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.

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!

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.

As a non-religious person I knew very little about the Christian beliefs concerning the 'Rapture' and 'Christ's Second Coming'. I also felt a series based in religion would hold very little interest for me. How wrong I was!!! The books are fast paced, exciting and real page turners. The characters are believable and you find yourself immersed in their stories, wanting them to survive. I also learnt a huge amount and found myself considering what the Bible foretells, wondering if there actually is some truth to it. The 'Left Behind' series commanded my interest, fascinated me and changed my perspective on religion. I would recommend this series to believers and to those who may be sceptical (like I was) but who are willing to approach this with an open mind and a preparedness to be taught something as well as enjoying a fascinating read. Excellent series and extremely talented authors who know what they're talking about.

So, this is finally it: The climax of the Left Behind novels. But is it really a climax?
Firstly, I have to say that I haven't been particularly impressed with the whole series so far. The writing is poor; the characters have little or no depth, most of whom are incredibly smug and self-righteous, not to mention legalistic and rather un-likeable: In fact, I have to admit to not liking the majority of the main protagonists.
On a few occasions I have been very tempted to give up on this book. It is - like it's predecessors - poorly written and the whole series should've been written as a trilogy instead of stretching it out for so long. I guess that brings in a lot more money. I don't say that as a criticism as I know the sort of man that Tim LaHaye is and I'm sure that he has used his share to do a lot of good. I don't know about Jenkins, however. I do know that he did the lion's share of the creative writing - and I use the term loosely. And as it was probably he who fleshed out the characters, I wonder what sort of person he is.
The Glorious Appearing refers to the Second Coming of Jesus as prophesied in both the Old and New Testaments. This happens around halfway through the book, which was disappointing, as the novel is rather slow-paced compared with the others; and also the fact that the Tribulation Force characters - as opposed to the Remnant - are still going about doing their own things and being irresponsible with that self-satisfied, smug air that has come to characterise these novels. Even when Jesus returns, Rayford and Mac are still trying to get as close to Carpathia - the caricatured Anti-Christ - so they can enjoy seeing him defeated and humiliated.
Carpathia has become more and more ridiculous with each instalment of these books.
