Left Behind


Written By:Jerry B. Jenkins / Tim LaHaye - 2003

  • Armageddon - Jerry B. Jenkins / Tim LaHaye cover


The scattered Tribulation Force is drawn inexorably toward the Middle East, as are all the armies of the world, when history homes in on the battle of the ages. During the last year of the Great Tribulation, safe houses are no longer safe, friends and loved ones must commemorate two lives in one memorial service, and cast of characters dramatically changes.

By the time of the war of the great day of God the Almighty, homes have been uprooted, new alliances forged, and the globe has become a powder keg of danger.

Except those already in Petra, everyone has been forced to relocate as Antichrist ratchets up the ante in the world's most treacherous game. New love is sparked, recent love is formalized, and old love is aggrieved while millions gather for war.

Who will be left standing when the battle leaves the Tribulation Force on the brink of the end of time and the Glorious Appearing?


Armageddon is the eleventh book in the continuing drama of those left behind at the Rapture. The first ten, with sales of more than 35,000,000 copies, comprise the fastest-selling adult fiction series ever. The previous four titles debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list as well as those of USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly.

Desecration, book nine, was the best-selling novel in the world in 2001.
