Helpful Resources

I haven’t read everything on the following list, so I’m not personally recommending all of them. I just know they’ve been helpful to others who are recovering from spiritual abuse:


  • The Subtle Power of Spiritual Abuse, David Johnson and Jeff VanVonderen
  • Quivering Daughters, Hilary McFarland
  • Transforming Grace, Jerry Bridges
  • Boundaries, Henry Cloud and John Townsend
  • Adventures in Churchland, Dan Kimball
  • Blue Like Jazz, Don Miller
  • I Tried Until I Almost Died, Sandra McCollom
  • Spoken For, Robin Jones Gunn and Alyssa Bethke
  • Jesus > Religion, Jefferson Bethke
  • The Cry of the Soul and other books by Dan Allender
  • Walking with God through Pain and Suffering, Tim Keller
  • A Loving Life, Paul Miller
  • Spiritual Whitespace, Bonnie Gray
  • For the Love, Jen Hatmaker
  • Girl at the End of the World, Elizabeth Esther


  • When Sparrows Fall, Meg Moseley
  • The Chosen and My Name is Asher Lev, Chaim Potok
  • Ted Dekker (for a perspective on grace)
  • Sensible Shoes, Sharon Garlough Brown
  • Redeeming Love, Francine Rivers
  • The Shack, Wm Paul Young
  • The Gift of Sarah Barker, Jane Yolen

I have a very short list of shows/movies that can help also; I’d like more. Email any suggestions to me!

For those working through the teachings of Bill Gothard, Recovering Grace is the place to start.

For those coming out of the Christian fundamentalist world in general, Stuff Fundies Like is a therapeutic read.
