What complete and utter DRIVEL! A virtual magic totem for Red-State America and perhaps a poster child for all that's wrong with the same. Most notorious for being a hackneyed Cash Cow that started with a programmed 4 or 5 book run and turned into over a dozen ( AND counting). Never mind all the useless other gratuitous licensing and overbranding from Left Behind For Kids (? eek!), a couple of r-e-a-l-l-y BAD movies, to a litany of cross marketed junk that would make the baubles & beads that first bought what later became Manhattan Island look like the Hope Diamond. Perhaps the most spurious waste of tree pulp since "Honest Abe" penned his Gettysburg Address. Based of the ridiculous fantasies of the Rapture Cult and their un-Biblical farce called "Dispensationalism". That said I still cannot understand why a bunch of people so hooked on the idea of being mystically whisked away from a doomed Earth would want to read about the poor hapless souls that remain stuck here. What is up with that??????? Inbred smugness?
