Typos plague this book, with both capitalization errors ("christian" right at the beginning) and spelling errors (or perhaps it's word choice, when "went" becomes "vent" on page 5) and a bare-bones layout of black text on white, the only color in the book is on the cover. The group as depicted is a bizarre collection of contradictions: they claim to be beyond good and evil, but yet still oppose the Nephandi as "minions of the devil," for example. Somehow they are both Lillithian and Christian, and their philosophy is...not the most coherent. Those who are not "saved" are bound to the laws of the bible (how does this help?) whereas those who are saved are not and are saved through reaching a state of lack of knowledge of good and evil, as before the Fall. There are some interesting ideas in here, but they're presented with many contradictions and in a confusing way. Given that one of the only things we know about them from M20 is that the Red Thorn Dedicants are Lillithian mages whose practices make Cultists and Verbena pale, this focuses on them as a vaguely antinomial Christian sect and other than masochism/self-flagellation, doesn't depict anything particularly out of the ordinary for mages of the mentioned Traditions, not that masochism and self-flagellation are particualrly rare among the Traditions in general, much less the Cult and the Verbena.
