Features one of the most awesomely-bad sentences I've ever read: "The perverse nightmare of the sheer volume of it lay atop him longer than the orange ball rode his eyeballs."
Pamela Hubbard
The Great Tribulation continues and the Tribulation Force is now scattered all over the world as they lose their safe house. Various members go on different missions and the group at Petra continues to bask in God's favour and provision.
The first half of the book dragged...the same story went on and on and I think the first half of the book only covered 2 days. Then, the second half sped on, flying through different tribulations like darkness, sun flares, etc. I felt like the authors were tryin

This was a very interesting book. It really grabbed and held my attention! I kept looking for spare moments to pick it up to see what was going to happen next. It is filled with action and suspense. It embraced joy and astonishment at the power of God. It made me feel the awe! It was very realistic, and seemed quite close to Revelations. It is filled with countless surprises, and never failed to keep me guessing and wanting more.

It's very clean, though there was some violence. There were a coup

I once found this book at Costco and decided to read it, even though it was the tenth book in the series and I hadn't read the nine books preceding it. It was okay. At the time, I didn't know it was Kirk Cameron's love child. If I had known that, I would have read it with a more critical eye. Still, it wasn't super preachy, so I didn't hate it.
I started reading this series for the fiction appeal and really enjoyed the first 4 or 5 books. I kept reading them because I felt that I needed to finish the story and up until now I have enjoyed them a little. I did not like this one at all though. In between sermons the characters were put in impossible situations that they keep getting out of because they are being protected by God. Things like bullets and missiles shooting through planes no matter what they do doesn't appeal to me because t ...more

More of the adventures of the righteous in the days after the rapture. Competently written fantasy that is meant to be taken literally. I couldn't bring myself to force down another of these, so stopped here.
In general I have been enjoying this series, but this one seemed kind of like the authors just threw it together. In many of the other books, the time was drawn out (perhaps too much in some places), and one book might cover a few days or a few months. This one spans several years and tends to abruptly jump around in time. Every few chapters, you get an update: "Four years into the tribulation..." "Five years into the tribulation..." "Six months later..." and so on.

This again, was another poorly-written work by Jenkins. I will not fault Tim LaHaye for the mistakes of the one who is supposed to be the best-selling NYT author. He should know better.

Nearly all throughout, the events that the Tribulation Force endure are thinly-contrived; merely tossed in so as to give them something to do. Jenkins takes too many liberties with plausibility, and almost seems to forget that his readers are not morons. I got highly irritated with his way of "preaching" to the re
Another nail-biter. It moved me to tears how many times God's people were miraculous saved, through fire, through the earth opening up and swallowing their enemies, through angels, etc. As one whose past continues to come back to haunt me, I was greatly comforted when an angel in the book said to a believer in the middle of the enemy (who were frozen like by a pause button and could not hear or see the incident) "Do not fear, dear sister...God is with you... Be encouraged. Be of Good cheer. Your ...more
This was actually a good story,with alot of action.I enjoyed reading it.The fact that people actually believe this is going to happen is a little disturbing to me though!I've been approached by enough religious zealots,with their shiny crazed eyes to be disturbed!But it's good fiction and worth reading.

This is such a long sega, I wish that they could have put a few of the books togeather. I am starting to get board when I should be so elated that I have only one book left.

Carpathia, self-proclaimed ruler of the world has unleashed a terror against Petra, leaving the people saved and undecided in the biggest threat of their lives. But as this man kills and destroys, miracles and hope are endlessly brought to the remnant, the ones who are left in Israel. Meanwhile a rescue mission involving a hostage is in the air as the newest member of the Tribulation Force is being held for answers.

In the midst of it all is protection and grace shown in its mystery, but will al
I'm really beginning to get tired of this series. At this point, I'm only reading them in order to finish the series because I've already committed so much time to get to this point, I might as well finish the last two. The writing in these books is average at best and substandard most of the time. The dialogue is annoying and unrealistic and, at times, difficult to follow. there is a whole conversation between Leah, Hannah, and Rick that is nearly impossible to follow as to who is talking. Also ...more
The Remnant , book ten of the Left Behind Series, begins with a miracle reminiscent of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego's story as the million believers gathered at Petra come through a bombing unscathed. Actually, a few among their number are not yet believers but have not taken the mark of the beast. Many accept Christ after they are miraculously saved from the fire.

