(Almost) Favorite Book in the Series!

The Hot Dry Desert
I love this book. It's not only about everything leading up to the Battle of Armageddon but, to me, it's Chloe's Book. Pretty early into the book, she's captured by the GC. The testimony she upholds as she's going through unimagineable trials and the temptations to save herself and Kenny is amazing! The way she deals with everything thrown at her speaks to me as a wife and mother. What would I do, if I were in the same situation? I pray I'd be just like her. This is my favorite book in the Left Behind series, right behind "Glorious Appearing" which is the most amazing in the series. These 2 books make the very perfect ending to Left Behind, and I highly recommend them.
This eleventh book in the best-selling Left Behind starts with the scattered members of the Trib Force trying to get their tattered members gathered in the New Babylon of the Middle East. As the great Armageddon draws near, friendships who were thought to be safe are torn, and some safe houses and no longer safe. The millions who still refuse Christ suffer physically unimaginable boils and pain, even as Tsion continues to preach of God's hand desiring those to come to Him. Then It has come. Horsemen and weapons all advance as all of the human race fear for their lives and to be left standing at the end.
This was a book I reviewed for Tyndale House Publishers.
With New Babylon now shrouded in total darkness only believers can see leaving unbelievers with blinded eyes. A member of the tribulation force is taken into custody and the future of the other members seems questionable. Tsion and Buck journey to Jerusalem as the Jewish people prepare for the greatest battle the world has ever faced. Chang and Naomi have become closer. The world is coming to a climactic conclusion as the antichrist steps up his massive destruction.
With love found and great loss this is one of the most tense and nonstop yet in the series yet also one of the saddest. More deaths have unfolded leaving the tribulation force with less members to fight Carpathia and his followers.
This is my favorite in the series to date and I look forward with mixed feelings to the last book. I have really gotten attached to these characters and although I cannot wait to see what happens in the final book I really do not want it to end. Excellent character development and realistic scene as well as dialogue makes this one one that I will reread in the near future. Just cannot seem to get enough of this series and find that it is so relevant to today's world and current events.
The world is on the brink of the ultimate battle of the ages. The armies of the world gather in the Middle East. Thousands are killed as they refuse to take the mark of the beast, including one of the Tribulation Force's most beloved members. The danger has never been so thick as the world gets closer to the Glorious Appearing of Christ. Many wonder if they will live to see the event.
What's great about these books is that, though there are many, the sub-plots never get confusing or overbearing. You get to follow several of the characters from their points of view without ever feeling lost. The characterizations are wonderful. They come to life so easily that you will have no trouble feeling for them, or hating them in some cases. This is probably one of the most important pieces of literature for the Christian world, but the truth is, even without that stamp of importance, it's great literature! This is a great story with great characters, and everyone should read it.
