Left Behind - Suffersystem - The Mutilated One reason often cited for the books' popularity is the quick pacing and action, and reflects the public's overall concern and fascination with the Apocalypse as portrayed in the Biblical Book of Revelation. Michelle Goldberg has written that, "On one level, the attraction of the Left Behind books isn't that much different from that of, say, Tom Clancy or Stephen King. The plotting is brisk and the characterizations Manichean.
People disappear and things blow up. Other reviewers have called the series "almost laughably tedious" and "fatuous and boring. Laurie Goodstein, writing in for The New York Timesplaced what she called the " "Left Behind" phenomenon " in the calendrical context of the approaching year Goodstein noted a 'proliferation' of similarly apocalyptic texts appearing at that time, by authors such as Jim Bakker and John Hagee.
Goodstein cited the opinion of University of Wisconsin historian Paul Boyer, who described such authors as "cashing in on the public preoccupation with the year ". LaHaye and Jenkins cite the influence of Russell Doughtenan Iowa-based filmmaker who directed the Thief in the Night seriesa series of four low-budget but popular feature-length films in the s and 80s about the Rapture and Second Comingstarting with 's A Thief in the Night.
While writing that the series fulfills the norms of mass-market fiction, as mentioned above, magazine writer Michelle Goldberg characterized the books as an attack on Judaism and liberal secularismand suggested that the near-future " end times " in which the books are set seem to reflect the actual worldview of millions of Americans, including many prominent conservative leaders. The books are written from a Protestant viewpoint. As a result, some believe the books are anti-Catholicnoting that many Catholics were not raptured, concluding that no religion is free of false converts  and that the new pope establishes a false religion.
Catholic Answers describes the series as anti-Catholic. The co-author of the book, Jerry B. Jenkins, as well as LaHaye, stated that their books are not anti-Catholic and that they have many faithful Catholic readers and friends. David Carlson, a Professor of Religious Studies and a member of the Greek Orthodox Church, wrote that the theology underpinning the Left Behind series promotes a "skewed view of the Christian faith that welcomes war and disaster, while dismissing peace efforts in the Middle East and elsewhere—all in the name of Christ".
While many Protestants may agree with the literal interpretation of Revelation and other eschatological passages presented in the Left Behind series and view the Rapture as biblically sound, others do not. Some Protestant Christians who feel biblical evidence pointing to a Rapture before the second coming is lacking still value the evangelistic nature of the series, while others feel the books emphasize vice for entertainment purposes. However, the gospel message presented in the series by Jerry B.
Jenkins is one that puts a strong emphasis on grace, which is popular among most Protestants. Some premillennialistswhile accepting many of the basic beliefs behind the series, describe problems with specific prophetical teachings in the Left Behind books. For instance, in The MarkChang Wong receives both the mark of the beast and the sealing of the Lord and he is later accepted into heaven, despite having the mark, because he was drugged and forced to have it against his own free will.
This has led some readers  to wonder how a Christian can have the mark of the beast and still be saved. Along with some other rapture fiction novels, the Left Behind series demonstrates a specific understanding of the Gospel and the Christian life, one with which many have taken issue theologically.
The books have not sold particularly well outside of the United States. Brian McLaren of the Emergent Church compares the Left Behind series to The Da Vinci Codeand states, "What the Left Behind novels do, the way they twist scripture toward a certain theological and political end, I think [Dan] Brown is Throw Down The Sword - Wishbone Ash - Live Dates scripture, just to other political ends.
Some practicing Christians, evangelical and otherwise, along with non-Christians have shown concern that the social perspectives promoted in the Left Behind series unduly sensationalize the death and destruction of masses of people.
Harvey Coxa professor of divinity at Harvard, says part of the appeal of the books lies in the "lip-licking anticipation of all the blood," and theologian Barbara Rossing, author of The Rapture Exposed: The Message of Hope in the Book of Revelationsaid the books glorify violence.
But in the Left Behind novels the darkness of that human, satanic violence is once again attributed to God. Large chunks of several U.
