Republisher's note: This book is about an organized religion known
as the Boston Church of Christ / Boston-Movement / Discipling
Movement / God's Movement / The Movement / God's Kingdom /
International Churches of Christ (1992) (ICoC or ICC) and the Los
Angeles Church of Christ. On college campuses, numerous other aliases
Author-researcher Yeakley was hired by Thomas 'Kip' McKean, the leader (a.k.a. 'God's Man', 'Prophet', and 'World Evangelist') of the organization, to find out whether or not the organization is a dangerous, neo-authoritarian sect--as critics claimed.** Yeakley conducted 900 MBTI tests on members of the sect to find out if the critics were right or wrong.
If you are not inclined to read the whole book, Chapters 1, 2, and 8 probably contain enough information to understand basically how one-over-one discipling functions and where it originated.
**During the World Leadership Conference In Los Angeles (11-15 August 1993)--Mr. McKean said that he is:
"...God's Man leading God's Movement..." .........In 1994, in Manilla, Mr. McKean said:
..."I believe I am a prophet."...
