Amazon.de

Piloting his 747, Rayford Steele is musing about his wife Irene's irritating religiosity and contemplating the charms of his "drop-dead gorgeous" flight attendant, Hattie. First Irene was into Amway, then Tupperware, and now it's the Rapture of the Saints--the scary last story in the Bible in which Christians are swept to heaven and unbelievers are left behind to endure the Antichrist's Tribulation. Steele believes he'll put the plane on autopilot and go visit Hattie. But Hattie's in a panic: some of the passengers have disappeared! The Rapture has happened, abruptly driverless cars are crashing all over, and the slick, sinister Romanian Nicolae Carpathia plans to use the UN to establish one world government and religion. Resembling "a young Robert Redford" and silver-tongued in nine languages, Carpathia is named People's "Sexiest Man Alive." (This reviewer, a former People writer, finds this plot twist plausible.) Meanwhile, Steele teams up with Buck Williams, a buck-the-system newshound, to form the Tribulation Force, an underground of left-behind penitents battling the Antichrist.

Ex-presidential candidate Pat Robertson briefly outsold Michael Crichton with his apocalypse novel The End of the Age (now available on audiocassette), and the similar The Third Millennium sells well, but the Left Behind series is the absolute champion in the race to make the Book of Revelation into racy thriller reading. --Tim Appelo -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

After millions of people around the world vanish in one moment, in what many claim to be the Rapture, Rayford Steele begins a search for the truth amidst global chaos. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Even though there are almost 1400 critics already, I can't help adding my own two pennies worth...
I had high hopes for this series when it first came to my attention; it sounded just like what I was looking for, the Biblical end-times put into a fictional plot, so that one could get a better grip of what it might be like. After reading van Kampen's "The Sign" (which is good, but hard-going and a non-fictional analysis) I thought LaHaye and Jenkin's concept might make a nice change.
Well, I must say that the whole CONCEPT of the book strikes me as really good. There are such brilliant ideas in there, such genuninly good bases for exciting plots and stories - but they all get butchered by abyssmal writing and a complete lack of developing either the characters or the story to just a margin of their potential. Either the story moves along much too fast and without any insight into the development of what the characters experience during all these horrific scenarios (i.e. wittnessing the chaos on earth after the Rapture, Buck's (non-)reaction when he sees his friend being blasted to bits by a bomb etc.) or the conversation/plot moves round and round in the same circles all the time (i.e. Chloe's process of becoming a Christian, Rayford and Hattie's (non-)relationship etc.). The charcters are all so under-developed that I simply couldn't care for them at all. But quite apart from that, I found the whole style of writing so stilted and immature, that it reminded me of a highschool paper rather than a novel...
I am usually a great fan of series, because you get to visit and re-visit the same "people" all the time, sharing a bit of their "life" and "fate".

This book and its sequels comprise the most pitiful excuse for "Christian" writing that I have ever come across. I read them (forced myself after the first few pages of this first volume) at the request of a family member who wanted my opinion about the series. He had begun his reading of the series rather enthusiastically, then became increasingly disillusioned as the saga, with its absurd and boring set of characters, plunged deeper and deeper into indescribable idiocy. This would make excellent sleep-inducing material for insomniacs to read, except that it's so infuriating to know that such horrible writing is being bought and gobbled up by earnest, well-meaning Christians. What kind of message do they think stuff like this is sending to the rest of the world? That everyone had better become a Christian with a particular set of beliefs about the "end times"? I think not. I'm afraid that LEFT BEHIND's message is, instead, that Christians are foolish, frightened, rather uninteresting people, or....even worse...smug and self-righteous folks who want those who don't agree with them on every point to see what horrors are in store for them. This is very different from the message that I believe we're supposed to glean from the Bible: one of compassion and love toward our fellow man and an awareness that none of us is perfect. Oh, and by the way, it's too bad we aren't given the option of *no* stars, or even more fitting: MINUS five stars!

what a FALLACY ! what an OFFENCE of HUMANITY, REASON and MORALITY !
This "book" is just plainly BAD. Motive - religious delusion, Language - simplistic redneck level, Plot - complete fraud, Characters - cheap comics, Writing skills - oh, boy ! , Message - none, Lessons learned - keep away from religion or you'll end up reading and believing this nonsense....

This book is the only one in the series that comes ANYWHERE close to being a good read. For me, there was something oddly addictive about it, and even though I knew it was pretty bad writing I'm embarrassed to admit I let LEFT BEHIND #1 hook me into buying several of its sequels--- each of which became progressively lamer. Jenkins's writing skills(?) are really pretty bad, and the way they've ended each book with a "cliff-hanger" to lure the reader into buying the next has seemed more and more cynical and calculated. As a Christian, it's pretty scary to me the way so many people seem to be forgetting that these books are fiction and are taking them as a literal picture of the near future. If you want a good, well-written perspective on the way good and evil battle for men's souls, read THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS by C.S. LEWIS. If you want to study biblical prophecy just stick with the Bible. If you like science fiction, there are TONS of better-written books in that category.

Do buy this book! I read a newspaper article about it and the hype it created in the States. So I decided I had to know what this was all about.
I come to the follwoing conclusions: The writing is bad - to begin with. There are other authors with bad writing skills (Dan Brown, Tom Clancy... to be continued) but they are not trying to preach - they just try to entertain and sell books. "Left behind" on the other hand is dangerous. It's applauded by Christian fundamentalists because it seems to be the perfect means to get all those supposedly "misguided sinners" back on the "right way". What started as a gripping thriller turns into a disquisition on (or rather in favour of) Christian fundamentalism: People are punished who don't believe everything just because its written somewhere. Using your own brain will get you straight to hell. Of course there are the sceptics (what a "brilliant" stylistic device) who turn into true believers within a few pages - it took them nothing more than listening to a sermon and they fall on their knees.
What's dangerous is that people will tend to belive in this book - either because they are not critical or because they are already very fundamental about their believes. And making use of the fact that so many people are listening now, the authors take the chance to communicate some more of their absurd world picture: damning international finance, freedom of press, the single European currency, other religions even... without anyone really noticing.
This is pure dogmatic infiltration. This is about proselytisation. This is about snatching courious paperback readers and about bearing out fanatics. It promotes fudamentalism.
