The Left Behind Collection, Volume 1 Review


  • A series that lost control of itself

    It wasn't long after becoming a Christian that I read the Left Behind series, when there had been three or four books released at the time. I remained a faithful reader (no pun intended) up until the end. And though I can appreciate the sincerity that LaHaye and Jenkins made in this effort... ...well, just no other way to say it. This series has NOT aged well. Left Behind took an enormous concept to tackle, speculated on how it would unfold through the lens of then-current politics and technology, and did so with moments of real drama, horror and even a few instances of legitimate humor. But shortly after Carpathia had resurrected it was glaringly obvious: the authors were stretching the story way past the point of when it should have been wrapped up. Then came the young adult novels and the "side series" and the prequel trilogy and it became clear: Left Behind had turned into a FRANCHISE, and the publishers were going to milk it for as much as they could. So it is that what SHOULD have been a story completely enclosed in perhaps seven volume - one per each year of the Tribulation - became a monstrous thirty-some books trudge through tedium and repetition. It became so bad that by the time the final book of the main series had arrived the Bible was being cut and pasted wholesale into the text. No sense of drama or plot, just mushing scripture into the eyes of readers who had seen it before and were only holding on out of some sense of completion. Left Behind the original novel reached many with a message about Christ. By the end of the series it was preaching to the choir, not to anyone new... and the choir was almost asleep with boredom. Not condemning the series or the intent of the authors. As noted earlier, theirs was a sincere motivation. But be aware: Left Behind can and probably will become a struggle to wade through if you're eager to see the end of the world.

    The series of these books is beyond outstanding reading. However, you will be disappointed in the movie. Don't watch it and save yourself the disappointment.
