"Most of what you've heard, read or been told about the End Times is wrong," says popular radio host and bestselling apologist, Hank Hanegraaff. "We have come to accept a wide range of beliefs and teachings about the future, about the ultimate battle between good and evil, about the last days, and about how our world will end. And most of these beliefs and teachings are based on fundamental misinterpretations of what the scriptures really say about the end times."

The Apocalypse Code helps readers understand what the Bible really says about End Times, and why what we believe matters so much in today's world.

More About Hank Hanegraaff

Hank Hanegraaff Hendrik (Hank) Hanegraaff serves as president and chairman of the board of the North Carolina-based CHRISTIAN RESEARCH INSTITUTE. He is also host of the nationally syndicated Bible Answer Man radio broadcast, which is heard daily across the United States and Canada—and around the world via the Internet at

Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading Christian authors and apologists, Hank is deeply committed to equipping Christians to be so familiar with truth that when counterfeits loom on the horizon, they recognize them instantaneously. Through his live call-in radio broadcast, Hank equips Christians to read the Bible for all it’s worth, answers questions on the basis of careful research and sound reasoning, and interviews today’s most significant leaders, apologists, and thinkers.

Hank is the author of more than twenty books, which have cumulatively sold millions of copies. Christianity in Crisis and Resurrection each won the Gold Medallion for Excellence in Christian Literature awarded by the Evangelical Christian Publisher’s Association (ECPA); and Counterfeit Revival and The FACE that Demonstrates the Farce of Evolution each won ECPA’s Silver Medallion—the latter published in the condensed Fatal Flaws: What Evolutionists Don’t Want You to Know.

Other noteworthy volumes include The Prayer of Jesus, which rose to number one on the Christian Marketplace Bestseller list October 2002, and the popular Complete Bible Answer Book—Collector’s Edition, which clearly and concisely answers common questions regarding Christianity, culture, and cults, while tackling complex questions including, “How can Christians legitimize a God who orders the genocide of entire nations?” and “How could the Bible command a rape victim to marry her rapist?”

Through his ground-breaking The Apocalypse Code: What the Bible Really Teaches about the End Times and Why It Matters Today, as well as his historical fiction works The Last Disciple Series and Fuse of Armageddon, Hank exposes the dangers of both Christian and secular Zionism. And in Has God Spoken? he provides memorable proofs for the Bible’s divine inspiration. Additional works include The Legacy Study Bible, The Covering: God’s Plan to Protect You from Evil, The Creation Answer Book, and the forthcoming novel The Last Temple.

He is a regular contributor to the award-winning CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL and an articulate communicator on the pressing issues of our day, having spoken in leading churches, conferences, and on college campuses throughout the world (most recently at the University of Tehran, Iran). Hank and his wife, Kathy, live in Charlotte, North Carolina, and are parents to twelve children.

Hank Hanegraaff currently resides in the state of California.

This Author Cannot be Trusted  Apr 10, 2007
The emotional exaggeration and vitriolic attacks are so great readers will have a difficult time trusting the author's research and writing. Hanegraaff's diatribe should be ignored.
An Attack on Dispensational Sensationalism  Apr 1, 2007
For the past five years, I've appreciated how much Hank has taught me in the areas of theology, the Bible, and differences between orthodoxy and non-orthodoxy. In the first 17 years while on the radio, Hank hesitated to articulate his views on eschatology while he was in careful study of the subject. In the last 3 years, Hank has worked diligently on The Apocalypse Code and has shared different aspects of his eschatological views on his radio shows with well-informed experts in the areas of Christian Zionism and the Book of Revelation and Dispensationalism. Hank realizes that the debate over eschatology is really founded in a debate over hermeneutics; the art and science of Biblical interpretation. Hank wisely explains his hermeneutic first before sharing his views on eschatology. The main benefit to the reader is to learn a Bible study method that has obviously produced great results for Hank in the understanding the entire Bible.

I will offer my evaluation in the various subtopics that are presented in The Apocalypse Code(abbreviated TAC)

Bible Interpretation--- TAC teaches the Bible student how to notice literary genre and literary devices such as metaphor, simile and hyperbole. In his customary way, Hank uses acronyms to teach the precepts.

