This is the seventh book in the Left Behind series. The last book ended with the so-called Antichrist being assassinated and us not sure who was responsible. Here we begin with an influx of 4 million people into New Babylon to morn the passing of Carpathia.
His body is laid in state within a vacuum-sealed Plexiglas coffin. So all may pass and view him. His funeral is set up three days after his death. While the millions who are present watch along with the world on a non-stop TV broadcast, Carpathia rises from the dead. This is where the title of the book comes from, for Carpathia is now suppose to be the indwelt, Satan incarnate.
Carpathia breaks his way out of his sealed coffin to stand in front of the multitude. He stands and starts by using the very words of Jesus, and then switches to those of his own. Warning that all who do not worship him will know that a Tribulation is truly coming.
Mean while, the Tribulation Force members are doing all they can to get back to their home base in the USA. A home base that has been compromised. We watch the race between them race against the GC Peace Keeping forces.
I would like again like to add, that this is not a series you could pick up in the middle. This book will not stand-alone. And though the writing is not the best, it still makes you want to see what comes next.
