Reviews - What do customers think about Desecration: Antichrist Takes the Throne (Left Behind No. 9)?
Please people get a life Mar 28, 2007
I've read the entire series, I've watched two of the three movies, and I've listened to most of the dramatized audio series. (the first 6 anyway) So for those of you that are insisting that this is all unbiblical please listen closely.
THIS IS FICTION!!!!! CLAIMING THAT THIS IS UNBIBLICAL IS LIKE SAYING THAT STAR WARS DOESN'T FOLLOW THE LAWS OF SOUND IN SPACE!
And if in retrospect it brings ONE person to christ, does it matter? The pre trib/post trib "war" has been going on forever, if this is how these authors wish to portray the return of christ more power to them.
Oh and as in a review, all the books rock!
EXCELLENT SERIES, MUST HAVE.... Mar 8, 2007
LIKE THE PREVIOUS LEFT BEHIND BOOKS, YOU CANNOT PUT THIS DOWN. I READ IT IN ONE SITTING AND AM MORE DETERMINED TO GET THE WORD OF JESUS CHRIST TO OTHERS SO THEY DO NOT HAVE TO EXPERIENCE THE TRIBULATION.
Addendum to other negative reviews Feb 9, 2007
I largely agree with many of the negative reviews that have been posted already, so I won't go into great detail about why I do not like this novel (or this series, for that matter). However, I did want to add that this book is different from others in the series in the level of violence that is condoned by the Christian characters in their efforts to thwart the Antichrist. There is virtually no reflection on the use of lethal force, and all the main characters seem to silently come to a consensus that God approves of their behavior. I would submit that this is a grey area that deserves much introspection, something the authors do not allow whatsoever.
Additionally, in some respects the book plays like a revenge drama, with the Tribulation Force, along with God himself, relishing their chance to strike back against those who do not share their religion. It is an ugly scene, and certainly contradictory to much New Testament theology. I am, of course, not defending the actions of the Antichrist, but shouldn't Christians hold themselves to a higher standard? I do not believe that responsible humans--Christian or non-Christian alike--should endorse this sort of thoughtless fiction.
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).
Unbiblical and bad writing make for one star Jun 19, 2006
This book is so flawed in every which way, it is hard to know where to begin. First of all, we are living in the end times, and when Jesus comes, that's all she wrote, folks. There's no seven years, no Christians being zapped up, etc. This is our Second Chance on Earth. No tribulation. This book takes figurative visions and tries to apply it literally, and does it poorly. Reading this book made me think that if this was true, then what's the point of trying to be a Christian. Why not just live your life the way you want to, and then when people zap out of thin air, change your life. It's ridiculous and sends the wrong message. Plus, the writing is for second graders with no redeeming characteristics to it. But I really don't think the author's care at this point (seeing how many millions they've made printing lies). My recommendation is to read the bible instead of this series; then you'll get truth and the bible is probably shorter (and much better writing). Man, not even Kirk Cameron could save this train wreck.
