Having been raised by an extreamist feminist, I recognized many of the accusations made by LaHaye in this book as being genuinely part of the feminist/humanist agenda. Even had I not become a follower of Christ, I would have recognized every statement as being true. What was most eye-opening for me was how accurate the author was in his predictions. He makes many statements about how "20 years from now..." that, having read this book in 2002, 20 years after the initial publishing, I could see how accurate he was.

I have to credit this book for starting my path to freethought and reason. I read this book many years ago (1985), buying it from Mr. LaHaye in person on one of his revival trips. Going on memory, somewhere in the book it had the Christian viewpoint and presented in a building blocks format, and it has the “humanist” viewpoint, and the foundation for that viewpoint. I would guess that LaHaye intended for every reader to view the humanist viewpoint which he described as so ridiculous and evil, that no one would actually choose it because of his book. For me, it was very confusing because even the way he presented it, I couldn’t’ help but find myself identifying more with the humanist chapter because it was based on reason, freethought, and just generally humans figuring things out for themselves. I didn’t convert due to that, but I know it did irreparable damage to my Christian foundation. I think I never felt easy again about claiming to know truth through faith rather than reason. Of course when I went on to focus in the sciences, ecology, including evolution, it just reinforced that approach to learning knowledge through testing, and skepticism.

I guess it just goes to show that one should be careful presenting a humanist viewpoint, regardless of who you are. You may unintentionally convince someone

Written for the 1980's, the message is still relevant today.

It was heartbreaking to read the negative reviews some have given this book. I read it a long time ago and would give anything if I had read it sooner. It contains vital information I lacked during my late teens that I needed. (I'm in the market now for more copies of the book to give to young relatives.)

Though the book was written back in the 80s, ergo some of the stats aren't current, it's information is timeless. We are all injected into a world that sends such conflicting information, and yet we have a natural tendency to try to make some sense of it all. This book introduces a framework for sorting through information. It also covers aspects about the mind that everyone should have a basic understanding of because indeed there are forces that are battling for control of us.
