Reviews - What do customers think about The Search (Left Behind: The Kids #9)?

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.
I am a parent, a homeschooler, a conservative, and a committed Christian. I say all this up front so that my criticism of this series will be understood.

As the series continues, so does the level of my reservation. It appears to this parent that the authors are increasingly engaging in the trivialization of an extremely serious subject; namely leading souls to Christ. Whether one accepts pre-tribulation, pre-millenial dispensationalism or not (and I do not) the End of Time is not going to be a time of comic-book adventure. It will be deadly serious -- and the longer this series progresses, the more I wonder if this is properly realized.

To reiterate my position:

I believe in presenting the truth to my children to the best of my ability -- and I well know that I am a flawed and imperfect vessel.

This means the truth of the Bible -- not the opinion of an extreme minority, even if that minority has achieved a certain millenial popularity.

This means the truth of Church History -- warts and all. When Church History is honestly portrayed, one quickly sees that it is not 2000 years of "Bible-believers vs. Roman Catholics" but rather 2000 years of good and evil, truth and error, advances and retreats -- but always pressing onward toward the Kingdom.

This means the truth of Secular History -- and understanding that for most of the last 2000 years, there was no distinction between Church and Secular History!

This means the truth of what comprises good literature vs. poor literature -- and this series increasingly does not represent the quality of material I want my children to handle. I realize that all children learn differently, especially when it comes to reading. This being said, I want my children to stretch beyond their preconceived limitations. The quality of these books certainly does not stretch the limits of what the 9-12
age-group is capable of.

Truth is frequently painful and sometimes scary.

HOWEVER, I do NOT believe in deliberately frightening children into accepting or rejecting a particular opinion or viewpoint. It appears to this parent that such religious "scare tactics" are precisely what is being engaged in with these books.

My children know about heaven and hell. They know what it requires to end up in either of those destinations. They understand that hell is a pretty scary place. But I choose to teach them in a positive, rather than in a negative vein. Being "scared straight" is imperfect contrition. Granted, it beats no contrition at all -- but it results in fear rather than love.

This is what this series appears to accomplish: salvation through fear, rather than salvation through acceptance of the love of the God of Love. (Not to mention a disregard for the legitimacy of other Christian traditions.)

Parents, pay attention to what your children read. Teach them about the love of God, not only through your words but through the example of your life. But don't try to frighten them into the Kingdom.

"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it."

176 Pages of Pure Nonsense!  Sep 5, 2001
Well, the authors did it again... This one must have been channeled to them in one night. All the books in this ridiculous series belong in the 9 - 12 age group! Move on... please! Don't you guys have enough money by now? How much more can you milk out of the gullible Christian community?
The search and the apocolypse  Aug 5, 2000
This was a great read. Very intense from start to finish, I really liked the way that the older trib force is finally brought back into the picture. Continue to read them all and if you have not accepted Christ and are saved then you should be after reading this book. Also take the time to look at revelation and see if it is true. Do not take the authors word for it. Check it out.
Excellent  Jul 6, 2000
I read this book the first day it came out. I have to say thatthis was an excellent book. It kept you on the edge of your seat.The horses of the appocalypse are on the lose and this is a second book showing the impact from them. Ryan and his new friend are cought in one of the most exciting adventures yet. Untill the next book. It is amazing how many loses these kids will have with not much time left. They are now fugitives. The GC are after them. What will happen. I have read all the books in the adult and kids series and I have yet to be dissapointed.
