Ministering to Those Trapped in the Deception of Pornography
by Henry J. Rogers
"The Silent War" is a lifeline in a world in love with evil.
With the amount of pornography which is inundating the country and the world, I felt that "The Silent War" should be promoted. It used to be that one had to risk being seen sneaking into the adult bookstore in the bad part of town (why are they always bad?) to obtain porn. Nowadays, if you just have Internet access, you can view the hardest of hardcore pornography from the safety and security of your own bedroom. This temptation has proven too great for many - even Christians. Lust and the craving for pornography can be an addiction, no different from alcohol or cocaine. This danger needs to be recognized, and if you're hooked on porn, or if you're merely concerned about the presence and accessibility of porn on the Internet, you should get this book.
(or this book can be ordered from your local bookstore)
Amid the smoky dance clubs and seedy sections
town, there exists a thriving pornography industry. But it
doesn't end there, and so the danger to men is all the
For in hotel rooms, trendy bookstores, television screens,
and Internet Web sites, there is enough viewing of
pornographic materials to trap lives forever.
It is this world that author Henry Rogers reveals to us in a
book that has too few peers. The shame and devastation
of pornographic addictions literally kills marriages every
day. The Silent War, through interviews, statistics, and
other facts, traces the unraveling of American men by the
claws of pornography. Rogers, chaplain for Interstate
Batteries, discusses his own battle with this terrible
addiction, then builds concrete steps for helping
others climb out of the pit. He offers hope to thousands
of people trapped in secret sin.

impact on Christian men. Too many men are losing the fight when

"As any military man knows, when one goes into war there is a
need to be trained and ready for the encounter. The book The
Silent War is a much-needed writing for both Christians and
non-Christians because of the addiction to pornography and lust
that pervades our world today. If you want to be ready to win
the battle and the war, The Silent War is a must read."
-Brigadier General Dick Abel, USAF (Ret.), Exec. Dir.,
Military Ministry, Campus Crusade for Christ
"The Silent War is a look behind enemy lines of the largest battle
men and their families face today that very few have the courage to
talk about: sexual temptation. ...Yet, Henry also gives hope and
inspiration to the weary traveler trapped in this web of lies and
deceit... Every man and woman concerned about the decay of
decency in our culture must read (this book)."
