"This will be the very most important book you'll ever read, next to the Bible! I could NOT put it down!! You will want everyone you know to read this book!!!" - Bill Sargent
What is hell like, and how does one avoid an eternity of torment? Bill Wiese shares his unforgettable experience during which God allowed him to see and feel the agony people endure in hell.
Wiese's visit to the devil's lair lasted just twenty-three minutes, but he
returned from this with vivid details etched in his memory. He records an
accurate account of his experience in this book, presenting more than three
hundred scriptures that verify the horrors he endured and observed.
From the Author
"Even if you don't believe my story, you should believe these Bible verses and avoid hell just the same. To me, it doesn't matter what causes you to understand the truth as long as it sinks in. My sincere hope is that this book is the closest you will ever come to experiencing hell for yourself," Wiese writes.
Bravo, well done, highly recommended, THUMBS UP, A++, March 22, 2006
Reviewer: Werner Olijnyk "Research Buff" (Lasalle, Montreal, Quebec Canada)
This book "23 Minutes in Hell" is absolutely awesome.
"TELL THEM I AM COMING VERY VERY SOON"..Pg37
"He wants us to warn more people about hell and to share with them just what they need to do to avoid that terrible place."..Pg 35
This book is impossible to put down, well written with over 150 scriptures verses from the Bible about hell and the coming torment of lost souls.
"...Tell others there will be a literal pain felt in hell"..Pg103
Thank God he takes these extraordinary steps to get his message out to warn unbelievers about the realty of hell.
"In my spirit I felt an urgency to warn as many people as possible, as time is running out."...Pg 37.
"Without Jesus as your Savior, you will not be going to heaven
and that is absolutely certain."...Pg 38.
The author then says...
"What God's Word says is far more important than the story of my visit to that place."..Pg 105.
He goes on to tell us, God does not want anyone to go to hell.
Hell is made for fallen angels and demons, not man.
He describes in detail how God feels physically when a soul is lost in hell, it breaks God's heart.
Other Topics include:
Why should you believe the Bible?...Pg 88
Does God use dreams and visions?....Pg 94
Has anyone else experienced Hell?...Pg 97
Where is Hell located?.............Pg 107
This message in the realty of hell which is totally ignored or not preached in churches, left out of the newer versions of the bible, needs to be told.
Thank God almighty that he cares enough about mankind to warn us beforehand of the realties of hell and the complete separation from God before its too late.
"TELL THEM I AM COMING VERY VERY SOON!"..Pg 37
Highly recommended, well written and hard to put down.

He has recorded with The Who, Joan Armatrading, Leo Sayer, Alan Price, Bing Crosby, Maynard Ferguson & Chris Rea. He worked with Henry Mancini on two Pink Panther films & became a member of the Eric Clapton Band, touring & recording with him for 3 years. He is still in demand as a highly respected bassist.

