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.
