Format: Paperback
Let me explain that statement. Each and every book on bibical prophesy, I approach with an atheist's mindset. I have very high criteria for a book on prophesy before I'd consider recommending it to anyone. Each book I read on this topic has to prove to me several things...it has to be logical and forthright, the author has to back up his claims, and above all, it cannot be too preachy or heavy-handed as so to raise my hackles and put me on the defense.
Hal Lindsey almost always fulfills that criteria in his writings, and "Apocalypse Code" is no exception. Not only does he explain why he thinks the way he does, and back up his interpretations with scriptural references, but he also gives examples and explainations of WHY he believes in the truth and validity of the Bible. Mr. Lindsey goes a step further in his interpretations. He interprets out of the GREEK LANGUAGE THE BIBLE WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN, in order to grasp the FULL context of what John was writing.
Why Greek? Why not Hebrew? Because Greek was the language universally spoken in that general area at the time--a historic fact he illustrates through a brief discussion of the reign of Alexendander the Great--prophesised some 200 years earlier by Daniel, I think it was.
Mr. Lindsey does not only do a remarkable, logical, calm and rational job of explaining the book of Revelation and other passages that refering to the times that are to come, but also does a wonderful job of covering the reasons WHY he believes this to be true. It's well thought-out, and well done. It's a great deal of information to absorb, but his overall tone throughout what I've read thus far (I'm half-way through) is sane, calm, and rational.

It seems to me that if Mr. Lindsey's predictions came true, he would have turned in his word processor and become a professional flying harp player, along with all of his followers, long ago. As one who was forced to read his "Late Great Planet Earth" in my public school English class, I beleive Mr. Lindsey is continuing to do what he did then. Tell everyone that the end is near and try and get them convert out of fear, not understanding. His evangelical method is to bring people to Christ through scaring them of the horrors that await them in just a few short days, months, years, if they are not "saved".
This book is just the same song, 25th verse. I believe that the passage in the bible to that reads "You know not the hour at which I come" applies to Mr. Lindsey as well as the rest of us. He has a good gimmick and until the end really does come, he appears to be able to keep predicting the end and selling books predicting the end again when the previous prediction doesn't come true.
An interesting thing to know would be whether or not the profits from his books are invested in long term growth funds.

I have read many of the other people who have reviewed this book. Some I agree and others I do not. I believe this book to be an eye opener. Hal, by his own admission, is not telling you that he has all the answers. Nor is he trying to say that he is 100% correct. He is mearly trying to give you a better understanding of what the Book of Revelations means.
I have read the Book of Revelations and understood very little. His interpretations are just that "interpretations." He allows you to make the decision to believe or not.
Whether or not you agree with him is irrelevant to this book. After reading this book I walked away with one thought. "How prepared am I to enter the Kingdom of God?"
This book scared me to some degree and filled me with great joy. His book brought me closer to my Lord and Savior. Right or wrong, I now have a new urgency and love for Jesus Christ.
If a book can do that, the interpretations are irrelevant. I thank Hal for this. I believe you will enjoy this book. If for no other reasons it will wake you up to the world.

I am writing this only to balance what has been written against this book already.
We won't know the hour or the day that Jesus comes ... because He comes like a thief in the night. But Jesus does give us direct clues to events that will precede his second coming, even tho we won't know the precise time of his coming, we will come to know an about time with our wisdom. As long as we are in tuned to the Lord at all times.
Remember that we are all different, and we can't judge one another. If some come to Christ because they love puzzles and enjoy the challenge of finding God in those pieces they gather... then who are you to judge.
I have been putting puzzle pieces together since since I was 18 and for 18 years... and believe me ...I see things that the average Christian doesn't. Yet the Christian that loves to worship sees things of Christ in the music she/he lifts in His name. The Christian that gives of his/her time to children sees Christ in the innocents of their faces.
Don't put down another brother or sister in the Lord. We are to uplift one another. Gods word says to "have peace one with another."
So I say to those that are thinking of purchasing this book. If your hearts desire is to piece clues together like puzzles ... then buy this book ... and as you read it ... remember it is from one brother that isn't perfect like God, but seeks Him in the gift of writing that he has been given. I am sure there are some truths within this book that I am interested in reading, but always put your own clues together by going to the truth of the words of the Bible. Since we all are short of the Glory of God don't take just one persons words as truth.
Sincerely a Sister in the Lord Jesus .......
