Expertise

I can answer questions about the history and beliefs of many cults, or alternative religions. I was listed in the Directory of Cult Research Organziations. I have answered questions on the Baha'i Faith, Worldwide Church of God (now Grace Communion International), and I have personal files on The Way, Unification Church, Scientology, Latter Day Saints, charismatics, and many others. If I don't know the answer, I'll tell you where to find it!

Experience in the area

I have collected personal files on many alternative religions (i.e., Baha'is. Worldwide Church of God, Jehovah's Witnesses, Spiritualism, channeling, etc). I've had direct experience with a number of them. I offer a very fair, unbiased view of these groups. I sift out the objective truth about groups, not the passionate prejudices of their enemies. I have been associated with the Institute for the Study of American Religions.

Organizations

I've done research under the auspices of the Institute for the Study of American Religion.
