It is the final year of the Great Tribulation. The Tribulation Force is holding out in their San Diego safe house, but in reality, there is no place left that can be called safe. All the world's remaining armies have gathered in the Middle East, poised for the battle of the ages and preparing for the mighty beasts of the apocalypse. The wasted shell of once-beautiful planet Earth has been reduced to a ticking time bomb, staggering under the weight of judgments from heaven. Mankind is hurtling toward the Battle of Armageddon and the ultimate showdown between the forces of good and evil. Who will survive at the end of the world?

If you keep in mind that this is fiction based on the Bible you will have the right frame of reference. While a lot of the story does have ties back into the Bible it does not intend on replacing it. Its an easy place for some to "get the bug" for faith although ultimately they need to be pointed to the only true authoritative source, the Bible.
I thoroughly enjoyed the series and recommended it to many friends. Unlike the movies, I found the books well done, and well produced.
Like most people I love this series - the first 4 or so books were great but these later ones make entire story lines out of the smallest "incidents" and it's clear the author(s) are struggling to keep the series going. Armageddon isn't even a story - you could completely skip this book and still walk away from the series without having missed anything significant. I will keep listening to the end - but this book (and the last 2) have been terrible. If only they could all be as good as the first 4.
