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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
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 might have given the series five stars if there weren't any grammatical or factual errors. And I might have given it five stars if I was Christian, but I think when an atheist like me stands up and shouts to the world about how good these books are, four stars is a reasonable rating.
The individual sub-plots move along at a nice pace, similar to John Grisham's and Tom Clancy's writing. And there are plenty of cliff-hangers. One of the great things about this collection is that one need not slow down for a moment to continue to the next book; a few extra swipes and the story keeps moving along.
While I found some of the biblical passages repetitious and tedious (after all, I'm atheist), I also found LaHaye's explanations of how Old and New Testament passages can be tied together to explain "Revelation" regardless of how much editing the Bible had over the centuries.
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.
This book is a must read for anyone. It give a glimpse of a possible scenario of where our world is headed.
The series is wonderfully written and very difficult to put down. You will quickly relate to the characters in the story as they are very real.
Regardless of if you are a believer or not, this series will certainly make you think.
