Reviews - What do our customers think?
The story dragged tremendously and was dull --- how can this be?!  Jun 2, 2008
I had to write my only review of the LB series with this installment novel because I expected it to be most exciting and rewarding of the series. Little did I know that the best writing was actually "left behind" several installments back. The best novels of series (IMHO) were #1 (Left Behind), 3 (Nicolae), 6 (Assassins), 7 (The Indwelling), and 8 (The Mark).

One note: I have NOT read any of the reviews of this installment nor the series because I didn't want any reviews to taint my impressions of the writings while I am still reading them.

The actual writing itself for this installment was lifeless, dull, and sluggish. Talk about dragging it out!!! I no longer cared for any of the surviving characters, even though I could have cared. The "good" characters were used so incidentally when they were convenient to the storyline that you just wished Jesus would come already. The "bad" characters that made the other better novels somewhat interesting, like Leon Fortunato, Viv Ivins, and Suhail Akbar, were barely used. Nicolae is laughably evil and merely a caricature of what he once was. When a novel starts scrimping on the details for the main bad guy is when you know the story has got big, big problems.

Jesus' return to earth should be one of the most anticipated events in all Christians' hopes. Not only was it disappointing overall, but it took several hundred pages to get there. The story put me to sleep easily for many nights, which is not good to say for a novel.

I had never given one star reviews for ANY of the novels I have read. But for this effort, I am compelled. Sorry, Tim and Jerry. But you made money from me, and I need to write fairly to warn consumers.
Faith vs. Content vs. Context vs. Spiritual Growth  Apr 25, 2008
I've read many of the reviews here of both very negative and positive critiques of the reviewers and can honestly say I'm very surprised on how visceral both sides have reviewed this book. I believe many of the reviewers may have lost sight of 'interpretation of factual prophecy' as it is interpreted by authors providing a 'possible' fictionalized future of events that are to come, and began to espouse how incorrect the authors or spot on.

Hopefully you'll find my review helpful as far as how the 'novel' is laid out and written as opposed to ones own personal beliefs and interpretations as I suppose we can all agree that the argument of the end times has divided both believers and non believers and the church itself.

As a whole, I found the first third of the book very slow at times and random plot threads that seemed irrelevant to both the climax and how the previous novels set forth the action. In it's totality, I honestly believe that a lot of superfluous dialogue and descriptions were overdone and actually detracted from the pace of the book. It may have flowed much better if a good 75-100 pages of 'fluff' with no substance could have been eliminated, but then again, I understand that the authors may felt the need to put out a 400 page novel to match the length of previous installments.

My other criticism of both 'Glorious Appearing' and many of the previous novels is what I personally believe as a very overly simplistic writing style that some may find either unrealistic or insulting. Not the content mind you, but interaction and conversations between characters seem to be 'dumbed' down to a sixth grade reading level at times. This may be intentional on the author's behalf as to not alienate a wide demographic of readers by using fancy words. I can understand with a subject matter like this that everyone has an opinion and you are always walking a fine line as to not to overtly offend or ostracize your readers. I believe that both LaHaye and Jenkins truly do care about the salvation of the human race and must make the content easy for anyone to understand no matter their faith. However, this can lend to a child like mentality in dialogue that some more mature people may find difficult to swallow. I kept thinking to myself that no one really actually talks like this. Even Christians that I know do not have this 1950's Leave It To Beaver like sanitized speech. In other words, while I find the story utterly fascinating and compelling, I'm often stymied with the too many 'Gosh darn & golly gee' speeches that just seem to silly.

It's these two points which lead me to giving it only three stars. If the dialogue was more realistic and secular it would come across as more intelligent and most likely gain another star from me.

As far as content and context to the end times itself and what is prophesized in the bible, I can't find much fault. Though I don't claim to be a theologian or bible scholar by any means, the authors interpretation paints a dim picture for non believers and really gives hope to those believers who have questions. Are the authors actually correct? I suppose only God and Christ know for sure, for it was Jesus who said "Only I know the hour and the day".

Speculation of the end times has dated back to almost 2000 years, but the faithful do believe it will happen. This is a taste, a 'what if' novel that we as readers can apply today looking at events and present day technology. Christ tells us to live our lives in a state of being 'ready' for we never know when that day will actually come, and despite the arguing many reviewers have espoused here on fact versus fiction, I think they are missing the point.

The overall theme is no matter how you personally think events may unfold, we must make a choice....accept or deny His fulfillment and paying our debt through His grace, love, and mercy.

