Sex Cult Nun: Breaking Away from the Children of God, a Wild, Radical Religious Cult

We rated this book:


Sex Cult Nun by Faith Jones captured her story growing up as the granddaughter of David Berg, the founder and leader of the Children of God cult that spanned around the globe and indoctrinated followers with the messages of end-times prophecies and free love. Thousands looked to David as the prophet who would lead them through the end-times. David spoon-fed his followers the doctrine that they were chosen to be the living examples of God’s love. He accomplished this task via religious abuse coupled with the exploitation of minors and women.

Author Jones bravely told the harrowing story of her abuse within the inner circle of the Children of God cult and how she and the other children were forbidden to attend school, had little to non-existent medical care, and were forbade to speak to anyone outside of their cultic world.

Jones not only shined a marvelous light on the criminally destructive nature of religious cults and how the effects of abuse and mind control permeated every aspect of the followers’ lives. Sex Cult Nun also provides a narrative of triumph that one could escape an egregious cult and create an authentic life free from abuse. As Faith Jones has done for herself, may her life story be a testament to the power of determination and the quest for freedom at all costs.
