He joined forces with Doctor Henry Morris to spearhead the Institute of Creation Research, an organization that is responsible for a significant portion of the creationist literature in the country. His bibliography consists of 85 books. More than fifty of them are non-fiction. Though, the world knows LaHaye more for his fiction work than his non-fiction literature.

The author writes about family life, sexuality, Jesus, and prophecy. His wife created ‘Concerned Women for America’. They were married for fifty-five years before the author died. Their family included children (four), grandchildren (nine), and great-grandchildren (seven).

Tim LaHaye was born on the 27th of April 1926 in Detroit, Michigan. He was only nine-years-old when his father, a Ford autoworker, died. Frank La Haye suffered a fatal heart attack. The event rocked LaHaye’s world. He tried and failed to overcome his grief.

But then a minister at the funeral told the boy that, because Frank had accepted Jesus Christ, LaHaye would see him again in heaven. This raised the author’s spirits, giving him hope for the future. By the mid-1940s, he had joined the army.

Barely out of his teens, the boy boarded a bomber, serving as a machine gunner in the European theater of operations. Once his life in the army came to an end, he attended Bob Jones University (Greenville, South Carolina), Western Seminary, and Liberty University, attaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree, a Doctor of Ministry Degree, and a Doctor of Literature Degree.

Ministry work took him to Pumpkintown (South Carolina) and Minneapolis from where he pastored congregations. It wasn’t until he joined the Scott Memorial Baptist Church that he finally settled down. pastoring its congregation for the next two and a half decades.

In the 1970s, the author became quite political, creating organizations like the ‘Council for National Policy’ whose objective was to influence policy at the highest level. LaHaye was determined to defend the supremacy of traditional Christian values in the US and he used a multitude of political avenues to fulfill his agenda.

He has been credited for having supported Ronald Reagan’s presidential election. The ‘Left Behind’ series for which Tim LaHaye is best known was actually written by Jerry B. Jenkins. LaHaye created the concept. He also produced a lot of notes. Jerry, a former sportswriter, used those notes to write the literary series.

LaHaye was on a flight one day when he saw a married pilot flirting with a flight attendant. He wondered what the pilot would do if the rapture happened. This gave him the inspiration for ‘Left Behind’.

The books were so popular that LaHaye was eventually offered the opportunity to sell the movie rights. He regretted doing so. He wanted his novels to become Hollywood blockbusters. But the adaptations that were eventually released were so much smaller in scale than he had anticipated.
