Assassins: An Experience in Sound and Drama: Assignment: Jerusalem, Target: Antichrist Reviews

    Due to my personal belief in the Bible, I have found this entire series to be extremely entertaining and sometimes a little scary. I strongly recommend reading the series in chronological order, or there will be a lot of details that won't make sense. I realize atheists, agnostics, other religions, and even some Christian sects will scoff at the whole concept of the series, and that is their prerogative. I still think they might find the books entertaining, regardless of their theistic leaning. I definitely recommend reading these books.

    Apparently I am not quite in line with many of the other reviewers, but in my opinion this was not as good as the other books in the series. While I found the other books to be mostly fast-paced and suspenseful, "Assassins" seemed to drag in several places. It seemed like the authors were just trying too hard to make some things come to life. For example, to pull off some of the events that occur in the story, the characters need to use some extremely sophisticated technology that hasn't been invented yet. Whenever that happens (and it happens fairly often), the authors go into a lonnnnng tangent to explain the "whats," "hows," and "whys" for whatever technology they are using. It's almost as if they are trying to say, "See? We're not making this up. It COULD work!" Also, some of the characters go into some kind of "funk" and it is never truly explained what is happening with them. When you follow a set of characters through six books and something is glaringly wrong, you want to know why. Anyway, I still liked it okay, and I'm glad I read it so I can move on to the next book.

    Assassins, the sixth book in the Left Behind Series, presents an interesting moral dilemma. The Tribulation Saints know from their study of Scripture that someone will assassinate the Antichrist. Which is convenient since several characters become so enraged at Carpathia that they’re willing to be the ones to do it. However, Rayford Steele is now a believer. His growing anger at and hatred of Carpathia represent sin in his life that needs to be dealt with. Since Rayford isn’t willing to repent, he subjects his loved ones to periodic outbursts of anger. He attempts to justify his murderous rage by claiming he is only acting out what Scripture says must be done. He will not resolve his inner conflict until book seven. The plot of this book grows a bit complicated as old and new characters fight to survive, work to foil the Antichrist’s plot, and struggle to protect their loved ones. Among the goings on, I noticed an interesting aspect of the story concerning the visibility of spiritual forces. More judgments pour out on earth during this section--a plague of death by fire, smoke, sulfur, and deadly snake strikes carried out by 200 million demonic horsemen. However, only the believers can see the horsemen. All who have closed their hearts to God see only nature’s forces.This reminded me of a story from II Kings about the Old Testament prophet Elisha. The King of Syria discovered that Elisha had revealed his secret war plans. So he sent his great army against one man, Elisha. Elisha’s servant saw the army and cried out, “Alas, master, what shall we do?”Elisha said, “Don’t be afraid. Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then he prayed for God to open his servant’s eyes. Immediately, the servant was able to see the spiritual realm—which usually passes unseen in our word—and the horses and chariots of fire God had sent to protect His prophet.Based on such stories, the authors imagined a great gift for the Tribulation saints: the ability to discern what’s really going on in the world around them—no matter how many others remain blind. Whenever I see God’s Name maligned and yearn for a little vindication, I remember their special ability. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have that gift today?I reviewed this book for the Tyndale Summer Reading Program.

    Somehow this book wasn't nearly as bad as the others. It's still rife with problems, though; the kid referenced in my last review is now 14 months old, even though by the end of the book it's 3 years, six months into the Apocalypse. Now, this might not seem like a big deal BUT: the parents don't meet until after the Rapture, and they didn't marry (and certainly weren't having premarital sex) until at least a year and half after said Rapture, probably slightly longer. Okay. we have two years. Add nine months assuming she's pregnant on the wedding night. Two years and nine months. Subtract three years and six months from two years and nine months and we get... 9 months! BUT as we figured out in the last review Chloe was pregant for 13 months so the baby can only be 5 months old, certainly not old enough to be walking around and saying "granddaddy" and that kind of stuff. LEARN MATH! JUST BASIC MATH! MY GODS DOES YOUR GOD PROHIBIT BASIC MATHS? AND IF SO HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN ^&^@*#%@& ISSAC T^@*%^@(^@^&@ NEWTON!?!?!?!

    The action in these novels continue to accelerate. Biblical prophecies come to pas. People die. People are saved. There's a cliffhanger that makes me very glad I already have the next book. You can feel this one is a game changer. Some of the writing is still pretty slow. (There's a painful scene where a character explains a joke. Writers, trust your readers. They're cleverer than you think)Test books like these against the Bible, always They're fiction, the Bible is the truth. It's good to think on these subjects because no-one knows how soon the end of the world might be. Finally, this book is a reminder we can't hide our sin behind God & His word. People have done this through history (Crusades, persecution) God will have His way, not you. The ends don't justify the means. Vegence is His!A powerful series.

