Publisher's Summary

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!

The Antichrist is assembling his massive armies and preparing for one final struggle. Hunkered down at Petra with more than one million members of the Jewish Remnant, the Tribulation Force joins the believers in turning eyes to the heavens. For only the Glorious Appearing of Christ can stop the Antichrist from ascending the throne of God.

how a write about the Re-Appearing of christ?

the aurthors took sn almost impossible concept and turned it into one of their BEST books. the story moves almost too fast. i couldn't but it down. the biblical prophecy flows as part of the story. i would give it a 10 but the system only allows 5. this is the pinnicle of the series and a must read!!!!!!!!!

Fiction, but a powerful message

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.

Gloriously disappointing

I wish I had gotten the abridged version as this thing is drawing on and on. I've listened to all the previous installments and can honestly say that ever since Frank Mueller left (man, I miss him!) that's when the series "jumped the shark". I don't think Frank could have even brought it all back to life because the storylines have just degraded over the years.

Why, after all the installments, did the narrator have to mispronounce "Petra" during this one? He must have said "pee-tra" no less than 100 times! Very annoying.

It was also very "preachy". In fact, you'd think the book was to first explain Revelations, and then to have a story. All too often a character would ask a question and an expert would jump right in and reply in all the glorious detail. Too predictable, used too often.

The first quarter of the book was spent describing the pain Rayford Steele was in. Okay, we get it! He was in pain! And yes, Jesus is all powerful so there's no need to explain that He's able to do magnificent things so frequently and to speak to everybody at the same time so often. I just got the feeling the authors said, "Hey, we've got all this time, so let's fill it with something."

Get the abridged version.

Excellent Book; Bad Narrator

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.

POWERFUL, A Fantastic Read for the Christian.

Very well written, gives several Bible scriptures to explain things, How Carpathia gets his and just a great ends. Only Thumbs down is the ending could have explained more detait such as Buck and his wife meeting their son Kenny again. They should of added more detail on the various meetings, seeing friends again.. An example is when Pinkerton Stevens ( Steve Plank) arrives,
they should of explain how his deform Face, etc was dealt with. Was he restored to his self before being crushed in the earthquake, etc....Still just a GREAT BOOK

an absolutely tremendous series of books!

this is my second time through, first time paperback this time audiobook. I'm sure that I will listen to them again and again. thoroughly as enjoyed the first time around! the second time around, I was able to glean a little bit more information then I did the first time. and I'm sure that will continue with each successive listening. I think these books should be listened to or read by anyone of any kind of faith, from The atheist through somebody is high as a preacher or priest and everybody in between! l loved these books! thank you too Tim LaHaye and Jerry B Jenkins for writing these.
