TheHarbinger-million-webCharisma House has announced that The Harbinger, a book warning of God’s judgment on America by Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn has officially reached the milestone of 100 weeks on both the New York Times printed and extended best-seller lists. Although falsely and prematurely reported by other media outlets in the last few days, Charisma House was the first to accurately report on this after receiving confirmation from the New York Times.

Published on Jan. 3, 2012, The Harbinger debuted on the New York Times best-seller list its first week of release and has gone into reprint 22 times, selling more than 1.2 million copies. Maintaining momentum through media appearances, enthusiastic readership and a viral video taken at the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Prayer breakfast which garnered more than 500,000 views online, Cahn’s first book has become a catalyst for spiritual growth and part of national discourse in the United States.

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.

“We attribute the success of The Harbinger to something much bigger than ourselves,” said Tessie DeVore, Charisma House Book Group executive vice president. “God has entrusted us with this crucial message, and we are humbled by its vast acceptance and impact.”

“Not only is The Harbinger a publishing phenomenon, it has become a catalyst and rallying cry to pray for America and its leaders,” she added.

The Harbinger is the 11th New York Times best-seller for Charisma House Book Group. Fasting by Jentezen Franklin, 23 Minutes In Hell by Bill Wiese and The Seven Pillars of Health by Don Colbert, MD, have also previously made the list.

Ancillary products expanding on the books premise include The Harbinger Companion Study Guide and The Harbinger Decoded DVD, the official documentary that provides an audio/visual experience for viewers to learn more about The Harbinger’s teachings, Jonathan Cahn and the book’s origin.

Charisma House Book Group has also published the million-copy selling books Jerusalem Countdown by John Hagee and The Bait of Satan by John Bevere.
