From the Back Cover
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.

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!

When I began reading this book, I was a little hazy on what had happened in the previous books. I still remembered the major events, but some minor events of importance I was lost on. I didn't remember a couple of the characters (ones that had been recently introduced). After 50 pages I remembered what I needed to and the context filled me in on the rest and the story started to really get going.
I've noticed complaints about the actions of some characters. The only one who I think acted out of character was Chloe. Her actions at the beginning of the book were both stupid, and I think a little out of character. It served the plot, though, so we can gloss over it. There were some surprises in character action near the end, but these were explained well enough that I don't feel as if they were misplaced.
The usual complaints about the series apply to this book. The quality of writing is not that great, I still have problems with naming one of the primary characters "Buck", and much of the books seem to be heavy handed. However, when I'm reading the book I forget all about that and I can't put it down. There is something incredibly compelling about the Left Behind series. Maybe it is seeing God take such a prominent role in a popular novel. Maybe it is just how quickly and easily the series reads, but there is something about it that makes me want to keep reading and gets me involved in the story. Maybe it is God working through these books, if such a thing is possible.
The story begins late in the Tribulation. A plague of darkness and pain is on the city of New Babylon, the capitol of the Anti-Christ, Nicolae Carpathia.Read more ›
