Fundamental Seduction: The Jack Hyles Case
Expose of a prominent Baptist preacher with church membership over 100,000. This is the book Baptists have whispered about & leaders have advised laity not to read. From one large Minnesota baptist association's journal (North Star Baptist): "The substance of the material revealed is shocking. While not recommended for the average layman, every pastor should be aware of its contents." Chapters deal with the idolatrous Jim Jones - like mindset in the membership, allegations of adultery, placement of a book business owned by the pastor under the church "tax-free" umbrella, while he continued to exercise control & use of the income. Witnesses testify. One witness tells of long intimate phone conversations the pastor often had with her mother, a secretary to the pastor, always ending with a softly whispered "I love you" from her mother. Glover is a private attorney & a deputy prosecutor for the state of Indiana. The book is like a trip into the court room. Evidence is presented, then examined by the lawyer & the reader. The pastor's defense of himself against the charges are reprinted in an appendix.
