Fear and Follow: A Narrative History of Cultural Evolution
The dividing line partitioning protestant congregations which sponsor "Hell House" and similar activities from textbook classification as Cult organizations is narrow and drawn with a palsy: missing, or at least not present as a rule, is the charismatic personality at it's helm, and further as an icon.
