Jerry Wants You To Believe it is "Truth With a Capital T"

Publishers, Inc., contains "the inside story of authors of
moving fiction." In Issue 3 July 19, 2002, (shortly after
the release of The Remnant) they conducted an online interview
with Jerry B. Jenkins. It is here that Jerry B. Jenkins finally
revealed in no uncertain terms the real agenda of the Left

PTJ: Do you
think the fact that you use fiction to convey the biblical
perspective on the end times has much to do with the series'
JJ: Yes, I do. Fiction has a unique role in conveying Truth.
In fact, only fiction that is Truth with a capital T is
Ironically, in today's
marketplace successful nonfiction has to be unbelievable,
while successful fiction must be believable. Left Behind takes
what to some people may be unbelievable predictions from the
Bible and shows how they might play out. It makes the events
of biblical prophecy understandable and thus believable.
Good fiction must be entertaining, but what makes fiction
special—and True—is that the realness of a novel allows it
to carry a larger message. Our goal for Left Behind was to
make the most cataclysmic events that will ever happen-the
Rapture of the Church, the Great Tribulation, the Second
Coming of Christ-come to life for the reader. As long as we
don't violate the reader's proverbial "willing suspension
of disbelief," we have captivated a mind with Truth.
Jerry said, "In
fact, only fiction that is Truth with a capital T is worthwhile."
He referred to the Left Behind series in this
statement. The apostate and larger message of the Left Behind
Series is that it portrays Christians outwardly
merging with Satan's
manifest kingdom on earth (the New World Order)—even to the
point of losing the testimony of Jesus and denying Him before
men—and not forfeiting their souls in the process. This is
impossible according to the Bible, but Jerry B. Jenkins says it
is "Truth with a capital T."

can be very helpful in drawing out scriptural truths from
the series. [bold emphasis mine]
As we have
already pointed out, each book also contains an abundance
of teaching, most of it by characters using and explaining
passages from the Bible. [bold emphasis mine]
that Left Behind brings to all readers is an appreciation for
the Bible. The series brings to life much of the symbolism
that seems so difficult to imagine. In addition, woven into
each book is a rich amount of teaching from the Bible—using
the teaching of left-behind pastor Bruce Barnes (based on
material prepared by Dr. Vernon Billings of New Hope Village
Church) and especially that of Dr. Tsion Ben-Judah, which
develops as the series progresses.[bold emphasis mine.]

Targeted Next: Left Behind Study Books
We have started introducing
discussion guides for the Kids series, scaled for the younger
audience and the smaller size of each of those books. This
summer, Moody Press will introduce a new series of Bible study
books related to the Left Behind series. (Quote source:

Wrath on Left Behind is replete with documented proof

series as being a work of God. Apostasy is being promoted as
"Truth with a capital T."
