Left Behind

from Film Forum, 01/16/03

Should Christians Leave Behind Left Behind?
Should movies and books receive stamps of approval from Christendom if they have led some of their audience to Christ?

Steven D. Greydanus, in a new essay regarding the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, says no. Greydanus, the mind behind the website Decent Films, argues that LaHaye's Left Behind series is "a franchise that Christians of any stripe should stay far away from."

Visit Decent Films to read Greydanus's Christian-perspective film reviews and the specifics of why he thinks Christians should leave behind Left Behind.

(Douglas LeBlanc offered a similar sentiment in a recent review of the movie Left Behind 2: Tribulation Force: "This series is beginning to feel like a futurist version of the Hell House phenomenon: it tries to lead people to Jesus by scaring them silly.")
