ANOTHER LAHAYE FIVE STAR Mar 8, 2007
THE LEFT BEHIND PREQUEL IS A MUST AND AN EXCELLENT READ AGAIN FROM TIM. I AM GLAD I READ THE ENTIRE LEFT BEHIND SERIES BEFORE I READ THE PREQUEL.

Fills in Blanks; Answers some Questions Nov 29, 2006
This book, of course, is part of the prequel to the Lahaye/Jenkins fictional series that is based on the biblical account of the world's end. As with the series, this is no work of literary genius, but it is thought provoking and may encourage the reader to pick up the Bible to see what's really in there. If you are not a Christian, you might not enjoy this, or any Left Behind related title, but I wouldn't discourage you from giving it a try. If you have an anti-Christian bent, this is not the book for you. Fans of the Left Behind Series will find answers to some lingering questions, and have some blanks filled in.
It's only fiction. Jul 15, 2006
I read the Left Behind series and enjoyed it, although it did get just a little long. I have read the first two books of the prequel and will probably read the next one. This searies is listed under 'Fiction'. That to me means it isn't true and the writer can do what he/she wants with it. LaHaye and company do tend to push their personal beliefs in their books but they are 'their books' so they have the right but I don't have to agree. The books are entertaining although they are not as good as the Left Behind series.
Why continue to be deceived... Jun 26, 2006
Tim LaHaye, Jerry Jenkins, and others in the Pre-Trib circle, such as Ed Hindson, Tommy Ice, Chuck Missler, etc., continue to put forth the same deceptions that Hal Lindsey popularized decades ago. The notion of a pre-tribulation rapture is foreign to scripture, it is foreign to the teachings of the early Church, and it is grooming the Church for destruction through ignorance and lack of preparation for what is really coming. These men are novices and not prophecy "experts" or "scholars" by any stretch of the imagination; they are those who tickle the ears of gullible Christians. Why continue to be deceived? Tim Cohen, in his excellent book, "The AntiChrist and a Cup of Tea," provides biblically sound and testable evidence to show that the coming AntiChrist is known NOW. Not only that, the same author (Tim Cohen) has now put out the strongest presentation on the whole issue of the rapture EVER offered to the saints of God in Christ: "The REAL Rapture". If you really want to know the truth about the timing of the coming rapture, then you need to hear Tim Cohen's "The REAL Rapture" (based on a volume in his forthcoming "Messiah, History, and the Tribulation Period" series (see Prophecy House's web site, prophecyhouse dot com, for details on these items).
