Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very interesting  Apr 26, 2008
I found this book to be very interesting. I think they did a good job of creating a background for Nicolae and how he came to be. It was a creepy beginning that fits what a creepy person he became. I enjoyed this part of the prequils much more than the other two.
Review of The Rising  Mar 26, 2008
The book was well written and well edited. I felt that it was, however, slow-moving in some places. I would have like for the authors to have added more scientific information on the pregnancy, birth, and early years of the Antichrist.

I was left wondering about the DNA of the Antichrist and how he was genetically structured. But, it was a good read and prepared the reader for the other books in the series.
The Rising  Mar 14, 2008
"Ray would do whatever he had to do to realize one of his two amazing dreams, because either one of them could bring him what he really wanted." This statement really sets the stage for how Ray is an aspiring and impressive kid. Read this book to find out what Ray's dreams and goals are, as well as what happens when Ray's "good" crashes with Nicolae's "bad". This disruption is believed to be part of the events leading up to the "rapture" event, as demonstrated in this book, The Rising, in the religious genre by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins.

The rapture is believed to be when Jesus will return to earth and take all Christians up to heaven. This book is about events leading up to the rapture. The authors clearly portray several pre-rapture events in this long chapter story. The book is controversial, as it covers potential future events that have a religious theme to them. I found this book to be very interesting, based on how it is told from two characters' points of view. I thought the style of the book was exciting, as well as informational. An example of this style was on page 79: "As his solar-powered watch pushed past the forty-five-minute mark, Ray couldn't remain in the car. He stood outside, leaning against it, not caring who saw him. Of course, no one did, despite how conspicuous he felt. Ray studied every woman who came out of the store, almost every one initially looking like his mother."

This story takes place in a large city, and its theme is pre-rapture events. The style of the book is fast-paced, as there is always something new happening. The story starts out by talking about Ray Steele, one of the main characters in the book. Ray was a young boy at the beginning of the story. He enjoyed playing soccer and hanging out with friends. He was a well-behaved kid who aspired to become a professional athlete or a pilot.

Marilena is another main character in the story. She was a busy student. Marilena was married to Sorin, a very focused professor at her college, but their relationship was lacking. When Marilena started going to the library to meet with Vivian, things changed dramatically. Marilena became a very strong Christian. Then, Vivian found out that Marilena had an urge to have a child. That was when Marilena found out that Sorin was actually a homosexual, while Marilena was asexual. Then, Marilena and Sorin divorced and Marilena went to a sperm bank. She had a child, Nicolae, and that was when things broke loose.

Ray Steele became a pilot with a very successful career. Ray was a great guy, but he ended up with a huge problem. Marilena's child, Nicolae, turned out to be a chosen vessel to one of the greatest evils the world has ever known. Read this book to find out how "good" Ray Steele and "evil" Nicolae clashed in an event that will change the world. You will learn how this event will eventually lead to the rapture.

Reading this book went pretty quickly for me, though there were many details about how Ray and Marilena lived. Those who enjoy adventure and religious events will enjoy this fabulous book. I would recommend The Rising to middle school students and those older than middle school age. Those interested in Christian religious beliefs will enjoy this book. The book is very involved, as it switches between two completely different characters (Ray and Marilena) and their different points of view. I thought the authors did a great job of tying the characters' lives together to explain the start of the rapture. The Rising is the first of three books in the prequel to the Left Behind series.

Read this book to learn why many people think the world will someday change dramatically. My prediction is that the rapture is something that will occur somewhat soon and will change the world! I think the rapture will happen sooner than many people think - what do you think? Read this book to form your own opinion.

Carol's review  Jan 29, 2008
Excellent - as usual TimLaHaye makes
the story line interesting and
Just one more book in the all-encompassing, enthralling, and utterly absorbing Left Behind Series  Sep 13, 2007
From the very first letter of the alphabet that my eyes looked upon inside this series of books, until the very last period of the very last sentence, I was hooked. Each one of these books absorbed my attention like no other book has ever done in my life. Biblically sound, theatrically entertaining, and brilliantly written, the Left Behind books will inspire you to dig into God's word and take the pieces of news from your T.V. screen and match them right smack-dab up with the prophecies of the Bible. Your hair will stand up, your heart will race, and you will find yourself helplessly caught in the suspense. Once you finish one of these books, you will desperately race to your computer screen or your local library to pick up the next one!
