Amazon.com Review

Readers who are aligned with the Christian far right will find kindred spirits in authors Tim LaHaye (coauthor of the "Left Behind" series) and David Noebel (Understanding the Times). The duo has assembled a fear-producing manifesto attacking just about every known minority group and liberal social cause. In the opening chapter, (ominously titled "It Could Happen..."), the authors offer an exaggerated vision of what the world could look like in 10 years if we still forbid Christianity to be taught in U.S. public schools, or if Americans continue to offer gays and lesbians equal rights, or dozens of other similar horrors.

What is the root of this evil future scenario? "Secular Humanism," according to the authors. "Unfortunately, the mainline churches ... have eaten, swallowed and disgusted tons of humanistic dogma: evolution, socialism, Marxism, higher criticism of the Bible, moral relativism, amoral sex education, nontraditional families, liberation theology, process theology, gay theology, feminist theology, black theology, world government, and global citizenship to name a few." Some readers will be thrilled by this call to trek what the authors feel is the moral high ground, especially those who base their religious values upon intolerance of racial equity, homosexual love, and women's right to choose (even if that choice makes her a single parent in a "nontraditional family"). Others will most likely find this a disturbing and offensive contribution to the American landscape. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

Thanks to sturdy coauthors such as Jerry Jenkins, his collaborator for the Left Behind series of apocalyptic romances, and Noebel, LaHaye, long a premier avatar of the Christian Right, has become probably the number one best-selling Evangelical Christian writer. This book re-sounds his 1980 call to arms Battle for the Mind , which helped popularize the term secular humanism and its definition as a faith hostile to Christianity and Judaism, and whose main tenets are atheism, evolution, amorality, human autonomy, and global socialism. LaHaye and Noebel eagerly argue, from mostly post-1980 sources that are, however, seldom primary, that it has only grown stronger since 1980. Indeed, things are so bad for Christians that, they posit in a fictional prologue, jackbooted humanists may be tossing believers in the loony bin by 2010. How to avoid that fate? Well, it is high time Christians got involved in politics, of course, by voting regularly, supporting promorality candidates, working on campaigns and political-party grunt work, and even running for office. Besides grassroots politicking, believers should labor to change the liberal-left culture of schools and colleges, the news media, Hollywood, and the rest of the usual culprits. If this seems unexciting, familiar advice, the trumpets of alarm that herald it are most excited. The troops will rally, though on both sides. Plus ca change . . . Ray Olson

More About the Author

Dr. Tim LaHaye (www.timlahaye.com), who conceived the idea of fictionalizing an account of the Rapture and the Tribulation, is a noted author, minister, and nationally recognized speaker on Bible prophecy. He is the founder of both Tim LaHaye Ministries and The PreTrib Research Center. He also recently cofounded the Tim LaHaye School of Prophecy at Liberty University. Presently Dr. LaHaye speaks at many Bible prophecy conferences in the U.S. and Canada, where his current prophecy books are very popular.

Dr. LaHaye holds a doctor of ministry degree from Western Theological Seminary and a doctor of literature degree from Liberty University. For 25 years he pastored one of the nation's outstanding churches in San Diego, which grew to three locations. It was during that time that he founded two accredited Christian high schools, a Christian school system of ten schools, and San Diego Christian College (formerly known as Christian Heritage College).

Dr. LaHaye has written over 50 non-fiction books and co-authored 25 fiction books, many of which have been translated into 34 languages. He has written books on a wide variety of subjects, such as family life, temperaments, and Bible prophecy. His most popular fiction works, the Left Behind series, written with Jerry B. Jenkins, continue to appear on the best-seller lists of the Christian Booksellers Association, "Publishers Weekly," the "Wall Street Journal," "USA Today," and the "New York Times."

Another popular series by LaHaye and Jenkins is The Jesus Chronicles. This four-book fiction series gives readers a rich first century experience as John, Mark, Luke, and Matthew recount thrilling accounts of the life of Jesus. Dr. LaHaye is co-author of another fiction series, Babylon Rising. Each of the four titles in this series have debuted in the top 10 on the New York Times best seller list. These are suspense thrillers with thought-provoking messages.

