This book is good for little other than illustrating how people have completely misunderstood Apocalyptic as a literary genre, as well as the concept of eschatology; not to mention prophecy in general. This book can only be classified, in my mind, in the category of fiction along with its more contemporary "Left Behind" series. ( )

This is a compilation of two separate books. The first is a presentation of Bible prophecy and the second addresses the character and modus operandi of Satan. ( )

This once very popular book contains predictions of what was then still the future. The predictions were based on a code the author thought he had found in the bible, or rather the hidden meaning of words. This author started the myth that the olive tree stands for Israel.

This book has scared the living daylight out of many people. It predicted the end times to happen.

Of course the world is still turning.

Lindsey tried again later, by the way, with the millenium scare [Facing Millenium Midnight] (1999).
When we survived the year 2000, he was still not ashamed of himself and tried again in 2003: "Once Saved, Always Saved?". No doubt full of scare stories.

People. We will survive the end of the Aztec calendar in 2012 too. And the comet in 2038. ( )

Onveranderde herdruk van een boek dat in 1972 in Nederlandse vertaling verschenen is. De Amerikaanse schrijver, een leek die zich verdiept heeft in de Bijbel, geeft aan welke profetiee╠łn in de Bijbel er vervuld zijn en welke er nog op vervulling wachten. En die vervulling beschrijft hij in dit boek. De wereldpolitieke problemen en ontwikkelingen worden geduid en in de Bijbel ingelezen. Via schetsen geeft hij overzichtelijk aan wat er te wachten staat in de komende jaren. De krant wordt gelezen en de brug naar de Bijbel wordt gelegd. Hier is sprake van een bepaalde politieke prediking. Bij de verschijning was er sprake van paniek, want het Rapport van Rome verscheen ook in die tijd en wees ons op dreigende tekorten t.a.v. de grondstoffen. Dit boek geeft als een informatiegids aan wat er te verwachten zou zijn, met naam en jaartal. De huidige situatie is in het boek niet aangepast; sommige ontwikkelingen zijn anders verlopen en jaartallen zijn achterhaald. Het grote bezwaar tegen deze publikatie is dat de Bijbel gezien wordt als een puzzelboek; dat rationeel alles te duiden zou zijn.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031027771X, Paperback)

The impact of The Late Great Planet Earth cannot be overstated. The New York Times called it the 'no. 1 non-fiction bestseller of the decade.' For Christians and non-Christians of the 1970s, 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. Whether you're a church-going believer or someone who wouldn't 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 that's 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 which will bring humanity to the brink of destruction . . . and of incredible deliverance for a desperate, dying planet.
