Reviews - What do customers think about Nicolae High (Left Behind: The Kids Volume 05)?
Christian propaganda? Yeah right. Feb 26, 2005
Mark Moore has it wrong. This book is Christian, but it is not propaganda. It tells about something that I (and many other people) believe will happen. Mark says that it is "ludicrous" to believe that the world would not be in chaos if all the Christians disappeared. Give me a break! Let's see millions around the world disappear at the same time and without warning and not have chaos. Especially when some top leaders could disappear as well. I think Mark's accusations are what's ludicrous. "An evil religion perpetuated by zealous idiots"?! Yeah right! Christians are as normal as anyone else. The book of Revelation in the Bible only takes "20 pages"(as Mark puts it) because it only gives you enough detail to understand what is going to happen. In the Left Behind books, it takes much longer because it is put into real life situations.
As for the quality of the book, I enjoyed it, but as some others have stated, it is kind of corny. The adult series is definitely more enjoyable. Otherwise, these are good books. Read and enjoy.
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.
School's back in Session! Oct 11, 2003
With the antichrist reveiled, school's back in session, and the Young Trib Force discovers exactly how hard it is to be a Christian and live after the rapture! Judd and Vicki start attending Nicolae High, and find allies in cousins Mark and John. Lionel and Ryan go back to Global Community Junior High, but still continue to fight! Can they ever be like brothers? The four teens soak in as much information as they can to help them survive through these rough times. With the help of Pastor Bruce Barnes, the four learn more than they ever knew before. The fifth installment of the LBTK books again delievers, and as always, I was left on the edge of my seat!
The Young Trib Force Goes Back to School Apr 12, 2003

Judd, Vicki, Lionel, and Ryan are the post-Rapture Christians who were left alone when the global vanishings occured.

The authorities hunt them down and attempt to persecute them. How long will they be able to avoid the authorities and share their faith with their peers? Read Nicolae High and find out!
More persecution fantasies from Jenkins and La Haye Jul 22, 2002
"Nicolae High," by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye, is number 5 in the "Left Behind: The Kids" series of short novels for young readers. "Nicolae" continues the overarching plot of the series, which is inspired by Christian fundamentalist theology. The book follows the adventures of a group of Christian teenagers during an age of apocalyptic mystery and horror. In "Nicolae," the kids' high school is renamed (as indicated by the title) after a powerful world leader, and the faculty begins to implement a new agenda.
Like the other books in the series, "Nicolae" features corny dialogue and ridiculously melodramatic scenes. The message of "Nicolae" seems to be that religious diversity is a bad thing; for the book's heroes, the only legitimate viewpoint is a Christian fundamentalist viewpoint. Further, the book seems to foster Christian fundamentalist fantasies of persecution (the "us against the world" mentality). The idea that American public schools oppress Christian fundamentalists is a key theme here.
Actually, I found the most interesting aspect of "Nicolae" to be a couple of brief references to "Star Trek." These references are ironic, considering the vast gulf between the vision of "Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry and the authors of the "Left Behind: The Kids" series. Approach the second of these two visions with caution.
