Product Description

Product Description

It has been nearly two years since the day of the mass disappearances. In one cataclysmic instant, millions all over the globe simply vanished, leaving everything but flesh and bone behind. Global war has erupted, and the Tribulation Force sets a suicidal course that places them in direct opposition to the rise of Antichrist. A repackage of the third book in the New York Times best-selling Left Behind series.


Continues the saga of airline pilot Rayford Steele, his daughter, Chloe, writer Buck Williams, and their pastor, Bruce Barnes, who suspect the new world leader, Nicolae Carpathia, is the Antichrist of biblical prophecy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dragged in Places, But Still a Good Read 4 Oct 2003
This third book in the Left Behind Series dragged a bit in places, but that's OK-you can't expect every book in a long series to be equally good ! Part of the reason it draggged is that there was some summarizing of previous books added in for readers who may have picked up this book without seeing the former books. Even so, don't skip this book, because some important things happen, and you need to know those things for the following books.
For me, the most interesting thing in this book was Nicolae's ongoing relationship with Hattie, and what happens with that.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have grown as a Christian reading this book 25 Nov 1997
By A Customer
This book keep me wanting to run with the people in this book. I never knew I could feel fear and excited joy at the same time! This series is one of the best stories that I have ever read. If the Antichrist is just a little like Nicholea then I sold for Christ. I am giving out my books to everyone I know. My wife who does not like to read read Nicholea before I could finish Tribulation Force. She loved the book too and pushed me to get through the book. I await the next book with impatients...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reading 20 Jan 1998
By A Customer
About a year or two ago, my wife and mother in law and others in my family began reading the books in this series. I didn't notice them til this last August. Then I read Left Behind. I took me about a week. Immediately I was hooked. Since they'd already read Tribulation Force and were working on Nicholea, I was able to read the second book right away. This took 4 days to read. By the time I was ready to read Nicholea some one else was reading it. I had to wait about a month before they finished and got the book back. This book took 3 days. It's now hard for me to read anything else. Nothing else seems so real and alive. Now I get my first real taste of a wait, EIGHT MONTHS!!!! That's okay, take your time. It apparently works. God Bless you two for this Book.

I am a frequent traveller and find that I always need something to read while on the plane. I happened to pick up Left Behind and had finished it in two 3 hour plane rides. I did similarly with Tribulation Force. Nicolae, however, did not live up to the other two. I found the begining and ending to be fantastic, but the core of the book seamed stale to me-Especially after the way the first two gripped me from cover to cover. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I didn't like it, I loved it. It's just tough to top perfection. Tim and Jerry have set a standard that is extremely tough to beat-even for them. I cannot wait for the fourth book in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third time is definately a charm! 20 Nov 1997
By A Customer
The best of a 3, soon to be 7 book series! You will, with out a doubt, be reading this one without being able to put it down! Things are getting a little "heated" in this sequel! The last days seem to be drawing closer to an end, I mean, how much worse can it get for Rayford, Chloe and Buck as they struggle to survive the endless onslaught of evil that seems to reign without end? Set plenty of time aside to read this one, you won't want to stop until you are finished! (Tim, if you are reading this, a good title to the last book would be "The Lamb", you agree???) Happy reading!

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe i'm expecting too much.... 29 Oct 2007
After reading 'Tribulation Force' (the second book in this series which i scored a 5) I presumed that the next book would be just as good. But no, afraid not. It took 195 pages before the 'story' started to interest me. There's an escape, which is good but hardly enough for a 400 page book! And what other little action there was seemed to be squeezed in as an after-thought into the last 10 pages! The sixth sign is suppose to be a huge earthquake which shakes the very foundations of the earth....this was more discriptive of a wobbling jelly when the spoon falls out! So much happens to make you FEEL for the characters in book 2, but in this book there's hardly anything to get excited about. There's too much going over old ground and as i've already said, the ending is rushed which makes it less of a 'cliffhanger'. Seriously, the first 2 books are great, but this one is a filler, and was very disappointing. Why it was called 'Nicola rise of the Anti-christ' i'm not sure, he isn't in it as much as the first 2 books. Should have been called 'Buck's Great Escape'
I have nothing against missing out 18 months (this is a seven year story after all!) and yes Amanda comes from nowhere, but unlike Left Behind and 'T.F.' the excitement and wonder is flat. I will be getting book 4 'Soul Harvest' because this series showed so much promise in the beginning. I just hope it will get a 5 or 4 star rating from me, because 3 is all 'Nicola' can manage. One thing that does get on my nerves (same as when i read Stephen King or any American author) is the word 'GOTTEN''s GOT!!! As in 'He got away', not 'he GOTTEN away'!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK Read 7 Oct 2007
This is the third book in the Left Behind Series. And as I mentioned in the title, this is the best one yet. Though I should have rated it 3 stars, I couldn't. It deserves only three because the plot is not plausible and they do not explain the scriptures well. Just quote them. But then, I could not put the book down. That is why I gave it a four. I just had to read until I finished it.

Two other things bothered me about the book. First I found in the book was the repetition of material from the previous books. Where they trying to bring you up to date without having to read the first two books.... or just trying to fill up enough pages to have a book. Second, I felt as if I was watching a Land Rover commercial.

This book covers the time of the Seven Seals. We actually watch the characters live through six of the seals, and the book ends with the silence of the seventh. We once again focus on two of the tribulation characters again, Buck and Rayford.

Rayford mainly deals with his dilemma about actually working for the Anti-Christ as his pilot. After all, not only is he Born Again now, he is part of the Tribulation Force. But something happens that places him in the position to hear some of the inner planning's of the Anti-Christ, so he stays.

The action packed part of the book is with Buck. Though he works for the Anti-Christ as well. He still writes cover stories exposing the Anti-Christ to those who will pay attention, in an "objective" way. And is instrumental in helping a famous Jewish Scholar, who the Anti-Christ wants dead, out of Israel. And it is this exciting exodus that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