Myself, as a Christian, was scared to read the final chapters. Some have argued that the Jesus presented here is a hateful, mean, unloving person. I didn't get that all....For me it was moving. I am scared because this novel made me look into the mirror at times and my spirit and soul ached not to ever be separated from Christ, whether in the end times or today. I wept for my friends and my family, and even myself. Any novel that can make me look at my own spirit and raise just as many questions about my own eternal destiny therefore transcends just pure entertainment value and has me wanting to make sure I reconnect with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I think His love is shown in abundance here as he give the people of this earth chance after chance after chance, and yet they still deny, mock, argue, and trivialize over petty things. The point of the novel was to illustrate these follies and let the reader realize that we are over-complicating our decisions and analysis of these events. This is still a novel after all. In the end, it really is broken down to a very simple choice: we are either accept Him today in faith, or we deny Him.....but we must make a decision, like it or not, as the end times may be here before we know it.
This is one of the later books in the Left Behind Series. Similar to all the others. Fortunately is a story in itself, so if you don't get the whole series you can still get a good read.
potentially faith-shattering  Oct 29, 2007
I felt my life being stolen away as I plowed through this volume. 200 pages in, I looked back and realized that literally nothing had happened yet. So much of this story has been characters saying and thinking the same things, same predictions about what's going to happen, regurgitating the same memories. Glacial plotting. A volume's what a chapter would be in any other book.
I became a Christian through C.S. Lewis, ravenously devouring everything he'd ever written. 25 years later, because of this series, I'm going through a serious crisis of faith. This CANNOT be what Christians want to read by the millions. This guy CANNOT be hocking his ads for how to help others write. 11 volumes ago, I thought we Christians were the most intelligent people, but I'm mistaken if this is what they're interested in reading. This volume in particular's literally stealing my faith. It's the popularity, not existence, of these books that depresses me. This's what Christians want - no plot or characterization, just mindless runaround? I started this series after seeing the movies, whose scriptwriters worked miracles.
Jesus's mind-blowingly disappointing here, quoting Himself randomly. It broke my heart to find myself skimming His words. I never want to read another Bible verse again after these writers get done with them. The plot elements consist of increasingly-contrived ways to get a Christian into a critical scene as witness to Revelation unfolding. The idea of writing a neutral perspective, or of getting into the heads of bad or neutral characters, seems to be forbidden. And that too is as very uncharitable as the rest of this monstrosity; one comes away thinking that only Christians are people and that these writers simply have never been exposed to any non-Christians. (In early volumes everyone kind of stood around waiting to be converted; but even then the writing seemed to consist of "Let me tell you about Jes-... oh, sorry, phone call.") A secretary in the darkness who'd taken the mark wanted to convert but couldn't because, well, that's what a literal reading of Revelation says; heart-wrenching, disappointing because it reads like how people who've lived in a bubble-world of Christians their whole life view outsiders.
Looking back on this series, I chiefly remember people pointlessly running around with guns, in airplanes and/or on cellphones. The Living Son of God quotes random Bible verses and inserts what everybody hears as their own name, an immensely personal experience, we're TOLD; we're SHOWN Jesus using a form-letter and inserting names from the Book of Life. Jesus (ONE good scene) calls up Rayford and discusses his life; almost a similar scene with Chang, but it's another example of the ridiculous pacing in this series. Skim over stuff like that, and give us 50 pages of Ray being dragged along on a motorcycle.
Countless missed opportunities. A huge asteroid fell into the sea, obliterating coastlines, and one sentence later we're back to our usual games of people with no money flitting about the world on their private planes to get places that they didn't have to be except that the plot called for a Christian character to witness something going on in that particular country at that particular moment. Devastating earthquakes; stores still open. (Or were people scrounging for food; it's hard to tell. The jet fuel refineries kept up at full capacity. For a novel about daily life in the Tribulation, there was very little detail about its logistics.) The earth's flattened on a page and everyone gets on with business ("Oh, look, no more mountains, isn't that - oh, sorry, phone call."). To say that these writers have absolutely no idea what to do with this material is an understatement of Biblical proportions. There's so much going on around the borders of this novel, off-screen, and all we see are the usual runarounds.
Toward the very end, there are actually a few touching snippets showing Jesus interacting with people personally. But THESE're what we've waded through 11.5 volumes of runarounds to reach? There's no concept of what's worthy of detailing, as if the writers are afraid to take chances by doing anything with Jesus, Whom we've suffered through so many airplane rides to see and hear. Jesus switches from Protestant Latin (nth Bible quotes) to splitting His infinitives (original sentence or two). They're less interested in character resolution (none of what you waited to see in this volume is actually done in detail) than they are in showing off their degrees in Biblical Engineering. I thought I was a literalist for believing in Adam & Eve, but these guys take it to a whole new level. Random passages from Isaiah, Daniel, and all the rest are used to show us in far too much detail the exacting detail of prophetic minutiae. I can't speak for anyone else, but this stuff really tested my faith: "Is this really what it means to be a Christian? Do I really have to believe every contradictory account of the endtimes in full literalness?" The more OT prophecy they spout, the more convinced I become that Isaiah etc weren't talking about the endtimes at all. I find myself praying that, faithwise, the baby doesn't go out with the bathwater, if you know what I mean.
C.S. Lewis is dead. Now you have to be a friend of these guys to get a novel published. I wash my hands of the ghetto of Christian literature. Sorry to vent, but I'm really not kidding about the faith thing. My pastor says you can't really call yourself a Christian if you don't like to be around Jesus' people. If the people praising this series are who he's talking about, I've got some serious thinking to do. Lewis made me think that Christians were intelligent; Jenkins makes me think you have to check your brain at the door.
Religious fiction  Oct 20, 2007
Another one of those Christian Fictions that bespeaks doom and destruction for all who don't turn their lives over to Jesus. If you can get past the religious psychobabble, its a good book. Otherwise, Buddha is a much better choice and his followers are typically less intolerant and war-like.

The end of a series in which Christians can read, believe that they're superior and have chosen the right religion and give them more confidence to beat down the doors of the rest of the world to accept a fictional character in their lives so that they and the 700 Club can get more money, control more people, and ruin more lives with a bull-**** story.
