Good, but not great,
By A Customer
This review is from: APOLLYON VOL 5 HB: The Destroyer Is Unleashed (Left Behind) (Hardcover)
This 5th book in the series rates somewhere between Left Behind (the best) and Soul Harvest (the worst). I've read or scanned most of the reviews to date, and I've come to the conclusion that most people give these books bad (or good) reviews based on theology rather than on literature.
The Left Behind series are not great literature, but they are good reads. I find myself caring about the characters and what happens to them. I turn the pages more for that reason than to see what the next judgement is.
There is no deep thinking required when you read these books. They are written as action-adventure novels, not theological treatises. Occasionally, the books do cause me to think about my own faith, but nothing close to far-reaching soul searching. They certainly haven't "changed my life."
Appolyon and the rest of the series are not a waste of time. Read them and enjoy them. Think about your faith. Keep in mind that this is only a part of what Christianity is all about. Then go find out what the rest of Christianity is all about.
