The Antichrist is dead... or is he? The city of Chicago lies in ruins, the safe house is blown, and the Global Community police are hot on the heels of the Tribulation Force. And who assassinated Nicolae Carpathia? It's a formidable challenge to keep the attention of an audience midway through a projected 12-volume series, but with their trademark blend of humor and gripping suspense, authors Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye continue to captivate readers with The Indwelling, the seventh installment of the Left Behind series. Carpathia's funeral takes a hair-raising turn for the 4 million people who attend. Over the crowd looms the centerpiece of a new world religion, a 24-foot bronze statue of Carpathia, belching black smoke and demanding obedience. Woven through the fast-paced drama are the ongoing stories of people struggling amid the end-times mayhem: Chloe Williams wrestles with the moral implications of killing her toddler Kenny to avoid having him fall into enemy hands; her father Rayford Steele is brought face-to-face with the consequences of his pride. Dr. Chaim Rosenzweig, a prominent Jewish Israeli statesman, ponders a conversion to Christianity. The strength of the series comes from Jenkins's ability to keep the action moving and readers caring about the characters. And there's a hook: The end of The Indwelling promises, "If the last three and a half years are your idea of tribulation, wait until you endure the Great Tribulation." The bad news is just beginning. But, the Tribulation Force believes, good news is also on the way. --Cindy Crosby

Review of "The Indwelling" The beast takes possession.

I have read the whole series of "Left Behind". I had to wait for the next book in the series to come out. It was quite difficult to wait but well worth it. I enjoyed every one of the books.

I don't want to be "LEFT BEHIND"

Two Thumbs up to these authors for their heavenly inspiration of what life may be like if you are not ready the first time around. It is so refressing to see Christian authors in the spot light. I completed all seven of the books and wanted more, so I have started reading the "Left Behind series for Kids". They are just as good. They even include the main characters from the adult series. In less than a week I completed 4 out of the 8 books, which are less than 150 pages each. I have gotten my kids interested in them, and they love them. I tell my kids I HAVE to read the books before they do(smile). I truly believe we are in the end-times and that these books will be a tool to cause many people to really think about where their lives are going. If you want to get a person started reading this series, just give them the first book and they are hooked. I have not read books so intensely since "Piercing the Darkness" and "This Present Darkness" by Frank Peretti. Any book that makes people think about being left behind after Christ returns is a must read. Also the Left Behind series is written by experts. It is a fictious story written around true facts. ENJOY, but be ready to examine yourself...

Absolutely Magnificent!

I pre-ordered this book in March. When it finally came, the power in my city was out due to a bad storm. Propped up against a window for light, I devoured this book as if it was my last meal. LaHaye and Jenkins are truly gifted. If you like the other 6 books, then you will definitely love this one.

Already finished it and eager for more!

I bought The Indwelling at lunch yesterday and could not put it down until I finished it last night! For all of the readers who rated the series negative for lack of action, this book has lots of it. The AntiChrist is dead, Rayford is on the run as the prime suspect, and you don't find out who did kill Carpathia until over halfway through the book. If readers would remember that this is fiction based on the Bible, I believe they would be more satisfied with the series. I am eagerly awaiting The Mark!


The Indwelling is the seventh book for the Left Behind series and it is absolutely overwhelming in the excellence of the writing of this book. The authors keep you turning pages throughout the entire book. There isn't one single boring part in this book. You will not be disapointed with the continuation of Assassins. You finally find out who killed Carpathia, and what is happening with the dangerous situations the characters that watched the assassination. I eagerly wait for the next book, The Mark, coming out on Nov. 14 this year.
