Desecration: Antichrist Takes the Throne
(Left Behind No. 9)
Amidst the glitzy fanfare of a new world regime, control is unraveling
for self-proclaimed god and Global Community potentate Nicolae Carpathia
in Desecration, the ninth installment in the Left Behind series. It's 25
days into the Great Tribulation, and the newly resurrected Carpathia evinces
an increasing fondness for gruesome killing. He's thrown into turmoil when
the first two "bowls of wrath" from the biblical book Revelation are poured
out on the world. Water turns into blood, and those who are branded with
the mark of loyalty become covered with loathsome sores. When Carpathia
commits the ultimate act of desecration against the Judeo-Christian community,
chaos ensues. Meanwhile, the Tribulation Force soldiers on, receiving visitations
from heavenly messengers that prod the team to greater acts of courage.
Jenkins's characters seem almost comic book-like in their actions; the
author relies on pages of slangy, slapstick dialogue rather than character
development or descriptive settings to flesh out his tales. It's the angst
of wondering what disaster will occur next and the fascination with end
times that keep loyal fans turning the pages. And there's no shortage of
angst here. Chang Wong flirts with suicide. Hattie Durham risks her life
in a confrontation with Carpathia. Tsion Ben-Judah inadvertently gives
away a secret location. Chloe Williams uncovers a remnant of believers.
There are touches of the standard Left Behind humor, and even some romance
in the last days. As always, readers are left hanging at the edge of disaster,
which should keep appetites whetted for the promised next installment.
Nicolae Carpathia, now the total embodiment of evil, desecrates the
temple in Jerusalem by entering and declaring himself god. The explosive
ninth book in the Left Behind series will carry the world to the brink
of Armageddon. With over 40,000,000 products sold in the series, Left Behind
is an international phenomenon.
