Hal Lindsey’s books on end-time prophecies are selling by the millions at a rate usually associated with hamburgers. His jigsaw puzzle approach turns Biblical prophecies into a crystal ball through which he predicts with astonishing boldness the precise pattern of events which were supposed to occur by the end of the 1980s—the time when the present history of this world was supposed to end.
In Hal Lindsey’s Prophetic Jigsaw Puzzle, Dr. Samuele Bacchiocchi analyzes five of the predictions which Lindsey made in 1970, showing how they failed to come to pass. The purpose of the book, however, is not merely to show the senselessness of Lindsey’s sensational end-time scenario, but primarily to help Christians understand the true nature and purpose of Biblical prophecies. The author encourages the reader to look forward, not to the occurrence of impersonal events, but rather to the coming of our personal Savior Jesus Christ, our "blessed hope."
The book is written in a clear and simple style which the common person can understand. It has been favorably reviewed in numerous magazines and featured on radio talk-shows. An excerpt of the book was published in numerous religious periodicals and won the 1987 Associated Church Press Award for the category of "Best Feature Article."
