AUTHOR

Tabor, James D., Gallagher, Eugene V.

SUMMARY

"The label "cult" can become a license to kill. . . . A courageous religious scholar, James Tabor, understanding what was at stake, tried valiantly to prevent the tragedy at Waco. Persevering in its wake, he and Eugene Gallagher thoroughly investigated the background, participants, and events leading to the destruction of the Mount Carmel Church and its members. Their findings are presented in this critically important book."--Ramsey Clark, former Attorney General "Here, at last, is a glimpse of 'the other side' of the tragic confrontation. . . . The authors offer an alternative to the common wisdom about Waco as well as a critique of the anti-cult ideology that helped misdefine the situation and bring about its fateful--and fatal--results."--Dean M. Kelley, Counselor on Religious Liberty, National Council of Churches "For public debate on a serious issue facing our society, this book deserves wide and sober reading."--John R. Hall, author ofGone From the Promised Land: Jonestown as American Cultural HistoryTabor, James D. is the author of 'Why Waco? Cults and the Battle for Religious Freedom in America' with ISBN 9780520201866 and ISBN 0520201868.
