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

Synopsis

The second half of the seven-year Tribulation era begins as Rayford, Buck, Chloe, and the other members of the Tribulation Force reveal who killed Nicolae as the time of God's judgement approaches.

This series started out with a terrific premise, and the first three books weren't bad. OK, Jenkins writes fiction about as well as an average 15 year old, and his characters are uni-dimensional and cartoon-like, but a good premise can drive a series like this and drive it well.
The big problem is that this series should have been done in three or four volumes. That would have been its natural length, and that the authors have chosen to stretch it into who knows how many volumes--at this point seven and counting--seems merely a reflection of their greed. Their audience is already addicted to the series, so they choose to milk the readers along, presumably to extract the maximum commercial return.
In terms of the works themselves, the later volumes, purely and simply, are boring. And badly written. Jenkins seems to think nothing of having his characters do things that on the basis of their personalities they would never do. The authors didn't bother with even the most basic research on the technical side. So they come up with absurd gagets that they use to drive the story--incredible cell phones that never run out of batteries, are totally secure and can be used even at 30,000 feet, etc. Perhaps worst of all, their Christianity is simple-minded--the reverse of thoughtful and wise.
All in all, the series has become an exercise in underwhelming readers while ripping them off. Aside from this being rather unbecoming of two writers who fancy themselves seriously spiritual, it makes for the most mediocre of writing. While the authors continue to claim that they have written the most popular fiction series in history, do yourself a favor and leave this thing in the stores.

I found this installment of the series to be superior to most, especially book 6 Assassins, much to my surprise.
It's not for everyone. The writing shifts quite a bit. Only 3 days of time pass and very little of the book of Revelation, the guideline for the series, unfolds. Think of this as "half time" in a football game before the bigger, badder you ain't seen nothing yet anti-christ starts to run wild. There's a lot of action but not as much of the earth shaking variety that some readers have come to expect. Mostly the action is in getting everyone back together. That's pretty much the theme of this book. The characters get back together geographically and get themselves back together on a spiritual level and on an emotional level with each other. There's a lot of soul searching and repentence and a lot of questions, not all cut and dry. The level of spirituality is deeper.
I also appreciated that there was no big cliffhanger. Too many cliffhangers, especially since the books only come out once every 6 months, can be frustrating. The devoted readers of this series can relax until the next installment.
As with previous books there are character deaths, mostly as a consequence of a single action, and we get to see those consequences. I'm more intrigued with this series after seeing the authors on Larry King Live and learning that only 1 character will survive to the end. That was shocking. I expected it to be out of the old Star Trek mode where there are lots of deaths, usually the guest star for that episode, but never the big four. This book will take a different, more realistic tact based on the time of the writing -- the end times.
I look forward to seeing what will happen.

I am not interested in debating LaHaye's and Jenkins' theories on the tribulation, fundementalism, Christianity, etc. Suffice it to say that if you are not a Christian, and/or do not believe in a literal interpretation of Revelations than this series is not for you (although you likely already knew that).
The bigger problem is that, despite having an exciting storyline (and noone can argue that a literal interpretation of Revelations moves pretty quickly), this series is probably the worst-written adult series in history. And I am not given to superlatives.
Two repeating problems throughout the series include: 1) The authors have clearly done no research outside reading the Bible. Despite scenes taking place throughout the world, different countries are completely non-descript and interchangeable. The authors rely on advanced technology that they are clearly clueless about (compare to Tom Clancy for an example of how technology can be written. That amount of detail isn't necessary, but more than "He dialed on his cell phone, which could not be traced and had a long-lasting battery" would be beneficial). 2) The characters have no personalities and, therefore, no ability to relate to each other beyond "He loved her because she was his wife." This is particularly evident in the authors' inability to develop conflict between characters. This problem was most clearly seen in the second book, where a misunderstanding about who sent Chloe flowers led to a 75 page standoff. (For fun, do this exercise: go up to someone and say, "I'm angry about the flowers." That person, unless s/he is a total moron, will say, "What flowers?" You respond, "The flowers you sent me." They will respond, "I didn't send you flowers.
