Book Description

Thousands of years of human history stained by strife, death, and sin come to an end when the King of Glory returns to earth. The satisfying conclusion of the seven years of tribulation covered by the Left Behind series portrays the return of Jesus Christ to earth in both glory and judgment at the height of the battle between the forces of evil gathered at Armageddon and the remaining Christian believers at Petra and Jerusalem. A repackage of the twelfth book in the New York Times best-selling Left Behind series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too long, but worth the read 5 Jan. 2005
I am interested to read the other reviews of this novel on Amazon having found some of them saying what I wanted to say but wasn't sure one dared to criticise these books! 12 books is too many - there isn't enough material to fill them without a lot of padding, but the reason for drawing the series out as long as possible is obvious (she says cynically). However, unlike some of my fellow reviewers, I did find the characters more attractive than they did. I like Chaim, and I admit to rather liking Mac. (Ken Ritz was my favourite until his sad demise). It didn't occur to me to think them smug, though I can see this is a valid observation. Chloe has guts. Nevertheless, I found myself losing patience with this final installment as it depended so much more on utter conjecture than the others. The military and political goings on of the previous books have a foot in the real world - perhaps because we are so used now to political adventure novels and films - but the descriptions of the glorious appearing and the arrival of the millennial kingdom seemed too fantastic. Jesus was so scary that I didn't warm with pleasure at the prospect of being there, but perhaps that says a lot more about me than anything else. The final reunion of Rayford with his family was naff - they may as well have met in Sainsbury's it was so uninspiring. What a shame - I had been looking forward to crying and I didn't.
I will certainly read the prequel and sequel when they appear (and the next 24 after that!) but more out of curiosity than genuine excitement (that awaits the next Susan Howatch St Benet's novel if she writes one). I have now been researching responses to the novels and have ordered several interesting critiques of them. I'm not sure what to believe now about the end times. I guess in the end we just have to be ready for anything!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wrap Up for the Fans 7 April 2004
By Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers TOP 1000 REVIEWER
With only hours to go before the return of Jesus to set up his earthly millennial reign, Buck and Ray are unaccounted for. While members of the Tribulation Force try to find out what happened to them, the forces of Carpathia are taking over Jerusalem and lining up to attack Petra again. Chaim is trying one last effort to save those who might still be undecided. But the thought foremost on everyone's mind is, today is the day we will get to see Jesus.
So really, the question comes down to, will fans like it? As with just about every book in the series, reaction will be mixed, but I liked it. There were some amazing scenes and it once again renewed my faith in God's awesome power. Yes, there were some things that made me roll my eyes, especially characters desires to get to a particular place to see what would happen. I know why the authors did it (so we could see it), but it did seem to get out of hand a few times. They even managed to explain logically some of my biggest complaints with the ending of the last book.
However, there are some flaws. The second half of the book seems to really slow down with pages of scripture quotes. While some of that is fine, it got to be excessive at times, and I found myself skimming past it. And, while the final chapter was wonderful for us long time fans, that chapter was what I was looking forward to most and could have been longer.
In the end, I think fans will find it a satisfying end to the series. New comers will be lost if they jump in here. It really is best to start at the beginning. And people who don't like the series will certainly want to steer clear as there will be nothing here to change their minds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Last book 7 Oct. 2007
This is the final book in the left behind series. The book is still not well written, but it was able to build suspense. Like the people in the book, I kept anticipating the Glorious Appearing. And the story does keep moving. The book begins with the Battle already started and was able to surprise me (I won't be a spoiler). And ends with Jesus getting ready to start his reign.

They do tie up all the story lines. And get most of the biblical prophesies in. But it seemed sort of rushed at the end. Mainly so they could get in what they interpret the Bible to say. But we pay the price in that they neglect the personal storylines (feelings) of the main characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars a major letdown 26 July 2004
I waited for the final instalment with much anticipation only to be left very dissapointed. it was too long and drawn out. I feel that this all could have been wrapped up in the last book. I found myself skipping through the glorious appearing to get to the important bits as by now i have grown tired of the characters and can almost guess what they will do next. i understand they are bringing out a prequel and a sequel but i for one will not be in any major hurry to buy them. i think this whole series would have been better if alot of the needless padding out had been removed and condensed into six books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious Appearing - last of Left Behind 5 Sept. 2006
At last - the end of the saga. As usual a fantastically written book with all the characters we have come to know and love.

A great end to the story although I have to admit that I was somehow hoping for something more! Not sure what!!

This is a must if you have read all the others. Lets hope that this partnership will write some more soon.

Brenda Barber, Norfolk.
