Yeakley and other scholars critically examine practices and problems of the International Church of Christ, also formerly known as the "Boston Movement." Writers discuss such controversial practices as "discipling" that involves reporting on every aspect of personal life to another member of the church, who advises -- and, some have said, commands -- on such topics as whom to date and what movies to see.
Yeakley and his co-authors discuss the ICOC with compassion, and with an eye toward what Christians should admire in the group and its leaders, as well as what beliefs and practices should provoke concern.
Included is a FASCINATING analysis done by Yeakley with the Myers-Briggs Type Instrument, analyzing members' perceptions of changes in themselves in the past 10 and 5 years, and comparing these results with results from members of non-Boston churches of Christ, and members of mainline churches (Presbyterian, etc.) He also addresses the Boston leaders' explanations for these changes, and his own analyses. Yeakley is experienced in the use of MMTI and has a long history in the churches of Christ. At least one of the other contributors, Danny Dixon, was involved in the ICOC for many years.
Overall, a hard-to-find but vital book for those seeking to learn more about this growing and controversial international movement.

I wish I had read this years ago -- it might have helped me work my way out of the ICOC sooner and move toward healing a little mor quickly. Anyone associated with the ICOC should read this, even if they decide to stay in an ICOC church -- knowing what went wrong will help avoid repeating the same mistakes.

If I would have know about this book years ago, I'm not sure where I would have been in the Christian community. This book opened my eyes to some of the things I have been through. I would recommend it to anyone who has been hurt by the "discipling movement".

The methodology is flawed, as it's not a longitudinal study and the purpose was explained in the instructions, thereby suggesting its possible conclusion to the participants. Meyers-Briggs is controversial in the first place and is hardly scientific. This study does not convince me that "high-demand groups" do not, in fact, attract people who, for whatever reasons, wish to be in one. If we wish to discuss victims and abusers in cults, we should look at children and their parents, respectively.

Yeakley's "Discipling Dilema" is more than an expose of a potentially harmful religious group. With insight, he discusses a healthy view of MBTI Type psychology in groups. The book also offers a rich discussion of the type of Christ (basically "untype-able").
