Joni Pearl5 Stars Out Of 5May 22, 2010Joni PearlI am so glad I started reading the prequel to the Left Behind series. I enjoyed it very much. It is interesting to see how the characters are built from their youth into the Left Behind books (what drives them, etc.). Rayford and Cameron were very different from what I thought they would be like...they were not very likable at all...but then, that is probably why they are left behind. A must read for everyone who enjoyed the Left Behind books.

David Bailey1 Stars Out Of 5May 12, 2008David BaileyDidn't really enjoy the bulk of this book. Didn't really care about the young lives of Nicolie and Rayford Steel a/c the rest of left behind books told the background of these two characters. If I had thought it was so in depth about them I would NOT have bought the book, but I thought at first it would be an addition to my complete set of books of Left Behind series. But you never know about something until you try it, Right?
Jon P.4 Stars Out Of 5March 17, 2008Jon P.I'd read the entire series and decided to give the prequels a try. The Rising is an enjoyable book. It provides good insight into how the characters we came to know in the Left Behind series made the choices they did. The section on how the young Rayford Steele was disillusioned with the church is powerful. It's a reminder of why it is critical that Christians truly understand our faith and study God's Word so that we are ready to give an answer to the questions of those who do not know Jesus Christ. This is a book that I can easily recommend for someone new to the Left Behind series or someone who's read them all.
