Review:

Amidst the glitzy fanfare of a new world regime, control is unraveling for self-proclaimed god and Global Community potentate Nicolae Carpathia in Desecration, the ninth installment in the Left Behind series. It's 25 days into the Great Tribulation, and the newly resurrected Carpathia evinces an increasing fondness for gruesome killing. He's thrown into turmoil when the first two "bowls of wrath" from the biblical book Revelation are poured out on the world. Water turns into blood, and those who are branded with the mark of loyalty become covered with loathsome sores. When Carpathia commits the ultimate act of desecration against the Judeo-Christian community, chaos ensues. Meanwhile, the Tribulation Force soldiers on, receiving visitations from heavenly messengers that prod the team to greater acts of courage. Jenkins's characters seem almost comic book-like in their actions; the author relies on pages of slangy, slapstick dialogue rather than character development or descriptive settings to flesh out his tales. It's the angst of wondering what disaster will occur next and the fascination with end times that keep loyal fans turning the pages. And there's no shortage of angst here. Chang Wong flirts with suicide. Hattie Durham risks her life in a confrontation with Carpathia. Tsion Ben-Judah inadvertently gives away a secret location. Chloe Williams uncovers a remnant of believers. There are touches of the standard Left Behind humor, and even some romance in the last days. As always, readers are left hanging at the edge of disaster, which should keep appetites whetted for the promised next installment. --Cindy Crosby

From the Back Cover:

Antichrist invades, desecrates Jerusalem temple. Global Community choice: loyalty mark or guillotine. Pandemic sweeps city; masses writhe.

As the Tribulation Force prepares to guide Israeli exiles to refuge in Petra, Global Community supreme ruler Nicolae Carpathia―now fully possessed by Satan―desecrates the temple in Jerusalem and installs himself as god. All must accept Carpathia’s loyalty mark or die, while a terrible plague sweeps through the city. At first these events seem unrelated, but the Trib Force knows better. They are carrying out the will of the true God―blatantly defying Carpathia. But one mistake could bring crushing failure. Desecration, the best-selling novel in the world the year it was released, is #9 in the phenomenal New York Times best-selling Left Behind series that rocked the publishing world and made millions think seriously about the future and their places in it.

With special features relating to current events and end-times prophecy.
