Summary

With Lucifer securely locked away for a thousand years, the Lord Jesus Christ now reigns over a renewed earth. But despite the idyllic surroundings and Christ-friendly environment, a growing number of hedonistic youth join a band of rebels who reject Christ and long for Satan's return.

Groundbreaking Christian authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins bring their best-selling saga to its resounding conclusion.

An eye opener but a bit preachy

This is the last book in the Left Behind series, and I have listened to all of them with great enjoyment. This is the first one that has not gripped me. It sounds a bit too "preachy" as it foretells the events of the end times in the Millenial Kingdom. It has a slightly self-conscious tone, the only one of the series to sound this way - in that the events of the Bible are clearly laid out with not a "jot or tittle" added or taken away, just using the contrivance of the various characters asking questions of whoever is talking, in order to make scriptures easier to understand. Aside from that they've still managed to make it interesting and not too much like a sermon, because in the millennial Kingdom, after Jesus has come and set up his Thousand-Year reign on Earth, there is still dissension in the ranks! (which I had no idea about) in that glorified Believers i.e. those who have died during the tribulation, are not to marry or have children, but the people who survived the great tribulation can marry and have children, and their children can too. All of the old people (from the tribulation and the resurrected martyred saints) will live to be 1000 years old, but of the new people (born during or after the end times) any unbelievers who turn away from the faith will die at age 100 and go to hell. Which I knew nothing about from the Bible! but it is all there in black and white apparently. Each new child has to make the decision for or against Jesus, and there appears to rise in the ranks a group of people who decide not to believe. So most of the story is involved with trying to convert the Unbelievers. Noah coming forward to tell his story has the potential to be a real piece of excitement. Disappointingly, Noah simply recites the story straight from the King James version, no extra insight. Similarly with Joshua and Caleb telling of the entry into the promised land - their audience of children had already studied the bible story, and I can't figure out why they acted so thrilled when all Joshua and Caleb did was recite it word for word from the Bible. If nothing else, at least this got me hearing more of the Bible. But some expansion, explanations and insights would have been good. If the other 12 books managed to be an adventurous retelling in fictional form, why depart from that very successful format now? They might as well have just written down the chapter and verse numbers and told me to go look it up. God seems to be a very vengeful Old Testament God in most of this story, although loving and responsive to his followers. Altogether the book did help my knowledge and understanding of the events of the end times and Bible characters.

Changing Narrators was a mistake

Would you try another book from Tim F. LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins and/or Richard Ferrone?

Yes

How could the performance have been better?

I rarely log in to submit reviews but I couldn't take it on this one. They should have kept the original narrator from all of the other stories, Jack Sondericker. After listening to all of those books with one narrator the voices were off and thus threw the story off. This person couldn't keep my interest as much and it made me want to just

Could you see Kingdom Come being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

The entire series should be at very least a movie - but this should be thought out very carefully because leaving things out as movies do would do this series more harm than justice!

Any additional comments?

Personally I believe this should be re-recorded Jack Sondericker!

the end of the trilogy

i was ok it doesn't really go with what would happen during the1000 year of Christ rian. the bible says Jesus will rule with a iron septior doesn't leave room for rebellion at that time

Where is Jack Sondricker?

I read this Siri here’s ago and absolutely devoured the series on audio. The last book was the only one I did not read and I do think it was the weakest of the offerings. But the greatest disappointment in all was the narrator. It was completely out of sync with all the others. If they weren’t going to use the same narrator, I think it would have been useful for the narrator to at least pronounce the names the same way. Fact of the matter is I didn’t finish this book. It was that annoying to listen to the narrator after becoming so accustomed to the last one.

Enjoyed it!

What did you love best about Kingdom Come?

The author's interpretation of the scriptures.

What other book might you compare Kingdom Come to and why?

In a category all by itself! I have read or listened to the entire series & loved every one!

Have you listened to any of Richard Ferrone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I like his voice & style.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Too many hours to listen in one sitting but was definately near the top.

Kingdom Come Review

I believe this was a book not only for old believers but also for the new believers and the maybe believers. I think Matthew missed a point as this is a good way for the people that don't have a bible or don't want to read a bible to read about the bible by reading this book.

Kingdom Come

This was the most unimaginative and least gripping of the Left Behind series. I thought the authors missed some excellent opportunities to tell an excellent story. The visits from the "Biblical Heroes" were particularly dull as each story was simply a recreation of the Biblical account of the same story. If I could talk to King David, it would be about the parts of his life NOT covered in the Bible.

The end.

As I have said in my reviews of each previous book in the series till this point: If you are a Christian, I would recommend this book to you not only as an excellent work of fiction but as a kind of companion to a Bible study of the book of Revelation. While I am not a minister or a Bible scholar, as a Christian these books are very accurate, and I know my understanding of the book of Revelation has been expanded through this series. If you are not a Christian, I would recommend this book to you as an excellent work of fiction (which it is), and if it (re)awakens questions you haven’t asked in a very long time, if at all, then I would encourage you to seek answers like the characters in this series. Find a Bible and a church that preaches Christ, that if you are willing to hear it you may know the truth. What a conclusion! “Kingdom Come” did not disappoint as the last book in the “Left Behind” series. It pulled out all the stops emotionally and intellectually much in the way of its predecessors. I would describe “Kingdom Come” as a more restful book for the readers than the books which came before it. The “Left Behind” series has certainly been engaging, and, if I bit my nails, nailbiting the whole way through, but there's a quality of relaxation in listening to this finale since no harm will come to the believers. “Kingdom Come” has the feel of a reboot or sequel story since the kids/grandkids of the original Tribulation Force members take center stage. However, this feels more natural than most sequels/reboots with this setup as this is based on a Biblical event (The Millenial Kingdom) which is going to take place. With final regards to the story, I still found this story to be as Biblically accurate as its predecessors. While of course, it cannot be one-hundred percent accurate since it is Biblical fiction based on the book of Revelation, I do feel that the authors have interpreted Revelation as best as they could, seeking the LORD for guidance, and using the other prophetic books of The Bible as a reference. And while they are fallible humans writing based on their interpretations of scripture, the fact that they always list what verses they used as references for things that sound peculiar at first reassures me that accuracy was at the forefront of their minds. Of course I would still like to study things for myself, and I would absolutely encourage you to do the same. But my brother or sister in Christ, if we want to know what exactly The Millenial Kingdom will be like, we’ll just have to wait. That was something that struck me with this book; unlike the books in this series based on The Tribulation, which was written to give believers an idea of what the majority of the events in Revelation will be like since we won’t be there for it, believers like you and I living before The Rapture will be present for the events listed in this book. Hallelujah! Finally, in regards to the narration what I’ve said in previous books still applies. I primarily enjoyed Ferrone’s dramatic narration of “Kingdom Come”, he is still dry at times, and the mispronunciations I mentioned from the previous three books are still present here, but those imperfections fade away while enjoying this awesome story. The only thing I could mention about the audio itself is that there were times in “Kingdom Come” in which the audio editing from the end of one chapter to the beginning of the next was a little abrupt, and would sometimes cut off the last word from the ending chapter. The “Left Behind” series has been such an enjoyable, emotional ride as I’ve listened to them, and I can’t quite believe that I’ve finished the final book. And so, with only the prequels left, I’m excited to see this series to completion.
