“Tell me, Captain Steele. Do you still believe that a man who has been known to raise the dead could actually be the Antichrist?”
With those chilling words, Global Community leader Nicolae Carpathia prepares to unleash a new depth of evil on the world. As thousands of believers gather for a conference in the Holy Land, is Carpathia’s pledge of protection evidence of his much-touted tolerance—or a lie? Pilot Rayford Steele must maintain a charade of loyalty while desperately seeking the truth about his late wife. Was Amanda truly a traitor to the Tribulation Force or the victim of a smear campaign? Meanwhile Buck Williams, now an international fugitive, risks his life to carry out the Trib Force’s top-secret missions in a world rocked by demonic catastrophes.
Apollyon is #5 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.
As the world's thousands of believers gather in Jerusalem for a stadium rally, the Tribulation Force struggles with their own personal crises. Newspaper reporter Buck Williams and his wife, Chloe, question whether or not they should have a child when the future of the world is so uncertain. Meanwhile, Rayford Steele discovers the shocking truth about his wife, Amanda. Nicolae Carpathia continues his rise to power, forcing believers underground. But Nicolae isn't prepared for a plague of scorpion-like locusts tormenting his followers—with a pain so horrible that men try to kill themselves but aren't allowed to die. A repackage of the fifth book in the New York Times best-selling Left Behind series.
The Left Behind books only get better and better. This is a series I *almost* said "every Christian" should read. Honestly everyone should read it, whether they're a Christian or not. The theme is powerful and the storyline is gripping. Apollyon begins, of course, where the last book left off. Ray is still trying to find out the truth about his 2nd wife, Amanda. What he finds out is not what it seems and will end up taking twists and turns to surprise you. As for the "apollyons"--they are sooo creepy! This is where the series gets very frightening and makes you hope with all your heart to avoid the tribulation when it really does come! Read this book, but read the others first. This is one series that needs to be read from book 1 to book last!
I love how they created some of the plagues that are talked about in Revelation. What a way to picture it making it even more real about what is to come during the Tribulation. Well done.
