Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Great Tribulation unfolds as the forces of evil and the armies of God prepare for mankind's ultimate battle. Millions of Christians are protected by God as the anger of the Antichrist, Nicolae Carpathia, burns against them.

The Earth, now a wasted shell of its former beauty, staggers under the weight of worsening judgments from heaven, while Carpathia turns up the heat on Christ followers and anyone else who does not swear total allegiance with him.

All pretense is gone, even on the part of the Antichrist, as the planet hurtles toward Armageddon and the ultimate showdown between good and evil.

Review:

"On one level, the attraction of the Left Behind books isn't that much different from that of, say, Tom Clancy or Stephen King. The plotting is brisk and the characterizations Manichean. People disappear and things blow up. Revelation is, after all, supremely creepy....Seeing the self-defeating delusions of erstwhile elites exposed may be the greatest pleasure the Left Behind books offer their readers. The plotting alone certainly isn't enough to sustain attention in The Remnant....[S]imple fascination with a good story might have accounted for the [series'] initial success — after all, audiences don't necessarily endorse the politics behind every action adventure they devour. But by the time The Remnant starts, the suspense has pretty much died, because the story has the ultimate deus ex machina. Whenever things look grim for our heroes, when the enemy is closing in and there's nowhere to run, they're saved at the last minute by God....There's not much drama in the repeated victories of an omnipotent being, but that's not the only thing that makes The Remnant sluggish. In order to stretch out the series for so long, Jenkins and LaHaye have larded it with tedious subplots and countless techno-geek scenes....The Remnant has very little in the way of climactic good vs. evil showdowns. While there is a bit of supernatural deviltry...and some martyrdom...most of the story follows members of the Tribulation Force jetting around the globe running various errands. The nuclear annihilation of Chicago rates just a few lines, while the cellphone codes the Force uses to communicate gets several pages." Michelle Goldberg, Salon.com

Synopsis:

While a million people converge on the ancient city of Petra in preparation for the "Glorious Appearing," the Global Community begins to bomb the city, while believers elsewhere in the world face martyrdom at the hands of the Antichrist.
