Jenkins and LaHaye weave a compelling story of a very believeable potential "going-down" of end times events as prophesied in sacred scriptures of Judeo-Christian faiths. Unforgettable characters are teamed with a thrilling and convoluted plot, timed against the chaotic backdrop of the AntiChrist's rise to power in the post-Rapture world in this well-written continuation of the Left Behind Series. Highly recommended as a work of fiction-this series is hard to put down. Prepare for a case of done-in-a-day reading--and be prepared to want to read them again.
Great Series, hope everyone gets a chance to read this series.
Have to continue on to book 4 for sure. Great series so far and more to come.
So, it is Left Behind 3. The Tribulation Force (fundamentalist terrorist cell) mourns their dead teacher. A nerd builds them all supersecretspystuff. They cry a lot, pray a lot, worry about whether to abort the Antichrist's child, blackmail a closeted lesbian into silence by threatening to out her, fantasize about the mass conversion of Jews to Protestantism, etc. Every fun American city (plus Dallas) is bombed into rubble. A Range Rover almost gets wrecked. A divinely-inspired earthquake happens, and a man who has been locked in an underground bunker comes out and asks someone else, "Was that the great earthquake?" Really! They sold like 12 million of these books. There is no sex (they do kiss a couple times), but there's plenty of spiritual pornography for people who like to imagine their fellow humans slaughtered en masse, for God and stuff. Four and a half stars.
"I read all the adult and all the kids series. I enjoyed them all very much. They helped me to understand the book of revelations better. My daughter is now reading them and really enjoying them, so I am trying to get the whole set of both."
Excellent Series. Read them in order.
