Chapter Twelve
The 15 R's of Recovery From Authoritarian Abuse

The culminating chapter of CHARISMATIC CAPTIVATION offers exhortation to the entrapped and enslaved. The keynote of the chapter is what Dr. Lambert terms "The 15 R's of Recovery from Authoritarian Abuse," which are steps he recommends victims of authoritarian abuse take in order to recover from the traumatic wounds and effects of the maltreatment and mistreatment to which they have been subjected.

The objective of the overtures proffered in this chapter is to restore in these victims of authoritarian abuse and exploitation the child-like faith and trust in God they once enjoyed, as well as to return them to their "first love," Jesus Himself, and the place of spiritual "rest" wherein they are once again malleable in the loving, thoroughly trustworthy hands of the Master.

In this, the culminating and perhaps paramount portion of the book, Dr. Lambert draws upon his experience of having ministered to many victims of "Charismatic captivation," extending on behalf of the Good Shepherd a hand of both love and liberation. Yet, he also offers the clear, concise, and specific counsel and direction reeling and confused victims need to get on the track of spiritual restoration and reconstruction of their lives.
