That book actually dealt with some sound theology apart from all Hal's prophetic nonsense.
Herman E. Eickleberry
He is a very great teacher and anyone interested in the End Times and the decoding of Bible Prophecy should read this book.
Julie D. Petty
With the current World News & Events this is great reading with regards to Biblical Prophecy.

Let me explain that statement. Each and every book on bibical prophesy, I approach with an atheist's mindset. I have very high criteria for a book on prophesy before I'd consider recommending it to anyone. Each book I read on this topic has to prove to me several things...it has to be logical and forthright, the author has to back up his claims, and above all, it cannot be too preachy or heavy-handed as so to raise my hackles and put me on the defense.
Hal Lindsey almost always fulfills that criteria in his writings, and "Apocalypse Code" is no exception. Not only does he explain why he thinks the way he does, and back up his interpretations with scriptural references, but he also gives examples and explainations of WHY he believes in the truth and validity of the Bible. Mr. Lindsey goes a step further in his interpretations. He interprets out of the GREEK LANGUAGE THE BIBLE WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN, in order to grasp the FULL context of what John was writing.
Why Greek? Why not Hebrew? Because Greek was the language universally spoken in that general area at the time--a historic fact he illustrates through a brief discussion of the reign of Alexendander the Great--prophesised some 200 years earlier by Daniel, I think it was.
Mr. Lindsey does not only do a remarkable, logical, calm and rational job of explaining the book of Revelation and other passages that refering to the times that are to come, but also does a wonderful job of covering the reasons WHY he believes this to be true. It's well thought-out, and well done. It's a great deal of information to absorb, but his overall tone throughout what I've read thus far (I'm half-way through) is sane, calm, and rational.

Apocalypse Code interprets end-time prophesy from the eyes of the original author. John, "least of all prophets" recorded his visions while imprisoned on the remote desert island of Patamos off the coast of what is now Turkey.
The central idea of the "Apocalypse Code" is:
1)John was a eye-witness of our end-times
2)John recorded his visions accurately, using all of the descriptive metaphors available to him in the age in which he lived.
The "Code" is nothing more than a time warp of first century cultural expressions trying to describe our 21st century apocalypse. The author, Hal Lindsey, insists that it is our generation that has the ability to interpret the "Code" because none before us had references to what a swarm of metal grasshoppers might be, or what kind of a weapon might consume flesh from around a skeleton while still standing, or what kind of arrow never misses its mark when fired and stings with great effect, or how a 200 million man army might be assembled when there weren't even 200 million people in the whole world at the time of the writing.
These reasons and many more lead both secular and believers to the same place: Until now, bible prophesies have been 100% correct despite all logical explanation. The dispersion of the Jews and the rebirth of Israel are two excellent examples. And now we have a set of prophesies about the end times centered on Israel. We see all nations of the world being drawn into the tension there, as predicted. However, oil and Islam are post-prophesy events. Amazing?
Equally amazing are descriptions of our coming world government, a world identification system and system of money credits imbedded into the palm or forehead, against the backdrop of catastrophes like we have not seen in the history of mankind.

Format: Paperback
This book is, by far, the BEST Book-Of-Revelation-explaining book I have ever read. If you want to get a better grip Revelation, as well as other prophetic books of the Bible, you have got to have this book... that's all there is to it! It will also serve as a fantastic witnessing tool as it will appeal to even the most skeptical types. It clearly shows that we are most assuredly living in the last of the final days by comparing 'current events' with what has been prophecied. It also vividly and clearly explains and associated most of the 'symbolism' used in prophetic books with the objects, people and places being described by (1st century) the Biblical authors. I am buying a number of copies if it for friends.

Apocalypse Code to me is one of the best prophecy books I have ever read. It is better than The Late Great Planet Earth. I like the way Hal Lindsey explains different parts of the book of Revelations in the Bible and relate it to modern science, technology, and logical other ways that the prophecies may be fulfilled. I also like the way the book explains how this generation is the likely generation that will see these things take place and I personally believe this. I recommend this book to anybody who is interested in Bible prophecy. Other books I would suggest are Grant R. Jeffrey's "Armaggedon" book and Jack Van Impe's "2001 on the Edge of Eternity"
