Yes, you read that right. Hal Lindsey is known for his comic-book theology behind his books - The late great planet earth and Satan is alive and well on planet earth. Those books have done more to destroy premillenial truth than all the works of amills, preterists, and postmills combined. Yet, the basis of his books is firmly rooted in Augustinian methodology. Augustine looked around and did not see the kingdom of God the way it was believed by Christ, the apostles, and the fathers prior to him. He looked at the political environment and came to the conclusion that it must be the nature of the kingdom that was misunderstood. After researching the writings of men like Origen (whose theology was Arian or Jehovah's Witness like), he adopted a new interpretation method. So the idea of eschatology based on media is really attributed to Augustine.
