Product Description

From Amazon

The success of Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye's fast-paced apocalyptic Left Behind thrillers is built on a straightforward Christian message and a blend of dialogue and action; the 10th installment of the series, The Remnant: On the Brink of Armageddon, sticks to the same proven formula that has captivated legions of fans. It's one month into the Great Tribulation, and a million people gather in the ancient city of Petra to await the foretold "Glorious Appearing." The Global Community loses no time in bombing the city, which is completely engulfed in flames, guaranteeing certain doom for those assembled unless a miracle occurs. In other parts of the world, martyrdom continues for the remnant of believers as Global Community potentate Nicolae Carpathia's thirst for blood escalates. There are lots of slick escapes, plenty of intrigue, some genuinely gory moments, and enough gruesome plagues straight out of the biblical book of Revelation to keep readers turning the pages. When the Chicago believers are forced to scatter and discord breaks out among those gathered at Petra, changes accelerate for the Tribulation Force and other series characters, leaving an ample number of loose ends to be picked up in the next episode. --Cindy Crosby

Product Description

Nicolae Carpathia has his enemies right where he wants them: massed at Petra, a million strong. The Trib Force’s aliases and even their safe houses have been compromised, forcing Rayford, Buck, and all the members to flee for their lives while trying to maintain their overt opposition to the Antichrist. All pretense is gone, even on the part of the Antichrist, as the planet hurtles toward the ultimate showdown between good and evil. A repackage of the tenth book in the New York Times best-selling Left Behind series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not many more left....... June 23 2003
Format:Hardcover
There are around 1 million people at a place called Petra. God has led these people there and promised them safety, food, and water. In addition, He has also promised them that their clothes will never have to be cleaned, repaired, or replaced. Which is a good thing since I'm sure more than one of them soiled themselves as they looked at two huge bombs dropping down on top of them!
"The Remnant" picks up where Desecration left off, and proceeds to steamroll ahead. Unlike the last few books, where the books only covered a very short time span, this book starts at month 43 and continues until month 72 (6 years) of the Tribulation. This should please the many people who had begun to feel like the series was dragging on way too long (however, I have been a fan of all the books, whether they covered two years or two days).
Nicolae Carpathia has a blood-thirst that just cannot be quenched. No matter how many people he kills or has killed, it's not enough for him. He wants more. Unfortunately those pesky little Bowl judgments keep throwing kinks into his plan. To make matters worse, even those who have taken the mark of loyalty (otherwise known as the mark of the beast) are regretting having done so. Many of them realize who they have pledged themselves to, as well as the fact that they cannot undo what they have done. Even those who don't see Carpathia as the anti-Christ tire of his rule and have begun to openly disobey.
If you were put off be the previous three books, this book should be enough to bring you back into the fold. The writing is better than it has been, all of the characters, both new and old, are flushed out a little more, and the suspense from one chapter to the next is still there.

5.0 out of 5 stars The continuing story of those Left Behind... June 2 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
After reading "Conquest of Paradise" by Britt Gillette, I was instantly turned on to biblical end times literature, and I quickly began reading the Left Behind series. From book one, I was totally hooked, and Iï¿ve read up through book ten in less than a couple of weeks.
In "The Remnant", LaHaye and Jenkins return with the popular adventures of the Tribulation Force and the evil rule of Nicolae Carpathia. The setting is one month into the Great Tribulation, and Carpathiaï¿s rule becomes ever more brutal with each passing day. A remnant of Christian believers gathers together in the city of Petra to await the Glorious Appearing of the Lord, and the Global Community quickly bombs the city in an attempt to finish them off. Youï¿ll have to read the book to find out what happens next, but true fans will not be disappointed as the authors continue to weave a thrilling tale. Only two more left!
I canï¿t wait to find out what happens next, and how the authors deal with the battle of Armageddon. I look forward to reading books eleven and twelve, and I encourage other Left Behind fans to pick up "Conquest of Paradise: An End-Times Nano-Thriller" as additional reading. That book got me interested in this series, and what a great book! What "Left Behind" lacks in realism, "Conquest of Paradise" adds in abundance. The prose is much more advanced and the international politics are identical to the current world scene and the war on terror. Peppered with biblical verses, "Conquest of Paradise" will turn even the most hardened skeptics into believers, or at least it will make them think twice. Itï¿s one lovers of end-times fiction shouldnï¿t miss.
Book eleven, "Armageddon" continues the adventures of the Tribulation Force, and the armies of the world will gather together at that fabled location long ago inscribed into our minds by Biblical prophecy. Canï¿t wait to read the rest!

3.0 out of 5 stars Waiting for it to finally finish! May 30 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
"The Remnant" picks up where "Desecration" left off, leaving us waiting and waiting for the action of Armageddon and the series to finally wrap up. I was a big fan of the series during the first several books. Although quite unrealistic in their approach, the Left Behind books present the tribulation in a serial form that is quite entertaining. But I'll have to agree with a number of other reviewers that the series has stretched on far too long, most likely to generate money. The past several editions have rehashed plot segments from previous books, helping to add text and pages to the newest installment. Certainly, they could have finished this series by now.
If you're a fan of end times fiction, I suggest picking up the "Christ Clone Trilogy". The plot's a bit more believable, and you only have three books to buy instead of twelve! Even better is "Conquest of Paradise" which is only one book and presents the most realistic portrayal yet of the tribulation. "Conquest of Paradise" combines the page turning excitement of Left Behind with the technology and realism of "In His Image", "Birth of an Age", and "Acts of God". Readers would do far better to pick up these books instead. By now, I'm not sure whether I'll buy "Armageddon" (book eleven, twelve, seventy-five...?) or not! But I'll go ahead and give "The Remnant" four stars because I like the genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Remnant Book Review May 18 2003
Format:Paperback
The tenth book in the Left Behind series is another masterpiece written by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. Three members of the Tribulation Force risk themselves in Greece to rescue a fellow Trib Force member that has been captured. Rayford and other members of the Trib Force remain in Petra after surviving the horrid attack by Carpathia to annihilate the Jews and fellow believers. In Chicago, the safe house has been compromised and the believers have to scatter to evade destruction. Many try and travel to reach Petra and the Middle East. In New Babylon, Chang continues to provide the Tribulation Force with a mole inside the palace. He provides aliases and information to keep the Trib Force one step ahead of the Anti-Christ.
I loved this book from the moment I opened the front cover. This is another amazing literary exertion from the masterminds behind the Left Behind series. As each book nears the end of time, the stories get deeper, the suspense becomes more unbearable and the cliffhangers wretch your mind. Every time I read one of the books in the series, I always find myself changing my actions in everyday life because I realized I'll never know when my time will come or the world will end.
