The Official Newsletter of the Left Behind® Series from Tyndale House Publishers
Thursday, April 7, 2005
Welcome to today's issue of the LeftBehind.com newsletter!
In the early nineties, Tim LaHaye had a brainstorman end times novel with deep character development, an action-packed storyline, and an appeal to believers and non-believers alike. In time, this idea was grown, shaped, and birthed as the Left Behind series you know and love. But why another book in this genre? How exactly did the series begin? You'll find the answers to these questions and more in this week's feature article, "Origins of the Left Behind Series." Don't miss it!
Then, be sure to read Joel C. Rosenberg's take on the future of Russia. Since writing The Ezekiel Option (due out this summer from Tyndale), which involves a fascist coup in Moscow and the rise of a Russian dictator, he's visited Russia and observed current events. In this article, he discusses the current political climate and potential for revolution.
With the recent release of The Rising, we asked you how you felt about the book. You answered, so visit the reader response page to see other fans' reviews of the new book.

Could the story of Left Behind have been told in one book? That's all Tim LaHaye envisioned when the germ of the idea was planted in his mind in 1985. This article is based on comments by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins as they recalled the fascinating story of Left Behind at a book-signing event several years ago and in interviews with the authors in the newly released The Authorized Left Behind Handbook (Tyndale, 2005).
