Hal Lindsey is recognized as one of the leading authorities in the world on Bible Prophecy. He was acclaimed by the New York Times as the best-selling non-fiction author in the world for the decade of the 1970's -- and they only reported half the books he had actually sold.
Harold Lee "Hal" Lindsey (born November 23 1929) was Born-Again reading a Gideon's New Testament while serving as a tugboat captain on the Mississippi River in 1955. He studied the Bible intensively under Rev. Robert Thieme in Houston, Texas from 1955 to 1960. He also completed the four-year Master of Theology course at Dallas Theological Seminary, majoring in New Testament Greek and minoring in Hebrew.
As a Seminary student, Hal worked with Campus Crusade for Christ and continued with them until 1969. Hal helped set up a special Bible School next to UCLA in 1969 named "The JC Light and Power Company", which produced many ministers and missionaries. This school continued until 1976. During this period, in 1969, Hal wrote his first book, "The Late Great Planet Earth". It was published in 54 languages and has sold an approximate 35 million copies.
That book has been used to bring well over a million souls to Christ. God only knows the full number. This was followed by "Satan Is Alive And Well" - 1972, "The Liberation" - 1973, "There's A New World Coming" - 1974. All of these were bestsellers and touched millions of lives. Hal has now written 20 bestsellers. Hal also helped write and appeared in the movie, "The Late Great Planet Earth" with Orson Wells. It was commercially one of the most successful movies of 1977. Hal has appeared on many national TV shows, such as The Today Show, CNN, Larry King, Merv Griffin, Charlie Rose, The Late Night Show, ABC News, NBC News, to name a few.
In 1994, Hal earned his Doctor Of Theology degree from the California School of Theology. Today, Hal focuses his attention on his International News Website...
Hal had formerly anchored a weekly news show on TBN called "International Intelligence Briefing" for over 12 years. He has frequently hosted and often appeared as a guest on "Praise The Lord", the Trinity Broadcasting Network's nightly flagship show, since the 1970's. Hal has announced that he is taking his popular television program to other outlets beginning in 2006. His new half-hour news and commentary series will be called "The Hal Lindsey Report." A new video version of it will also be streamed on his website.
