The Vanishings

Wednesday, December 26, 2012
Judd was afraid, but he wasn’t puzzled. As the pilot came over the intercom, pleading for people to remain calm, the full realization of what had happened hit Judd. He didn’t know how many other people on the plane had any idea, but he sure did. Christ had come as he promised and raptured his church. Judd lowered his face into his hands and shuddered. It was the worst nightmare imaginable, and he was wide awake. He, and most of the passengers on that plane had been left behind.

Book: The Vanishings (Left Behind: The Kids #1) by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye, Tyndale House Publishers, 1998

Genre: Futuristic/Adventure
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 13-19
Subject: End Times
Summary: It’s their worst nightmare come true. God has come back for His church and they have been left behind. Judd, Vicki, Lionel, and Ryan are now all alone, except for each other. Their future is uncertain, and their lives seem pointless. As they are told the truth they have two choices: to believe or to not believe.
Notes: This book discusses life after Rapture for those who are left behind. Very God-focused, The Vanishings will help you stop and consider your faith in a new perspective. You do not want to be left behind when Christ comes for His children. This is the first in the Left Behind: The Kids Series.
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: Sofia Marie

Mathew 24: 40-41 – “Two men will be working in a field. One will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain. One will be taken and the other will be left.”
