Tim LaHaye, co-author of the bestselling Left Behind series, is moving
to Zondervan. LaHaye is partnering with lawyer Craig Parshall on a new apocalyptic series called The End. The series deals with the political lead-up to the end times as foretold in the Book of Revelations. Publisher's Weekly reports:
"While my past works have piqued interest in biblical prophecy on a global level, The End series includes many prophecies that were not covered in Left Behind," LaHaye said in a statement. Parshall is the author of the Chamber of Justice legal thrillers series. The Left Behind series, published by Tyndale House, has sold more 65 million units.
The first book in the new series will be called Edge of Apocalypse
. It will have a print run of 500,000 copies and will be released on April 20, 2010.
