Left Behind co-creator Tim LaHaye (along with Jerry B. Jenkins) has now released a brand new book based on the Book of Revelation.

"The Bible's final book, Revelation, can seem intimidating or downright impossible to comprehend, even for serious students of the Scriptures," according to Tim LaHaye's official website, "Filled with complex imagery, vivid depictions of violence, and challenging spiritual references, Revelation is often set aside by readers in favor of more straightforward, easier-to-digest biblical material. Yet the capstone of the canon need not remain a mystery."

In The Book of Revelation Made Clear: A Down-to-Earth Guide to Understanding the Most Mysterious Book of the Bible, it will describe what will happen on Earth after the Rapture, the once-in-a-lifetime event when Jesus Christ resurrects his deceased followers and saves living Christians from impending doom in the Tribulation period. The Tribulation era described in Bible takes place during the end times (aka end of age) period, years prior to Christ's second coming to Earth (as King of Kings and Lord of Lords).

The 88-year-old Christian minister and writer has been spreading the gospel of Jesus for many decades, but he is most remembered for penning the Left Behind books that would later become a film trilogy which starred Growing Pains and Way of the Master star Kirk Cameron in the 2000's.

"My vision for Left Behind came right out of my many years of prophetic Bible studies which literally declares there will be a rapture of all believers worldwide by Jesus Christ when He fulfills His promise in John 14:1-3 to come again and take believers to 'His Father's house.' World conditions today give ample evidence that such an event could come relatively soon which makes it imperative that all Christians do everything they can to assure that all men come to faith in Christ as the divine Son of God who died for their sins and rose again so they will not be LEFT BEHIND." LaHaye said.

Samuel Goldwyn Films is releasing the Left Behind reboot movie later this year.

Left Behind stars Nicolas Cage, Chad Michael Murray, Nicky Whelan Cassi Thomson, Jordin Sparks and Lea Thompson, it will arrive in theaters on October 3rd, 2014.

Lahaye's The Book of Revelation Made Clear: A Down-to-Earth Guide to Understanding the Most Mysterious Book of the Bible is now available in stores after it was released in stores on July 8, 2014.
