While the story surrounding the end-time events depicted in the Left Behind series is definitely extra-Biblical and fictionalized, the timeline of the events is based on the well-researched and Biblically accurate work of Dr. Tim LaHaye. Not all Christians will agree on the timeline and description of endtime events, but Dr. LaHaye's theological work on this subject is exhaustive and well-respected. The third installment in the series, Nicolae, continues the series with no reduction in Jenkins' mastery of dialogue and breathtaking suspense. As a side note, it always makes me giggle to see the psychopathic anti-faith ranting of pseudo-intellectual pinheads who try to minimize the seriousness of the issue of faith while hypocritically spending the time necessary to write an offensive and inane comment. If the issue of faith is that repugnant and idiotic to you, why bother? Go back to your mind-meld with Nietzsche and Richard Dawkins, and leave people of faith in peace.
... that there are people out there who take this stuff seriously. I like the series, not because this is a great writing, which it definitely is not, but because I'm interested in mass self-delusion and evangelical Christian conspiracy thinking. If this is your interest, this is a must-read. There is nothing "Christian" about the Left Behind series, just looney American-style Christian tribal paranoia - really a fun read if weren't for the fact that so many people actually are expecting the Rapture and the Tribulation, and are actively praying for it. Oh Lord, deliver us from evil masking as the righteous. Fascinating that the only interesting character in the series is Carpathia, the anti-Christ.
