Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Jesus returns at last in this 12th novel in the phenomenally popular Left Behind series, vanquishing his foes and ushering in a new millennium of peace and righteousness. Ray Steele is the only member of the original Tribulation Force alive to see it, however, since Buck Williams endures a bloody death in the opening pages. The novel’s pacing suffers greatly from its own foregone conclusion. Antichrist Nicolae Carpathia, once a fearsome and suave foe, is reduced to shrill hysteria in this installment, and seems more of a cartoon character than a credible instrument of Satan. And the final wars (there are four of them in quick succession) add no drama to the plot, since believers are by that point impervious to harm; neither the bullets from the Unity army or the supernatural lightning raining down from the sky can touch the Christian holdouts. It must have been difficult to imagine the words that Jesus would speak on such an occasion, but the authors’ cautious solution-to draw almost solely on the statements spoken by or about Jesus in the New Testament-feels wooden. However, the book is not devoid of humor, and fans of the series will enjoy the gentle, affectionate camaraderie that exists among the excited members of the ragtag brigade of believers. For readers who have stuck with this soap opera through thick and thin, there is a real emotional payoff in seeing the characters’ reunions with their loved ones who died during the Tribulation.

Product Description

Thousands of years of human history stained by strife, death, and sin come to an end when the King of Glory returns to earth. The satisfying conclusion of the seven years of tribulation covered by the Left Behind series portrays the return of Jesus Christ to earth in both glory and judgment at the height of the battle between the forces of evil gathered at Armageddon and the remaining Christian believers at Petra and Jerusalem. A repackage of the twelfth book in the New York Times best-selling Left Behind series.

Glorious Appearing will not dissappoint. I have been a huge fan since Book 1 (Left Behind). I must say I am not a fan of fiction but the effortless blending of a fictional story intertwined with actual Bibical prophecy ...makes this a very unique form of fiction. I was actually somewhat dissapointed that the series would end but happily there is an opening left to further tell this story.The writing was suberb and to me, faith affirming.The authors did a marvelous job of presenting the "glorious appearing".The only negative I could say was I had wished those being reunited with their loved ones(such as Irene) would have been treated more indepth and with greater detail...
Loved the WHOLE series

A lot of the reviews I have read of these books tend to put it down by comparing it to other end of the world books. And while I will admit that these are not as smart or engaging as some of the the better books that cover the same topic like Fire of Heaven or We All Fall Down, I still really enjoyed them. A friend introduced me to the first book and I cut through all 12 books over the past two months. In a way, it's not really fair to compare them to some of the other books because they are trying to do different things. Left Behind seems to me to try to simply tell a great story about the end of the world. It's light, but what's wrong with that? I really felt like I NEEDED to know what was going to happen next when I finished a book and the very next day would order the next one. I call that a success. A book like We All Fall Down is obviously much more intense and thoughtful, the characters seem much more like real people, and it gives you more to think about, but why does that make Left Behind bad? Can't The Ten Commandments and The Passion both be good movies?

A check of the booklist on the first few pages of The Glorious Appearing foretells a prequel and a sequel.
Although I read all the previous books of the Left Behind series after being introduced by the movies starring Kirk Cameron, I resisted reviewing the books because the review would have been negative with not much to balance my opinion.
With The Glorious Appearing, however, I decided it was time to summarize my thoughts of this book and the series.
First, the authors are primarily writers of religious and spiritual non-fiction. The authors are no Frank Peretti (This Present Darkness, Piercing the Darkness), C.S. Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters), or Stephen King (The Stand). Therefore, their attempt at fiction through the Left Behind series has both its good points and bad points.
The Good of the Left Behind Series:
The characters. The writers have imagined a large cast of characters, biblical and non-biblical, and revealed enough of their backgrounds, relationships, inner turmoils, and transformations to cause the reader to care about their struggles and what happens to them during the course of each book. The characters are what cause the reader to pursue the stories to the end (or supposed end) despite the limitations and irritations of the writing style. Which brings this review to...
The Bad of the Left Behind Series:
The writing style. While the first two books of the series, Left Behind and Tribulation Force are bearable, the subsequent books, #3-11, reveal a writing style that is extremely irritating and dismaying. The stars would range from four for the first two books down to two and one stars for the books following.

As a fan of the entire series, I wondered how the authors would end this.There is nothing like watching a series of movies only to find that the sequels are not done as well. Well I admit, there is a little something missing, but the on the whole, it was the characters that I wanted to follow. They were interestingly drawn and likeable. Some seemed to be ordinary people who were drawn in extraordinary times and seemed to be albe to live up to their potential. The evil continues all around and still these people try to their best for each other and support each other. I am not a born again Christian, and not necessarily all that religious. I enjoyed the series for what it was, a good series of well written stories. Some times the story gets a little too preachy as does the series, but it tries to follow the story of the Book of Revalations. It is a fitting end to the series, and when you are done, you close the book and smile, knowing that the charactes you have followed for so long, finally have gotten the long awaited rewards and punishments that they have deserved. It is simplistic but very readable, and for an ending where God is in their midst, it is explained to a believable degree. I enjoyed this end to the series as I have the whole series.

I read all of these books on audio tape. I thought that the text was a little elementary, besides the actual bible quotations, but all in all a good series. I liked the fact that there were so many books - you could really attach yourself to a character.
I was so excited to see that the last one was out, and I couldn't wait to finish the series!!
I was very let down. The last book was very very boring. I felt that there was pretty much no story, and it repeated itself so many times, I wondered if I'd put the same tape in again!
And the fact that the whole first side of the first tape was the last side of the last tape of Armageddon was very irritating.
I did like hearing that everyone came back in the end, and I wished that they'd spent more time on that, rather than Jesus speaking about himself so much.
It was hokey and I feel like Tim LaHaye and Jerry B Jenkins were tired of writing this story, so they threw together the last book, with as little effort as possible.
I would still recommend the series, but maybe suggest that you imagine the ending, instead of acutally reading it!
