The imagery in this book is what makes it so good. Just picturing seeing the horses of the Apocalypse riding by you - there would be no words. There will be no denying Christ in the end days. The bible references continue in this book and I feel the book enhances the scripture and stays with it. I love the writing because it makes it real and the situations are believeable. The characters are well developed by this time if you have read the series all the way through. I love the story line and it is worth the read.
I've read all of the books except for the new one coming out in a few days, and without exception, these are the best fictional books I've ever read! The plot is attention grabbing and keeps you wanting more when you've finished one book!For those reviewers who are skeptical about the "theology" LaHaye and Jenkins present, do note that neither author is saying, "THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE END TIMES." They present a storyline based on what we humans know about what will happen from the Book of Revelation. So all of the trumpet and bowl judgements poured out upon the earth are things that are actually WRITTEN in SCRIPTURE! You can verify this yourself if you pick up your BIBLE and read! Sure some of the character scenarios are made up, but that is why this is a work of fiction, not a book of prophesy itself.My recommendation to anyone thinking about reading the series starting from the first book--read "Are We Living in the End Times" by LaHaye and Jenkins prior to reading the series. In this book they describe why they take the outlooks on Revelation scripture and put those into the series. It will help give you a better prespective as to why they think there will be a pre-tribulation rapture, etc. etc..Overall, my comment is that there is a REASON why these books have become so popular and have such a large readership-- quality and illustrative power of depicting how the end of the world might REALLY BE!!
These books have a high entertainment value. The only problem I have with this series is that I think the real Christians in the tribulation will rely more on the Bible, not just prophetically but for strength for each day.
