It's a Calling, Not a Profession

Since the publication of Let Us Prey in 2017 I have received hundreds of emails from literally all around the globe from people telling me their stories of victimization at the hands of narcissist pastors. These pastors are more than merely full of themselves; they are predators with one of the most dangerous and least treatable of all mental illnesses: Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Or, as one writer puts it, they are “Malignant Narcissists.”

That is a harsh judgment, but it is accurate. They are like a malignancy that must be removed before it destroys the host body.

Jesus warned us against them in Matthew 7:15: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves.” The Apostle Paul warned, “13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness” (2 Cor. 11: 13-15).

They are here. I’ve met them. Perhaps you have as well. Perhaps your pastor is one of them.

Revised and expanded, Let Us Prey was written for you!



So, give me a call or drop me an email (darrell@conflicttopeace.com). You can't lose what you don't have!
Why did I write Let Us Prey?

It is difficult to imagine the emotional and spiritual devastation caused by narcissist pastors. You have to experience it. It will be the most miserable time of your life!

Get out now, a psychiatrist and two therapists who had never spoken to each other told me. They were friends and I had reached out, completely discouraged, confused, and emotionally bleeding. They all said that the pastor had Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and was attacking me because he saw me as a threat. I could not quite understand what they were saying, but I started to research what NPD is. The more I read the more I knew they were right.

I eventually became knowledgeable enough that I presented a paper on narcissist pastors at the world conference of the American Association of Christian Counselors in 2015.

And then the emails started. I now have hundreds from all over the world. Most say something like this: "I thought I was all alone and going crazy, but then I read your work - you saved my sanity!" "I was at the bottom with nowhere to go. I was ready to walk away from everything I loved and had worked so hard for. You saved my marriage, my ministry, and maybe even my life (I was suicidal)."

Many of these stories a printed by permission in the new Let Us Prey.

Recovery from narcissistic attacks is neither quick nor easy, but it is possible. Let me be your guide through Let Us Prey. I've been in that miserable place, and I know the way out!