"The Lost Glory" PREFACE:
"To me it seems as if when God conceived the world, that was poetry; He formed it, and that was sculpture; He coloured it, and that was painting; he peopled it with living beings, and that was grand, divine, eternal drama." - EMMA STEBBINS, 1816-1867
As we begin this new millennium, it's obvious that God is on the move in the arts again. Many prophecies over the last fifteen years or so have borne witness to this fact. In the last four or five years there have been many prophecies originating from all over the world that say there is a "new wave" of God coming, and that He is going to put artists, musicians and creative people in the forefront of this move of His Spirit. Given that, I believe with all my heart that this is the right time for this book - absolutely 100 percent.
THE BATTLE FOR TERRITORY
Any Christian with a basic grasp of New Testament theology will know that we are in a spiritual battle. A battle is mostly concerned with gaining or defending territory, a fight for ownership and territorial rights. As Christians we are involved in warfare with principalities and powers that are continually encroaching upon territory that is rightfully ours. We cannot afford to passively accept this state of affairs, but should instead be seeking to take the offensive and reclaim the territory that has been lost, because, in fact, we are actively involved whether we like it or not. The contested "territory" has even included a battle for the rights of the ownership of creation itself.
The atheistic and materialistic evolutionary philosophy that has pervaded western society strongly denies God's ownership of creation, while Christians continue to assert it. This particular battle has raged for hundreds of years and has been heightened more than ever by society's growing desire for a rationalistic "pick-and-mix" religion that only embraces the things it finds palatable. The battle for ownership of creation has also been extended to include the territorial rights of these things called "music" and "art" - even creativity itself.
This battle is in the understanding; it is taking place largely in the mind, as we discover shortly. The enemy has so far managed to pollute and darken the thinking of vast sections of the church, as well as countless creative artists. However, if we are to see a new wave of God's power that will harness the gifts and abilities of such people called to creative worship, we should not be surprised that these are the very people the enemy is keen on attacking and destroying. Our enemy, satan, hates and detests any God-inspired worship and worshipper, for they are a serious threat to the kingdom of darkness.
In Ephesians 1:17-18 we read this prayer: "...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding be enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints."
Having our eyes opened to receive a revelation of who Jesus Christ really is, and who we are in Him, is absolutely vital to effective Christianity. Without such revelation it is impossible to make any progress at all, and we will pose not threat to spiritual powers and principalities. This scripture reveals to us by implication a favourite tactic of the enemy, to propagate spiritual blindness and cloud understanding wherever possible. It shows us that much of the battle will take place in the heart, mind and spirit of a person. It is a battle to gain understanding of our true identity in Christ - who we are, and what God has made possible for us. It is also a battle to discover our true purpose in Christ - the realisation of what God has planned for our life and the abilities He has given us to use for His glory.
Amidst the battle for creativity the church has suffered heavy losses among its creative warriors. It seems as though we have unwittingly cooperated with the enemy and wounded one another, as well as forgotten how to apply the many creative gifts God has given us to worship Him with. Creative people have been misunderstood, misused and estranged from the church for many years. The enemy must be very happy about this. He knows only too well the enormous potential for creative worship that could so easily be unlocked and released.
Max McLean said: "Creative men and women are in the church. Some express their art though music... but others sit quietly alone, waiting to be affirmed, encouraged, and supported. They are waiting for the body of Christ to understand and find room for the novel, the film, the play, the masterpiece ruminating within that could reach beyond the substructure and challenge the basic assumptions of our secular age and point the world to the ultimate truth."
How true and how sad! My prayer is that God will use this book to reveal the truth to you; to enlighten your mind and quicken your understanding, so that you may know the hope to which you have been called.
Artists and musicians are called to be part of an end-time army, marked by humility and brokenness, which will take back what has been stolen from the church and the kingdom of God. 1 Samuel 30 tells a wonderful story about King David the warrior. In this story he and his men have been away on a campaign. They return to Ziklag to find that the Amalekites have invaded, taken all their possessions, and kidnapped their families. David does a very interesting thing at this point. Usually, when someone steals something from you, your first reaction is to go and get it back immediately. However, instead of reacting instinctively, David goes before the Lord and prays, "Lord, shall I go after them?" God replies, "Go, you will get everything back." Going on a mission to reclaim stolen property because you feel aggrieved and violated is one thing, but go with a mandate from Almighty God, under His authority, to reclaim what is rightfully yours, is another matter entirely. You plus God is a majority!
So David goes into the Amalekite camp with God's approval and authority. He finds his enemies eating, drinking and rejoicing over what they have taken from him. The Bible says that David attacked them all day and all night and was absolutely determined not to give up until he got everything back. In the same way, I believe that God is raising up and end-time army who will have the same heart and spirit as King David. There will be a spirit in them that will want to go behind enemy lines and persist until they get back everything that has been stolen - music, the arts, entertainment, the media - all the things that have slipped out of the grasp of the church and have been counterfeited by the enemy. In order to fight this battle, however, these soldiers will have to be battle-fit, well equipped and know what their armor is. They must be armed with essential military intelligence - knowing their enemy, where he lives, his strategy, and where his camp is. I have written this book to try to address some of those issues.
Please come with me on this journey.

