Even though it is fiction, this series keeps you thinking not only thinking about what is gonna happen to the characters in the story, but about our relationship with Christ. This series is a must read!
Since Nicolae is the third book of the series in "Left Behind" it makes you want to continue from the first of the series and buy more to complete your library so that you may share the book with other's. The charactors are not real but the phropecies prodicted in the "Holy Bible" Are true book one starts when "Christ" comes back to the earth to gather his children (believers in Christ) home to heaven, otherwise known as the "Rapture" people will disapear and distruction will happen,, as accident's example: one will be in the field and the other is taken, this will be world wide it will be a chaotic time with people looking for loved one's, all news, television news casts, will be reporting missing person's, No automobile driver, car crashes. No pilot, plane crashes. Fire's with smoke, flames. After this happen's families and all people will have to make the choice to follow "God" and believe in him, or The Antichrist, doomed with the pit of hell. "Nicolae" don't miss it, and Don't be "Left Behind.
This third book in the "Left Behind" series is an awesome read! If you've read the first 2, you've definitely got to read them all. And if you've seen the 3rd movie, please be aware that movie did not follow the book/s at all! This book continued where the last one left off and made me so excited for Jesus' return, making me want to dig deeper into my bible.
The plot is good, the good characters are likeable, the evil characters hate-able (Nicolae is so much more creepy in this book than in any of the movies!), and it stays as true to God's word as possible... if you're a pre-millenial rapture kinda believer. Even if you don't know where you stand on that issue, this book is still a must read. It's not only good entertainment but is also very thought-provoking whether you believe this it the way it will all happen in the end or not. Any book in this series is a great gift for a non-believer, too.
The reading level is pretty low, I'd say, which is why I give it 4 stars. However, the low reading level can definitely be a good thing considering that people who don't often read can be drawn into this story and become hooked. My mom read this book and she never reads! In that case, I was glad for the writing style.
The third book in the best-selling Left Behind series starts off energized with a meeting of Nicaolae Carpathia and leading character Rayford Steele. Explosions rock the world that is becoming more desolate by the hour. The now newly formed Tribulation Force gains momentum and members right in the stead of Carpathia's rising empire. Other Trib members, an Israeli Tsion Ben-Judah, and Buck Williams, work to instruct and unify the members, and watch as another seal is broken under the wrath of God.
This was a book I reviewed for Tyndale House Publishers.
