One must be careful when reading Pastor Chuck Smith's (of Calvary Chapel, Costa Mesa) material, especially "End Times." Chuck Smith has criticised others for setting dates for the return of Christ, yet has done the same himself on page 35 of "End Times" and in numerous other books.
For an example of the criticism, in the book "Dateline Earth: Countdown to Eternity," (1989) Chuck Smith criticised Edgar Wisenant for predicting Jesus would return in September, 1988. On page 26, Smith wrote: "He was certainly well-intentioned --- including about his revised prediction of September 1989, when September 1988 came and went --- but he was also dead wrong."
Yet on page 35 of "End Times" (1978) Chuck Smith wrote: "I believe that the generation of 1948 is the last generation. Since a generation of judgment is forty years and the Tribulation period lasts seven years, I believe the Lord could come back for His Church any time before the Tribulation starts, which would mean any time before 1981. (1948 + 40 - 7 = 1981).
For an additional example, in his book Future Survival (1978), page 17 Chuck Smith wrote: "We're the generation that saw the fig tree bud forth, as Israel became a nation again in 1948. As a rule, a generation in the Bible lasts 40 years. ... Forty years after 1948 would bring us to 1988." On page 20 Smith wrote: "From my understanding of biblical prophecies, I'm convinced that the Lord is coming for His Church before the end of 1981. I could be wrong, but its a deep conviction in my heart, and all my plans are predicated upon that belief."
This review is written of Chuck Smith's book "End Times" in an effort to warn others away from this and similar date-setting material by him.

Not only is some of the pseudo science that Pastor Chuck Smith passes off as science absurd, for example he says that scientists were concerned that the planets of the solar system lining up all on the same side of the sun in 1982 could cause massive earthquakes on the earth when in fact any credible scientist from the period said that this planetary lining up didn't mean anything, which proved to be the truth as nothing out of the ordinary happened that year, but even some of his Bible analysis is faulty.

For example, Smith says that Ezekiel 39 shows that after the battle of Gog and Magog that Israel will have to wait seven months to bury the dead bodies struck down in the war due to what Smith says could very well be radiation from nuclear attacks when in fact Ezekiel clearly says that Israel will be burying the bodies for the full seven months and only at the end of the seven months will they hire men to bury the remaining corpses to fully cleanse the land as shown by these passages from Ezekiel below:

Ezekiel 39:11-16

11 "It will come to pass in that day that I will give Gog a burial place there in Israel, the valley of those who pass by east of the sea; and it will obstruct travelers, because there they will bury Gog and all his multitude. Therefore they will call it the Valley of Hamon Gog. 12 For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land. 13 Indeed all the people of the land will be burying, and they will gain renown for it on the day that I am glorified," says the Lord GOD. 14 "They will set apart men regularly employed, with the help of a search party, to pass through the land and bury those bodies remaining on the ground, in order to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Charles Ward "Chuck" Smith, (1927-2013) was the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel, Costa Mesa and the founder of the Calvary Chapel movement; he also cohosted with Don Stewart [You Be the Judge] the "Pastor's Perspective" radio show. He wrote many other books & booklets, such as Soon to be Revealed Antichrist, What the World Is Coming To], End times: A report on future survival, Future Survival, The Final Curtain, etc.

He wrote in the Introduction to this 1978 book, "I have no intention of telling you the day that the Lord is coming for His Church. I don't know that day. Nobody knows that day or hour. But the Bible does say... God wants and expects you to be thoroughly aware of the times in which you live. He spoke of them in detail so you could realize, as these certain events take place, that the coming of the Lord is at hand." (Pg. 6)

He states, "You may say, 'Chuck... Western Europe can never rise to world prominence as long as Russia remains a major threat to the European continent... she is too much of a dominant threat overshadowing Western Europe. How could the [European Economic Community] ever become a world-military, world-dominating power?
