Publisher's Summary

The biblical foundation for the best-selling Left Behind series.... In the twinkling of an eye, millions of people across the world vanish, resulting in highway catastrophes, plane crashes, utility breakdowns, and more. Chaos reigns. With the stage set, a dictator emerges who persecutes Christians horribly. But tribulation is about to give way to incredible joy - for the return of the King of Kings is at hand.
In Revelation Unveiled, Dr. Tim LaHaye, co-author with Jerry Jenkins of the best-selling novels Left Behind and Tribulation Force, reveals the scriptural foundation of this series. Revelation Unveiled explains such critical topics as:

The rapture of the church
The Return of Christ
The Great Tribulation
The Final Battle against Satan and His Hosts
The Seven Seals
The Millenial Reign
The Seven Trumpets
The Seven Bowls of Wrath
The Great White Throne
The Destruction of Babylon
The New Heaven and New Earth

Previously titled Revelation Illustrated and Made Plain, Revelation Unveiled will help you better understand this mysterious, final book of the Bible and its implications.

Charts Not Included

Without the PDF charts that Zondervan published for the audiobook version of this title, it is difficult to understand many of the concepts presented by Mr. LaHaye. Neither Audible.com nor Zondervan have been able to provide me with these charts in PDF format which were supposed to accompany the audiobook (and which come with the hard-copy of the book). Mr. LaHaye even negotiated with Zondervan so that Zondervan gives permission to use these charts if you wish to teach a Bible study class on Revelations with them. Again, a useless agreement when the sellers of the audiobook won't provide the files. If the files were available I probably would have given this audiobook 5 stars instead of only 3.

Good Introduction to Eschatology

Books of this type, I assume, are read by those who already accept the premise. But I don't think that only Christians read the Left Behind series and this would be a good book to read if they wanted to learn the concepts behind the story. It is a good primer on End Times prophecy with a minimum of preaching (which it does obliquely - homosexuals, pornographers, and substance abusers get a special mention).

This is not a scholar's book. It does not discuss translation or the use of a concordance. It uses various translations of The Bible when there is a quotation.

What the book does is present its thesis that the End Times will occur in the following way: 1) the conditions which must be met for the Tribulation Period to occur (mostly having to do with the geopolitics of Israel - it is largely believed that this has been met since 1967) mentioned mostly in the Books of Daniel, Ezekiel, and Isaiah, 2) The Rapture, 3) The Rise of the Anti-Christ, 4) the seven-year period of Tribulation, 5) The Book of Revelation with descriptions of the bowls, trumpets, horsemen, etc.

It is a frightening story and very provocative. I am not born-again, but I do find the subject fascinating. I think it is a great invitation to study The Bible and find what it means to you. And, in a selfish way, it is just fun. I mean, for a moment, let's just take its premise on face-value and accept it... it means we are all in for a real mess.

It is read in a straight-forward fashion. I have no complaints about the narration or subject matter. And I do wish it would find a larger following. It should be added that this belief is largely endemic to the United States. It is not mentioned in Catholicism (though John Paul II did mention it), Europe is largely secular at this point, and most Protestant sects do not go in for this either. Therefore, this is only going to be heard by the already converted. To me, that is a pity. It is a fascinating introduction to an esoteric subject.
