Adding Guts to the Glory

While the original Left Behind series crossed over the lines of the Christian marketplace and into the New York Times bestseller list, it always had the feel of a 'traditional' Christian novel. Apocalypse Dawn has all of the faith of the original, but with a Tom Clancy style that hooks you from the first moment and never lets go. More gritty and with more shades of grey than the first series, those who love the best of military and techno fiction will not be dissappointed, while those who seek the message that propelled the orginal will be satisfied.

Well narrated and well produced, this is a must for all fans of Left Behind and a great introduction for those who haven't yet taken the plunge. Hooorah!

Tom Clancy with a bible

From the openning scean to the final words this book is like reading a Tom Clancy book with bible prophacy tossed in.

The way the characters react to the events around them is what you would expect of the military, and the events around the main characters wife will pull at your hart strings.

If you're like me when listening to this book you better set aside a huge block of time because you wont be able to turn it off...and chances are you'll find yourself praying for the characters...it's that real.

This narator is probably the best I've heard in a long time...that's why it feels so real.

You'll be able to almost feel the grit on the faces of the Army Rangers in the Middle East, and at times you'll find yourself giving orders as if you were right there.

Lastly, if you have not read the original Left Behind books I strongly encourage that as you will not understand the uses of some of the terms or characters.
