The 12 riveting novels of the original Left Behind series and the first two prequels, The Rising and The Regime, have all conquered the New York Times best-seller list. Authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins are now among the greatest successes in the history of publishing. They continue their captivating story with this third prequel, which leads directly to the events of Left Behind, the novel that started the phenomenon.

In the moments leading up to the Rapture, nobody knows it is coming as the clock silently ticks down. Choices are made. The stage is set as Nicolae Carpathia ruthlessly eliminates any obstacles in his rise to power. In the twinkling of an eye, loved ones disappear without a good-bye. Heaven rejoices as millions are welcomed into the unspeakable presence of God. The darkest days may lie ahead for those who have been left behind.

    " Not in keeping with Lutheran theology. We will not be adding this to our library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 2/6/2014

    " This is definitely not the best one of the prequels. I guess I don't understand why these books weren't put all together and included in the series. I love the parts about the Rapture and what happens after to the people that are Rapture. I didn't enjoy that it didn't really have anything to do with Nicolae in the last part of the book. I got tired of the others in their after the Rapture events. We already knew what Buck, Chloe and Raymond did. Just wish these would have been put into one book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaydee | 1/17/2014

    " This book is so awesome!! I got so excited while I was reading this book. It just made me look forward to going to Heaven and being with God and what's just waiting for us. f "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 1/10/2014

    " Can't wait to read left behind! These 3 were great as an intro "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pamela Hubbard | 1/6/2014

    " This was definitely the worst of the trilogy, which says a lot because the first two weren't great. Along with the multiple spelling/grammatical errors, the story line was seriously lacking. The actual rapture happens about halfway through the book, and from that point on, real time happenings in the world post-rapture are interspersed with the experiences of those who were raptured (mostly Irene and Raymie). I hate to say it, but these scenes were ridiculously corny. So much time was spent talking about all these heroes of the faith that Irene got to meet in heaven and their testimonies, that I felt like I was reading some sort of non-fiction martyrs book or something. I did enjoy the "real world" story lines, but the heaven vignettes just turned me off the whole book. This was one of those situations where the authors probably had a quota of books they needed to fill with their publisher so they were grasping at straws to come up with a new book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 pianogal | 12/29/2013

    " I have read the entire Left Behind series, and I have to say that at this point, I'm a little "doomsdayed" out. I think the authors just need to put this series to bed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mssmtih224 | 12/23/2013

    " While enjoyed the first two books, I must say that The Rapture is awesome I actually felt like I was listening to people making their piece with God and Jesus. WOW! The imagery this book provide is the best I've seen in a long time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda Shumway | 12/12/2013

    " This is the one to read even if you don't want to read the other 15! You are elevated to places you've only imagined in your childhood during those long sermons. True? No one remembers, but comes close in my world. Loved it. Can't wait to return....many, many years from now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sbugsy | 12/12/2013

    " I wish I would have read this first before the left behind series. It explained what happned prior to the rapture. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 12/4/2013

    " The third book in the 3 book series of Before They Were Left Behind. And now apparently there is going to be one more "final" book in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Correna | 12/1/2013

    " the beginning of the beginning... this is the one that has gotten me interested in the Left Behind books - i've seen the movies... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tami Hawley | 9/28/2013

    " I liked this so much. Probably one of my favorites of the whole series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 8/30/2013

    " I loved the Left Behind Series and thought this book was very good. This is the 15th book in the series. It was interesting to read what actually happened the day people were "Left Behind" (the first book). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 6/8/2013

    " This entire series was great! It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time and made me excited for the next book to come out. It wasn't a "preachy" book but at the same time did witness. My review will be the same for all the books in the series. Well worth reading!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elise | 10/26/2012

    " I did not enjoy this one as much as the others in the series. I felt it bounced around too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/5/2012

    " Awesome book! They are a joy to read, though I'm looking forward to getting it over with and finishing the series already! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen Doherty | 4/19/2012

    " Thought it could of been better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 4/19/2012

    " As far as the Left Behind Series - uh, it was okay; cleared up when Abdullah became a believer and when Amanda met Irene. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cherish Caputo | 4/11/2012

    " This book was a waste of time or should have been number 1. It basically is a more detailed version of Left Behind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 12/13/2011

    " Found the complete series to be very interesting. I anxiously awaited the next book to be published. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melinda | 11/13/2011

    " I loved this one! To be 'flying' towards heaven, right after your name is shouted! What's not to love! This book is probably best prequel of all of them.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Squishysandee | 11/8/2011

    " Very interesting books - makes you really think about the second coming "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valerie | 10/24/2011

    " Another book full of things that could be left over, mushed into the first book of the prequal. Focused too much on heaven and what the authors thought it would be like. I think it was just a bunch of verbiage to make a new book to make money. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 10/2/2011

    " Very good. I don't necessarily agree with the authors views of the Tribulation, but it is a good story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janie Grunwald | 9/7/2011

    " I've been listening to this whole series and this is the first book not performed by Richard Ferrone. Just not the same.... "

    " Another one in the Left Behind series.
    Hmmmmm. Fininshed it on Pearl Harbor Day. Take 2007, subtract the 7(th), then add the number of the month of December (12), and you've got 2012! Ooooooh!!!! The Mayans were right!!!! "

    Tha accounts of the experiences of those rapured had a strong inpact on me and truly moved me.

    " This is another series with the Left Behind series although it is only 3 books in this series. It focuses on the beginnings of Nicholae and his early years before he comes into the Left Behind (12 book series) I guess a pre-quel to the Left Behind although it was written afterwards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie | 7/27/2009
