I was just wondering if you guys have heard anything about these books or even read one of them. Left behind is a Series of Books about the Rapture and God. Theres some kids books and theres some books for just any kind of reader. I just heard about these books today because it was on MSNBC with Stone Phillips. That was a show I was watching that was talking about the books with the Authors of the Left Behind Series.

I haven't read them either, but I heard they were good.

Why tiptoe quietly through life just to arrive safely at death?

I have read about 5 of them.  I read them as entertaining fictional works, not as a modern guide to spirituality.  They were interesting, though not arresting linguistically.  They have never really rivetted me.

Embrace the impossible.

I have read them, and found them to be very good.

I haven't read the books (I've seen them around the bookstores and stuff)  But I do own, and have watched the first two movies based on the books.  I thought the movies were very good.

I don't know how well they depict the books they're based on, but I do know that the movies were pretty good.  Anybody who is interested in the rapture and the end times would probably like the books and the movies........im still waiting for the third one to come out.  (the movie, not the book)
