Multitudes of sincere and trusting believers are unaware victims of "Charismatic captivation," ensnared in the virtually invisible web of authoritarian abuse, psychological enslavement, and sordid economic exploitation by self-aggrandizing church leaders for their personal advancement and expansion of their private kingdoms. Through systematic indoctrination and brainwashing victims, have been duped into accepting as right and beneficial the oppressive predomination imposed upon them by unscrupulous, tyrannical church leaders. Charismatic Captivation trumpets forth to all ecclesiastical "Pharoahs" the Divine Demand to "Let My People Go!" Charismatic Captivation exposes the widespread authoritarian abuse that has been flourishing virtually unabated for decades since it was first infused into the very fabric, foundation, and functions of the within Charismatic/Neo-Pentecostal church during the "Discipleship/Sheperding Movement" of the early-1970s. It spotlights the salient signs and symptoms of authoritarian abuse, dissects the fallacious doctrines behind it, and offers victims clear, concise steps for recovery from the psychological trauma and restoration from the spiritual damage they've experienced. Through meticulous Biblical analysis Dr. Lambert demonstrates beyond any reasonable doubt that these hyper-authoritarian teachings and practices are completely antithetical to the spirit and letter of God's Word and therefore patently false and antichrist doctrines of demons. Written by a Charismatic minister from an insider's perspective, Charismatic Captivation is arguably the most comprehensive, but inarguably the most controversial, book written to date on the subject of Neo-Pentecostal authoritarian abuse. By a Charismatic, for Charismatics, without Charismatic-bashing. Though disdained by defiantly unrepentant perpetrators of Pentecostal predomination, Charismatic Captivation is a genuine prophetic word ordained by God to which He is now demanding obedience!