Dave Markee is a rare gift to the body of Christ - an artist of great accomplishment who can also teach. Many of the great masters were so devoted to their own performing excellence that they did not have the time or patience to impart their skills and knowledge to others. As you will find in this book, Dave is a remarkable teacher who writes with great clarity and depth.
However, Dave goes a step further than just being an excellent teacher and writer; he carries the authority to impart. I believe this is what Paul meant when he observed that there were many tutors in Christ but not many fathers (see 1 Corinthians 4:15). In Dave you connect with the genuine heart of a father who is even more thrilled to see others do great things than he is to do them himself. For this reason he has given himself to helping others become who they are called to be. In his writing, there is an impartation that not only points the way, but empowers you to walk in the way. That is the anointing of the Father which is given to spiritual fathers.
Dave gave me this book a few years ago. I began to read it but was so behind in reading possible manuscripts for publication that I had to lay it down for a while. After recently spending some time with him, I determined to finish his book. I was stunned at the treasure I had neglected for so long. This is truly a remarkable work, which is not just for worship leaders, but a message for every Christian. It is well-written, very interesting and a crucial truth for our times.
One of my greatest sorrows is feeling that our God who so loves diversity and creativity that He made snowflake different is represented on the earth by a church that tends to be so boringly uniform. For this reason, I believe the gift of art basically expresses one of the most important ways that we were made in the image of God, which is to be creative. Creativity should be the special domain of the church and it must be released again! Who should be more creative than those who know the Creator and are called to represent Him? This book is an important message about how the Lord is going to begin restoring this most powerful gift to the church. It has power to awaken the heart of the artist which has been given to all of us through the Holy Spirit. As this happens, the church will be free to become what it was created to be so that she can give her message to the world.
For centuries many musicians and artists have used the church a springboard for launching their careers into secular music or art. However, there is a change coming. Before the end of this age the ultimate goal of the greatest artists and musicians in the world will be to become good enough to one day play before the King in His house, the church. The church will be the bastion of the greatest of the great in every field. This is only fitting for the household of the King of kings. You may be one of these. If you are one, this book will start to awaken something in you that will burn as a fire in your bones until you have fulfilled your destiny.

FOREWARD BY RAY HUGHES
King David was undoubtedly the biblical blueprint by which all musicians aspire to be likened. No one in history has rivaled the impact he had on his generation. Some might argue that Beethoven, Bach, Elvis or the Beatles influenced larger numbers of people. But of all the great composers and entertainers that history recounts, never in any Hall of Fame or museum will you find it said of their songs that they "will be a truth that endures to all generations." King David's lyrics have been canonised as the very Word of God, who is the Creator of all creation. His lyrics hav4e been interpreted in every musical genre that exists to date. In our generation alone, at least thousands, and possibly millions of new songs have been born out of his original lyrics.
Though David was a king and a warrior he was many other things as well. He was a husband and a father. He was a failure at times, and in some cases I'm sure he was his own worst enemy. At other times it seemed that he could not be defeated. We must remember that this great Psalmist of Israel was, in all his glory, first and foremost a worshipper of God. From the foundational worship of his heart for God and the simplicity of obedience, David composed the lyrics of his life which became "God's song" for us all.
David Markee has obviously captured the essence of God's desire to see and hear His glory flowing to and through the musicians of today. Much of God's glory has been lost to the poisonous issues of the heart. I know of no writing that so clearly and effectively deals with the issues that have ruthlessly robbed musicians of the purity of worship. David's understanding and balanced approach to the subject of creativity and worship is a must read for those who are determined to redeem the lost glory in their lives.

"Here is an awesome book on the little understood topic of
Spiritual Authority and God's protection & blessing." - Bill Sargent
"Under Cover" by John Bevere
This well loved writer effectively uses his personal mistakes to illustrate riveting truths about repentance and forgiveness. As he focuses on the true authority of God, he is careful to explain by example the important difference between "submission" and "obedience."
The same struggle with divine authority is also represented through the lives of John the Baptist, the Apostle Paul, and other biblical figures. An especially helpful book for Christians who want to develop a serious pursuit of God.
The Promise of Protection Under His Authority
There is a secret place under the shadow of the Almighty, where there is liberty, provision, and protection. Yet, too many believers do not enjoy this hidden place. Instead, they seek freedom and security outside of it in a realm where the very opposite exists. They are tricked into believing true and lasting freedom can be found away from Divine authority. Under Cover exposes the subtle yet rampant tactics the enemy uses against believers - the failure to recognize and properly relate to Divine authority.
Excerpt from chapter 12:
"Where do we draw the line? Does God
expect us to obey authorities no matter what they tell us to do? What if I am
told to do something that is sin? The Bible teaches unconditional submission to
authorities, but the Bible does not teach unconditional obedience. Submission
deals with our attitude and obedience deals with our responsive actions.
The only time-and I want to emphasize the only exception in which we are not to obey authorities-is when they tell us to do something that directly contradicts what God has stated in His Word. In other words, we are released from obedience only when leaders tell us to sin. However, even in those cases we are to keep a humble and submitted attitude."

