Greg Laurie has been called “this generation’s Billy Graham” because his Harvest Crusade events have brought hundreds of thousands to salvation through Jesus Christ. Laurie’s upbeat and relevant message has been brought to nearly every major city in America, along with a host of contemporary Christian musicians and inspiring speakers.
Similar to the Billy Graham crusades of the 60s and 70s, Harvest events end with an altar call that brings hundreds, even thousands, down to the stadium floor to accept Christ’s offer of eternal life. But Greg Laurie’s Christian service doesn’t end with Harvest America; his influence is felt through a collection of groundbreaking books. One of these books, Signs of the Times, is getting a lot more attention lately; primarily because of the current state of our world.
What is “Signs of the Times” about?
The book Signs of the Times by Greg Laurie doesn’t rely on hyped-up prophetic predictions, nor does it make any forecasts of its own, but it does help us interpret today’s headlines through the lens of Scripture. Signs of the Times is subtitled, “What the Bible Says about the Rapture, Antichrist, Armageddon, Heaven, Hell, and Other Issues of Our Day.” One might expect a book that covers this many topics to be a few inches thick, but Signs of the Times is actually a quick read. That’s probably because Laurie doesn’t extrapolate or make his own predictions about the future; he simply clarifies where we are on God’s prophetic time clock.
