I should have given more info huh? Smile
They are a series of books based on the world ending. They are fiction(not science fiction. The Authors are Tim Lahaye and Jerry Jenkins.
I do not read a lot, I kid you not I read the first 500 page book in 1 day. The second book took me the same time and I am almost done with it.
They are written by Christian authors. They make you think a LOT! They are amazing!!

Here is the description
"Cars, suddenly unmanned, careen out of control. Terrified people watch their loved ones vanish before their eyes. Some say it's an alien invasion, but Rayford Steele knows that his wife's warning has come true---Christ has raptured his church and Rayford has been left behind in a world without God's people! But the darkest days are yet to come. . . . 468 pages, hardcover from Tyndale."

Even if you do not believe in God, I urge you to read. They are amazing..shocking and wonderful!! They do not try and convert you. They are fiction based on a lot of religions.

The Series began in 1995 and the final book was written in 2007.

I know there was a movie made based on a book/the books with Kirk Cameron in it. I never saw it though. My aunt and grandmother enjoyed the books. I've never read any of them though, mostly because I have a difficult time reading about the end of the world.

I have heard good things about them, and know for a while it was a very popular series.

I have heard the movie is not as good as the books. I would watch it, but would probably like the book better. Seems to always work out that way Smile

I have read them all and LOVE LOVE them. Did you read the lastest one that came out.. oh can't think of the name right now. I have it upstairs I will have to look at it tomorrow.

the movie was not was good, that is for sure.

I think they are very talented writers and loved all the books. I even read the kids series last year, all 40+ of them. Luckily most were around 200 pages and a fast fast read, but fun to see what he wrote for young teens too.

so glad you came to post this, hope you stick around
