Author, pastor and prophet Tim LaHaye died of a stroke on Monday. He was 90. LaHaye was perhaps best known for his Left Behind end times series with co-author Jerry B. Jenkins. “Thrilled as I am that he is where he has always wanted to be, his departure leaves a void in my soul I don’t expect to fill until I see him again,” Jenkins said. “The Tim LaHaye I got to know had a pastor’s heart and lived to share his faith. 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.” LaHaye spent almost 70 years in the pulpit. He wrote more than 60 nonfiction books, including tomes on prophecy. He led multiple churches, including Shadow Mountain, which is now pastored by David Jeremiah. FULL REPORT
