Readers will want every possible soul saved to avoid the seven-year Tribulation, and they will see why characters such as Rayford, Chloe, and Buck fail to believe. Events in Israel will be heating up, and some main characters like Rayford and Buck will be thrust into the thick of the drama. Read more.

The RegimeLeft Behind Celebrates Ten Years
It was 10 years ago that the landmark apocalyptic thriller, Left Behind, hit Christian bookstores. Since then, the Left Behind series and its related books have sold over 62 million copies and have cumulatively spent hundreds of weeks on every major best-seller list in America, including the New York Times list.

But the real impact of the Left Behind series is on souls. Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins receive many letters each month from readers who have had their relationship with Christ strengthened after they read the books. The authors also receive letters from those who were led to Christ because they read the books. The writing duo estimates they've heard from more than 3,000 readers who have made decisions of faith after reading Left Behind.

Read letters they've received, and then write to tell us how the Left Behind series has impacted your life. We'll use some of your responses in an upcoming newsletter, and we'll forward some of them to Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye.

Also, be sure to check out the special 10th Anniversary Limited Edition of Left Behind. You'll find these exclusive features: full-color end-times timeline; behind the scenes with Jerry Jenkins; compelling testimony of a life transformed by the series; and more!

Are We Living in the End Times?Are We Living in the End Times?
"You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains" (Matthew 24:6-9).

Each day we hear about famines, earthquakes, and nations rising against nations. Are we truly living in the end times? Do you wonder what the answer is? Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins talk about this and other Scripture passages, answering many of your questions as they give their reasons for believing the Rapture and Tribulation could appear during the current generation!

Bonus Articles by Jerry Jenkins!

On religious persecution
A co-worker gives us a dirty look when we quote Scripture. Our children's views on God are mocked in school. We don't hear "Merry Christmas" anymore at the mall. For the Western church, persecution is on the horizon.

On sharing our faith with our families
One of the toughest things a Christian can do is tell a family member the truth about heaven … and hell.

On praying for miracles
We don't have problems praying for everyday things: a parking place, a new job, a little extra money. Mundane requests roll off the tongue.

There are spies among us!
Our kids are always watching; their ears are always open. They see us when we're good, bad, or ugly. Sometimes all three at once.
