In this, the grandest fictionalization of one man's version of the end times, Tim LaHaye lays the biblical groundwork for the return of Christ and the summary elimination of the evil forces in the last days before the Millennium. Jerry Jenkins deftly brings characters and stories (that readers have followed for a decade) to the end of their battle, having "run...the race" (Hebrews 12:1) to its conclusion. Indeed, much of biblical prophecy is quoted and discussed in these pages, and many difficult eschatological topics are addressed scripturally. Even non-fans will be intrigued at the revelations of scripture, as finally experienced by the characters of the series.
While the finality of the series is not as unifyingly singular as C.S. Lewis' The Last Battle (from the classic Narnia series), the authors instead concentrate on the interplay between the friends and family of Rayford Steele as they all come to terms with the reality of victorious existence with a risen and now returned Savior. A fitting way to finalize the journey of both dramatis personae and readers alike.
