John Umland reviews, Keep Your Greek, by C.R. Campbell.
What would you do if your child joined a religious cult — and broke off all contact with you and the rest of his or her family?
This is a documentary about a religious cult that goes by various names, including the Roberts Group, Brothers and Sisters, and simply The Church.
In 1995, in Tokyo, 12 people were killed, more than 5,500 others sickened when packages containing the poisonous gas sarin were leaked on five separate subway trains by Aum Shinrikyo cult members, the Associated Press writes.
Japanese police in December 2010 confirmed that a total of 6,583 people fell victim to the 1995 sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system and seven other crimes committed by the Aum Shinrikyo cult.

How can Christians communicate what we believe without being denigrating or inflammatory?
Those of us who are Christians, whenever we ponder how to act or speak, naturally wonder, “What would Jesus do?” In this case, how did the Prince of Peace communicate with those with whom he had deep differences? How did the one who described himself as “gentle and lowly of heart” speak to his co-religionists in an Abrahamic faith when they found themselves divided over fundamental issues? Maybe Jesus can give us guidance in these days when Muslims and Christians often look at each other in terror and fear.
