- Personal Freedom Outreach offers a number of
very useful publications dealing with heretical, abusive, or other issues which require a biblical

Please refer to the section entitled "Spiritual Abuse/Guidance" on PFO's
- Real Truth Publications (Steven Lambert) publishes articles from his book
including this one on
The Fallacy of Personal Pastors.
Searching Together (Jon Zens)
has a number of good articles on the church and how Christians should function in the church.
One particularly good article is on

- Frank Viola

Church Revolution web site includes a number of thoughtful and well researched
articles about movements in the church, including a number of blog posts on
The Shepherding Movement. One article entitled
is particularly helpful in listing many of the major North American groups involved in current day
Soverign Grace Survivors
presents a forum by former members of one of the major groups involved in the current day
- Seek God
presents a history of the "Ft. Lauderdale Five" who founded the Shepherding Movement.
Charles Simpson Ministries web site has archived copies of all the old New Wine
Magazine issues (this was a major source of information for the early shepherding movement).
