A new challenge faces Judd, Vicki, Ryan, and Lionel. They must take their newfound faith to the classrooms of Global Community Middle School and Nicolae Carpathia High. Danger awaits them. Should they obey the authorities, who outlaw carrying Bibles or even talking about God? Should they risk everything and speak the truth to their friends? Who can they trust?
The authors (Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins) and Tyndale have published an “end times” fiction series for children ages 8 to 12 which is patterned after their popular Left Behind series for adults. The theme of each book is similar to the adult series. The leading characters of the series (Judd, Vicki, Lionel, and Ryan—ages 13-16 years old) are four kids who face the same challenges as the adults. Adding to the mystery is the fact that some of the main characters have missing relatives and siblings. Through the series kids will learn how the Bible discusses “end times” issues in language they will understand, and with an emphasis on the hope for people of faith.
