Product Description

From Amazon

Antichrist. The very word send shivers through us. And Nicolae Carpathia certainly does not disappoint as Antichrist. Nicolae is the third book in Left Behind series written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, and is preceded by book one, Left Behind, and book two, Tribulation Force.

Nicolae Carpathia becomes the focus as he continues to consolidate his power, unifying political states ("Global Community"), media ("Global Community Network," "Global Weekly"), and religions ("Enigma Babylon One World Faith") under a Nicolae-appointed supreme pontiff. Nicolae himself is grand potentate of the global community.

Our heroes, pilot Rayford Steele and journalist Buck Williams, along with the rest of the Tribulation Force, continue their struggle to survive and protect their families in the midst of global war and destruction. They have come to recognize Nicolae Carpathia to be the Antichrist prophesied in the Bible, and to them it comes as no great revelation that this man, who presented himself as a charming and benevolent leader, has been unmasked as a ruthless and cruel tyrant, manipulating people and events to serve his own ends. And his ends are undoubtedly evil.

It becomes apparent that the chaos and turmoil created by Nicolae are the fulfillment of John's prophesy of the seven seals as recorded in the book of Revelation. And it becomes also apparent they are now facing the sixth seal, a great earthquake which is sometimes called "the wrath of the lamb." This upheaval of the earth, with its accompanying death and destruction, is familiar apocalyptic imagery: a blood-red moon, a sun turned black, and the stars falling from the sky. And the Tribulation Force discovers that these incredible descriptions turn out to be not so very far from the truth.

Who survives? How? What does Nicolae have in mind for the world? Readers of the first two books should not be disappointed with this third installment to this chilling tale.

From the Back Cover

Global Community forces shatter U.S. cities. Carpathia promises peace, urges global unity. Military vows to eliminate insurgent 'Tribulation Force'. In the two years since millions vanished in an instant, a new world order has risen from the rubble. Tension crackles as the strangely enthralling leader Nicolae Carpathia consolidates his power over the new Global Community. Heads of state, financial and religious leaders, and even the media cower before Carpathia, reduced to puppets of his regime. Only pilot Rayford Steele, journalist Buck Williams, and the rest of the Tribulation Force know Carpathia for what he truly is--a dictator intent on snaring the world in his web of deceit. Amid personal heartbreak and the bloodshed and chaos of World War III, the Tribulation Force must stop him at any cost. Evil has a name: "Nicolae"--#3 in the phenomenal "New York Times" best-selling Left Behind series that rocked the publishing world and made millions think seriously about the future and their places in it. With special features relating to current events and end-times prophecy. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The third installment of the Left Behind series starts at the begining of the tribulation. After the start of World War III, the Tribulation Force struggles for survival as Nicolae Carpathia (The Antichrist) unleases his war machine against those who oppose the newly formed Global Community (formally the UN). Adding a particularly good twist to the story. two of the core members of the Tribulation Force are now employed buy the Antichrist creating a high amount of tension that serves to be very infomative for the reader. The members of the trib force in this third installment are now without a leader due to their previous leader dying under mysterious conditions. The book escalates and proves to be a page turner that you will find difficlut to put down. Action and suspense are ever present, as the reader is taken to locales such as Iraq were the throne of the antichrist is, Chicago, and a harrowing escape/rescue from Isreal which is perhaps some of the best suspenseful writing of our time.

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?

The Tribulation Force now knows that Nicolae Carpathia is the Antichrist described in John's Book of Revelations, the final book in the New Testament. It is obvious to readers from the beginning that he is, but the scenes in which he takes control of worldwide leadership are shocking.
The Book of Revelations reveals seven seals that are the prelude to the last seven years of the End Times. Buck Williams, still able to maintain his lucrative position as headline writer, publishes a stunning article entitled "The Wrath of the Lamb" just before the worldwide earthquake (seal number six) flattens mountains, opens or closes streams, brooks, and lakes, and reduces the size of land mass by enveloping great sections in the churning chaos of the sea. This is prophesized by John the Revelator. These descriptions, I thought, were well written.
One of the main aspects of Nicolae's power is owning the media. Current laws do not allow one conglomerate to own controlling interests in radio, television, newspapers, magazines, or production companies. The Antichrist brings a large populace into his fold with promises and mind control. However, he owns it all. He combines all religions into one Global Religion under his appointed Supreme Pontiff, and takes on the tile of Grand Potentate of the Global Community.
While I was reading this book, there were recent political and communication changes in the United States that may allow a single entity to own more media control. These current changes made me wonder if a path is in the works for a single man to govern the world.
Again, the characters are underdeveloped. Rayford Steel marries a woman just introduced in this book while Chloe and Buck finally tie the knot.

This book was amazing! You don't have to be religious to enjoy Tim Lahaye and Jerry Jenkins 3rd book in the Left Behind series. Put together a pilot, a news reporter, and a couple of inter-related people and you have yourself the Tribulation Force. The one thing they all have in common is that they all work under one man. Nicolae Carpathia. The most powerful person in the world after the disappearances and who the Force believes to be the anti christ. They must stay together in order to stay alive and keep a strong faith in God. But one problem. Carpathia doesn't know that they know each other and doesn't know how deep their religion goes. As he slowely destroyes the world with his new laws and economic systems the force fights to save lives, including that of the world renowed scientist Dr. Ben Judah who vanished after his families murders and is being hunted by many islamic martyrs. Tim Lahaye and Jerry Jenkins work together to create an awesome book on religion and the bibles talk of revelations. Both of them really know how to write a book and draw you in! If you had to pick one of the books in the series to read this would be the one! This one has the most drama, adventure, and interesting facts on a common religious belief of the ending of the world.
