The books are brilliantly conceived, flawlessly developed, and perfectly executed. The scholarship is incredible. They are so believable and so true to life and scripture, you'll keep saying to yourself, 'It could really happen this way!' Okay, no, I'm not talking about the Left Behind series, I'm talking about The Christ Clone Trilogy by James BeauSeigneur.
I've read Left Behind from book one through nine even though every time I picked up one of the books I'd scratch my head and ask, 'Why can't these guys write a better story? Aren't they aware that their portrayal of the Tribulation is so flawed it makes Christians look like mental midgets and real losers?' But still I read. Then I saw several of the reviews (like this one) talking about how much better The Christ Clone Trilogy is than Left Behind. I wasn't too sure I wanted to start another series about the end times, but I figured at least there are only three books, and I was desperate for something better. I went in with only moderate expectations of The Christ Clone Trilogy, but I had no idea what I was in for. I was TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY! Do yourself a BIG favor. See for yourself.
