Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins have sold more than 60 million copies of their Left Behind series, the fastest-selling adult fiction series of all time. Now these extraordinarily popular writers unveil the hotly anticipated Countdown to Rapture series, the thrilling saga that leads to the events of the Left Behind books. Ray Steele is absolutely sure of just one thing, he does not want to take over the family business. Instead, he longs to become a pilot. On the other side of the world, Marilena Carpathia dreams of motherhood. Through genetic engineering, she is about to get her wish. But what she doesn't know is, the prince of darkness himself has chosen her as his vessel, and she is about to give birth to the greatest evil the world has ever known.

Great Prequel

Having read the rest of the Left Behind series I found this book great. It fills in the backgrounds of some of the main characters.

You've got to be kidding me...

What is it about these books? Bad theology and bad writing. Why are millions reading them? They are not GOSPEL. They are FICTION. And this one...could the hatred of that which is "other" be any stronger? These books promote hatred and harm, not the love of Christ.
