In the 70s and 80s, a prominent and influential name among Fundamental / Evangelical Christians was Bill Gothard, and his Institute in Basic Youth Conflicts seminars. Thousands of people would fill auditoriums to hear his "Biblical Principles of Life." Blogger and speaker, Micah J. Murray, recounts what it was like growing up under the teachings of Gothard, being homeschooled using Gothard’s controversial curriculum, and working in Gothard’s authoritarian organization. We also talk to him about the scandal that essential destroyed the organization. Micah is blunt about the dangers of Gothard's teachings, why he walked away, and his work in educating others.
