The Rising
Antichrist Is Born
Available March 1

Marilena Carpathia has only one dream: to be a mother. So when a mysterious clairvoyant promises the fulfillment of this dream, Marilena does not hesitate. Through genetic engineering and the power of the prince of darkness himself, Marilena is about to become a chosen vessel—one who will unknowingly give birth to the greatest evil the world has ever known.

Halfway around the world, God's plans are subtly being carried out too. Young Ray Steele is determined to avoid one day taking over the family business. Instead, Ray sets his heart on becoming a pilot….

Soon Carpathia and Steele's lives will intersect. And good and evil will clash in an explosion that will shake the world.

The eternal battle for souls has come to earth. The world hurtles toward the countdown to the Rapture.

Jerry Jenkins Jerry Jenkins on The Rising

As you've read the Left Behind series, have you wondered what happened before that fateful day of the "disappearances"? What was Nicolae like as a boy? What contributed to his becoming the charismatic world leader who would then be revealed as the Satan-possessed Antichrist?

Or, perhaps you've thought about Rayford and others who knew the way to salvation but were still among those left behind. Now, in three books to be released over the next 15 months, authors Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye will reveal some of those answers. We had a chance to ask Jerry about this "mini-series" approach, which begins next Tuesday with The Rising.

Read what Jerry has to say.
