Apollyon: The Destroyer Is Unleashed, by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, is another suspenseful chronicle of those left behind after the rapture of the saved. As the book opens, Hattie Durham, the former airline attendant and mistress of the antichrist, Nicolae Carpathia, is wracked with confusion about what to do with her illegitimate child, whose birth date is coming due. Rayford Steele, the airline pilot who flies Carpathia's plane, is ambivalent about the mounting evidence that his late wife, Amanda, may have been a false believer. Buck, the ace newspaper reporter, and Chloe, his wife, are debating whether to have a child when the future of the world is so uncertain. And all of the world's thousands of believers are gathering in Jerusalem for a stadium rally, which will lead to a showdown with Nicolae Carpathia. Believers are increasingly relying on the Internet for underground communication, and most of them are becoming more and more tempted by violence as a way of battling the forces of evil overtaking the world. But demon locusts are shortly dispatched as a divine plague to attack those who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads; this buys the believers a little bit of time to solve their respective personal crises, all of which end in ways that will keep you riveted until the last page.
Great Book| Posted July 05, 2012
I am a huge fan of the Left Behind series. The story is interesting and captivating. The characters are so relatable. I could not put the book down. It was so good. I love how the whole series outlines the events of the end times. It makes me look forward to jesus' second coming and want to witness to other people about him.

This book was an eye opener for me... It showed me on a human's frail attempt to understand God's plan how crazy this world is going to get. I have read the intire series and am amazed by all of them... Even the three new one Tim Lahaye wrote. I just love this book a ton!!!
