Reading the Left Behind Series
||Wed, 05-07-2003 - 10:20pm
I am finally reading the Left Behind Series. I started it ages ago when the books first came out and stopped after the 1st 2 to wait for more of the books to come out. I was going to wait for all 7 then 7 became 12! What I am really doing is listening to all of the books on tape on my commute to and from work. I'm almost at the end of Apollyon now and will need to get the next book on tape by Friday or Monday. What I find facinating is how much the anti-christ attitudes in the book parallel the views of some of our world leaders. I also find it surprising how the author managed to weave in humor in some of the most unexpected places. Some of the lines made me laugh out loud.
I've read some reviews on these books and some people who probably know alot more that I do about prophecy have a problem with the series. I guess from my vantage point of seeing movies about the rapture and end times, reading books (fiction and not) and articles on the end times I noticed this: That no one agrees on what is going to happen but everyone agrees you need to have Jesus in your heart. And that is my prayer for this book series, that all those who don't know Jesus and read it accept Him as their savior.
