More About the Author

Dr. Tim LaHaye (, 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.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Michael Taylor TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 21, 2005
Format: Paperback
LaHaye has written an excellent book on the potential pitfalls of pastoral ministry. While a great majority of pastors are faithful to their wives, the few who do fall cause great harm to their families and churches.

Among the points covered include:

1. The ways a pastor's infidelity affects his wife, family, church, and the lost.

2. Pride can make ministers forget how weak and vulnerable they really are without God.

3. Working too hard for too long can suck the life out of a minister and make him more vulnerable to sexual sin.

4. The bottom line reason for adultery in sin - a minister commits adultery because he wants to.

5. Do not trust in your flesh! Many ministers who fell morally thought they were strong enough to resist temptation.

6. Examples of righteous and fallen people in the Bible who were used by God.

7. Steps to consider when restoring a fallen minister.

8. While God does give people second chances, His patience does have limits.

All in all, an excellent read for anyone: the pastor struggling with temptation who needs to consider the consequences, the layperson/laypeople who may have to deal with a fallen pastor, and family and friends of a fallen pastor.

An excellent and timely read, I wonder how pastors could have potentially avoided falling if they heeded the warnings in this book.

Highly recommended.
