How weird were the "Lost Behind" books, really?

Basically it was Chick Tracts, The Movie, right?

I'm probably more settled with the idea of a post-tribulation rapture, than even with the idea of bishops and a church. And the entire "Left Behind" series was equally as proprietary. People can't get enough though.

As far as evangelical Christian bookstore fiction goes, it was pretty good. I read them all, but the teen series was stupid.

Really? I read a portion of one and couldn't imagine reading the whole thing, nevermind the series. Which by the way weren't there like 99 books altogether?

I read the first two books then moved on. I remember being in the book store when it first came out, waiting to pay and looking behind me seeing three other customers buying the same book.

I was curious so I checked. There are 12 books in the series. $17 for all 12 in EBook format if interested over on EBookFly.

Do you mean "Left Behind" books?

Does that include the "teens" series mentioned by our Scandinavian friend, hecma925?

Iirc, there was a PC game based on that series and in it they depicted Jesus being pegged onto a thick pole instead of a cross based on some Evangelical or Pentecostal imaginings that the Cross had no crosspiece.

That is JW iconography.

Sometimes when it is really quiet on OC net the thought flashes in my mind that the rapture happened and I have been left behind. Then someone stirs and drops something into the W.A.G. thread and my heart stops racing.
