An airborne Boeing 747 is headed to London when, without any warning, passengers mysteriously disappear from their seats. Terror and chaos slowly spread not only through the plane but also worldwide as unusual events continue to unfold. For those who have been left behind, the apocalypse has just begun.
I had read this book many years ago when it first came out and loved it then. I was prompted to read it again as part of the Tyndale Summer Reading program and I am really glad I did.
It is even better the second time around and just as relevant. LaHaye and Jenkins weave an engrossing story of real life people coping with biblical events and discovering truth for themselves. I think the key to really enjoying the Left Behind series is to accept that it is based on the authors’ understanding of Bible prophecy and each reader might have a different opinion about the events. Bible scholars can interpret things in different ways, but what I like the best about this book is the way the authors encourage readers to put their faith in Jesus.
This is a riveting series for anyone who is interested in imagining what the future might hold.
