I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. Sep 05, CJ Scurria rated it really liked it Shelves: The world has been torn apart by an earthquake its scale previously unprecedented. People everywhere are left grieving and picking up the pieces especially Rayford who is torn between how to trust a loved one's motives just months before.
Buck Williams is desperately searching for Chloe who was left in a building and might be underneath the rubble. What must the Tribulation Force do since this has been their biggest challenge yet and could the enemy somehow be one step ahead? This was a great The world has been torn apart by an earthquake its scale previously unprecedented.
This was a great entry in the book series. While not perfect especially by how it ties itself up in a surprisingly vague finale it still holds strong as one of the best ones. I like how the destruction and having characters pick up literal and figurative pieces seem to give it an interesting theme or allegory.
This one is great and will leave the reader shocked at the opening chapters to find out who has lived in the "wrath of the Lamb" quake and who has perished in its wake. And it contains a very intriguing and clever plot point involving Rayford's plight to find his wife as view spoiler [ he is left wondering if he should hope she is alive as it would mean she is a mole and a secret enemy to the Tribulation Force or be just one of his people but have perished in a plane crash which is where she was supposed to have been.
While not as well-crafted as Left Behind to Nicolae it is a definite runner-up to the first three. I hope people will forgive its ending though aforementioned as it is the weakest part of the book. Why describe such world changing events but sum them up quickly in only a few scant pages?
I don't know but at least it is not as weak as the following book called Apollyon. Oct 13, Jennifer Defoy rated it really liked it Shelves: I've read this book before but I wanted to get back into the series and I couldn't remember the whole story so I re-read it. I have to say that I was very entertained by this book.
I think that this series is so well written that if you don't believe in the Rapture that you would enjoy the story line. The characters in this story are so well developed that you can't help but to form a bond with them. The book jumps around a bit, but it is not distracting and it does not deter from the story at al I've read this book before but I wanted to get back into the series and I couldn't remember the whole story so I re-read it. The book jumps around a bit, but it is not distracting and it does not deter from the story at all.
In fact I think that this is a very well written book. If you have not read any of the Left Behind books I would encourage you to start at the begining. Although there is enough past written into this book that you could pick up most of what happened I would imagine that there are little things that add to the story that you would miss if you picked up in the middle.
Overall I think this is a great book and a great series. I'm going to start the next book as soon as I can! Oct 08, David rated it did not like it. After getting wrapped up in the characters and feeling the need to find out what happens to them was the only reason I continued to read all the books in the series. The authors definately knew how to draw someone in and keep it just entertaining enough for them not to put it down and never think of it again - barely. I read the series for it's fiction appeal, not the biblical meanings, so was a bit disappointed in the writings.
If the authors had cut some of the scripture and backstory each boo After getting wrapped up in the characters and feeling the need to find out what happens to them was the only reason I continued to read all the books in the series. If the authors had cut some of the scripture and backstory each book could have been condensed, or there could have not been 12 books, minus the three prequels that came out also. But, they sure knew how to sell books, which seems to be part of the reason there are so many.
Apr 25, Grampy rated it it was amazing.
Due to my personal belief in the Bible, I have found this entire series to be extremely entertaining and sometimes a little scary. I strongly recommend reading the series in chronological order, or there will be a lot of details that won't make sense.
I realize atheists, agnostics, other religions, and even some Christian sects will scoff at the whole concept of the series, and that is their prerogative. I still think they might find the books entertaining, regardless of their theistic leaning. I definitely recommend reading these books. Jun 25, Alexander rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was the fourth book in the Left Behind series and it was really intense.
The book built off of where the last one left off.

The novel was so intense and filled with so many plot twists that it will keep you reading till the very end. Mar 27, Oceana rated it it was amazing Shelves: My favourite one so far! So much action for the Tribulation Force. Some sad goodbyes too but so compelling! I'm hooked. I definitely want to see how the TF's get to the end! Oct 24, Amy T. This series is stellar. Its turning into one of my favorites. I had to sit in my car to finish sequences sometimes because it was so riveting. You feel like you know the characters and my heart grew so attached to them!!
Having read the previous three books in the sequence, I would have to say this book was not only the best story so far but it was the most well written of the books. I was mesmerized by the many interesting interpretations of Revelation throughout the book especially the part with the Seal. That was so cool!!
Every character was so real and raw and their boldness and zeal was inspiring. My one complaint was several questions that were mysterious throughout the entire book were still left unanswered at the end and it just seemed too abrupt!! I guess I will just have to read the next one!
May 17, Nicole rated it it was ok Shelves: I read what I did of this series because it was one of the few books my then-husband would read, and I wanted to be able to discuss books with him.
I won't be reading more of these books, or re-reading any of the ones I already read, and reading them didn't help give me and my ex-husband anything interesting to talk about anyway since he didn't want to hear the ways in which my opinion on the series varied from his.
