David, it wasn't Hal Lindsay that wrote Left Behind,but he did popularise Dispensationalism (and sensationalised it) in the 70's with his books The Late Great Planet Earth, Satan is Alive and well on Planet Earth and Countdown to World Disaster. Tim Lahaye wrote Left Behind about 20 years later but few people know he also wrote a book in the 70's in which he claimed that Jesus would return before the people who were alive during the First World War have all died!!! Wish I could remember the name of the book!!

Thanks Eric - you're right of course. I corrected this in the magazine but have picked up the earlier version above. I'll correct the text above.
