Author Information

Tim LaHaye Bio: Dr. Tim LaHaye is a noted author, minister, counselor, television commentator and nationally recognized speaker on family life and Bible prophecy. Co-author of the Left Behind series, it was LaHaye's idea to fictionalize an account of the Rapture and the Tribulation.

LaHaye came up with the idea of a novel about the Second Coming. "Sitting on airplanes and watching the pilots," he told People Magazine, "I'd think to myself, 'What if the Rapture occurred on an airplane?'" LaHaye looked for a co-writer for several years and was then introduced to writer Jerry B. Jenkins through their mutual literary agent, Rick Christian, president of the Colorado Springs agency, Alive Communications, who also negotiated the book deal.

Jerry B. Jenkins Bio: Jerry B. Jenkins describes himself as the "most famous writer no one's ever heard of."

Jenkins is the novelist for the series, while co-author LaHaye, a former pastor, provides the outline of prophecy based on biblical text. The duo's teamwork has resulted in a series that has broken all precedents for Christian fiction. As the Dallas Morning News writes, "It's not your mama's Christian fiction anymore."
