Document: T. Boersma, Is the Bible a Jigsaw Puzzle? An Evaluation of Hal Lindsey’s Writings (St. Catharines, ON.: Paideia Press, 1978).
Excerpt: In this book I have set myself the task of examining Hal Lindsey’s method of interpreting the Bible. The opening chapter offers a short sketch of Lindsey’s vision of the future as it comes to expression especially in The Late Great Planet Earth. The next chapter deals with the proper method of interpreting the Bible. Lindsey claims to interpret Biblical prophecy “literally.” Is his approach the proper method, or does Scripture itself point in a different direction? There are more questions that arise from an evaluation of Hal Lindsey’s writings. How are we to read the book of Revelation? What does the Bible say about the future of Israel? Are we to await a millennial kingdom or thousand year reign of Christ? Answering these questions will at the same time show us how to respond to Lindsey’s writings.
