Publisher's Summary

Two decades after the publication of The Black Book of Communism, nearly everyone is or at least should be aware of the immense evil produced by that devilish ideology first hatched when Karl Marx penned his Communist Manifesto two centuries ago. Far too many people, however, separate Marx the man from the evils wrought by the oppressive ideology and theory that bears his name. That is a grave mistake. Not only did the horrific results of Marxism follow directly from Marx’s twisted ideas, but the man himself penned some downright devilish things. Well before Karl Marx was writing about the hell of communism, he was writing about hell.

“Thus Heaven I’ve forfeited, I know it full well,” he wrote in a poem in 1837, a decade before his Manifesto. “My soul, once true to God, is chosen for Hell.” That certainly seemed to be the perverse destiny for Marx’s ideology, which consigned to death over 100 million souls in the 20th century alone.

No other theory in all of history has led to the deaths of so many innocents. How could the Father of Lies not be involved?

At long last, here, in this book by Professor Paul Kengor, is a close, careful look at the diabolical side of Karl Marx, a side of a man whose fascination with the devil and his domain would echo into the 20th century and continue to wreak havoc today. It is a tragic portrait of a man and an ideology, a chilling retrospective on an evil that should have never been let out of its pit.

Must read in today's climate

For those who are god fearing people and love this country. This is a must read, people need to understand the ideology we are up against. It is an eye opening book so far. People we need to understand that there are those who worship this man who in all intensive purposes was probably mentally ill. This book explores the actual writings Marx and shows you how much he despised the word of God and Christianity. Open your eyes and prepare your minds so this country does not perish.

MIND-BLOWING!!!

If you are curious. Like myself. About Marx. His philosophies and influences. Why they have been so heavily prescribed by so many over the years and especially right now. This book goes above and beyond giving you a clear picture of Marx. His influences on others and theirs on him and how they continue to do the work of evil

Karl Marx and Communism's ties to Satan

An excellent showcase of the battle between God and Satan as seen through constitutional republicanism (not the Republican party) versus atheistic Communism and all of its derivatives.

Just started listening

The engineering of this reading did not do a good job cutting out the harsh “Sssss”. It is so interesting that I am hoping I will stop being bothered by it. Not the readers fault and there is no line to rate the technical recording.

There is no real arguments in this book

I was expecting to hear some real arguments about Marx's theories, instead of having a religious fool telling me that because Marx had been a rock teenager writing dark and satanic poetries so that he must be responsible for all the atrocities happened after his death. As a listener from China who personally resent the communist party, I know this party twisted a lot of Marx's theories, and many of his points had been proven wrong, but never get to systematically understand this guy and his work. What I expected was a book which criticizes and analysis himself and his theories with reason and logic, but this one is complete garbage, only written for illiterate American Christians who would turn themselves into walking biohazard bombs by refusing to put on masks during a pandemic. Communism was invented when Christians didn't give any crap about child labours but only worrying about how to gain upper hand in dominating the world. I do have a lot of problem with what Karl Marx said, don't believe it is the ultimate answer to everything, and I also know that non-Christian countries had been bullies as well before colonialism and industry revolution, but one of the reasons that commies plagued this world is that religions didn't do their job in the first place.

Important but repetitive

No one wants this information about Marx to get out than someone like me from Soviet Russia, but I found the book more repetitive than informative. It would have benefitted from being shorter in length but written better, instead the book repeats the exact same poetry and material Marx wrote and analyzes it from different angles throughout. just when you think you’re done with one poem - it comes back again in the next chapter, and the next, and all you can think of is: haven’t we already been through this a thousand times before? topic - 10/10 Execution - 3/10 - student who procrastinated on submitting his paper. Shameful. That’s a real shame, because I am the actual target audience, what does that say about those we are trying to convince using this book...?

Not for the faint hearted but necessary for every Christian

Very well researched! Some chapters were difficult to hear but necessary. Thank you for adding a spiritual dimension to the woke movement.
