Looking for a good series that I can hopefully find posted on pbs for my 18 year old nephew. He has already read the left behind series. I am looking for something like The Homelanders Series by Andrew Klavan.

 "Left Behind" has an adult series and a kids series, so if he's read the adult series I think he could read other Christian adult books?

I'd recommend Frank Peretti is a suspense/thriller Christian author.  Along that same vein are Ted Dekker and Terri Blackstock.

There's also a Left Behind series that came before the more popular one by Mel Odom: ApocalypseDawn, Apocalypse Crucible, Apocalypse Burning.

Ugh! I was just gonna suggest "The Homelanders" series!!!

So has he read that yet?

I read the whole series and loved it!

I would also say that Ted Dekker. He is one of my fav. Christian writers, very suspensful!

He hasn't read the Homelanders Series but  all of the books are WL books and I needed something soon. I think I will give him the Gil Beckman series by W. E. (Wally) Davis. Thanks for your help.

Travis Thrasher has a YA series called The Solitary Tales.

Haven't read it but did just receive the first one.
