Let's be clear about something: Hal Lindsey predicted that the world would end by 1988 (within one "Biblical generation" of the founding of Israel as a modern nation). Did it? Nope. Let's be clear about something else: Hal is more than just a dope who took Dispensationalism and Fundamentalist paranoia a bit too seriously. He got rich peddling this stuff. He has a classic Corvette collection (and has had three wives to date, the present one being about 30 years younger than himself).
In 100 years, Hal Lindsey will be remembered in footnotes of history books that equate him with past failed prophets like William Miller (the Adventist who predicted the coming of Christ in 1843), Ann Lee (the Shaker founder who declared the start of the new Millennium in the 1840s), Joachim of Italy (the world would end in 1260), Jan Matthys (a Reformation-era doomsayer who caused a Branch-Davidian style slaughter), and Montanus (the original false prophet of doom, who said Jesus would return in Asia Minor in the 2nd century). Like them, Lindsey felt behind him a trail of disappointed, dispirited people who took him seriously. Lindsey predicted that the world would end by 1988 - and guess what, we're still here! A lot of people altered their entire approach to life; they put off college, put off marriage, and did NOTHING to make the world a better place - after all, why help care for the poor, fight the persecution of Christians overseas, or work to stem the moral decline of America when IT'S ALL ABOUT TO GET BLOWN UP ANYWAY. In fact, the rise in abortions, environmental destruction, starvation, disease, etc. is A GOOD THING, because it confirms our FAITH that the RAPTURE is about to happen!

"There's a New World Coming" is an excellent verse by verse explanation of the book of Revelation. It is a must read for anyone who would like to know more about bible prophecy. Hal lists every verse, and then explains them in concise and easy to understand language. Drawing on the work of earlier eminent bible scholars and his own study of this subject, Hal has written a masterpiece. Everything is explained: the letters to the seven churches and their meaning for modern Christians, the rapture of the church, the dreaded beasts of the latter days, the rise of the antichrist, the Whore of Babylon, Christ's return, the millennial kingdom, the last judgement, and the holy city of New Jerusalem. This book also explains the more difficult to understand details which are often overlooked by Christians. Who were the Nicolatians? Who was Antipas, described by Christ to St. John as "my witness, my faithful one...?" What is the hidden manna, and what is the white stone with a new name that will be given to those who are faithful? Many people wonder what heaven looks like. The picture of this wondrous place painted by St. John so long ago is eloquently explained. This is truly one of the best written and insightful books about the bible that I've ever read, and it is exciting as these events could happen at anytime. It's a great read.

One of the first and still one of the best studies in Revelation, Lindsy's study is still well worth reading. If you're interested in a novel which explores these themes with intellegence and insight, I'd avoid Left Behind and instead, buy Brian Caldwell's We All Fall Down, the best novel on Revelation ever written.