Four must-read books on preventing further
erosion of our Christian rights and values
while regaining our Christian nation:
"The Marketing Of Evil" by David Kupelian
Americans have come to tolerate, embrace and even champion many things that would have horrified their parents' generation – from easy divorce and unrestricted abortion-on-demand to extreme body piercing and teaching homosexuality to grade-schoolers. Does that mean today's Americans are inherently more morally confused and depraved than previous generations? Of course not, says veteran journalist David Kupelian. But they have fallen victim to some of the most stunningly brilliant and compelling marketing campaigns in modern history.
"The Marketing of Evil" reveals how much of what Americans once almost universally abhorred has been packaged, perfumed, gift-wrapped and sold to them as though it had great value. Highly skilled marketers, playing on our deeply felt national values of fairness, generosity and tolerance, have persuaded us to embrace as enlightened and noble that which all previous generations since America’s founding regarded as grossly self-destructive – in a word, evil.
In this groundbreaking and meticulously researched book, Kupelian peels back the veil of marketing-induced deception to reveal exactly when, where, how, and especially why Americans bought into the lies that now threaten the future of the country.
For example, few of us realize that the widely revered father of the "sexual revolution" has been irrefutably exposed as a full-fledged sexual psychopath who encouraged pedophilia. Or that giant corporations voraciously competing for America's $150 billion teen market routinely infiltrate young people's social groups to find out how better to lead children into ever more debauched forms of "authentic self-expression."
Likewise, most of us mistakenly believe the "abortion rights" and "gay rights" movements were spontaneous, grassroots uprisings of neglected or persecuted minorities wanting to breathe free. Few people realize America was actually "sold" on abortion thanks to an audacious public relations campaign that relied on fantastic lies and fabrications. Or that the "gay rights" movement – which transformed America's former view of homosexuals as self-destructive human beings into their current status as victims and cultural heroes – faithfully followed an in-depth, phased plan laid out by professional Harvard-trained marketers.
No quarter is given in this riveting, insightful exploration of how lies, both subtle and outrageous, are packaged as truth. From the federal government to the public school system to the news media to the hidden creators of "youth culture," nothing is exempt from the thousand-watt spotlight of Kupelian's journalistic inquiry.
In the end, "The Marketing of Evil" is an up-close, modern-day look at what is traditionally known as "temptation" – the art and science of making evil look good.
About the author: David Kupelian is the managing editor of WorldNetDaily.com, the world’s largest independent news Web site. He is also a widely read online columnist and the driving force behind the acclaimed monthly news magazine Whistleblower.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DAVID KUPELIAN'S 'THE MARKETING OF EVIL' ...
"David Kupelian dares to tell the truth about the overwhelming forces in our society which take us far away from our original American concept of freedom with responsibility, happiness with commitments, and traditional values. 'The Marketing of Evil' is a serious wake-up call for all who cherish traditional values, the innocence of children, and the very existence of our great country." – DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER, talk-show host and author
"It's often said that marketing is warfare, and in 'The Marketing of
Evil,' David Kupelian clearly reveals the stunning strategies and tactics of

Judeo-Christian culture. If you really want to understand the adversary's
thinking and help turn the tide of battle, read this book!"

"David Kupelian's research brings into sharp focus what many have sensed

market rank lies. But the good news is that the truth will eventually win out,
and Kupelian's important and groundbreaking book makes enormous progress toward

"Every parent in America needs to read this book. David Kupelian
skillfully exposes the secular left's rotten apple peddlers in devastating
detail. From pitching promiscuity as 'freedom' to promoting abortion as
'choice,' the marketers of evil are always selling you something destructive –
with catastrophic results. Kupelian shines a light on them all. Now watch the
cockroaches run for cover."
– MICHELLE MALKIN, Fox News Channel
"Over just a few years, life in America has become indescribably more
squalid, expensive, and dangerous. Like the dazzling disclosures in the final
page of a gripping whodunit or the fascinating revelation of a magician's
secrets, 'The Marketing of Evil' irresistibly exposes how it was done. It will
elicit an involuntary 'Aha!' from you as you discover who did it and your soul
will soar with optimism as you discover the only way we can undo it. In years to
come Americans will acknowledge a debt of gratitude to David Kupelian for his
honesty, courage, and laser-like insight in this must-read book."
– RABBI DANIEL LAPIN, Toward Tradition
"Marketers are out to get America's youth, and they'll stop at nothing to
do it. In 'The Marketing of Evil,' David Kupelian treats parents to a rare
insider look at exactly how our children – and adults too – are being lied to,
confused, and seduced by radicals and phony experts. The game's over, folks –
the con men have been exposed. I urge every parent to read this eye-opening