Tsion, Rayford, and Chaim become the leaders of the largest group of the faithful left on earth. This poses its own problems sinc
I didn't enjoy this book, and stopped reading the series at this point. The books went downhill fast after the third or fourth book, which is shame. The authors have a nice writing style, but they lack ideas. They preach to their readers, their characters are literally invincible because of God's protection, and it's getting more and more difficult to relate to the characters. The authors have more filler than anything else. They drag scenes on well past the point they should've ended. I stand b ...more

The 10th installment in Left Behind, "The Remnant", moves us ever closer to the final face off between Carpathia & the Tribulation Force. LaHaye this time around shows the build up of the believers in Petra which contains the remnant of the Jewish faith & shows the continual plans to keep trying to convert people into believers. We also see the determined plans of the Carpathia regime to have people worship his image & take the mark of the beast. This novel is a bit more graphic in n ...more
Evident that God provides for his people sparing them from the suffering of the unbelievers, Tsion's encouraging voice can be heard throughout causing rejoicing among the believers. Carpathia and his evil constituants were not pleased when their efforts to destroy the gathered believers at Petra failed. Carpathia calls Leon to appoint others to perform great stunts in an effort to further bring more devotees to worship his image. He steps up his tortuous punishment regime for the Jewish people i ...more
This book had such a slow start to it that I thought I would be highly disappointed. Just keep going with it though, because the second half of the book is much more interesting than the first. Things are really coming to a head as we near the end of the Tribulation. All of the water in the oceans and now the rivers and lakes have turned to blood, causing thousands and thousands of deaths. The million Jews at Petra are saved by God from an attack by the GC, yet many are still doubtful as to whom ...more

This novel is a very enjoyable idea of what the last few years of the Great Tribulation might be like. Unfortunately, the first part of the book is a little slow and the end seems equally rushed. That being said, the reader is still left looking forward to what's ahead, just like after the previous installments.
Left Behind Series #10 Lots of action and suspense in this one. The Trib Force had to move out of their safe house building in Chicago and dispersed across the world. The Antichrist is killing everyone that he can that won't take his mark & bow down to him. The 3rd bowl is the turning of the lakes & rivers to blood, after that the oceans turned back to salt water. The 4th bowl was the sun heating up and burning up everything except it didn't hurt the believers. Now the 5th bowl is the to ...more
Carpathia has his enemies where he wants them: massed a Petra, a million strong — within reach of two bombs and a missile no one could survive without a miracle.

The Trib Force’s aliases and their Strong tower safe house have been compromised, so Rayford, Buck, and all members have to flee for their lives.

Things are coming to a head and more woes are scheduled to be poured out on the inhabitants of the Earth.
This tenth book in the Left Behind series is just as good as the preceding work
Really need to read this series close together time-wise. If not, need to re-read the previous book right before. I couldn't remember enough of Desecration to really get into the story. Dragged a lot at first, but the end was pretty good.
It is so amazing to me when, during my Bible study, verses come up that were 'acted out' in this series. The authors did such a good job bringing these prophesies to "life".
As much as I love this series, it is becoming almost troubling to read...and scary.
I enjoyed seeing the characters gather at Petra and finally meet. I wished there would have been a bit more focus on the undecided in Petra; when they finally decided, I found things to be a bit too generic. You get to know Satan as Carpathia more, whom I found to be a bit too childish for my taste. I would think he'd be more adult in his manipulation and slaughter than his childish excitement for beheadings. I'm still not used to the books randomly skipping time, from one book lasting a couple ...more
After getting wrapped up in the characters and feeling the need to find out what happens to them was the only reason I continued to read all the books in the series. The authors definately knew how to draw someone in and keep it just entertaining enough for them not to put it down and never think of it again - barely. I read the series for it's fiction appeal, not the biblical meanings, so was a bit disappointed in the writings. If the authors had cut some of the scripture and backstory each boo ...more

Just finished Tim LaHaye's book "The Remnant". It's the 10th book in the "Left Behind" series.

While I really liked the book I could only give it a 4 out of 5 stars for 1 glaring reason. It got a bit carried away with a "preachy" type of story-line. Overload on biblical quotes bogged down the read. I felt if those could have been dialed back some the read would have flowed better. The story would have still told well on it's own after that change.

Well written and very interesting to say the least
This was another great installment in the Left Behind series. The first two-thirds of the books were exciting, thrilling, and suspenseful. Also, I was surprisingly moved and saddened by Steve Plank's storyline here. His conversation with his friend Vasily just before his death up until he died was powerful and completely touched me. I was even saddened by Vasily's subsequent suicide. My reason for only giving 4 stars was because of the last third of the book where I felt that even though so many ...more

I loved left behind, I like the story, not sure I agree with their all their interpretations of verses in the Bible, but I like this story, it is entertaining.
Lee Anne
A little better-paced than last 2 offerings. Still trite conversations! Nice use of scripture in "teaching sessions" by a couple of the characters.
