The years since have confirmed Lindseys insights into what biblical prophecy says about the times we live in. Whether youre a churchgoing believer or someone who wouldnt darken the door of a Christian institution, the Bible has much to tell you about the imminent future of this planet. In the midst of an out-of-control generation, it reveals a grand design thats unfolding exactly according to plan.
The rebirth of Israel. The threat of war in the Middle East. An increase in natural catastrophes. The revival of Satanism and witchcraft. These and other signs, foreseen by prophets from Moses to Jesus, portend the coming of an antichrist . . . of a war that will bring humanity to the brink of destruction . . . and of incredible deliverance for a desperate, dying planet -- Publisher

Hal started an unfortunate trend of interpreting Biblical Prophecy based on today's headlines. Now, any time someone stumps their toe in Jerusalem, a new book comes out that proclaims the end is near.
In the 30 or so years since this book was published, there have been hundreds of books in a similar vein, that get people whipped up into a frenzy that the end is near, then have their faith shaken when the events do not play out as predicted by the book.
With these concerns, I will say that I did learn and grow by reading the book back in the 1980's. It was the first time that I had ever seen anyone really take the Bible seriously. The book spurred my interest in the Bible, and started me on a quest of daily time in the word which continues till today. I would bet that there are others like me out there, that were drawn into the Bible because of an interest in prophecy.
I do believe that we are living in the last days, but to understand them, one needs to not turn to these sensational prophecy books, but turn to THE book . . . the Bible. The clearest template for end times events is Matthew 24. Prayerfully read his for an overview of how things unfold. Then as you read revelation, map it back against the events of Matthew 24. Also, read Revelation in a Bible with good cross references.Read more ›
So why bother with what can easily be written off as paranoid millenarianism? Well, while many have outgrown its simplistic approach to world events, it still resounds for much of the Church and this is shown in the continued audience for books by Lindsey and other "prophecy pundits." While it is certainly true that Tim LaHaye has replaced Lindsey as the popular voice of dispensationalism, it cannot be denied that Left Behind was made possible by this book.
Part of the commercial success of both authors has to do with their placing the dispensationalist view in a popular book form. For LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, it was the pulp novel. Back in 1970, Lindsay and C. C. Carlson did the same with a popular genre of their day - the sensationalistic expose. Like most books of this type (e.g., The Bermuda Triangle, Chariots of the Gods?, The Philadelphia Experiment, The Population Bomb), it is written in a breezy soundbite style that is long on conjecture and short on facts.Read more ›
