In 1938 Orson Welles terrified radio listeners with War of the Worlds, an imaginative report of a Martian invasion. Now Welles, as gloomy-voiced narrator of a film, The Late Great Planet Earth, out this fall, tells another frightening tale. This time it is a movie version of the end of the world, based on a scenario by evangelist-author Hal Lindsey. The script, claims Lindsey, really isn’t his. It’s all in the Scriptures.
Lindsey’s book Earth, published in 1970, has been translated into 31 languages and 10 million copies have been sold. The public also snapped up five subsequent Lindsey books on the same subject, running his sales total to over 14 million.
Thus Lindsey, 47, may now be the foremost modern-day Jeremiah. “If I had been writing 15 years ago I wouldn’t have had an audience,” he concedes. “But a tremendous number of people are worried about the future. I’m just part of that phenomenon.”
Lindsey splices Bible prophecies of doom with contemporary signs. For instance, he says the Bible pinpoints Israel’s rebirth as a nation as the catalyst to Judgment Day, which will probably occur by 1988. The intervening years will see the emergence of a 10-nation confederacy (prophet Daniel’s dreadful 10-horned beast) or, as Lindsey sees it, the European Common Market. Eventually Russia (biblical Magog) will attack Israel and precipitate a global nuclear war. Only Jesus’ followers will be spared. Hence, Lindsey advises, “the only thing you need to understand is that God offers you in Jesus Christ a full pardon.”
Meanwhile, is Lindsey cowering in his fallout shelter? Not at all. Sporting a gold Star of David around his neck and another on his pinky (“After all, Jesus was a Jew”), Lindsey zips around Southern California in a Mercedes 450 SL. He conducts services on the beach and indulges in his hobbies of photography and surfing. With wife Jan, 45, and their three daughters, Lindsey bikes, hikes and sees the U.S.A. by motor home. His Santa Monica-based management firm, the Generation Company, invests his book royalties and administers a foundation called Hal Lindsey Ministries. Lindsey won’t say how much salary he draws. “Look,” he asserts, “I have made my money from writing books, an honest profession. I’m not running off with the offering plate. God says worldly goods must not possess your heart, and they don’t possess mine.”
Houston-born Lindsey served in the Coast Guard, then became a riverboat captain with a taste for wine, women and song. But at 26 he began to pore over the Bible. His spiritual rebirth, unfortunately, broke up his first marriage. But after entering the Dallas Theological Seminary (an incubator of doomsday prophecy), Lindsey wed Jan, a grad student in religion. Their daughters—twins Robyn and Jenny, 14, and Heidi, 8—gripe that their friends expect them, as Lindsey’s offspring, to be “perfect.” The twins almost walked out of a slumber party when a séance was suggested. “We finally convinced the others that the Devil is real and not to be meddled with,” says Jenny proudly.
Their dad agrees. Then he plunges ahead with a new book about the Jewish concept of the Messiah, just as if there were all the time in the world to get it printed and sold to his fearful followers.
