This thrill-ride was a glimpse into the very near and frightening future, as the New World Order sets the stage for today’s preppers and survivalists. How will life fare for those of us who will not take on the mark of the beast? It was fun to read of technological advances that seemed astonishing when the book was written, yet have become part of our daily lives in this millennium...SMILE!!! ( )

By this point in the series, it seems the authors abandoned any way of making the Bible (or their interpretation) seem plausible, and went full fundamentalist. Everything is literal. Nothing is symbolic. ( )

Ray tries to find out what happened to his wife, and the Tribulation Force go to Jerusalem for a great meeting.

Yet more awful events, as predicted in one interpretation of the book of Revelation, and it should have been an exciting book. But somehow it just seemed to drag on. It would be confusing for anyone who hadn't read the previous four in the series, but is tedious to those who have. ( )

Book description
As the world's thousands of believers gather in Jerusalem for a stadium rally, the Tribulation Force struggles with their own personal crises. Newspaper reporter Buck Williams and his wife, Chloe, question whether or not they should have a child when the future of the world is so uncertain. Meanwhile, Rayford Steele discovers the shocking truth about his wife, Amanda.\

Nicolae Carpathia continues his rise to power, forcing believers underground. But Nicolae isn't prepared for a plague of scorpion-like locusts tormenting his followers-with a pain so horrible that men try to kill themselves but aren't allowed to die.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0842329269, Paperback)

Apollyon: The Destroyer Is Unleashed, by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, is another suspenseful chronicle of those left behind after the rapture of the saved. As the book opens, Hattie Durham, the former airline attendant and mistress of the antichrist, Nicolae Carpathia, is wracked with confusion about what to do with her illegitimate child, whose birth date is coming due. Rayford Steele, the airline pilot who flies Carpathia's plane, is ambivalent about the mounting evidence that his late wife, Amanda, may have been a false believer. Buck, the ace newspaper reporter, and Chloe, his wife, are debating whether to have a child when the future of the world is so uncertain. And all of the world's thousands of believers are gathering in Jerusalem for a stadium rally, which will lead to a showdown with Nicolae Carpathia. Believers are increasingly relying on the Internet for underground communication, and most of them are becoming more and more tempted by violence as a way of battling the forces of evil overtaking the world. But demon locusts are shortly dispatched as a divine plague to attack those who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads; this buys the believers a little bit of time to solve their respective personal crises, all of which end in ways that will keep you riveted until the last page.
