Dr. Tim LaHaye, 1926-2016

Our hearts and love go out to Mrs. Beverly LaHaye and all the LaHaye children. Tim LaHaye was an American original and a truly remarkable Christian man who made a huge impact for good, and for God, on the world.

As a former employee of Concerned Women for America, founded by Mrs. LaHaye, I was able to meet Dr. LaHaye a few times. Energy and enthusiasm just exuded from the man–who wrote more books than most people read in a lifetime! Now he is experiencing boundless joy in Heaven with His Savior, Jesus Christ.

SAN DIEGO, July 25, 2016 — Christian Newswire/ — Dr. Tim F. LaHaye (photo above), the son of a Detroit autoworker who grew up to become a respected pastor, international best-seller and prominent evangelical leader, died July 25, 2016 in a San Diego area hospital, just days after suffering a stroke. Born in Detroit, Michigan on April 27, 1926, he was 90 years old.

Dr. LaHaye, an Air Force veteran, is perhaps most noted for his blockbuster best-selling book series “Left Behind,” which he co-authored with 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 of his co-author’s passing.

Over seven decades Dr. LaHaye influenced others from the pulpit, in books, the political arena and at home.

Jenkins said that Dr. LaHaye had become a “spiritual giant” to him.

“The Tim LaHaye I got to know had a pastor’s heart and lived to share his faith,” Jenkins said. “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.”
