* Living in the Children of God, Van Zandt
At the height of the religious ferment of the 1970s, David Van Zandt studied firsthand the most vilified of the new radical religious movements--the Children of God, or the Family of Love. First feigning membership and later gaining the permission of the Family, the author lived full-time in COG colonies in England and the Netherlands. From that experience, he has produced an informed, insightful, and humane report on how COG members function in what seems at first to be a completely bizarre setting. This book is a great read for anyone as it provides interesting insight into one of the most infamous and mysterious groups. Condition is immaculate with almost no sign of use.
