    I'm still working on Glorious Appearing...about halfway through. I was thinking of doing the kids series too....I heard it was good to read while waiting for the next book to come out but now that they are all here, I think it's time to really delve into them.

    I have also really enjoyed the series so far. I have not been able to start "The Glorious Appearing" yet due to schoolwork but look forward to it!

    I'm kinda wondering if you guys see anything in the world today that coincides with things in the book (the prophecies from Revelation, that is not the fictional parts written by the authors)? I do, but don't want to open a hornet's nest by just jumping in and proclaiming my ideas.

    I didn't realize that the last book was out.....I'll have to go out and get that tonight!

    I see some of the beginnings of the "end times", but then again, people have been saying that for decades! We'll never know for sure, so I guess we just all need to be prepared for it! Scary to think of what the future holds, though.

    But, like the book, I believe in pre-Trib rapture, so I'll be outta here before any of it begins anyway!

    A funny thing happened with the last book, I bought it, brought it home and offered to hubby to read 1st. He declined, and then began asking me plot points as I was reading! He finally stopped when I wouldn't tell him, then I found out he was picking up the book and reading it as I set it down!! :chuckle

    Hubby and I both can see correlations between the books and the world today, but we both realize every generation believes they are living in the end times and "mold" scripture to fit their times. I agree with poster who believes in pre-trib rapture, so we will see you there!

    I've read all but the last two, I think. It's been so long ago that I started reading them...I need to start at the beginning & reread so I remember all of the plot points before I read the last ones. Well, I am going to the library tomorrow...

    I too believe in PreTrib rapture. I tell you one of the neatest things I have done is to read the books then look up in the Bible where they got the material for the books. I know it is fiction and man's interpretation but a lot of stuff sort of correlates. I have been told we are in the end days ever since I was born and every time there is war I think it is going to be really really soon. There is no telling, I just want to be ready!!

    Do you see any correlation between our president and anyone in the book? Just curious.....

    I really would love to debate some of this!

    I have been trying to get my hubby to read them forever and I am going to pull out the first one today and ask him to please just read the first chapter and see if it doesn't catch you...it sure did me!

    i read all of them and just bought "glorious appearing" today. i've enjoyed the series, although some parts near the end of the series moved a little too slowly, imho.

    when i lived in atlanta in the late '70's, i remember seeing a bumper sticker that really cracked me up. it said:

    "in case of rapture, this car will be driverless"
