Take a pound of apocalyptic suspense, add a dash
of conspiracy, a little romance, and you've got a recipe for
When authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins first imagined Left
Behind, their goal was to create "...the first fictional
portrayal of events that are true to the literal interpretation of
Bible prophecy." Left Behind began as a sleeper,
starting slowly and building steadily, selling by word of mouth.
Eventually the book became a bestseller and LaHaye and Jenkins
discovered that the story would take more than one book to tell, so
they continued the tale in Tribulation Force.
Set against the backdrop of the Rapture, in which Jesus has
returned as promised to gather his followers and remove them from
this world, the characters in Tribulation Force must confront
life without their loved ones, struggle with evil unleashed on the
world, and ultimately embrace God's truth for themselves.
Pilot Rayford Steele, his daughter Chloe, journalist Buck
Williams, and pastor Bruce Barnes band together to study the Bible,
pray, and support one another through this time of terror and
uncertainty. They realize that Nicolae Carpathia is the prophesied
Antichrist, as they watch him consolidate his power. Buck and
Rayford find themselves employees of Nicolae, keeping their faith in
Jesus secret so that they can continue to work and share their faith
unhindered while secretly fighting the Antichrist with the other
members of the tribulation force.
The authors have drawn a story of intrigue and adventure set
against a cataclysm of global proportions. Readers captivated by Left
Behind will certainly want to read Tribulation Force.
