Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prophetic novel, The Harbinger, has once again topped the weekly fiction best-sellers list. The list from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association tracks sales for the week ending April 28, according to Pubtrack Christian data.
Subtitled “The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future,” The Harbinger is published by FrontLine, an imprint of Charisma House. The book traces a series of detailed parallels between what has happened in the United States since the 2001 terrorist attacks—including the economic collapse—and Israel’s history after it turned away from God. Told in fictional narrative, the book unfolds how nine signs concealed in recent events reveal God’s progressive judgment.
Released Jan. 3, the book has gone to reprint four times and hovered on the top ten of Amazon’s top 100 best-seller list for several days. It is the first New York Times best-seller for Cahn.
“We are thrilled that The Harbinger debuted on two New York Times best-seller lists simultaneously. The premise of the book has impacted the lives of many who have been gripped by the uncanny scriptural parallels to what’s happened in current events since the Sept. 11 attacks,” said Tessie DeVore, book group executive vice president at Charisma House. She also added, “This is a timely message for our nation and a rallying cry for Christians to pray for America.”
Raised in a Jewish home, Cahn became an atheist before accepting Christ as Messiah as a 20-year-old. Since 1988 he has led Jerusalem Center/Beth Israel, a worship center in Wayne, N.J., one of the country’s largest Messianic congregations. Through his Hope of the World ministry, he has ministered in Cuba, Nigeria and India.
