The smash hit Left Behind saga, the best-selling inspirational series of all time, comes to its extraordinary conclusion in this thrilling audiobook. Glorious Appearing picks up the action following the cosmic battle of the ages, and not all the members of the Tribulation Force have survived!

I am a major fan of the entire series. I do feel that it has been drawn out a bit long, but it is a wonderful telling of the returning of our Lord. I was enthralled by the Glorious Appearing, but I did find that the lead up to the appearing of Jesus was more impacting that his actual appearing. In fact, it was almost casual in its telling. Still, it is amazing to consider. I strongly recommend the book, if the listener can get over that the choice for narration was really poor. The narrator does not have the voice or range to deal with this information. He has a very squeaky and sand-paper-like delivery. Get past that and it is an excellent book.

Told from the point of view of the men who waged this steel-shattering battle, The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors captures Navy pilots attacking enemy battleships with makeshift weapons and sacrificial valor, a veteran commander improvising tactics never taught in Annapolis, and young crews from across America rising to an impossible challenge.

I have been listening to audo books for quite a while now and this is by far one of the best I have ever heard. The narrator adds dimension to the book that a reader could not possibly generate. This is a truly wonderful story, not just about a great battle, but of great people. It transcends a war story and really is a story of bravery and courage. Needless to say I highly recommend it. The listener will definitely not be disappointed. The only down side is that some of the chapters are long and you will find it hard to get out of the car when you get to the office! :)
