Book Description
Book 1 in the best-selling Left Behind series is now available in mass paper. Airline pilot Captain Rayford Steele guides his terror-filled 747 back to the ground with more than 100 seats empty except for clothes, jewelry, eyeglasses, shoes, and socks. Steele finds that his wife and 12-year-old son have vanished, but he and his college-age daughter, Chloe, have been left behind. He and Cameron "Buck" Williams, who had been on Rayford's plane, launch a frantic search for the truth.

    pure l'anticristo ci mancava!

    questa roba qui ha senso solo se deve essere criticata e se deve fare da motore primo a una serie di dibattiti sull'argomento. altrimenti potete sempre usarla dopo natale, per mettere via le palline una per una.
    che spreco di carta...

    Quelli che sono rimasti!

    Questa saga che ha 12 volumi principali più non so quanti fb e fw non ha catturato l'interesse degli italiani.

    Questa saga che ha 12 volumi principali più non so quanti fb e fw non ha catturato l'interesse degli italiani.

    Forse perché è stata editata da Norda, casa editrice di nicchia, forse perché a scriverlo sono due pastori protestanti, e noi siamo un paese (?!?) di cattolici, forse non è stata presentata bene.

    Fatto sta che ho iniziato a leggere i quattro volumi in italiano e poi ho ordinato tutta la serie in inglese!

    I due autori sono decisamente antesignani del battage che gira intorno al 2012 e si inseriscono a pieno titolo nel filone dei millenaristi...

    Non voglio rovinarvi la serie, ma immaginate solo questo: l'Apocalisse di Giovanni (Nuovo testamento) non è affatto una allegoria. Traccia quasi giorno per giorno quello che ci accadrà prima del ritorno di Cristo. 7 anni dove chi non è stato assunto in cielo il primo giorno, patirà tribolazioni a non finire perché ci sarà il regno dell'anticrito. Il tutto corroborato da esegesi e versetti biblici!
    Un buon mix, ben presentato, solo in alcuni capitoli stucchevole o troppo lungo.

    Un bel modo di "spaventarsi"!

    Left Behind

    A unique angle to the traditional apocalyptic thriller. It starts out pretty weak and at times feels a little preachy and repetitive, but ultimately gets interesting enough towards the end to encourage me to give the second book a look.

    Interesting read. I don't know about any of this church stuff but if all of that stuff is actually in the bible, it's kind of a neat story to put it together. I don't feel like the characters act "correctly" sometimes like they would if this actually happened, but it's the author's story, not mine, so I guess I don't get a say. It does get pretty repetitive with all the religion stuff over and over so you sort of have to read through that stuff fast to enjoy it.

    The really creepy part though - and this has nothing to do with my political affiliation - but I keep picturing the anti-christ character as Obama, even though they aren't described to look anything alike. It just keeps popping into my head that way as they describe him politically.

    I started reading the Left Behind series many years ago. The first book is the most impressed one – it helps me to think about the chaotic and messy of life without Jesus in the ending time of the World. How struggle and awful to be in a life without Jesus in the end of the World and how sad is the human did not repent but to worship the evil. May God helps us to stay and rest in Him forever and ever.
