Enjoyed the Series

I enjoyed all the Left Behind books. I kept Looking forward to the next one, did not want the series to end.

Book Glorious Appearing

The book "Glorious Appearing" was shipped quickly and in good condition. It was an excellent book as my husband couldn't put it down.

Best of the series

I read the entire series and reread some of the books to remind myself exactly what happened while awaiting the new releases. I thought Glorious Appearing was the best of the bunch! I loved the imagery and I thought it was a very satisfying ending to the treacherous journey these characters had been on since book 1. It is a Christian book about Revelation so there is Heaven and there is Hell and if you've read all the other books I don't imagine that should be much of a surprise. I loved it and thought it was well worth the read and made me glad I invested the time in this series!

Fair to middling, until the last 100 pages

I have to admit I have read this series since about the time "Soul Harvest" came out, although back then it felt like they were pushing 2 books a year out the door. I believe it's been a year since the release of the last book, Armageddon, the conclusion of which left you thinking that the return of Christ was only moments away. And so, in this reader's humble opinion, you have the first half of the book as basically a continuation of a buildup that has spanned 11 books already, and one that I read dutifully through just to get to the actual Glorious Appearing. The single biggest praise and detraction I can give to this book and those prior are the sheer number of participants involved; on the one hand you have close to (it seems like) 40 characters to keep track of, and while this number slowly dwindles down by the time of this release it gets troublesome trying to keep track of the thoughts of all those people as they watch events unfold, although it gives a solid accounting of several different viewpoints as the story progresses. In addition there are obviously characters that I have connected with and feel more about than others, and so it gets a bit superflous at times. You'll note however that this small complaint didn't slow me down from snapping this book the second it became available. The only other major complaint that I ever had was with the portrayal of Carpathia and the False Prophet, Fortunato. My envisionings of them through reading of the Bible make me believe that they will be far more sinister and dangerous than they are portrayed in the books, which all too often has them behaving like buffoons. Yeah, it's fun to laugh at the bad guys' mishaps, but it starts to turn into the 3 Stooges sometimes. It's about halfway through the book though that the reader will hit the paydirt they've been really yearning for for so long, the return of Christ. I actually held my breath, I mean this is the moment that Christians have awaited for 2000 years and outside the Bible it's never been written about in a way that reads like solid prose narrative (unless you count CS Lewis' "The Last Battle", which yeah, I guess I do count :) ) and I was not let down, especially with the last 100 pages. If for no other reason one should get this book. It was worth the wait and had me yearning for more. It's one thing to be a believer and know that Christ is always with you. It is entirely a new and amazing experience to imagine (as Jenkins has here) what an unbelievable, "is this really happening to me?" thing it would be to see Christ physically standing before you and conversing with you by name. It was wonderful and will be wonderful to experience, and for a taste of it read the last few chapters. I agree with some of the other posters here, this was left wide open at the end for a sequel, which I don't think many of us would mind seeing, especially with the foreboding closing passage of Scripture, "But after these things [Satan] must be released for a l

Glorious Appearing

I couldn't put this book down, especially at the physical appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ. Reading how these characters each react to his coming is a humbling and inspiring to me. Reading this series has helped me with understanding the Book of Revelation and has encouraged me to walk in the Spirit.I would recommend this book to anyone and encourage everyone to read it.
