A Good "End-Times" Book for Christians,
This review is from: Left Behind: A Novel of the Earth's Last Days (Left Behind No. 1) (Paperback)
The idea of the book is great, though done before. The way this book is written though, basically, chronicals the events that take place in the "end-times" as described in the Bible.
The book revolves around some central characters. They all are involved with the church in one way or another. Eventually you see most of them "converted" into Christians. As they are they feel that their "mission" is to convert others. There also is some romantic "tension" thrown into the mix. The characters aren't all developed too well but I still felt a connection with them.
I enjoyed this book and think that many others will too. Although this book, I feel, was written mainly for Christians. There is no subtlety in the message. Everything is taken almost verbatim from the Bible. It doesn't give you a lot of "food for thought". For that I recommend James BeauSeigneur's "The Christ Clone Trilogy". "Left Behind" is pretty straight forward and a great beginning to the series. Highly recommended for Christians.

I just logged on here to ask the same thing. I bought this book at a used-book sale for my 17yo son because he likes sci-fi, I'd never heard of it before. Is it appropriate for teenagers?

I have been hearing that since the early 70s. Tim LaHaye should be stoned as a false prophet.
