Left Behind Handbook Left Behind—The Complete Handbook

How did Tim LaHaye become interested in prophecy? How did he join with Jerry Jenkins to write the Left Behind series? Where does the name Nicolae come from? These are just the tip of a very large iceberg of information about the Left Behind series that you'll find in the new Authorized Left Behind Handbook.

Trivia fanatics will love it, but it's also a great resource book for any fan of the series. The Handbook covers "an insider's look" at the series and its authors; summaries of each book; the tribulation timeline; biblical facts behind the fiction; a trivia challenge; and a complete concordance of the people, locations, modes of transportation, and weapons in the series.

The Handbook was the brainchild of Sandi Swason, but bringing it into print involved a team of very talented people. We recently had a chance to talk with Sandi about this exciting project.

An exclusive interview with Natan Sharansky on the eve of President Bush's summit with Vladimir Putin.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Students of end-times prophecies know Ezekiel 38-39 foretells the rise of a dictator (Gog) in Russia (Magog) who will build an alliance with Iran (Persia) and other Islamic nations, and threaten to devour a newly peaceful State of Israel.

Those students will want to take note of President Bush's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 24-25, in Slovakia. Mr. Bush was expected to speak with the Russian leader about his increasingly dictatorial moves, Russia's nuclear relationship with Iran, and the future of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, now dramatically accelerated by the recent peace summit in Egypt.

To better understand the challenges ahead in Russia, Iran, and the Middle East, Tyndale novelist Joel C. Rosenberg (author of the forthcoming The Ezekiel Option, July 2005) interviewed former Soviet dissident-turned-Israeli Cabinet Member Natan Sharansky. The following article appears in WORLD magazine (www.worldmag.com).
