Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Picking up where The Vanishings left off, Second Chance is just that: at the close of book one, Judd, Vicki, Lionel, and Ryan met up at New Hope Village Church and got the Good News from now-humbled pastor Bruce Barnes (who, despite his degree from Bible college, got left behind after the Rapture for failing to receive Christ, just like the kids). Lionel, nixed by the Messiah on a technicality in book one, jumps at the chance to join the winning team, but the other kids are too angry and confused after watching their world get turned upside down. Book two follows their search for truth as they piece together the wreckage of the Rapture in each of their lives, knowing full well that the end of the world isn't far off--just seven years, according to Bruce, once Israel signs a treaty with the Antichrist. By the book's end, two more Left Behind kids wise up, but one holds out, still too scared and mad to sign on.

The Evangelical Christian science fiction series Left Behind: The Kids is a youth-oriented story line based on Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye's bestselling Left Behind. (Ages 9 to 12) --Paul Hughes

My 12-year-old son just devours these books, and I'm so happy about it! There are too many negative influences in today's society, and these books are nothing but a positive influence, in my opinion. My son says that these books are bringing him closer to God. How many people can say that what entertains their child does that? My son actually puts the Game Cube down to read these books..and believe me, that's a miracle!

Yes, these books are from a Christian perspective, but even a non-Christian would enjoy the good reading.

As a continuation of the ongoing saga of the kids Left Behind, this package rules. Following the Young Tribulation Saints leaves you wanting more. When readers realize that this is a prophesy that will come true, they'll need more. I highly recommend this entire series, not just for kids, but for people that need an easy read and want to know just what God has in store for mankind.

When I read this book it made me realize that God will take care of you even if you have not accepted Him. I suggest that everyone read this book because it gives you a chance to know Him and feel His presence in the character's lives and in yours

LEFT BEHIND Second Chance By Jerry B. Jenkins This book is GREAT if you're a Christian for a belief. I loved this book because it has an excellent use of language and has you sitting on the edge of your seat for the next exciting chapter to begin. This book is realistic fiction. The characters are Jud, Vicky, Ryan and Lionel. You will be upset at some times but it will clear up. I enjoyed this book so much. I hope will if u read it.

Four teenagers are introduced right after the end of the world. Jesus had come back and raptured the true believers. Through the book Judd, Vicki and Lionel all become Christians and work towards their second chance, but Ryan on the other hand has not made up his mind. There were many exciting events in the book, but one major one is that Lionel's uncle died. When Lionel went to identify his uncle, all he found out was that he was not his uncle. This book is very interesting and thought provoking.

I thought Second Chance was a great book. It makes me think a lot more about the Rapture and how awful things will be- disasters, more crime, loneliness. The main characters, Judd, Vicki, Lionel, and Ryan, have all come from Christian homes where all their families were Christians and raptured. I found that the way this book was written made it easy to read. This was a great book because it wasn't boring or difficult to read and it made me think a lot more about my relationship with Christ.

This book is probaly one of the best books I've ever read! It teaches you that if your totally not with Christ... you should be. I recomend this book to all types of readers. This story scary in a good way because the way I think of it teaches you all the practically informs you of just about all the thing that couldhappen if you don't actually follow Christ. (Just like the Pastor). Again I DEFINATLEY recomend this book!

When I started this series, I Thought "Any Other Series". I Had Aleady Read The First Book, But I Read It Again. I Loved It, So I Went To The Public Library And Got This Book, NUMBER 2, And I Could Not Drop It! This Book Is Action Packed AND FULL OF Knowledge For Everyone. This Series Is Not Appropriate For Kids Under 9 Though.
