The new film with Nicholas Cage depicts only the disappearance on the plan and how he saved the day by landing it safely - end of film. The book and the original movie with Kirk Cameron tells the whole story. A very believable story based on the Bible - Not Hollywood!
I have read the whole series, back when they 1st came out. I recommend them all. This book series is life changing. It is Revalations written in story form. In other words...Based on a true story, that just hasn't happened yet.
I realized I'd read this before but second reading still good. Captivating story of the end times, the Rapture, and Jesus's return to earth based upon Revelations. The movie of this book is also captivating. The book is well written and hard to put down.
