9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Rich Merritt on October 4, 2008
In 1980, for my thirteenth Christmas, I asked for and received this book. Hal Lindsey, decrees that Jesus Christ would return and rapture us born-agains to heaven by 1988. Lindsey also predicted the ten-member European "Common Market" represented the ten-horned beast, or something with ten horns, called for in the book of Revelation.

Twenty years later and no rapture. The Common Market, now known as the European Union, has twenty-seven nations as members, not ten. There's no 27-horned beast mentioned in Revelation, the last book of the Bible (a book that almost didn't make the cut into the "canon of Scripture"). 27 horns is a lot to carry around, even for a nasty beast. I assumed Mr. Lindsey would've faded into oblivion, having made a fool of himself with his failed predictions, but when I googled him, imagine my surprise to learn he's got a website. The tab for online giving must mean a sufficient quantity of dupes give money to this charlatan to keep him prognosticating his fictional tales of mindless superstition. Not surprisingly, a search of his site for Countdown to Armageddon yields no results.

Harold Lee "Hal" Lindsey (born 1929) is a best-selling author, who is currently host of "The Hal Lindsey Report" TV program. (He formerly hosted International Intelligence Briefing on TBN, but the show was removed as being too "pro-Israel"/"anti-Arab"; he provides the financing for the Hal Lindsey Report himself.) Controversially, he has divorced three times and married four times. (His second wife, Jan, was the best-known, as she was featured on the back cover of his earlier books.) He has written many other books, including The Late Great Planet Earth; There's a New World Coming; The Messiah [aka 'The Promise']; The Rapture; Planet Earth, 2000 A. D.; The Final Battle; Planet Earth: The Final Chapter; Vanished Into Thin Air; The Everlasting Hatred: The Roots of Jihad, etc.Read more ›
