could be swayed to believe and defend to the death the ultimate truth, Delivered from Deception is the unvarnished look at how someone could be manipulated to be a terrorist for his or her beliefs, and how the truth will set men and women free.
“It is not a matter of if a person can be manipulated, it is a matter of what will capture a person’s attention that will allow someone or something to dominate his or her thinking. If it could happen to me, I believe it can happen to anyone. No one wants to be lead through a wilderness by a guide who has never been there. I believe my experiences and my investigations into how cults, abusive relationships, and the terrorist mindset work will give people insight as to how this can happen to anyone, and assist themselves or others in getting free.” - Rand Burkey
"Rand, just finished your book... got it in the mail and couldn't put it down! Most folks think that it would never happen to them, but they are wrong. Very well written... an awesome book." - Ronnie A.
Rand Burkey resides in northeast Ohio with his wife Carol. Having completed his bachelor’s degree, he continues to write, teach, and speak. He continues actively educating people how to reclaim their lives, assisting them in moving from victimization to victory.
