Left Behind #8 Death Strike May 22, 2006
This book is about four kids, Judd, Vicki, Lionel, and Ryan. They are going through the last seven years left on earth after the Rapture. None of them have parents because they were either taken during the Rapture or they died. They have all become Christians and are beginning the fight towards the antichrist, Nicolae Carpathia. Their pastor Bruce was just killed in a bombing in Chicago, and now they have to face the future without parents or a pastor.
I thought this book was very good. It helped me become a better Christian and better believer of Christ. This book would be good for people who are Christians or people who want to learn more about the Rapture and about being a Christian. Reading this book helped me to be more aware and know more about the Rapture also. I think the lesson is to accept Christ before it is too late because you never know when your last day will be.
Series for adults now rewritten for teens Dec 25, 2004
I have always enjoyed the adult series of Left Behind books. The kids books are just as good. The kids interact with the characters from the adult series, experience the same events, etc. However, since the main characters are teens, these books can appeal to younger readers. So far, the stories haven't had the ups and downs that the adult series has had. The adult series has books that are a lot more boring than others. The kids series seems to be good in every book. These are not for really young kids, but would be appropriate for young teens. I enjoy them and I am an adult.
Hooked on Left Behind Oct 10, 2003
Death Strike is the 8th book in the LBTK series, and probably the most crammed, adventure filled book, in the whole series to date (#32, and counting). We last left off with Vicki being taken back to Northside Detention Center. After a run-in with trouble, Vicki is left injured within the first few pages, and recieves word that there is someone that would like to adopt her! Who could it be, and will she want to go with them? Also, Vicki finds friendship within a girl named Janie, but wonders if she will ever believe the truth. Meanwhile, back home, Judd, Lionel, and Ryan are left amazed through the teachings of Pastor Bruce Barnes. With new security measures being brought up within Nicolae High, can they really risk bringing back "The Underground", since they have witnessed the trouble it can bring? With the return of a new friend, Judd decides to travel to Israel with Bruce, but when a mysterious illness strikes the pastor, the Young Trib Force is left to deal with the loss of a great friend, and the disapperance of another. World Word 3 begins, and it's going to be a rocky ride. Truly a favorite in the series, Death Strike delivers and really set the standards I've put the series up to. Always suspensful, and always inpirational, this series is one that you can't afford not to read.
The Young Trib Force Faces War May 20, 2003
This eighth installment in the series about a group of teens struggling to survive the Tribulation and spread the Truth of the existence of God to a world caught in the Antichrist's web of deceit is one of the most exciting in the series so far. Death Strike starts one year after the events of book 7. The Antichrist's regime has gained complete control of the world, decieving people into thinking that Nicolae Carpathia is the savior of the world. The young Trib Force sees this man as he really is - the most evil man on Earth. They are determined to resist the power that this regime has over the world.
Vicki Byrne, now 15 years old, is still detained in the detention center, where she has been fighting for her life for one year. Judd, Lionel, Ryan, John, and Mark are continuing their undercover ministry at Nicolae High. Judd, now 17 years old, sets a new goal that could put the entire group in the greatest danger yet. At his graduation ceremony, he proclaims the message of the Bible and how to recieve God's salvation. He is dragged out of the ceremony by Global Community gaurds and given no credit. Then conflict arises, the rise of a rebel group fighting against Carpathia's regime triggers war and Judd, Mark and Vicki, who finally makes it out of the detention center, are almost killed by a sudden attack of GC soldiers against a gathering of Militia rebels. Then global catastrophe strikes. When the GC military bomb the Militia's nike base, World War 3 begins, leaving the young Trib Force fighting for their lives. As GC fighter planes soar over Chicago dropping bombs on buildings and neighborhoods, the kids desperately search for Mark, whom they fear is dead. They find him, barely alive, but alive nonetheless. But the kids are given a heartbreaking challenge when one of their closest friends is killed by the bombings.
Book 8 in the Left Behind Kids series is one of the most suspenseful books in this series so far. It kept me on the edge of my seat to the very end, and the cliffhanger ending left me hanging. I highly reccomend this series to anyone.
I give 5 stars to all Feb 18, 2002
I like to read a variety of books, but since I have come upon the adult and kid's series of left behind, I just can't really get into another book until I know I have read the last one of both series.
