Read this back in the 70's and couldn't really see what it was saying. Now I totally understand and can see everything clearly. Hal Lindsey really did an excellent job with this book. I can look at the news headlines today and go back to what he wrote in the book years ago. It's all happening just as he wrote and as the Bible says!
I wanted to reread Late Great Planet Earth and found it easy to read and accurate beyond belief. Who would have thought that a modern day prophet could be so accurate, to the point that he meets God's test for prophets "...must always be accurate and true or be stoned..."
This is a 'must read' for believers. It is an excellent book to give to nonbelievers. The effect that it has had over the years speaks for itself. I was introduced to it in 1970 as a 'wild child', part of the "flower children" of California. We passed this book around and made conversation. It helped change many of us from agnostics/critics of organized religion into people with a personal relationship with Jesus the Christ.Today now more than ever, it is an effective tool in reaching the lost. It's an easy read. The author paints a realistic picture pulling you into the events as if you were there. Today with a new movement for 'change' and a world turning their backs on God makes this even more critical reading. Buy 5 or 6 and give them to the lost or the searching souls you know!
This is absolute garbage. Completely misses the point of the book of Revelation, inaccurate is an understatement. If you really want to know what Revelation is about get a good commentary, either Beale, Metzger, or Koester.
This book is not worth the paper it's written on. Revelation is not about politics. Hal Lindsey clearly seems to think it is though. I would also recommend not buying it because a new edition has to be publish all the time because of all the errors Lindsey makes trying to read the newspaper into Revelation. The original claimed that nations that no longer exist today were going to invade Israel. This should really be a newsletter and not a book since it needs updated every time something happens on the evening news. If you want a sane book on Revelation (not to many of those today) read Ralph Woodrow, Great Prophecies Of The Bible.