This was a crazy-fast read for me, to be honest. It moved at a quick pace. It takes place directly after the massive global quake at the end of the third book. The entire book focuses mostly on the Tribulation Force trying to find love ones in the resulting destruction.
It does move at a fast pace; the authors are doing a better job of mixing "action" and "non-action" moments in the book. It also introduces new minor characters and builds upon other minor characters from the three prior books I This was a crazy-fast read for me, to be honest. It also introduces new minor characters and builds upon other minor characters from the three prior books I do not remember how many of these new characters are still around in the later books.
The dialogue showed definite improvement over the earlier books especially the first book! Despite most of this book taking place over a very short period of time, I thought the authors did an excellent job with it overall in terms of pacing, narrative, and holding my interest.
Maybe "very generous" is a better choice of words, but that is okay. I do not recall it having quite the "extensive infodumps" that the second or third book had in bringing the reader "up to speed" in reference to prior "major events" in each person's life. I know they are "new" Christians and "only two years or so old," but, still!
Both Rayford and Buck struggle with hatred for Nicolae Carpathia, and both express a strong desire to be God's instrument of exacting vengeance against Carpathia by killing murdering the Antichrist.
Both men even go so far as to pray to be the instrument of God's vengeance! I know they are not perfect people; I know they are "new, immature" Christians, but it is still "shocking" to me to read about their "naked," raw, dark emotions directed at the Antichrist. I never noticed it before, the first time I read this book, but I am definitely noticing it now. I know I struggle with frustration and anger directed at people, from time to time, as well as forgiving others who have offended me, so their emotions are not unique or unfamiliar.
It is just somewhat strange to read about people who are so in love with God and yet filled with so much hate for the Antichrist. I trust things will change and they will submit their emotions and repent of their hatred before the end of the series. Another "thing" that stood out to me was how much the "heroes" do NOT testify or witness in the books.
At least, that is what it feels like. Well, maybe other than Tsion ben-Judah who is essentially witnessing online by posting his messages of salvation to a bulletin board for all to read. I mean, Rayford and Buck do witness to a couple of individuals, but they seem to be too busy throughout most of the book to really do any kind of witnessing to anybody, in general. It was touched upon, at one point, in a conversation between Mac and Rayford either before or just after Mac becomes a Christian.
Steele overhears parts of a conversation between Carpathia and Amanda via the Condor 's secret intercom system, which sounded extremely suspicious to me but not to Rayford. This book builds upon that by introducing more evidence that Amanda is a turncoat and traitor, that she is not at all what she claims to be a born-again Christian and opponent of the Antichrist.
He claimed, in a journal, to have discovered that Amanda's maiden name before her first marriage was Fortunato, implying she is somehow related to Leon.
The plot obviously thickens! Was she, or was she not, a spy and traitor? How could Rayford have missed this! Time will tell in one of the subsequent novels, I assume. I guess the ends justify the means more than I realized? I know I have been asked in some classes if I would tell a lie to save the life of an innocent person who would otherwise be killed if I revealed where he or she was hiding. I hope I would do the right thing without sinning; the heroes do, at times, avoid telling the truth without lying.
Other times, it seems that bold-faced lying is used to "save the day. No different than what happens in real life, but it still was an interesting "point" that made me think about it sometimes over the course of the novel. There was something else, but I forgot what it was. I can see why such a thing would be hard to quantify, to match up a "loving and merciful God" with so many deaths.
I cannot explain it, either. I "get it" but it is still hard to reconcile; we like to think of God as being a God of "love and mercy," but He is also described as being a God of righteousness and wrath, unable to abide sin.
So, I cannot explain it or reconcile it, but I did think the authors gave it a nice try. I imagine this "had to happen," on the one hand, considering what most of the narrative of this book focused on view spoiler [finding to find out if Chloe, Hattie, and Amanda are still alive or not. I have to admit, this time around I am almost hoping that Rayford and Hattie do end up together, somehow, before the series is over.
I guess it was, what? The Earth's defenses are more prepared for this second cosmic menace. This second celestial danger is composed of some other composite material that ends up being broken apart by nuclear missiles, and the remnants of this celestial body fall to Earth and poisons most of the rest of the water supply; this second celestial body is called Wormwood. The book ends with Rayford talking Carpathia into attending the massive "evangelism" conference in Israel; he does this by using some form of emotional manipulation that actually works.
It was kind of amusing. I remember thinking that was pretty cool the first time around, and I still thought it was pretty cool a second time around if only because I had forgotten about it hahahah.
The way it was described, its appearance kind-of reminded me of "Ash Wednesday" and the crosses some Christians have placed on their foreheads. It was interesting how the characters talked about "the latest craze" during the s being how these seals appeared to them the "craze" was looking at a picture that had a bunch of shapes and colors on it, and then you would suddenly see images amidst the colors and designs.
