I know that I may be in the minority - having never read a Tim LaHaye fiction title. When I did read this book, I was pleasantly surprised.
The book picks up where today’s headlines end - a fear of where this world is going, where liberals may be taking America in the midst of the 21st century. I also found the author’s description of heaven on the day after the rapture to be at a future that God may have planned for the church rather gut retching.
I am not a fan of apocryphal literature (other than that found in Scripture), but I did find that this book held my attention. With the exception of the transition between the wait for Christ’s return and the actual event, the book was a nail biter from start to finish. I might question whether the series from which it comes has a future or not - though the possibility certainly does exist.
If one is ready to explore Tim LaHaye’s writing - this might be a good place to start.