Format: Paperback
I watched what LaHaye says in this book happen. I remember school prayer and then moments of silence in school and the worst problems for teachers was gum chewing. Then by the time I got to high school and these were taken from the classroom, we had full scale rioting taking place. Connected? You bet. We used to have decent TV and movies. Now 99% of what comes out of hollywood is pure junk and with all the channels there are very few shows to watch. I gave up on "news"papers years ago. The humanists worse nightmare is being exposed for the decadent misfits they are. At $2.29 we can buy lots of this book and give them out to many who then can pass them on. My pastor is getting my copy tonight. Our main campus has 20000 people....

Format: Hardcover
This book is an outstanding survey of today's culture and how it arrived. Not only does it serve as a biblical looking-glass for today's American society, but it also serves as a history lesson of Secular Humanism and its rise to dominance in the 20th Century.
Those of us who study the Bible know that one of the overriding themes is that Man, by nature, will almost always pridefully reject God and claim that he (Man) is self-sufficient. The Babylonians built a tower and said, "We will be like God." Lucifer's fall was a result of the same pride. The Bible says that the lost "call evil good, and good evil." Isn't that apparent in America today when hunting an animal for food is deemed evil while killing an unborn child is considered good?
One of the biggest Humanist beliefs is that "there is no absolute right and wrong." If that were the case, then there would be no reason to abstain from ANY acitivity (including rape, murder, and -- gasp! -- INTOLERANCE!) Of course, it is arguable what exactly is right and what exactly is wrong. But no one can successfully argue that no right and wrong exists. Imagine the chaos that would ensue (and that surely will ensue before this century is over!)
I'm not sure if and how this ridiculous tide can be reversed, but I know that I will go to great lengths to make sure my children are raised to know the Truth.
I highly recommend this bood for anyone who needs a wake-up call!

Format: Hardcover
In this day and age far too many people call themselves Christians, they go to church, they sing their hymns, they put money into the offering plates. They may go to the Sunday school classes, they may shake hands, they may even say "I strive to live the Sermon on the Mount".
Yet how many Christians it seems truly knows what Christianity is up against in this day and age? How many Christian fathers and mothers know about the secularism being taught in schools, about the political correct Nazis spout out by groups like NOW and people like Al Gore, about teachers telling our kids its all right to do this or that "because we're all just evolved animals anyway."
Tim LaHaye, like Josh McDowell and several others, has hit the nail on the head with this book. In section by section, he takes on full force the problems facing the decline in American values. So many liberals have tried to take Christianity out of the Founding Fathers, so many liberals have tried to say it's ok to kill babies by calling it "a woman's choice to have an abortion" (since...again, we're all just "evolved animals"). So many have tried to make the guilty free and the innocent blamed/or forgotten in our court systems (O.J. Simpson comes to mind).
It's got to stop.
As this book shows, when we enter into our jobs and our kids enter the schools, it's not just another day, it's another spiritual skirmish between God and Satan. As an educator myself, I have seen the PC groups and humanism in action.

Format: Paperback
I am first and foremost a Christian. I am also an educated adult who has worked in the field of education. I have a variety of experience in the arts and have attempted to keep current on news and world affairs. Therefore, I really wasn't all that impressed by MIND SIEGE. The author's main point of the book is to illustrate to Christians how secular humanists are taking over the world. Now, some may find that assertion farfetched. However, it really isn't and I agree with it.

The problem I had with MIND SIEGE wasn't the message (it's not intended for the unconverted). The problem with MIND SIEGE is that Tim LaHaye's writing really isn't that great and he uses a bunch of sources that are basically the same source. Therefore, though the book has a good message it's tangled up in bad writing and bad research. Had LaHaye done a better job at writing and researching the book, it would have been much better. Still it's a decent book to read for any Christian who really doesn't have a clue what's going on in the world and who might be wondering how they can influence the culture. For anyone who is at least half-way knowledgeable I recommend reading ROARING LAMBS by Bill Briner or HOW SHOULD WE THEN LIVE by Francis Schafer.
