Someone on a closed thread asked for info on Bill Gothard. There is a good book out on him by Don Vienot of Midwest Christian Outreach. Vienot has spent many years talking to Gothard and to Gothard's assistants to try to understand Gothard's rationale on some of his stranger teachings. Anyway, go to this website where you can order the book: http://www.midwestoutreach.org/ You can email and ask about the book, or write or call. All the info is on the home page. On the menu at right, you can click on "Research on Bill Gothard" and a page will come up with more info. I really think this is the best source I know of on Gothard. It is an evenhanded and fair evaluation.