"Did you ever want to know – I mean really know – how and why America is

questions, in fact, especially if you think you know the answers, you must read
David Kupelian's 'The Marketing of Evil.' So clearly does it expose the
incredible con game to which Americans have been subjected that it offers real
hope – because when our problems come this sharply into focus, so do the

"Excellent! Simply excellent. If you want to solidify your Christian
worldview – or just understand what the culture war is all about – you owe it
yourself to read David Kupelian's 'The Marketing of Evil.'"

"David Kupelian's new book 'The Marketing of Evil' is brilliant! He combines superb common sense (that is so rare in our society) with the important biblical command to expose 'the fruitless deeds of darkness' (Ephesians 5:11). By doing so, he breaks the spell of the carefully marketed lies that are destroying our civilization, and sets the stage for revival and reformation. 'The Marketing of Evil' must be read by every concerned American." - Dr. Ted Baehr, chairman of the Christian Film and Television Commission and publisher of MOVIEGUIDE.
"David Kupelian's book is like a giant X-ray machine that exposes the atheistic, secular left's brilliant marketing campaigns aimed at seducing America away from its founding Judeo-Christian faith. If you want to know how such a thoroughly decent country as America could go so wrong so fast, you simply have to read 'The Marketing of Evil.'" - Hal Lindsey, columnist and best-selling author of 20 books, including one of the best-selling books of all time, "The Late, Great Planet Earth
"'The Marketing of Evil' takes no prisoners. David Kupelian brilliantly explains how a clever, radical elite is persuading Americans to accept evil as good, and good as evil. With precise clarity, the book blows the lid off the most successful – and dangerous – cultural scams. In addition, Kupelian's personal vignettes and vigorous writing hold the reader's interest throughout." - Robert Knight, director of Concerned Women for America's Culture & Family Institute.
"David Kupelian's 'The Marketing of Evil' should be required reading for politicians, clergy, grandparents, parents and youths in every high school and college. His vivid writing and solid research continually provide that 'Aha!' light bulb moment that is often a turning point in life. As someone who thought she already knew more than necessary about the 'evil' market, this book gives me new dots to connect to old dots. Ignorance is not bliss, and Kupelian reveals how ignorance of evil can cost us our lives, the lives of our loved ones and the life of our nation." - Judith A. Reisman, Ph.D., president of the Institute for Media Education and author of "Kinsey, Crimes & Consequences."
"First it was 'live and let live.' Now the purveyors of behind-closed-door aberrant behavior are spreading their destructive lifestyles in our homes through television programming, our schools through 'tolerance education,' and in our legal system by legislative and judicial fiat in the name of 'social justice.' We’ve read and heard about these attempts to soften our resolve against moral relativism in bits and pieces, but David Kupelian loads our plate with a full course of their plotting agenda. It's not a pretty tale, but it's a necessary one. One of the best books I've read in a long time on what's really going on and what we can do about it. To be made aware is to be prepared." - Gary DeMar, president of American Vision and author of over 20 books, including the three-volume "God and Government."
"David Kupelian's fascinating guided tour of today's toxic culture and subverted institutions provides a powerful explanation as to why more and more American families are home schooling their kids. If you want to preserve the brightness and innocence of your children, I urge you to read 'The Marketing of Evil.'" - Michael Farris, president of Patrick Henry College, author, and founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association

