A retired Evangelical pastor, Tim LaHaye is one of the

consider writing a novel until his 60s and barely
writes a word of the immensely popular series on which
he shares author credit. The Left Behind series which
he "writes" along with fellow born-again Christian
Jerry Jenkins lays out LaHaye's view of the end of the
world and the Second Coming. Working from LaHaye's
notes, Jenkins pens the hugely popular series which
boasts sales of more than 60 million copies. LaHaye
has also written over 50 non-fiction titles on such

as the result of an astonishing encounter he describes
as occurring when he was only eight years old. He says
he was praying to God to reveal himself when an open
hand appeared through the ceiling of his room,
emitting radiant beams of light. "I wasn't scared. It
was actually very peaceful," he says. Eventually, he
began doing psychic readings for friends. As opposed
to disquieting or frightening encounters with the
dead, Van Praagh describes this communication as
natural, even easy-going, and claims to feel the
emotions and the personalities of the deceased.
