The Official Newsletter of the Left Behind® Series from Tyndale House Publishers     Thursday, February 10, 2005
Welcome to today's issue of the LeftBehind.com newsletter!

At the very beginning of the Left Behind series, soon after the Rapture, there was intense speculation about who would rise up as the Antichrist. By the end of the first book, it became abundantly clear that this man was Nicolae Carpathia. Throughout this book and the ensuing series, you read about his rise to power—but there was much about his "rise" you never saw.

Prepare to fill in the gaps and find out all you've wondered. Countdown to the Rapture #1, The Rising, is being released March 1! Below, discover more about this highly anticipated book, read an excerpt, and pre-order your copy today. Don't forget to enter our February contest to win a free, autographed copy!

You'll also want to check out our interview with Neesa Hart, author of the Left Behind political series. She discusses the characters and plot of her third and latest book, Necessary Evils, and talks about the possibility of future projects. Don't miss it.

We hope you enjoy these articles, along with the rest of the features and products offered in this newsletter. Have a great week!
