Om forfatteren

Hal Lindsey is a Christian evangelist who has written many best-selling books on Biblical prophecy. Born in Houston, Texas, Lindsey was a brawling, hard-drinking tugboat captain on the Mississippi River during his youth, until a born again experience transformed his life. He described those vis mere experiences in "The Events That Changed My Life" (1977). After his conversion, Lindsey earned a degree in theology from Dallas Theological Seminary and worked with Campus Crusade for Christ for eight years. Lindsey first won renown for "The Late Great Planet Earth" which he co-wrote with Carole Carlson in 1970. The book used the Biblical prophets to interpret contemporary events and quickly became a best seller. Lindsey and Carlson followed that success with "Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth" (1972), which explores the Bible's teachings about the devil. In "There's a New World Coming" (1973, rev. ed. 1984), Lindsey expanded on the themes of "The Late Great Planet Earth', with similar success. His other books include "The 1980's: Countdown to Armageddon" (1980), "Combat Faith" (1986) and "Amazing Grace" (1995). Lindsey has explained the appeal and success of his work by describing the formula he used in writing his first book: "As I wrote, I'd imagine that I was sitting across the table from a young person--a cynical, irreligious person--and I'd try to convince him that the Bible prophecies were true," he told an interviewer. "If you can make a young person understand, then the others will understand, too." vis mindre

Fascinating in retrospect knowing how successful this message was and how utterly wrong he is about all the predictions. No great surprise there of course, as the apocalyptic messages from the Bible have been re-interpreted to be talking about the present for millennia. [b:Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation|13003014|Revelations Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation|Elaine Pagels|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1347961414l/13003014._SX50_.jpg|18164043] is a great overview there.

A struggle driven by a hatred that goes back over 4,000 years. Islamic fundamentalism's purpose is to replace the JudeoChristian world order with an Islamic world order. Every American needs to understand the enormity of the threat we face and why.

Satan is out to defeat every Christian. He has a highly specialized arsenal, well-trained troops, and supernatural strategy. One of his most carefully honed weapons if the power of guilt--he causes the Christian to be defeated.

Hal Lindsey's blockbuster served as a wake-up call on events soon to come and events already unfolding -- all leading up to the greatest event of all: the return of Jesus Christ. The years since have confirmed Lindsey's insights into what biblical prophecy says about the times we live in.
