McLean Bible is Engaging in Spiritual Abuse in How Its Allegedly Using Non Disclosure Agreements

It was quite the story. Several years back this blog was approached by a former McLean Bible employee. They told me of what happened behind the scenes.

Many of those former staff were silenced and abused by McLean Bible and this blog post is calling for them to be released.
