    This book anticipated, and may have helped create, the end-of-millennium wave of apocalyptic imagination that the Left Behind series commercialized so spectacularly. Best read as a stand-alone (I read, but did not enjoy and barely remember, the sequels coauthored with Robert Wise). My head is fuzzy on the details, but as I recall the plot was based on a fairly literal take on Revelations/Apocalypse, and on biblical prophecy in general. I kept the book on my shelf for years because of the Appendix This book anticipated, and may have helped create, the end-of-millennium wave of apocalyptic imagination that the Left Behind series commercialized so spectacularly. Best read as a stand-alone (I read, but did not enjoy and barely remember, the sequels coauthored with Robert Wise). My head is fuzzy on the details, but as I recall the plot was based on a fairly literal take on Revelations/Apocalypse, and on biblical prophecy in general. I kept the book on my shelf for years because of the Appendix, which included a mind-bending conspiracy-theory-esque reading of the prophetic timeline that seemed, perplexingly, less and less brilliant the older I grew. On the whole, this book is probably more valuable for its glimpse into the American Evangelical/Fundamentalist mind and the state of popular hermeneutics at the end of the twentieth century than for its story.

    A Quickie Review This was a weird one.  I'm not sure I agree with how Mr. Meier presents the "end times," but the strangeness of it all was simply gripping.  Readers beware, though: There's plenty of violence and scary content to go around, as is typical with apocalyptic novels.  Score: 3.5/5

    I thought this book was very interesting, especially the appendix - yeah, you'll have to read it for yourself and see why!! :-) I thought this was much better than the Left Behind series.

    I read this when I was just a young teen and I really credit it for opening my eyes more and making the Rapture and the end times much more real to me. I read it knowing that not everything in it is 100% accurate obviously but reading it made me want to dig deeper into my faith and research things more on my own. I've read it several times over the years since then as well but somehow missed that it was part of a trilogy! I'll definitely be reading the other two soon.

    I read this years ago while waiting for the next Left Behind book to be released. I enjoyed the interesting take on Revelations and remember enjoying the book. It was also refreshing to get a shorter series of end times novels while the Left Behind crew was dragging that series out for every penny they could. Concise and interesting. That’s what I remember about this one.

    Also read this for a Readers' Advisory group study of Christian/Religious Fiction; this was for the apocalyptic section. Actually thought I might like these. Again, not particularly well written. This tells the same story as the Left Behind series, but in one volume. In this book the Antichrist is the American president and an American family of non-practicing Jews have a guardian angel who helps them out and narrates some of the story.

    Much deeper than Left Behind Series. I really liked this and the 4th Millenium.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the story of this book. It's like the Left Behind Series, only it came first and, in my opinion, is much better.

    I really like this book. I've read the "Left Behind" series, but there is just something about this "short in comparison" book that I appreciated more.

    I read this book before the "Left Behind" series came about, and liked it more than that entire series.

    I thought this one was really well done and then tried to get into the "Left Behind" series but couldn't do it, Meier's story was enough.

    I liked this novel. Scary, yet gives you a picture of the chaos that will ensue at the end of time.

    Similar to the Left Behind series, these books take a more dramatic tone with a look at the End Times. I read books like this less for "accurate" information and more for entertainment.

    I have read 2 of these and they are really good. Very thought provoking and gets you thinking of relevant issues today.

    This book is about the end times and sums up in one book what the whole Left Behind series is about. I really enjoyed reading this.
