A definate must read!!! Aug 21, 2006
Last year, I just started reading The Left Behing Kids Series. Well, at the moment, I knew it was a christian book series, and that was about it. I never knew it was so addictive that I had to read every one of the forty books in the series. It can give you all sorts of different feelings, it will make you cry, it will make you laugh, yada, yada. Well, four teenagers got left behind when all of the believers in Christ went up to heaven.
The four teenagers are: Judd, the Runaway: a boy who was raised in church, had a nice family, nice house, nice life. Never caught the grasp of the teachings in church. Judd's family dissapeared and went to heaven, leaving him behind.
Lionel, The Liar: Same story as Judd's, but Lionel is immature and is younger that Judd.
Vicki, The Rebel: Vicki is the opposite of Judd and Lionel. Known as the creepy girl in school, she was raised in a trailer park, with a somewhat dysfunctional family, dirt poor. She was the only one in her family to be left behind.
Ryan, The Skeptic: Ryan is the youngest one in the foursome, but unlike the others, his family did not disapear. His parents were killed in two different tragic accidents, leaving him alone. His family was not believers, but his best friend was. His best friend had tried to teach him about Christ, but Ryan was skeptical.
Well, the four end up living together, forming the Young Tribulation Force, with the help of Bruce Barnes, a pastor. The try to spread christianity around, in a world that is separated by believers and non-believers.
I highly suggest reading this series, even if you are a believer or not. Give it a chance, you will not regret it.
Great for witnessing! Feb 18, 2005
The Book of Revelation has been the central issue in innumerable debates. As a scholar of Second Coming Prophecies, I must say that LeHaye & Jenkins did an admirable job in sticking to as it was written, not only in revelation, but also in the other Second Coming prophecies that are scattered throughout the Bible. It also places it in an exciting format that will and has attracted many un-believers. There will always be critics of these books, mostly non-Christians who did not even bother picking up the books or the Bible, who will brazenly say, "If you want to know what happens, read John's book of Revelation." In doing so, they show their own lack of reading that very book in the Bible. These stories are wonderful and I highly recommend them to all ages! They are also great witnessing tools because even if the reader doesn't accept Christ now, they will after the church is raptured! May the grace of our Father find you.
There Will be no place to hide! Aug 9, 2004
At no doubt, this will definitely give kids a great point of view towards the rapture through the eyes of four teenagers who are experiencing it themselves. If your kid has questions, and confusions about the Rapture, the Left Behind Kids version is sure to have them understanding it, and also giving them a good story to think about for the near future, and of course, entertainment.
Judd, Vicki, Lionel and Ryan think they know it all. None of them believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, and none believe in God. With Judd a running away from his parents, Vicki rebelling against her parents conversion, Lionel lying about being a Christian, and Ryan skeptisysing about his friends faith, the four will come together to realize there was more to life, and God that was there all the time, they just wouldn't take the time to believe it.
I recieved the first book (which is the first four books in all) for my birthday, and was a little skeptical about them at first. A few months before I had started to read the adult Left Behind books, but to no avail for the fact that they were too old for me (I was twelve at the time). After re-discovering them a month later, I was hooked on them. Not only were they entertaining, but they gave an easy understanding towards the Rapture for kids.
Even if adults have trouble understanding the Rapture and the end times, it'll provide an easy understanding, and have them (as I did) rexamine their faith through these books.
An instant five stars. And remember, if you refuse to believe the Rapture, just make sure you have plenty of places to go afterwards, because there will be no place to hide.
