Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Execution of Carpathia opponents scheduled. Tribulation Force operative among the condemned. GC military surrounds Petra; millions face extermination.

A supernatural darkness has engulfed the Middle East. Millions of Christ-followers huddle in the red rock city of Petra and in pockets around the globe, threatened with execution for refusing the loyalty mark of Antichrist Nicolae Carpathia. The Tribulation Force, hunted as subversives and working against the forces of evil, race against time as Carpathia amasses the most powerful army in history. As the world hovers near destruction, the faithful scan the skies for any sign of their last and greatest hope—the Messiah.

Armageddon is #11 in the phenomenal New York Times best-selling Left Behind series that rocked the publishing world and made millions think seriously about the future and their places in it.

With special features relating to current events and end-times prophecy.

Customer Reviews

Left Behind may have gotten a 3 or 4 star rating it it were cut down to 3 books or so.
Paul Taatjes
It may be because the latter books did little character development, and much of the action seems repetitious and dragged out.
Jadwiga
In our current times it is possible to think of the things that will be happening towards the end times.
Bernardine Hess

Okay, I'll admit I'm hooked on the Left Behind Series. I've now read all eleven books, and I'll definitely read the last one when it's released. There's enough good content to peak my interest and keep me going through the boring parts. It's like being hooked on a soap opera. I'm too caught up in the story and the characters to stop caring now.
However, while I'll continue to read the Left Behind series, I have to agree with those who say that "The Christ Clone Trilogy" by James BeauSeigneur and "Conquest of Paradise" by Britt Gillette are better books and much more realistic end times scenarios. As an added bonus, since "The Christ Clone Trilogy" and "Conquest of Paradise" are both complete stories, you don't have to worry about the rapture coming before you finish reading them!
It seems it just might be that long before the last book comes out - when? About nine years after the first one!

I am a HUGE fan of Left Behind! I've been reading since December 1995 and even have first printings of all 11 Left Behind books in near mint condition -- my prized possessions! I've read the series all the way through 6 times and will do it again just before Glorious Appearing is released in March 2004. Anyway, I've been seing all the recommendations for In His Image by James BeauSeigneur and then I saw him on the Harvest Show on TV. Just to check it out, I bought the book and it really is a GREAT book. It's not at all like Left Behind even though it's about the end times. Instead you see things more from the perspective of non Christians who don't know what's hapening because things aren't as obvious as they are in Left Behind. Anyway, it looks like a really good series and all three books will be out before Glorious Appearing comes out in March, so it give me some exciting reading while I wait.
Also recommended: In His Image: Book 1 of The Christ Clone Trilogy

Christian authors have different ideas on how Biblical prophecy will occur. Whether it's Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins' LEFT BEHIND series or James BeauSeigneur's CHRIST CLONE TRILOGY, the areas of agreement are much greater than where they disagree. Yes the focus is different - LEFT BEHIND looks at the end times through the eyes of believers and the CHRIST CLONE TRILOGY looks through the eyes of unbelievers - but where it's important, they're in agreement. The most exciting thing is that through these books (and other end times books) Christians are drawing close to Christ and nonChristians are hearing the Gospel and many are accepting Christ!

The LEFT BEHIND SERIES is one of the best series of Christian books I've ever read, and certainly, it's one of the best end times fiction series, although IN HIS IMAGE and THE CHRIST CLONE TRILOGY by James BeauSeigneur are also good. So far, the series has zoomed since book one, when the rapture occurred and those "left behind" were forced to grapple with the implications of missing friends and family members. I love this series, and I can't wait for the conclusion. Left Behind fans should also read CONQUEST OF PARADISE. It does in one book what Left Behind has taken many to do, and the book presents ideas for the possible rise to power of the antichrist that I've never heard before. If you even like the LEFT BEHIND SERIES just a little bit, then you'll love CONQUEST OF PARADISE! I'm looking forward to reading ARMAGEDDON. It should be one of the most exciting books in the series.

The authors have 'dragged' out the last couple of books and it's very discouraging. They should stick to their earlier trend. However, in spite of this, I am anticipating this new book and will have it in my hands the day it hits the stand. Also, for anybody iterested, The Christ Clone Trilogy series is fantastic and readers of the Left Behind series will love these three books. I had to order them special after I tripped over a old review . They were written over 10 years ago. However, I noticed in BN a few weeks ago, they have been re-released in hard back. I can't recommend them enough. Everybody I have lent them to loved them. Talk about the edge of your seat!!!!!!!

Here it comes again: what I've previously referred to as the evangelical euphoria, wherein countless and ostensibly "crazed" evangelicals storm the bookstores for their copies of a recently-released Left Behind novel by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. In this case it's book number 11, Armageddon: The Cosmic Battle of the Ages.
We all know the routine: the novel releases amongst much media fanfare, people everywhere buy the hardback and audiobooks, the book hits the Amazon.com, USA Today and New York Times fiction bestseller lists for a few months, and eventually the hoopla disintegrates only to be revived by the release of the next volume.
Reviews of Armageddon will cover this approximate range:
- Yes-yes-it's-the-best-ever-can't-wait-for-the-next-volume! ...
- Just-okay-but-the authors are-really-really-pushing-it-with-this-twelve-book-thing ...
- I-used-to-really-like-these-books-but-after-book-number-X-I-started-setting-fire-to-my-autographed-copies ...
- This-is-horrible-theology,-just-horrible,-and-me-a-Christian-myself-and-all,-just-horrible ...
- Not to mention the good-natured grumblings from the occasional irritable Atheist who can't believe a "religious fiction" series is stomping everything else in the fiction market.
Armageddon resembles The Remnant more than any other series novel: unlike previous Left Behind installments, since Desecration plot has become more important than characters. Jenkins' aloof, severely journalistic obituary-like writing style hasn't changed. Some inappropriate humor is inserted in the most ridiculous places. And I fear I'm not the only one who can't get over a demon named "Cankerworm." Please, there should be a CBA-spearheaded petition to allow demon-naming rights to Frank Peretti alone.
