Take a pound of apocalyptic suspense, add a dash of conspiracy, a little romance, and you've got a recipe for publishing success.
When authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins first imagined Left Behind, their goal was to create "...the first fictional portrayal of events that are true to the literal interpretation of Bible prophecy." Left Behind began as a sleeper, starting slowly and building steadily, selling by word of mouth. Eventually the book became a bestseller and LaHaye and Jenkins discovered that the story would take more than one book to tell, so they continued the tale in Tribulation Force.
Set against the backdrop of the Rapture, in which Jesus has returned as promised to gather his followers and remove them from this world, the characters in Tribulation Force must confront life without their loved ones, struggle with evil unleashed on the world, and ultimately embrace God's truth for themselves.
Pilot Rayford Steele, his daughter Chloe, journalist Buck Williams, and pastor Bruce Barnes band together to study the Bible, pray, and support one another through this time of terror and uncertainty. They realize that Nicolae Carpathia is the prophesied Antichrist, as they watch him consolidate his power. Buck and Rayford find themselves employees of Nicolae, keeping their faith in Jesus secret so that they can continue to work and share their faith unhindered while secretly fighting the Antichrist with the other members of the tribulation force.
The authors have drawn a story of intrigue and adventure set against a cataclysm of global proportions. Readers captivated by Left Behind will certainly want to read Tribulation Force.From the Back Cover:
Carpathia named Supreme Potentate. Potentate plans one-world currency, global disarmament. World leaders establish universal religion.
Amid worldwide chaos and devastation following the sudden disappearance of millions of Christian believers, four form an insurgent cell group? the Tribulation Force. Rayford Steele, Pan-Continental Airlines pilot; Buck Williams, crack journalist for Global Weekly; Bruce Barnes, assistant pastor at New Life Community Church; Chloe Steele, university student. Nicolae Carpathia is establishing a one-world government. But what he calls world peace the Tribulation Force knows will mark the end of the world. Can four ordinary citizens stand against this powerful and charismatic leader before his vision for world domination succeeds?
Tribulation Force is #2 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.
