The Remnant
I just finished up Left Behind. #10, The Remnant. I held off until #6 or #7 in the series was out before I started reading them, then got completely caught up. Within the context of the series, #10 is fine. It's not the greatest book series ever, not even the greatest book series put out by a Christian or a religious publisher, but . . . it's spent 10 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. What makes it more of a shame is that top notch work by believers has a hard time getting out of the Christian ghetto, while this stuff sells a couple million copies. It makes me wish their was a literary P.O.D. out there, a no compromise act that gets attention solely because of the quality of the work.
