The Late Great Planet Earth

I read this book about thirty years ago and yet it has always remained as a memory.
Strangely, when writing 'ABOUT ME' for a review, this book came to mind again. OR, was the Lord prompting, perhaps I need to re-read it.

The book was first published in 1970 and yet still remains a top seller today.

Not only does explain about wars and so on in the end times, it also deals with the rise of witchcraft 
and Satanism.

It is a very interesting read that proclaims Bible prophesy by an interesting man.

SYNOPSIS from Amazon

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.

Biography taken from Wikipedia 


He graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Master of Theology degree, majoring in the New Testament and early Greek literature.With Jan, his second wife, he worked with Campus Crusade for Christ and continued with them until 1969. He then helped a mission in Southern California which continued until 1976. He was also a frequent speaker and Sunday School teacher at Melodyland Christian Center in Anaheim, California. During 1969, he wrote his first, and best-known book, The Late, Great Planet Earth. Published during 1970 by Zondervan, this book became a bestseller. Coming on the heels of the Six-Day War, the book fueled the popularity of dispensationalism and its support of ethnic Jews as the "chosen people of God". Many of Lindsey's later writings are sequels or revisions and extensions of his first book. During 1994, he earned his Doctorate of Theology from the California Graduate School of Theology.
