This book is good. It pokes a little fun at some of the more laughable characteristics of modern evangelicalism, yet without being annoying. Many of the spoofs of scenes from Left Behind are absolutely rib-splitting -- the satire is truly successful. It wasn't the best-written book ever, but at least it wasn't as bad as LB (and the bad writing in many cases is probably just more satire). If you want a quick read, and a quick laugh, grab this chuckler. It's good. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

LaHaye and Jenkins' best-selling apocalyptic fiction novel, 'Left Behind, ' is already so ridiculous that it's hard to make a parody of it. Yet the conservative Christian author, Nathan Wilson, bravely sets forth to push it over the top. Tweaked versions of all the original characters work together in an absurd tangle of Evangelical goofiness struggling to make sense of the pathetically gnostic vision of the original story. You won't want to miss all body parts, cats, and youth pastors left behind, Buff Williamson's Ivy League deductions, Haddie the Whore of Babylon, or the climactic struggle with the Tulsa Antichrist in a Christian book store. If you regret reading 'Left Behind, ' read 'Right Behind' to ease that pain with laughter.… (more)
