Why read it?

1 author picked Left Behind as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This book was one of the first to provide a fictional storyline in the setting of a future time in history known in the Bible as the Tribulation Period and shows how God still works even through the darkest times. A great story that shows how evil can rule the world yet still cannot ultimately overcome truth and goodness.

From Randy's list on biblical prophecy in fiction format.
