Piloting his 747, Rayford Steele is musing about his wife Irene's irritating religiosity and contemplating the charms of his "drop-dead gorgeous" flight attendant, Hattie. First Irene was into Amway, then Tupperware, and now it's the Rapture of the Saints--the scary last story in the Bible in which Christians are swept to heaven and unbelievers are left behind to endure the Antichrist's Tribulation. Steele believes he'll put the plane on autopilot and go visit Hattie. But Hattie's in a panic: some of the passengers have disappeared! The Rapture has happened, abruptly driverless cars are crashing all over, and the slick, sinister Romanian Nicolae Carpathia plans to use the UN to establish one world government and religion. Resembling "a young Robert Redford" and silver-tongued in nine languages, Carpathia is named People's "Sexiest Man Alive." (This reviewer, a former People writer, finds this plot twist plausible.) Meanwhile, Steele teams up with Buck Williams, a buck-the-system newshound, to form the Tribulation Force, an underground of left-behind penitents battling the Antichrist.
Ex-presidential candidate Pat Robertson briefly outsold Michael Crichton with his apocalypse novel The End of the Age (now available on audiocassette), and the similar The Third Millennium sells well, but the Left Behind series is the absolute champion in the race to make the Book of Revelation into racy thriller reading. --Tim Appelo
From Library Journal
On a flight from Chicago to London, several passengers aboard Capt. Rayford Steele's plane suddenly and mysteriously disappear. When Steele radios to London to report the situation, he discovers that the incident on his plane is not an isolated phenomenon but a worldwide occurrence. As Steele begins his search for answers, he learns that the Christ has come to take the faithful with Him in preparation for the coming apocalyptic battle between good and evil and that those who have been left behind must face seven dark and chaotic years in which they must decide to join the forces of Christ or the forces of Anti-Christ. Jenkins, writer-in-residence at Moody Press, and LaHaye (A Nation Without a Conscience, Tyndale, 1994) have written a gripping thriller that captures the anxiety and fear that interpretations of Revelation often inspire. For most libraries.

To be clear, if you buy this you are getting one huge book file that contains all 12 titles, not 12 individual book files.
So, it may seem rather odd that the Kindle progress bar will say something like 18% after you finish the whole first book. And, you can't chuck the prior books off your Kindle (or loan them out) as you move on, since it is all one file.
Each title and every chapter in each title are marked and "go to"-able.
There aren't any extras like whispersync for voice or xray.
It says the title is lendable, but it can't be broken into parts, so whoever you lend it to will have to read all 12 books in 14 days.
Still, if you've never read the books, or just want to read them again, this is an excellent value.
Even if you are not familiar with the book of Revelation, this is still quite a good read. If your spiritual life is lacking or your faith in god is not strong, the series is a real eye-opener. Getting into heaven is more than just being a diligent worker and being nice to people. It is also following the commandments, accepting and placing faith in Jesus as your savior, and being a disciple.
I really wish they would do a complete movie of all 12 books. True they did three movies, but towards the middle to the end would have been good to see in a movie. When I finish the last book I will give a full review of each book.
The way every word flowed perfectly into the next, this series is melodic. I found myself laughing out loud, grieving for lost souls, on the edge of my seat with anticipation, on my knees praying and everything in between.
