Unlike previous reviewers, I've no interest in reviewing the Bible or Christian Beliefs. Wrong forum for that. I am assuming that the authors, not being hypocrates, believe Biblical teachings.
While this book isn't for the faint of heart, or the "Pie In The Sky" philosopher, and, like many books of prophecy in the scriptures, is more "meat" than "milk," this series by Jenkins & Le'Haye is inspiring and challenging. Having conducted a long term study of prophecy in the scriptures, it interested me to see scriptural prophecies applied to fictious modern events. I think the authors did a wonderful job in keeping true to the teaching of the scriptures (sorry naysayers...but God is a God of Justice too...it's all in the bible. Check it for yourself) and at the same time create a great fictious story surrounding these coming biblical events of "biblical proportions." Nice thing about this series is that the authors remained completely true to the scripture, and were respectful and careful with their conclusions where empiracal information wasn't forthcoming in the Word, even going so far by saying with the characters, "We're not sure what happens here." While I don't agree on all of their conclusions, it should be noted that the Left Behind series is primarily a work of fiction and should be enjoyed in that context.
If your exposure to biblical prophecy is limited, some of the subject matter involving the Tribulation Period can be shocking. If that's the case, I recommend listening to this series with bible in hand so you can "check for yourself" as you go. Some hold the flawed persective that "God" and "Goodness" are soft. They are not. Some don't like to hear that God, the Ultimate Judge, actually passes judgements. Nor when God punishes or puts his foot down (the Flood? Eden?). If you don't accept God as a Judge (Sodom/Gomorrah?) then how can you truly understand God's Love? I knew a man once who said that in court, the Judge was being to Judgemental!

Audible (and so far everywhere else that I've looked) does not have the complete series in Spanish! I don't know if the other books are "in the works" or not, but I've been watching the availability for about six months now. So far it ends around "Soul Harvest", which I think is about #6.
