I have written numerous blog posts about our ATI / IBLP years… You can read through them. here.
And, you can “Google” just about any subject matter and the words Bill Gothard or ATI or IBLP and you’ll get a slug of other materials, commentaries and articles to wade through.
Here are a few (and I’m not even getting into or touching on the scandals he’s been involved in, accused of and on and on in the last year and over the last thirty + years).

Bill Gothard’s IBLP:
Benevolent Ministry or Bondage Making?Our family was involved with the various ministries of the IBLP and ATI for many years and we determined that some of the teachings, the errors of those teachings were destructive to our walk with the LORD and therefore no longer support in any way the “ministry” and the myriad of programs of, or associated with, IBLP. There were benefits for which we are grateful but the erroneous teachings forced our decision. We no longer support the work of this organization—however(!) we DO support our brothers and sisters in Christ and pray the LORD’s will for them and do not seek to divide over this matter. We believe that the erroneous teaching leads to an erroneous view of the Word, the grace of God, His design, the sovereignty of God, teaching “character” to unregenerate souls, and the methods of lifting Scripture and its Truths and fitting them into a prescribed application is heresy. Therefore do not endorse the teachings, books resources, the ministry of, or reports written by, Bill Gothard, IBLP/ATI, etc., etc. The articles & links on this page give clear reasoning and many clear examples of the heresy, egregious misuse/misapplication of Scripture and fallacious teaching.
