This first in a seven-book series introduces us to protagonists in various stages of religious flux while the world at large is undergoing violent political and social crises. Then, one day a good part of Christendom just disappears. It's The Rapture, and those left on the post-Apocalyptic planet have a harrowing odyssey to look forward to. Listeners familiar with the wildly successful Left Behind series will be on familiar territory here--Christian prophecy manifested in Stephen Kingish fiction. The co-authors write with more respect for the language than King and give us better-defined characters, even in this abridgment, which is spellbindingly read by Dick Hill. He keeps one sympathetic to the characters' moral anguish, concerned with their fates, and thrilled by the fantastic events they participate in. Rarely will you hear any narrator as invested in a text or so excitingly rendering it without ever once falling into excess and melodrama. Y.R.

I have to admit to one and all. I rarely if ever like Christian fiction. I find most of Christian fiction to be poorly written and poorly devised. Read morePublished on Sept. 29 2003 by Amazon Customer

A literary underachievement on the grand scale of a parking ticket. This "Left Behind" knock-off features an utterly forgettable, two-dimensional, stereotypical cast. Read morePublished on March 7 2003 by "ironsage"
