After seven years, the remaining members of the Tribulation Force are gathered at Petra, trying to find a way to stop Nicolae Carpathia, the Antichrist, and his forces, while awaiting the return of Christ.
In this 12th entry in the bestselling Christian post-apocalyptic series, the promised Second Coming of Jesus Christ finally occurs (the "Glorious Appearing" of the title). During the Tribulation--the seven years since the Rapture swept the faithful to Heaven--those who remained on Earth mobilized behind the Antichrist, Nicholae Carpathia, or behind those opposed to him, the group known as the Tribulation Force. The resolution of the ultimate conflict between the forces of good and evil is now at hand, as Jesus returns to Earth to sit in judgment. Although both a prequel and a sequel to the series are planned, GLORIOUS APPEARING wraps up the main LEFT BEHIND storyline.
