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

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."

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

If you're looking for a quick whats-wrong-with-this review, I've got you.
I had four problems with this:
1. Having all Christian main characters was very, very risky. Give one of them an attribute that's not very godly, and people are going to say "He approves of this in Christians!" Very risky indeed. His solution? Don't take risks. Make every character feel stale and replaceable with the other.
2. The plot would get interesting and then God saves the day. That's not a problem, but it kind of chea

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.

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.

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

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

At this point in the series I am really getting tired of all the characters. There are a few references to the fact that all the seas have turned to blood, and the sun itself has dimmed, but this doesn’t seem to affect any of the Christian believers. Despite the fact that the ominous “Global Community” is supposed to be all knowing and all powerful, the Christian group appears to be able to pull off very large scale trading operations underneath their nose.

Partly, this is because they have a spy

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

After their rescue mission in Greece goes awry, the Trib Force is compelled to leave their Chicago headquarters and disperse around the U.S. and world, still working underground for the faithful remnant of believers left on earth. Petra is being supernaturally protected, but even there the undecided still remain. This is the first book in the series where time actually moves in significant chunks from beginning to end, rather than the days or weeks that have been more common in the plot. The pra ...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.

Co-author Jerry B. Jenkins. #10 in the Left Behind series. This rating applies to #1-#9 as well. I didn't read this entry in the series for several months after it came out, so I had been away from it for awhile. These books do such a good job of telling what will happen based on Biblical passages, and what might plausibly happen, as Lahaye and Jenkins have surmised or inferred from the Bible.

Most striking is the way that God will directly intervene in human events and those who believe will com

I thought this book was amazing! I love how Ming Toy meets Ree Woo and they're already in love...
Nice going Ree. You meet this person at an airport and you know he's thinking how much he loves his new friend and fellow believer. but what he doesn't know is that's Ming is a widow in disguise. This is pretty much the only romantic/sweet moment in this book besides Pinkerton Stevens' death aka Steve Plank. I hated that man from the minute that he came into the series to the moment he supposed

Man this book was a rough read. It was BORING! Maybe it was just me but compared to other books in the series it just didn't seem like the characters in this book were ever going to get from point A to point B! It took me YEARS to read this book! I made multiple attempts to start this book to the point that I lost count. It has been a number of years since I've finished this book but the experience of this book was such that when I mention the series, I always warm readers of this book #10 in th ...more

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.

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

This book is a direct spin-off from the Book of Revelation. It gave me a better understanding of the things to take place. It was thoroughly put together in a novel form with real people, and what those who are left behind will/might face. It opened my eyes and caused me to be more aware of my spiritual walk with Christ, and the importance of living right so as not to be left behind and face all that damnation.

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
