My Christian yahoo reading group is going to start this series in January as a group read. We're going to do all 12, one every other month. My problem is, I can't seem to find any study/discussion questions. Anyone know of somewhere to get some? I found one site that had some discussion stuff but it seemed to only relate to one of the books, like book 6 or something which doesn't help.
Thanks! (btw, you're ALL welcome if you want to come join!)

Tyndale has some book discussion guides for the first ten books of the series that are available as free pdf downloads. Click on this link Tyndale.resources and then you have to click on each book, and then click the discussion guide assets. I checked out a few and they seem to be three or four page-long discussions.

 In addition, you might find the book, “Rapture, Revelation, and the End Times – Exploring the Left Behind Series” helpful. I have not read it yet, but I have acquired it for my own research. My wish list includes a dozen or more books concerning the rapture as I examine the eschatology including that promoted in the Left Behind fables.

 One of my favorite sources for reading guides; www.readinggroupguides.com doesn’t seem to have any directly on the Left Behind Series but does have one on “The Rapture Exposed” by Barbara R. Rossing that might be helpful as a facet in the study of the series since Rossing presents a variant viewpoint from LaHaye and Jenkins. I guess it all depends on how deeply you want to probe the stories.

Thank you so much. that's exactly what i was looking for. I had checked the reading group guides and didn't see anything. i think this could be a very intense book club read, that's why we're only doing one book every other month. I'm very excited though!
