The Silent War

Ministering to Those Trapped in the Deception of Pornography

by Henry J. Rogers

Forward by Norm Miller, Chairman of Interstate Batteries

Amid the smoky dance clubs and seedy sections of town, there exists a thriving pornography industry. But it doesn’t end there, and so the danger to men is all the greater.

The Silent War is a lifeline in a world in love with evil.

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.

“…(Henry Rogers') style is refreshingly honest and direct, sharing both personal experience and extensive biblical and psychological research. It offers hope and victory.

Kerby Anderson, President of Probe Ministries

“…he has seen it destroy families by crushing the self-esteem of the wife, enslaving the husband, and diminishing the marriage relationship. He is also very concerned for those who are involved in this destructive industry… He is one of the most genuine people I know, sincerely warm and compassionate… Read his book. …This book could help a nation of men find victory over the temptations of pornography.”
Norm Miller, Founder, Interstate Battery Corp.

The Silent War tackles the tough issue of pornography and its impact on Christian men. Too many men are losing the fight when God wants us all to be victorious. Henry Rogers understands the problem and clearly communicates the solution. Get the book to help other men or get it to help yourself.”
Joe Gibbs, NFL Hall of Fame Coach, Former Coach, Washington Redskins, Owner of Joe Gibbs Racing

“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).”
