Recovering Grace in the Media

17 September 2015, 21:12



In the past two weeks, two major investigative reports were released in the media, both of which were focused on aspects of Bill Gothard and the IBLP and ATI organizations. Both of these reports utilized Recovering Grace spokespersons as sources. We found both of these articles to be exceptionally well-written, and their content to be much deeper and more well-researched than many of the articles that have been released in the past few years. Both reporters went the extra mile to ensure accuracy of facts, and to create a detailed picture of the effects of Gothard’s teachings. As such, we would like to share them with you, our readers.

The first article was written by an investigative reporter named Sarah Posner. Sarah worked on this article for several months, repeatedly asking Recovering Grace and many other sources for verification of even the tiniest details. Her article can be found here:

We trust that you will find these articles helpful and perhaps worth sharing with those you know who might find them beneficial.

Students who have survived Gothardism tend to end up at a wide variety of places on the spiritual and theological spectrum, thus the diversity of opinions expressed on this website reflects that.
