Church Leaders reports:
Evangelical leader and co-author of the popular Left Behind Series, Tim Lahaye, has passed away at the age of 90. A few days ago, LaHaye suffered a stroke that he was not able to recover from.
Jerry B. Jenkins, who worked with LaHaye on the Left Behind Series and consequently got to know him very well, described him as being someone with “a pastor’s heart [who] lived to share his faith.” Jenkins says, “He listened to and cared about everyone, regardless of age, gender or social standing. If Tim was missing from the autograph table or the green room of a network television show, he was likely in a corner praying with someone he’d just met—from a reader to a part-time bookstore stock clerk to a TV network anchorman.”