Critique of the Bible Prophesy Movement--- TAC does not endorse the "Bible Prophesy Sequence" that was developed in the late 1800s and made popular in the 20th century. The futurist view of the book of Revelation has enjoyed much popularity in the 20th century mainly due to the efforts of authors who have marketed sensational books on Bible prophesy. TAC points out the problem of "second chance salvation" in the proposed 7-year tribulation. Although these teachings have been a problem for the church in the 20th century, Hank's personal attacks on Tim LaHaye have become tiresome and overdone. Although Bible Prophesy teachers are Dispensationalists, relatively few theologians are teaching the sensational version. TAC fails to mention that Dispensationalism and its hermeneutic is hardly taught or recommended today in Christian colleges and seminaries. The few that are left, such as Dallas Seminary has been in dialogue for decades with covenant theologians and has moderated its teachings somewhat from that of the mid-20th century. There are many fine "Classical" Dispensational theologians teaching today, but the trend both now and in the future is likely to be towards "Progressive Dispensationalism" or more towards Covenant Premillennialism or even Amilllennialism.

Israel--- TAC trains the reader to view this important term both as a "people" under the Old Covenants as well as seeing that not all Israel was the True Israel, the believing remnant, that continues on as God's people, called the church in the New Testament. TAC helps the reader see that the separation is not between Israel and the Church but within Israel itself; that is, Covenant Israel made up of mostly Jews and a few Gentiles and the True Israel, the future- focused believers in Jesus.

Christian Zionism--- TAC holds that the work of Christian Zionists can be politically dangerous. The view that 2/3 of the Jews returning to the land(according to Zech. 13:8) will be killed by the coming 7 year holocaust tribulation is chilling. (All Christian Zionists are Dispensationalists, yet many Dispensationalists are not Christian Zionists.) The chapter on Christian Zionism is a complete and excellent treatment with contributions from fine scholars.

Future 7-year tribulation--- The Dispensational Interpretation of Daniel's 70-week prophesy which suggests a necessary gap called "The Church Age" after the 69th week is thoroughly dismantled. A footnote in the back of the book explains how difficult this text really is and how one should not use it as an indispensable part of one's eschatology.

Pre-Tribulational Rapture---. If a Future 7-Year tribulation period is not really taught in its one and only text, Daniel 9, the Pre-Trib Rapture view is hardly possible. Rather than linking the rapture to a tribulation period, TAC links the rapture with the glorious resurrection- a most significant doctrine in Christianity! TAC demonstrates that Darby invented and popularized the Pre-Trib rapture. The invention was necessitated by Darby's "Two-people-of God view". That is, the "program" for "the church" transitions to heavenly purposes at the rapture thus clearing the way for a separate "program" for "National Israel" to be initiated at the rapture and during the final 7-year period.

The Millennium--- TAC fails to offer information on the various views as well as how the church has viewed the Millennium in history. What is the relationship of Revelation 20 to Rev 19? Does Rev 20 come chronologically after Rev 19 or is it another recapitulation? Also lacking is a teaching on the two-ages usually designated as "this present age" and "the age to come" . Are they entirely separate and sequential or overlapping with the age to come starting in an inaugurated and spiritual form with the resurrection of Christ? How do we read a scripture like 2 Cor. 5:17 where is says that we are a "new creation". How is this true "already" but "not yet". It is disappointing that TAC does not teach one how to handle the eschatological language that pervades the entire New Testament.
TAC fails to emphasize the problem of the Dispensational hermeneutic which imports hundreds of OT prophetic texts into Rev 20:1-10. It should be noted that texts in the OT that speak of "paradise restored" qualities such as peace and prosperity are consummated in Rev 21 rather than in Rev 20. On the other hand, one should not fail the read the extensive footnotes at the end of the book which demonstrate the depth of research. On page 256 there is a brief and excellent explanation of the "1000 years" of Rev. 20:1-7, for those looking for the "1000 years"in the main text.

