Apollyon: The Destroyer Is Unleashed (Left
Behind No. 5) by Tim Lahaye, Jerry B. Jenkins
Apollyon: The Destroyer Is Unleashed, by Tim
LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, is another suspenseful chronicle of
those left behind after the rapture of the saved.
As the book opens, Hattie Durham, the former
airline attendant and mistress of the antichrist, Nicolae Carpathia,
is wracked with confusion about what to do with her illegitimate
child, whose birth date is coming due.
Rayford Steele, the airline pilot who flies
Carpathia's plane, is ambivalent about the mounting evidence that
his late wife, Amanda, may have been a false believer.
Buck, the ace newspaper reporter, and Chloe,
his wife, are debating whether to have a child when the future of
the world is so uncertain. And all of the world's thousands of
believers are gathering in Jerusalem for a stadium rally, which will
lead to a showdown with Nicolae Carpathia.
Believers are increasingly relying on the
Internet for underground communication, and most of them are
becoming more and more tempted by violence as a way of battling the
forces of evil overtaking the world.
But demon locusts are shortly dispatched as a
divine plague to attack those who do not have the seal of God on
their foreheads; this buys the believers a little bit of time to
solve their respective personal crises, all of which end in ways
that will keep you riveted until the last page. --This text refers