The game's over, folks – the con men have been exposed. I urge every parent to read this eye-opening book." - Rebecca Hagelin, vice president of The Heritage Foundation and author of "Home Invasion."
WND Managing Editor David Kupelian's new blockbuster book – "The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom" – has garnered a rare five stars on Amazon.com, based on reader reviews.
And what are those reader-reviewers saying?
'A must read!'
I have not been able to put this book down. The con men are truly exposed in this one. Ever heard the question, "How do you boil a frog?" You don't put it in hot water since it will jump out. Instead you put it in cold water and slowly heat it up. This book shows you how the frog is almost boiled due to the craftiness of radical elitists who are trying to change our culture their way. It shows you the how and why they are getting America to accept what we would have gagged on just a few years ago. America is slowly being poisoned and this sheds the light on the guilty. A must read. I now know what I will be getting everyone for Christmas (can I still say that word?) this year.
'Wow, what an awakening!'
… This book has put a powerful voice to many things that truth-loving people in America have felt in their spirits for a long, long time. David Kupelian has done his homework, and no doubt he's going to take much flak from what is revealed in this book. I like my medicine straight and my truth even straighter, and this book delivers, with no apologies or flinching. This is a book that will be hard to handle for many; some will write it off as the "extremely right-wing, fundamentalist, bigoted, politically incorrect, intolerant rantings or the Religious Right" and whatever other labels of such nature can be used. But this book is destined to make waves and open eyes for those who dare to read it. (And if you think he spares the Christian church from this factual expose, wait until you read the final chapter ...) His research is delivered with clarity and depth, and the many sources quoted demonstrate that this is beyond one man's opinion. I for one am forever changed. Thank you, Mr. Kupelian, for such an honest, raw, logical, painful expose of the wounds of our society and your plea for a return to sanity and righteousness.
'David Kupelian pulls back the veil on evil'
David Kupelian exposes like nobody before how key statistics related to crime, divorce and everything negative is related directly to our propensity to literally buy evil. Evil that was intentionally marketed to the public!
David covers everything from the gay rights movement to the ACLU atheist agenda to big-dollar medical establishments promoting abortion as "a woman's right to choose." Even the very slogan "a woman's right to choose" generated laughter when it was coined. It was part of a cold and calculated marketing scheme.
The chapter "blood confessions" explains exactly how a baby dies in the womb during an abortion. This is heart wrenching and very disturbing, so beware. You will never again doubt that a murder is taking place during an abortion. The fact that the American public has embraced this horrific evil is beyond words.
The book is rounded out with how the Christian majority has become morally diluted and therefore lost the moral influence it once had. David adds some insights on how this can all be turned around.
This book really pulls back the veil on evil. A must read for anyone that cares about the future of our nation.
'What an eye-opener!'
This was quite an eye-opening book on the state of the nation and how it got the way it is now. I will forever look at the media and liberalism even more cautiously than I have in the past. …
'This book is an eye opener'
David Kupelian breaks down in very simple terms what is obviously causing a breakdown in American culture and morals. … He shows how slick marketing has broken down our morals and have led our county down a slippery slope. Mr. Kupelian has written what many of us feel has happened but were not sure how to explain it. Most of us now know that we are in a cultural divide of right against left, liberal against conservative, blue state against red state. In "The Marketing of Evil", it is good against evil. He finally shows us how we can get back to the truth of our founding principles. This is a good read. I couldn't put it down.
'The deception of evil exposed'
David Kupelian has done a masterful job exposing the deceitful desecration and destruction of Christian culture in American by dedicated, deliberate, demonic design.
'Truly an eye opener'
… The author has had the courage and determination to call a spade a spade by exposing the rampant commercial prostituting of our morals, values and principles all in the name of the almighty dollar leaving a current generation of toddlers stripped of any reference to what is right or wrong and without a moral compass. David Kupelian has authored a masterpiece that belongs in every home in America next to the Family Bible.
'Don't believe the negatives, read it for yourself'
… There's really little criticism you can do to Kupelian's book since what he does is provide lengthy quotes from the same people who have an agenda to undermine what many Americans hold dear: God, family, church, the Constitution (yes, as it was historically intended, something that can be proved). Hey, if you want to see those things undermined, just say so. Don't claim that that's what The Marketing of Evil is doing, because that's simply not true.
… The Marketing of Evil is extremely well written, documented, and provocative. I'll be buying more copies for gifts.
'First you will be scared, then outraged – some important points to consider'
This fast-paced survey book is one of the more eye-opening books you will read this year. I got this book thinking there wasn't much I'd learn, but I was quite mistaken.
As most who cherish biblical values know, there is something deeply wrong in our society. Only, as the author describes it in the context of "The Matrix," you didn't know what it was. David Kupelian tells you what that "what" is.
As I started to read the book, I was frightened. Frightened to see how the issues of "gay rights" became such a hotbed topic. According to the author, this wasn't about rights, but it was the calculated subversion of culture. When you read about the deliberate and downright misleading campaigns designed to make us accept homosexuality, you start to get nervous. Just how much of this campaign have we swallowed?
As I read more, and the topics grew into the myth of church-state separation, the assault on marriage, and the promotion of planned child murder (abortion), I became very angry. Not at the fact that these things exist, because I knew of these things already. But it was how these concepts were "sold" to us that really fumed me. How due to calculated ad campaigns, abortion stopped being an issue about murder, and became an issue of choice. Why marriage became less of a contract of love and more about women's "liberation." And you will be shocked at how much of the "facts" that have fueled our obsessions with sex in this country was based upon fraudulent (and even criminal) research. The chapter on Kinsey and the selling of sex in America is a true eye opener, and worth the price of the book by itself.
… The author uses the last chapter as an appeal in the spirit of Francis Schaeffer for Christians to "stop the insanity." It is a plea we ignore at the peril of our entire culture.
'Glad I read this book'
I'm glad to have read Kupelian's book. The author shows how there has been an all-out attack on traditional American ideas over the past 50 years via the media. It really opened the eyes to what a small percentage of Americans that are active and organized have done and are doing. Topics include: the myth of church and state separation, children's rebellion, multiculturalism, big media, public school system, sex (and Kinsey), abortion, and Christianity. After finishing, I bought three of these books as presents; one for a conservative, and the other two for my liberal friends who need to see facts over hype.
'Signs of the times. Required reading. Excellent'
Although primarily directed towards an American audience, this excellent book is no less relevant to the rest of the Western world and the international community as a whole.
… This book may offend those with a secular, humanistic, left-wing outlook but I feel that it is required reading for our time. Indeed, it is one of the best books that I have read for some time.

