Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins (Review)

  • Series: Left Behind (Book 1)
  • Paperback: 496 pages
  • Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.; Reprint edition (March 16, 2011)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1414334905

An airborne Boeing 747 is headed to London when, without any warning, passengers mysteriously disappear from their seats. Terror and chaos slowly spread not only through the plane but also worldwide as unusual events continue to unfold. For those who have been left behind, the apocalypse has just begun.

A repackage of the New York Times best-selling novel Left Behind.

My Review:

I thought this book engaging and interesting. It held my attention from the beginning. The subject of the end times and what might happen is very popular. One of the theories is that the rapture happens before Jesus comes back. In this book the rapture happens and people are just gone. The ones left behind are trying to figure out what happened. Some realize and know it. Some are Christians that think they are okay but are not. The book felt realistic on how things would be in the world in the aftermath of a major event. I read it as fiction not a guide on the end times. I thought it was an overall good read.  My Uncle has read the entire series and loved them. Recommended especially to fans of this genre.