Partial Preterism in Revelation--- The Partial Preterist view of Revelation as presented in TAC has had little acceptance in today's seminaries. Modern exegetical commentaries on Revelation place the visions in the period between the First and Second comings of Christ using a blend of idealism, preterism, and futurism. Rather than seeing the visions in sequence, they are viewed instead as recapitulations which view the scenes from different "camera angles" . TAC makes reference to Dennis E. Johnson and Greg Beale who have fine commentaries on Revelation that are not at all like the preterist interpretations in TAC. Today's commentaries do not depend on either an early- date composition or a late-date composition.

Preterist 31/2 years --- Most see this symbol as a reference to an "attack on the temple" theme as in the attack from 167-164 BC. Likely, John in Revelation is applying the "attack on the temple" theme to the "true temple", (the church and the church age) rather than to another physical "shadow" temple as in 67-70AD Jerusalem. Likely John's application is from "shadow-figurative-physical" to the "true-literal-non-physical". Since Revelation shows strong use of Daniel, John's likely reference is 167BC rather than 70AD. TAC gives a good explanation, though, of the "type- shadow" temple compared to the "true temple" but breaks its own rule by saying that John is seeing the "type-shadow" temple of Jerusalem 70 AD in Rev. 11.

Preterism and the Temple in Rev 11 and 21.--- Likewise, in Rev 11, the angel is likely not measuring the "shadow-figurative- physical(Herod's) temple, but rather a "true, literal, non-physical" temple as in Ezekiel's vision (Ezek. 40-48). Both the Ezekiel temple and the Rev 11 temple likely point prototypically to the final temple city in Rev 21. (See Beale in Revelation and The Temple and the Church's Mission)

Preterists on terms of "nearness"--- Preterists insist that words like "soon" and "near" mean that these events must be fulfilled in a near historical time frame. Poythress(The Returning King) and Beale(Revelation) show that words which imply "nearness" in Rev. 1:1,19, 4:1,22:6. actually relate to expressions used in Daniel. Beale demonstrates that the phrase "what must take place in the latter days' (Dan. 2:28, 29 45) shows formula usage in Rev. 1:1,19, 4:1,22:6. Therefore, terms of nearness or words like "hour" or "time" can be better thought of as eschatological terms that relate to an "already-and-not-yet" end-time sense, referring to the "latter days, as used in Heb. 1:1 (See Beale:1999, 152-160).

Partial Preterism and Nero as the Beast --- Arguments using gematria to point to Nero have been proven by most commentators to be weak.

It is evident that the The Apocalypse Code is saying "enough is enough" to the Bible Prophesy movement that we have endured for the past several decades. My hesitancy in having my kids and my friends reading TAC is the scolding tone throughout the book and the tiresome attacks against one person: Tim LaHaye. I've read other books on eschatology that have been more instructive, yet I'm glad this book will potentially reach a much wider audience.

Shows You HOW to Think not WHAT to Think about End Times  Mar 31, 2007
Hank Hanegraaff has been a close friend for many years, but even if I didn't like him half as well as I do or a third as much as he deserves, I would highly recommend this book. If you are a Christian & think you don't have an "End Times" slant, but "just believe the Bible," you need these principles for accurately understanding prophetic scripture just as much as I did more than 30 years ago when I thought the same thing about myself. Unlike most popular End Times pundits, Hanegraaff is not insisting that HIS interpretation of the Bible's prophecies is unique, new, never-before-disclosed, or inspired. To the contrary, he insists that the closer we can get to understanding the text as it was meant by its original authors, delivered to is original audience, & believed by the earliest church, the better we will understand God's plans for the future. Hanegraaff has become exemplary for his ability to take a complicated, hotly disputed subject (word-faith movement, Y2K, the resurrection, etc.) & bringing the best of biblical knowledge, experience, & scholarship into a closely focused, easily remembered instructional paradigm. More than once, beginning probably a decade or more ago, my late husband Bob Passantino & I expressed to Hank that we believed his treatment of this subject could well be the most important service of his entire life. Read this book to gain the PRINCIPLES for understanding prophetic scripture so you can understand for yourself & no longer be dependent on some self-appointed Bible prophet to let you in on the secret.
