Product Description

From Amazon

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


"This is the most successful Christian-fiction series ever."
-- "Publisher's Weekly"

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?

This series started strongly enough to get me hooked, but since then it's gotten worse and worse. Or maybe it's just that it keeps doing the same things over and over.
This is the second half of what should have been a single volume. (The other half is Assassins). Each book spends hundreds of pages building up to an event that any reader of the series knows will occur-events that the book titles themselves telegraph. In Assassins, it's the assassination of the Antichrist. Here, it's his resurrection and overt possession by Satan. The authors attempt to build suspense by making us wait and wait for the prophesied events to occur. What they actually build is frustration. The Left Behind series is built around the premise that everything John of Patmos saw in the vision recorded in Revelation will come true exactly as he saw it. Therefore, all I have to do is remember a few verses of Revelation to know EXACTLY where these two books are headed.
In the hands of a more skillful author, that might not matter. But Assassins and the first 100 pages of this book assume you've never read a mystery novel or watched an episode of, say, Murder She Wrote. A huge chunk of the plot of both books centers around who kills the Antichrist. Assassins gave us two obvious suspects and a face glimpsed in a crowd, who looked like another suspect who is actually miles away. Dorothy Sayers (a fine, Christian mystery writer) would never resort to such an unfair plot trick. Worse, anyone who's ever read a whodunit knows the answer 150 pages before the assassination occurs, and is ready to climb the walls by the time that obvious suspect is confirmed.
Somewhere, someone decided that this was to be a 12-volume series. Presumably that was because 12 is a nice, Biblical number.

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 I've read up through book seven in less than a couple of weeks.
In "The Indwelling", LaHaye and Jenkins continue their captivating series of suspense and end-times storytelling. The plot against Carpathia's life from "Assassins" ends successfully with Carpathia's funeral being attended by millions from around the world. Present at the service is a giant bronze statue of Carpathia that demands that people worship it (Revelation 13:15). However, the crowds do not know that the devil is about to "indwell" Carpathia, just as he did Judas and Cain. While the world falls deeper into the power of Carpathia's orbit, members of the Tribulation Force struggle with personal spiritual matters. Yet again, the Left Behind series keeps its readers turning the pages. So far, this is one of the better books in the series.
I can't wait to find out what happens next. I look forward to reading books eight through 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. It's one lovers of end-times fiction shouldn't miss.

"The Indwelling" will be the last of the Left Behind series that I read. I am not a practicing Christian, so I have read the series for entertainment only, and enjoyed the first few books. The story is strong, but the execution is increasingly weak and the tone maddeningly pedestrian and mean spirited.
Tim LaHaye and his Ed McMahon-like sidekick/co-writer, Jerry Jenkins, clearly have an agenda to sell, and more than that they have a wide yielding ax to grind. It seems that anyone who disagrees with their right wing, literalist mindset will find themselves disguised as nefarious characters in these books. Just a few of their targets-- and these are just the ones I can spot!-- are the U.N. (disguised in these books as the "Global Community"), Roman Catholics, CNN, Arabs, liberals, gays and lesbians, and the B'ahai faith. Even the diplomatic peace process is seen as a front for Satan!
There really isn't much spiritual depths to these books -- although I will credit this volume with some interesting celestial waking dreams that unintentionally pay homage to the New Age. It is standard literalist malarkey -- believe in Jesus or fall to Satan. The weakness of this choice is especially evident in the character of Hattie, who goes from adulterous flight attendant to Antichrist groupie to Patty Hearst type assassin in these books. She steadfastly refuses to give herself to Jesus, long past the point it makes any sense, given the fact that she's working for the Tribulation side. I think this very weak plot point is supposed to suggest female willfullness and pride, but it just remains emblematic of the weak character development and writing.
