Publisher's Summary

In one cataclysmic moment, millions around the globe disappear. Vehicles, suddenly unmanned, careen out of control. People are terror stricken as loved ones vanish before their eyes. Is this the rapture prophesied by scriptures in the Bible from ancient times? If so, what destiny and tribulations are about to befall those who remain on the Earth and are left behind?

In the midst of global chaos, airline captain Rayford Steele must search for his family, for answers, for truth. As devastating as the strange disappearances have been, the darkest days may yet lie ahead....

Listen to more novels in the Left Behind series.

    "The drama of the end of the world!"
    Would you listen to Left Behind again? Why?

    Yes, it was such an adventurous story with so much drama. It kept me wanting to come back to listen as soon as I had a free moment! When I finished it, I couldn't wait to listen to the next book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Left Behind?

    When suddenly over half the people on a plane disappear without warning without knowing what cruelly happened!


    Which character – as performed by Jack Sondericker – was your favourite?

    Buck, also known as Cameron Williams


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Would it be you whose left behind?!

    "poor sound but good story"

    the sound quality, especially in the first half was terrible. the volume would randomly go very quiet then suddenly very loud a few sentences later. despite this the story was great and kept me hooked

    "Good story, shame about the recording"

    Jack Sondericker would have been better not trying to do accents! Welsh accent is hilarious, English accent is pure Dick van Dyke cocknee sparred.

    "Amazing book"

    Amazing book, tracks what can be interpreted from Revelation. Not sensationalized. Good characters and the story moves on well. I am a Christian and I found myself relieved that I am and more concerned and inspired to tell more people how amazing Jesus is. If you are reading this as a non Christian do not be put off. Listen and see what you think, you have nothing to loose.

    "Great Story but......"
    Would you listen to Left Behind again? Why?

    No, but I have never listened to a book twice - much like I rarely watch a movie twice. It is worth listening to again - yes.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jack Sondericker?

    Jack does a good job of narrating and I would recommend his work expect for the background noise. I cannot determine what it is but it sounds like he is chewing gum at times, or maybe taking notes with a pencil -- the small scratching noise a pencil makes on paper. Not sure but it is so distracting that I plan to switch to another narrator for book 3.

    "Great book, Could have better audio quality"

    Wonderful story but they could have done a heck of a lot better job producing the audio and removing unwanted sounds. The audio is messy enough that I constantly notice the background sounds. I still enjoyed the audio book and thought it was worth it. for the money it should have been much cleaner.

    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is the only issue I have with this book. The voices he does for the people in the book don't seem to match up with their personalities.

    "Decent story, terrible audiobook"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story is a decent one. I LOVE the idea of this story, I do wish it was written better. I am a picky reader and need more depth, more intricacy to my material. If you are used to reading "normal" type fiction books, and you are a Christian, then you'll like this story. I am used to reading huge, deep fantasy type novel series and this just didn't match up as far as really grabbing my attention. Not because of the subject, but because of the execution. As far as the audiobook itself goes, story aside, this is terrible! The guy that is reading it is really horrible at making the different voices, and just overall being believable. I want to get lost in the book, as if I'm watching a movie or reading it on paperback... it is impossible with this guy. Also, the volume was so low that when listening in my vehicle (I drive a LOT) I had the volume turned up all the way as loud as it would go and it was still too low for me to hear some of the time. I have never had this problem with all of the many, many audiobooks I listen to in my vehicle. I was super disappointed, I wanted to love this.

    "Captivating and profound!!"

    I read the book before and found it absolutely wonderful, but now after listening to it I have to say that the narrator, Jack Sondericker, takes it to a whole new level. He kept me enthralled with his excellent style of reading, and moved me in ways that reading alone couldn't do. I highly recommend this audio book. I look forward to listening to the rest of the series!!!!!
