In the moments leading up to the Rapture, nobody knows it is coming as the clock silently ticks down. Choices are made. The stage is set as Nicolae Carpathia ruthlessly eliminates any obstacles in his rise to power. In the twinkling of an eye, loved ones disappear without a good-bye. Heaven rejoices as millions are welcomed into the unspeakable presence of God. The darkest days may lie ahead for those who have been left behind. ( )

There's a lot of repetition from previous books - obviously "Left Behind," but the post-rapture judgment scene is too similar to "Glorious Appearing." Story telling is much weaker than the other prequels (which are overall better than the main series). Too much telling, not enough showing.

I don't share the writer's theological viewpoints, but it was surprising to me to hear Irene state that only Rayford can bridge the gap between himself and God, and that Mary (Jesus's mother) was chosen by God because of her righteousness. The first smacks of Pelagianism/works-righteousness. The second does as well, but as a Catholic, I would assert that Mary was "highly favored" not because of her own merits (works-righteousness/Pelagianism) but because of the singular grace given to her by God from the moment of her conception. It's no surprise to me that the authors reject the Immaculate Conception, but it is surprising to hear Pelagianism semi-overtly in its place. ( )

The last of the prequels to the Left Behind series. With the rapture happening towards the end of this book, this is an exciting lead-up to the first Left Behind book. Good story, good writing. ( )

This novel is a continuation of the series before "Left Behind". Same characters and an expansion of the plots that leads up to the Rapture. This novel explains what the ruptured would find in heaven with Christ. And describes the situation on Earth , at the time. ( )
