I read this book back in 1994. It was at a time when I was deep into the health and wealth gospel. I was also a member of a well known church here in Columbus that is broadcast to many cities outside of Ohio and outside of the country. It really opened my eyes and I am grateful to God that I read this book because I began to read my Bible. Which caused me to be the Berean I should have been long ago. The teachings that I was following in the health and wealth gospel pulled me away from God not closer to Him. Most of the time the health and wealth gospel sounds like something at a multi-level marketing meeting (pick whichever company out there). Because of Mr. Hunt's book, I started reading my Bible to get to know God for Himself and not for what He can give me. I recommend it for anyone caught up in health and wealth or any false teaching. But most of all read the Bible and let the Holy Spirit lead you. That's what I did and now I fellowship in a congregation that preaches and teaches the True Gospel.

Clever counterfeits that appear to be genuine deceive millions. In Galatians, the apostle Paul severely reproves these churches for their defection from the faith. Dave Hunt in his books and ministry, in prayerful Paulian fashion, exhorts, identifies, analyzes and warns the church against the wolves amongst our flocks.

As a fellow Berean, Hunt's ministry earnestly contends for the faith. He desires to join together tens of thousands of concerned believers who will not only be informed but who will act upon the Biblically sound information they provide. They believe we stand at a historic juncture no less significant than the Reformation itself. God has called us to earnestly contend for the faith and to rescue as many as possible from Satan's deception.

Many years ago, Dave Hunt amused me when he good naturedly quipped about his antagonists when they are exposed to public scrutiny for their aberrant teachings, ----- "When you throw rocks at a chicken coupe, the only ones likely doing the squawking will be the ones that are getting hit." The difference of course, is that unlike the ad hominum arguments of his detractors, Mr. Hunt always heavily supports his positions with copious footnotes, accurate quotes, followed with sound Biblical exegesis.

Dave Hunt asks: "Will you join me in earnestly contending for "the faith once for all delivered to the saints"? Let us heed the Berean call to search the Scriptures daily and to evaluate everything we read and hear by that standard! Let us love others enough to tell them the truth without compromise!" amen.

I'll not be shy about the fact that I'm a big fan of the discerning style of Dave Hunt, and am familiar with his other works on the current apostasy within today's church. This one fits the bill, but on a much broader scale.

The premise of the book defines how and why the end times come about. On page 65 reads, "Why must the apostasy come first? Apparently it will be an integral part of the great deception and delusion that will sweep the entire world in preparation for the Antichrist's take-over."

After setting the stage, some startling info is given. For example, it is noted that the third President, John Taylor - a Mormon - "said that Christianity was 'hatched in hell' and 'a perfect pack of nonsense... The Devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work."

Yes, this book delves into the realm of the Freemasons, and other groups like the trilateral commission, showing the evolving of relationships between religion, economy, and the government.

To summarize, on page 213 the authors point out that they aren't accusing pastors quoted as purposely setting up the anti-christ, but that "Our concern has been to show that there is a growing pattern of seduction pointing in a particular direction prophesied in the Scriptures, and that none of us is immune from being deceived and deceiving others."

The book gets a little technical on the new age/positive confession movement, but it is necessary to the understanding of how mysticism and false spirituality has entered into the mainstream church.


One reviewer writes above that the authors of this book seem more as "accuser of the brethren" than the comforter.

as a ph.d. psychologist, having already formed my own opinions about the field, i must tell you that i am in thorough agreement with what the authors write about psychology's attempt to become the new salvation. truth is there's nothing new under the sun and as the authors write, everything necessary for strengthening integrity, character, and conduct is to be found in the scripture.

the book is honest and right on target about psychology as well inner healing, positive mental attitude, and the rest. we should be making banquets for the crippled and lame rather than focusing on what happened when we were in the womb - dying to self in loving favor of others.

many christians today are innocent as doves, but seriously lacking in being wise as serpents. even though we are to enter the kingdom as little children, the christian walk is anything but a game. it requires discernment and (as in any war) an understanding of the enemy.

Must reading for the serious christian wanting to walk the narrow way. gutsy and well written. i highly reccommend it!
