An excellent and compelling portrait of a new religious movement through change, evolution, crisis, and rebuilding. Catherine Wessinger has written an excellent introduction, in which she has placed Clive Doyle's life and autobiography within its larger historical setting, offering a short but critical and articulate summary of the developments and belief system of the Branch Davidians and the events, in 1993, in which the group's home was destroyed and many of its members killed.
The events at Waco, even though they took place two decades ago, haven't faded into memory yet, and the book should see immediate interest from readers seeking a better understanding of what happened and why.
Wittmer have done us an incalculable service in producing this finely written and well documented volume. Finally, at last, the real story of 'Waco' is emerging through their work and that of others who have devoted years of careful A Journey to Waco to the subject.
The raid by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms agents on February 28, 1993, which resulted in the deaths of four ATF agents and six Branch Davidians, precipitated a 51-day siege conducted by the FBI.

Only nine people survived the fire that followed the FBI assault on the Branch Davidian residence near Waco, Texas in April 1993. While the media and official reports painted one picture of the Branch Davidians and the two assaults, A Journey to Waco shares a much more personal account of the ATF raid, the siege, and the final assault that details events unreported by the media.
Nearly twenty years after they happened, the ATF and FBI assaults on the Branch Davidian residence near Waco, Texas remain the most deadly law enforcement action on American soil.
The FBI tank and gas assault on the residence at Mount Carmel Center on April 19 culminated in a fire that killed 53 adults and 23 children, with only nine survivors. In their attempts to find Jesus and his teachings relevant within the new culture, they strike out on their own or adhere to para-Christian organizations that retain an allegiance to Jesus without the baggage of the traditional institution.
Tabor, chair, Department of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina at Charlotte; author of The Jesus Dynasty As one of the few remaining survivors of the catastrophic federal siege of the Branch Davidian sect in 1993, Clive Doyle provides us with a humanizing and sometimes humorous biographical narrative, as well as a deeply compelling story of those who lived and died at Mt.
LOOK AROUND YOU, BECAUSE THE PERSON SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO YOU COULD BE A COLD, HEARTLESS MURDERER.
