Item description for The Mark: The Beast Rules the World (Left Behind #8) by Tim LaHaye & Jerry B. Jenkins...
Overview An evil world leader proclaims himself the Antichrist, drawing up plans to mark all human beings, but the members of the Tribulation Force are determined to stop him.
Publishers Description 2001 Christy Award finalist The international fiction series phenomenon continues. Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye pick up the exciting end-times saga where "The Indwelling" left off. The evil world leader Nicolae Carpathia officially takes his place as the Antichrist and begins his three-and-a-half year reign of terror over the earth. Technology provides the means to place the mark of the beast on every human, and the Trib Force scrambles to survive.
From Publishers Weekly In this eighth installment of the bestselling Left Behind series, Satan has
taken full possession of Antichrist Nicolae Carpathia, who demands that all
Global Community citizens bow to him in worship and take his mark on their
foreheads or right hands. This spells trouble for the members of the
Tribulation Force, who have pledged their unswerving allegiance to Christ.
Without the mark of the beast, they face torturous persecution and death;
several of their associates have become martyrs. Hiding in a bombed-out (but
still posh and technologically enviable) Chicago office building, they depend
upon a network of other Christians for food and supplies. The believers' public
enemy status doesn't prevent the swashbuckling men among them from performing
their usual task of rescuing helpless female believers. Armed only with phony
IDs and Bond-like cell phones, they whisk around the world preaching how the
Book of Revelation predicted every calamity that has befallen the planet. There
are some worthwhile moments here, but the authors'' lazy exposition leads to
scenes that don't ring true. When a Christian woman is killed by a supernatural
lightning bolt and her fianc mourns that "no lightning bolt... could
extinguish a love so pure," the sentiment falls flat; their love story has only
been told, never shown, and the doomed woman''s character remains undeveloped.
Fans who have thrilled to the series' repeated car chases, airplane runway
escapes and glitzy technology will find more of the same. Others will earnestly
pray for the hastening of the Glorious Appearing, which will bring the series
to a close. (Nov. 14) Forecast: Tyndale's phenomenal success with The
Indwelling, which debuted at the #1 spot on PW's hardcover fiction bestseller
list on June 5, likely will be repeated with The Mark, although sales for the
former benefited from a "whodunit" mystery that has no parallel in the new
novel. Tyndale has planned a 2.5 million first printing. Copyright 2000 Cahners

The Mark: The Beast Rules the World (Left Behind #8) Nov 5, 2006
Just like all the books in the Left Behind series, this was excellent reading. Very powerful and thought provoking. I can't wait to read the remaining four novels.
HATE FICTION Aug 1, 2006
Clearly the tens of millions of fouls who read this racist [...] fail to see it for exactly what is; an endorsement of Ethnic cleansing. If the tables were turned and a Jew, or a Muslim wrote a series in which anyone who disagreed with Judaism, or Islam was BRUTALLY MURDERED than the same fundamentalists idiots who take such disgusting pleasure out of this garbage would go simply ape s**t. I do not know what is more pathetic the fact that there are actually fundamentalist Lunatics out there who write this truly unforgivable racist garbage, or the large number of dimwits out who eagerly wait to throw their money away on each installment of HATEFUL FILTH!!!
