Format: Hardcover
In this volume edited by Forbes and Kilde, we have six contributors who walk a fine line. On the one hand they objectively point out the main points that LaHaye and Jenkins make. On the other hand they observe where they and others differ from the perspectve and biblical interpretation of LaHaye and Jenkins. Above all, they strugle to explain the series' popularity! A wonderfully balanced treatment that anyone interested in the Left Behind series should read!

Format: Hardcover
The two editors have assembled a very helpful collection of essays on not only the "Left Behind" books by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, but on the historical background and "culture" underlying the books.

Contributors include persons such as Stanley Grenz (author of books such as A Primer on Postmodernism), Yaakov Ariel (author of Evangelizing the Chosen People: Missions to the Jews in America, 1880 - 2000 (H. Eugene and Lillian Youngs Lehman Series)), and Amy Johnson Frykholm (author of Rapture Culture: Left Behind in Evangelical America).

Essays include, "A Historical Look at Millennial Thought," "A Comparative Theologies Discussion of the Second Coming," "A Historical Discussion of Jewish-Christian Relations," and "A Literary Discussion of Millennarian Fiction."

Here are some quotations from the book:

"The second notable predecessor is the film 'A Thief in the Night' ... Many mainline Protestant and Catholic youth who were raised in that era never heard of the movie, but among the evangelical subculture in the United States almost EVERYONE remembers it vividly... Yet 'A Thief in the Night,' although enormously influential in the evangelical subculture, never reached far beyond it." (Pg.
