From the Back Cover
Millions missing, feared dead. Fiery collisions claim thousands as pilots, drivers vanish. Romanian leader Carpathia to speak at U.N.
Panic surges through a Heathrow-bound Boeing 747 as some passengers and crew vanish, along with millions worldwide. Captain Rayford Steele fights to quell hysteria while facing personal tragedy--his wife and son are among the missing. Rumors fly, and fanatics warn about the end of the world. Could they be right? Meanwhile, crack journalist Cameron "Buck" Williams, on the trail of a global financial conspiracy, finds a more ominous story unfolding as storm clouds of good and evil gather.
Left Behind launched the best-selling series that rocked the publishing world and made millions seriously consider the future. Is it just the beginning . . . or the beginning of the end?
With special features relating to current events and end-times prophecy.

Second, it isn't terribly well written, in the sense in which it might be judged in a creative writing class. The main failing is that on a number of occasions there are LONG passages of direct speech, in which a character tells someone a number of things which the READER already knows, and which are therefore not good writing technique. Another thing for which I expect the author might be criticised in a class is a failure to SELECT material; he finds it necessary to tell us everything that happens to the characters on the days in question.
That being said. I rather enjoyed it and intend to buy the next one at some point to find out what happens next.
For anyone mystified or daunted by end-time prophecy, a lot of the confusion surrounding 'End Time' teaching and the Second Coming of Our Lord, is clarified in this book. Chapter by chapter, the authors discuss the prophecies about the end times; look, without date setting, at the signs of the times; and examine the central role played by Jerusalem and Israel, highlighting God's heart for the people of His everlasting covenant. In a scholarly yet readable style, the book of Revelation is unravelled chronologically; key characters of the end times are revealed and the final chapter concludes with an anecdotal quote highlighting the book's central premise: '...It's later than it's ever been!'
'Are We Living in the End Times?' is a wake up call to all believers and a challenge to the church. 'History shows that whenever the church has lived as though her Lord could return at any moment, her members have tended to live for God and to energetically evangelize the lost...The fires of revival that have come and gone throughout church history have often been associated with Second Coming teachings, including the 'signs of the times.' Chapter 3, Page 22
One star lost for two reasons:
1. Maybe this is a personal reaction, however, I am uncomfortable when a writer quotes extensively from works of fiction (and in particular his own books). While the discussion of how and why events and characters were depicted in the 'Left Behind' series is very interesting and obviously has application to the book's key subject, it would be more appropriate, in my opinion, to discuss these novels in a separate publication.
2. I understand that in arguing for imminency, the authors want to show how current events and technologies could easily fulfil the conditions for the Second Coming, however, as my version of the book was written in 1999 this gives their research a dated feel and if they hadn't been careful to state their position on date setting, it would reduce the credibility of an otherwise excellent book.