There might be dinosaurs, or a rustic scene of a farmhouse, or airplanes, or some outer space "scene" composed of spaceships and astronauts and satellites and moons and a "space base" amidst the designs. You had to look at the picture just right, or you would not be able to see it.
This character was confirmed to have died during the global earthquake at the end of the third book, and Carpathia raised him from the dead in this book. Carpathia was described as mimicking Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead; it will be "interesting" to learn if Carpathia is able to raise any other individuals from the dead in subsequent books.
This was a fast-paced book; I can only assume its tight focus had something to do with that. I enjoyed it quite a bit reading it a second time around; it held my interest throughout the entire story. It was worth it. Jul 07, Renee rated it really liked it. The events in Soul Harvest , book four in the Left Behind Series , are a continuation of the action begun at the end of Nicolae. The world is reeling after a devastating natural disaster.
Buck and Rayford are searching for their wives, making new friends along the way, and leading folks to the Savior as the opportunities arise. Important lives are lost. But eventually those of the Tribulation Force who are left gather for encouragement and to make a new plan. However, one believable constant in every story is how—no matter what dangers they face from the chaos around them—the believing characters show concern for individual lives.
There are several interesting developments in this installment, which I attribute to the imaginations of the authors, Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins.
I enjoyed what they envisioned as far as how technology will be used to spread the message of the Antichrist and keep tabs on all the peoples of earth. This was especially impressive when I re-read because this book was originally written eleven years ago. Actually, maybe I should be nervous at how technology has developed in that short amount of time.
And I loved the method devised for Christians to identify each other. Many Bible scholars believe the judgments which are poured out from Heaven during the Tribulation will not harm the saints. So the authors came up with a special mark that appears on the forehead of every true believer.
Miraculously, only other believers can see the mark. This enables the Tribulation Force to determine whom to trust and to mix in with the global community when necessary. This book also highlights the effect on the culture after the Holy Spirit is taken out of the world.
During the story, one of the great accomplishments of the world leader is reestablishing television signals.
Once TV is returned to the masses, the content worsens to incorporate every sin and perversion imaginable. All moral restraints have been removed.
Soul Harvest (Left Behind Series, Book #4)
Sadly, when that influence is gone, unrighteousness rules. I reviewed this book as part of the Tyndale Summer Reading Program. Feb 07, Naomi Bowen rated it really liked it. Soul Harvest is the fourth book in the Left Behind series and it has to be one of my favourite so far. Picking up where the last book left off,we find two of the main characters desperately searching for loved ones in the aftermath of a devastating world wide earthquake.
You can feel the stakes have been raised.
No one is necessarily safe. You have daring rescues, more people coming to Christ, astonishing plot twists and breathtaking images lifted from the pages of Revelation. A great read.
Onl Soul Harvest is the fourth book in the Left Behind series and it has to be one of my favourite so far. Only knocked a star off for some slow writing and boring parts. God is faithful.
He keeps His promises. While our ways are not his ways and we can never understand Him this side of Heaven, Rayford was assured again that he was on the side of the army that had already won this war.

At the end, it sped up very quickly. It was like the authors were rushing to get to the end. It was mostly about Buck and Rayford trying to find their loved ones. Rayford discovered some disconcerting things about Amanda that he refuses to believe until he finds proof one way or the other.
After a massive earthquake tore apart the land and killed many people, Chloe is left with broken bones and wounds on one side of her body. During his This novel, like the two before it, dragged in some places. During his search to find her, Buck discovers from a doctor Chloe is pregnant.
Hattie changed her appearance and continues to hide from Carpathia. She is also unwilling to accept Jesus and God into her life because of terrible things she's done, one of which is poisoning Bruce Barnes, which led to his death. The book was a build-up to the next one in the series and I'll be starting it this evening. This book was ok, not great but not bad just very in between. You did see more of some of the interesting characters, like Ritz, from the other books which I enjoyed.
The writing and some of the way things happen in this book seem off to me. In the middle of a shoot out, running for there lives they are going to take cell phone call?
The scriptures that it quotes are interesting and thought provoking which I think is the authors goal so that was done well. In this installment of the series a mark appears on the foreheads of believers which only other believers can see.
Again I don't know if this is actually the way God will work out this prophecy I'm a Christian and have no problem with accepting the truth of the book of Revelation. The books attempt to give a literal interpritation of the Book. It's their only real failure as far as I'm concerned is that the writing itself isn't all that great. Again, While I may not agree with the theology in In this installment of the series a mark appears on the foreheads of believers which only other believers can see.
Again, While I may not agree with the theology in this book that is not a problem for me. The writers are sincere and that's great. May 04, Kevin rated it really liked it. I personally liked this book.
I loved the drama and suspense in this one. Is Amanda really a plant by Nicolae? I'd like to think not.