"Persecution" by David Limbaugh
Persecution -- that's the name for it. Tolerance might be the highest virtue in our popular culture, but it doesn't often extend to Christians these days.
Christians are increasingly being driven from public life, denied their First Amendment rights, and even actively discriminated against for their beliefs.
In this relentless exposé of political correctness run amok, best-selling author David Limbaugh rips apart the liberal hypocrisy that condones selective mistreatment of Christians in the mainstream media, Hollywood, our schools and universities, and throughout our public life.
In Persecution you'll enter the hotly contested battle for the soul of our public schools. Here are appalling -- but true -- stories of how anti-Christian social engineers not only prohibit school prayer and forbid students from wearing Christian symbols, like a simple cross, but even expunge the real story of Christianity in America from history textbooks. Worse still, in the name of "diversity," "tolerance," "multiculturalism," and "sex education," the social engineers actively inculcate hatred of Christianity as ignorant, repressive, and offensive. Not exactly the agenda of most parents whose tax dollars support the public schools.

"Taking America Back" by Joseph Farah
According to Joseph Farah, Americans are faced with an unresponsive and unaccountable one-party political system, an establishment propaganda machine posing as a free press, and cultural institutions—educational, charitable, entertainment, religious, medical, and others—seduced by the materialistic gods of an all-powerful secular state. Even more important, the crisis this represents cannot be resolved through the political system by electing new politicians to office. A much more profound, long-term, and fundamental shift is needed, one that rejects the validity of the all-powerful, all-knowing, all-controlling state and affirms the values upon which the American nation was founded.
"Taking America Back" is thus about freedom, the freedom the founding generation of leaders fought for in establishing the United States. Farah shows how, as a nation, we have moved from being freedom fighters to comfort lovers, and he calls for all Americans to realize where our present state of affairs is taking us. It is time to choose the kind of country in which we want to live, whether we want to live under the rule of law or under the rule of judicial government and a constitution that is a "living document," which for all practical purposes means living without a constitution. According to Farah, "The choice is simple: the world of standards and morality, of marriage, order, the rule of law, and accountability to God or the world of anything goes, aberrant behavior, do-your-own-thing lifestyles, and moral codes that change with the speed of the latest public opinion polls."
How can Americans take back their nation? The author says the only way we can reestablish our freedom—our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—is to break the hammerlock of statism and the notion that moral relativism holds the answers to ordering people's passions and behavior.
"Taking America Back" exposes the weaknesses in America's current political and cultural systems and offers practical solutions—solutions that are real and doable—that can revive freedom, decency, and justice in our nation.
