The Rising: Antichrist Is Born (Before They Were Left Behind, Book 1)

David A. ZimmerPrint

The Rising: Antichrist Is Born (Before They Were Left Behind, Book 1)
by Tim LaHaye, Jerry B. Jenkins

I typically do not read fiction books. This is probably first fiction book I've read in years. Overall, the storyline was interesting. It was a dual line about two different boys growing up. Nicolae from Russia and Rayford from the deep South USA. A contrast in spiritual beliefs and upbringing. I found the story interesting, but when I finished the book, my reaction was, "What did I learn?" Maybe I've read too many technical manuals, self-help books and biographies.

This is a good "set-up" book the the follow-on "Left Behind" series of books, but as a stand-alone, my thought is so-what? I don't like that reaction in me because of the real meaning behind the book - the rapture of God's church and the utter destruction of the earth/world once the Christians are gone. (Yes, I truly believe in the rapture and the Biblical account of the end times).

I guess I should hold my overall reaction to the book until after I've read the Left Behind books also. I am sure they all tie in nicely. I'll let you know if/when I read the Left Behind series.
