In the blink of an eye, millions of people on earth have disappeared. The Rapture, predicted centuries ago in the Book of Revelation, has finally happened. Now, the evil one rules the world, and those left behind must make a crucial decision. Each one must choose whether to receive the mark of the beast, or die. Never has faith and courage been more important for the group of believers called the Tribulation Force.

The Left Behind series has topped best-seller lists across the country, been the subject of special features in national media, and captured the attention of Hollywood producers. With sales in the tens of millions, the Left Behind books are the biggest selling inspirational series of all time.

Still Hooked

Another Victim of Tim Lahaye and Jenkins. These guys have me hooked like a junky on crack! I started the series and my mom found the series not long after, we can't wait to call each other at the end of each book and give our thoughts! Each book seeems to sink us further and further into the lives of the characters they have created for us.

  • Book Rating: 5/5

Wow! I have listened to all the books so far - am up to number 9 now and have listened to both the audio book read normally and the Dramatic version. Both are excellent however there is just that extra addition of excitement and intrigue listening to the dramatic series. The story is awesome and I've loved every one. Highly recommended!
