Story reveals how she turned to God for deliverance from drug dependency



The way of escape is obedience to God. He always has an instruction to lead us out, but it is up to the individual to pursue it.

Involved in a movement for 12 years, author Mary Alice Brown finally found the strength to leave it through a divine encounter with God and tells the story of her ordeal in a new Xulon Press book, The Way of Escape: The Story of One Woman’s Escape From the Urantia Cult and from Prescription Drugs ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61215-789-4). Brown carefully traces her steps into and out of the Urantia movement, a little-known but fast-growing movement based on The Urantia Book. The author says the Urantia movement, which supposedly claims to be the model for the “New Age,” is what led her to become dependent on a high dosage of antidepressants. Her miraculous deliverance from that doctor-prescribed drug dependency is told with page-turning detail in this new book.

“I want readers to know there is a way of escape out of anything—any trap, any bondage, any addiction, or any sin that a person happens to stumble into, or that the devil has planned to destroy us with,” says Brown, who is an ordained minister. “The way of escape is obedience to God. He always has an instruction to lead us out, but it is up to the individual to pursue it.”

Brown—who says she is now happy, clear-headed, and peaceful—believes this book will resonate with readers from all walks of life. Already that belief looks to be coming true, as scores of reviewers from across the country have given the book high praise: “This is a book that is hard to put down,” writes one reviewer. “You just want to keep reading to see what happens next. Simply written in everyday dialog, it’s like the author is sitting in your living room sharing the journey of her life.”

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 8,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order The Way of Escape through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through,,, and in e-book formats.
