Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins in their book "Glorious Appearing" Book Twelve in the Left Behind series published by Tyndale House Publishers brings us to the end of days. There are some who believe that the rapture will signal the beginning of the seven years of tribulation. This is untrue. The rapture, or the removal of the believers, is the signal for the events that trigger the tribulation to occur. The clock starts counting when the antichrist signs the peace treaty with Israel. In "Glorious Appearing" the whole seven years from that moment are almost finished and the devil knows his time is short. So Nicolae, the antichrist, tries to throw everything that he has at the believers taking refuge at Petra. I could mention names here but that would tell you who survives and you really want to find out for yourselves. Safe to say there really is the triumphal return of Jesus. Mankind had seven years to accept Him and now He has to separate those that did from those that did not; the sheep from the goats. Those that did not have to follow Nicolae to the pit where they will spend the next one thousand years before being released for one more attack then cut off for eternity apart from Him. This was always the purpose of these books to show how terrible this last time will be and to see who will accept God now rather than wait until later and suffer through tribulation. Dr. LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins provide a fictional background for the real events that the final book of The Bible, Revelation, speak about: the end times. The Biblical accuracy in"Glorious Appearing" is flawless and the story is a page turning thriller. There are wonderful themes: salvation, faith in what you cannot see and who is in charge despite appearances to the contrary. I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down. Mr. Jenkins is an excellent writer and knows how to twist your nerve endings as he tightens the suspense. I am looking forward to "Kingdom Come" the concluding sequel to this series.

By the time I got to this one I was ready for the series to be over. I knew what was going to take place as far as Jesus was coming back and the believers would be with him. The book was good but I liked some of the others better.

This book and the whole set is just wonderful. The characters are so real. I could picture what was going on while reading it. The entire series is a must! It was so dramatic that I read the entire series of 12 books in 2 months. Others have told me that it took them an enire year.

Each book individually had great drama and kept you interested, but towards the end the books started to drag on a bit too long. I enjoyed the series, but wouldn't read again.

This is an excellent book and a nice wrap-up to an extraordinary series. To answer a previous reviewers question: 6x6x6=216

I should have left this book behind at the library! Out of all 12 books, this one was by far the most ridiculous. I can't believe I read them all - I'm still not sure how I managed that feat!The authors stretched the arrival of Jesus to 400 pages. I could have done it in four sentences. (Jesus comes. Bad people die. Good people are reunited with their loved ones. The end.) At this point, the characters are almost cartoonish. Carpathia and Leon are so ridiculous, they could have been in the movie Dumb and Dumber. Even Jesus was disappointing - and he was Jesus! I think I'm done with these books. No 'Left Behind: The Kids,' no prequels. I think the authors missed the money they were making so they continued the saga for as long as possible. They will have to continue it without me!

last of series, enjoyed the first book but couldn't wait for the series to finally come to an end. As the series progressed a large part of the book was spent reviewing the past.

All of the Left Behind books are provacative and page turning. I read them all at least once a year.

The final of the series. Iw was terrific...and left more questions to answer. Writing well with true meaning.

This is the final book in the left behind series. The book is still not well written, but it was able to build suspense. Like the people in the book, I kept anticipating the Glorious Appearing. And the story does keep moving. The book begins with the Battle already started and was able to surprise me (I won't be a spoiler). And ends with Jesus getting ready to start his reign. They do tie up all the story lines. And get most of the biblical prophesies in. But it seemed sort of rushed at the end. Mainly so they could get in what they interpret the Bible to say. But we pay the price in that they neglect the personal storylines (feelings) of the main characters.

I view these books in the Left Behind series as fiction. I am not a christian and I have absolutely no belief system that mirrors the authors. SO, I am looking at these books from really, more of a fantasy/paranormal slant.And I have stuck with the story since the beginning - it has become like a train wreck for me. I/m cringing as I see the next novel coming - not wanting to read it for the pain it will cause - yet I can't stop myself from it anyway.I enjoyed the story premise from the beginning. IT has been increasingly difficult for me to continue though. The writing is so stilted and to me without true character building that nearly everyone of thr characters thru out are one dimensional for me.I think at least 4 of the books were stretched out far beyond what they should have been in order to get enough pages so they could wrap it up as a complete book. This series could have, should have, been so much shorter. It really dragged.

Awesome book to end the excellent series! True, some of the writing is lacking at times, but all in all, for a fictional series, it was worth the time invested to get through all the books. Recommended reading!

The final book in the series finds our characters living through the return of Christ to set up his millennial kingdom. It's one of the better books in the series even if it suffers from the usual shallow characters and uneven plotting.

Well written through the development of interesting characters, this book was one I looked forward to returning to each day for my reading time! I? lingered and read all about the authors when I? finished it because I? didn’t want it to be over. Read it!

This is a very good book to read if you don't understand whats going on in the end times. I had trouble understanding what happens during the tribulation but ever since i have read the left behind series i've understood the end times a whole lot better
