Lists with This Book. Aug 03, Amanda rated it liked it. I know that xesecration Left Behind series is controversial among Christians and non-Christians alike, but I appreciate it for what it is. First, to address some claims made against the authors that I really don’t think are fair. One, they are accused of anti-Semitism. Chaim is a Jew.
Tsion anrichrist a Jew. Thousands of converts are JEWS! How can they be anti-Semitic and still have Jews be the most important protagonists in the story? Secondly, they hav I know that the Left Behind series is controversial among Christians and non-Christians alike, but I appreciate it for dessecration it is. Secondly, they have also been accused of being male chauvinists, in part because of Hattie’s character.
Without giving too much away, let me just say that Hattie plays an important role in this installment. Meanwhile, Chloe is still the brains behind the co-op. What I like about the Left Behind series is that it makes the book of Revelation easier to understand.
I tried reading it, but much of it went in one natichrist of my brain and out the other, mostly because I couldn’t make an logical connection between the symbolism and the impact on the earth.
Left Behind, even if it isn’t the best interpretation of Scripture and I know it’s notmakes it easier to understand. I also somewhat admire the way the authors are able to portray the Antichrist. I wouldn’t be able to come up with someone so evil as Nicolae Carpathia. They clearly put a lot of thought behind his character.
What I think could be improved is the fluff surrounding the main events of the story. Each book tends to be about pages, and this one is no exception. Many of the details are really unnecessary to the plot, character development, or theology. In sum, enjoying this series, and will continue to read it. Feb 16, Nate rated it it was amazing. The series is getting pretty interesting now as the AntiChrist is now indwelled with Satan himself and running rampant but God is also flexing his muscles a little bit in an effort to remind Nicolae who’s boss.
Great to see the Christians still remaining faithful and their numbers growing.
The whole scene in and around the temple was pretty interesting. Jul 07, Alyssa rated it really liked it Shelves: Definitely think this is one of the most action filled book in the series. May 04, Naomi Bowen rated it really liked it. Possibly the best one so far. The pace continues to build in this one. You can feel things headed to the climax of Christ’s return.
There are some heartbreaking character deaths – not made easier by knowing they’re in Heaven. He’s in control in these series – as He is in our Possibly the best one so far. He’s in control in these series – as He is in our own lives! Nov 19, Chris Dewar rated it it was ok. Honestly, this book is almost where the series jumped the shark. Add to that an extremely unnecessary arsenal for the good guys. A lot of people are choosing to give their souls to Satan I should keep quiet. Can’t risk my own life after all The series still deserves to be finished, but this could have been better thought out.
Jun 25, Alexander rated it it was amazing Shelves: The 9th book in the Left Behind Series.
Very intense and hard to let go at times. A very easy read and will put a end to any reading slumps you might be having.

Jul 18, Kim Justice rated it it was amazing Shelves: Starting this review is well, easy to say the least. I started reading the first book in this wonderful series just as soon as I heard about them.
Being from a christian home life growing up and as well as my husband and family this was a no brainier. I am going to do one review including the whole series. From the first page of the first book to the last page in the last book, I was not able to put these books down. I grew hunger so to speak for each page. I have always had a great belief in th Starting this review is well, easy to say the least.
I have always had a great belief in the Bible and in my Faith. This series, although some would call fictional, I believe are very close to what will: To read more of my review: Jul 24, Stephanie Ziegler rated it liked it.
Shocked that it took 9 books before people actually started fighting back against this man. I am pretty sure it was this novel and the next one that made me stop reading this series the first time around, so I never “finished it” [even though I “already knew” how it was going to end – the Antichrist defeated and antichris Tribulation Saints reunited with their loved ones in Heaven after Jesus returned].
I think I liked it better this time around, but it still felt like it was lacking something. It had some ‘plot twists’ I did not expect, so I was surprised at some deaths in the book. The cha I am pretty sure it was this novel and the next one that made me stop reading this series the first time thhrone, so I desevration “finished it” [even though I “already knew” how it was going to end – the Antichrist defeated and the Tribulation Saints reunited with their loved ones in Heaven after Jesus returned].
The character development keeps desecratlon up-and-down with the characters. Some new characters are introduced as well; we shall see how much character development they receive before they die [not saying they desdcration just a gut feeling].
It just felt like the book was lacking some kind of emotional oomphthat antixhrist was lacking. I know it is written for a Christian audience, so perhaps that is it. Being written for Christians and the possibility that non-Christians might read it, it is very “clean” in terms of what goes on.
There is no graphic violence, no graphic deaths, and definitely no graphic sex. The Antichrist seems more of a buffoon as opposed to a human body possessed by Lucifer himself. Throbe than rebelling against God, he is no dummy when compared to human beings, that is.
Perhaps it is because he is inhabiting a fallen earth-body, but Lucifer really comes across as incompetent, moronic, and incapable of ruling the world. The authors attempt to present him as twisted and evil incarnate, but the presentation still seems to fall short of how evil and depraved this now-demonic being must be.
I mean, Hollywood does a better job of presenting evil onscreen even in previews for movies. The Antichrist never reached the same “level” of evil and depravity that Hollywood spews out in its movies or you can read about in “true-crime” books. Please do not get me wrong; I do not want to read about that kind of nastiness in a Christian novel [or any other novel, for that matter], but the Antichrist seemed more comical than evil, more “Keystone Kops” than demon-possessed.
I mean, I ‘get it’ – the Bible says to be excellent at what is good and to stay innocent of evil, but I think presenting the Antichrist in such a way as to inspire contempt and disrespect does Christians a disservice; he kills people with reckless abandon in the novels but comes across as being mentally unstable when he does so.
I am going to stop trying to explain it; I just do not think the Antichrist would act or behave how he is presented in the book [well, not every time he is presented in the book].
Perhaps this is how Tim Lahaye really viewed the Antichrist? I do not know, but enough for now. Another thing that “bugged” me had to do with Michael the Archangel. The first time, he talks with Michael the Archangel and Michael kinda apologizes while explaining he is ‘not much of a talker,’ that ‘talking is more Gabriel’s purview’ than Michael’s.
Michael, the Archangel “himself,” is expected to give long speeches to the Christians to encourage them?