    This book was too slow in parts. I think the next one might have more action(I hope).

    Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins in their book “Assassins” Book Six in the Left Behind series published by Tyndale House Publishers gives us the most thrilling tale yet: Assignment: Jerusalem, Target: Antichrist.In the Bible book of Revelation it is clearly prophesied that the antichrist will suffer a head wound and die. Captain Rayford Steele wants to be the one who kills Nicolae and fulfills this prophecy. However, he is not the only one who wants Nicolae dead. In the meantime, Nicolae is working to restore order from all the damage that was done from "The Rapture"; he is rebuilding roads and airports and a cellular/solar satellite phone system--all designed to help him become supreme ruler of the world.The members of the Tribulation Force are fugitives hiding at the safe house where they fear they may have been compromised while at the same time the world is facing more judgement that wipes out a third of the remaining population.Dr. LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins provide a fictional background for the real events that the final book of The Bible, Revelation, speak about: the end times. The Biblical accuracy in“Assassins” is flawless and the story is a page turning thriller. There are wonderful themes: salvation, faith in what you cannot see and who is in charge despite appearances to the contrary. I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down. Mr. Jenkins is an excellent writer and knows how to twist your nerve endings as he tightens the suspense. I am looking forward to book seven in this series.If you would like to listen to interviews with other authors and professionals please go to www.kingdomhighlights.org where they are available On Demand.To listen to 24 hours non-stop, commercial free Christian music please visit our internet radio station www.kingdomairwaves.orgDisclosure of Material Connection: I own this book.

    Of all of the "Left Behind" books, this has been the one that disappointed me the most - and also the one which had me grasping for the next book the most, thus earning a 3/5 rather than a 2/5 which I had been planning on giving it up until the last 50 pages or so.Where it failed: Some of the newer characters were so flat that they were hard to tell apart. I started losing memory for who was what and it seemed as though the same person answered to many different names and genders even. By the end of the book, though, each person's role was a bit more clear to me and thus, their characters (hopefully) will become more developed by the end.Also, I thought that Chloe was acting out of character a lot. All the rest of the main characters thus far were very vivid, though and that's what kept me reading (besides the whole mystery attached with this book).And that's where it "got" me, making its rating go up to 3 stars rather than 2. The whole book was a massive build up, padded tightly with so much flat filler and such that it was almost hard to get through, yet by the end of the book? You STILL don't know who did it! Wow. I think that was an amazing risk - and one that worked in this case. Mediocre at best as a work of "literary acclaim", but near-perfect as a device to keep the reader reaching for the next book in the series.I am anxious to start and finish the next one for sure. This book also beautifully depicted the author's ideas of one way that the prophecies in Revelations would come to fruition. This series is a very entertaining read and it's nice to have "light reading" that also remembers to me my Christianity.

    Book 6 of the Left Behind series is perhaps the best in the series thus far. In "Assassins" we find the various members of the Tribulation Force under attack & fighting for their lives in various parts of the world. We also witness the arrival of the 6th Trumpet Judgement of 200 million demonic horsemen who wipe out a third of the world's population in addition to Rayford Steele's intended quest to assassinate Carpathia. The story moves extremely quickly & keeps the events of the prior stories moving along at a rapid pace. Granted there is a 3 month gap in the timeline toward the end of the story, but it serves as a necessity rather than bore us with the details of the deaths of more than 1 billion people. LaHaye & Jenkins do an excellent job with the paranoia factor of the people who still don't believe & that of the Antichrist (Carpathia) himself who is still convinced that these events can be explained away. A very daring & interesting entry in this series that really hasn't missed a beat & is now at it's midpoint.

    I am beginning to be disturbed by LaHaye's Christian fantasy world. Most of the characters spend the whole book being angry and threatening violence again the leader of the Global Community, who is guilty of lying and manipulating people. In other words, he's exactly like any other politician. Most of the book he doesn't even appear, just delegates the work of government. When he does appear, LaHaye glosses over huge sections with "a lot of people gave speeches"... "and then an earthquake happened," while devoting entirely too many words to how much the Christians want to kill the anti-Christ. It's not even good writing, and it probably encourages Left Behind fans to think their bad behavior is excused because they know they are the good guys. The first book was good, but this is the worst one I've read so far.

    Ah Book #6! I didn't think I'd make it this far, but given the way this book ended I will be sure to read number 7. I have found myself skimming over more pages now. There are a lot of 'sermons' and also scripture that I tend to skim over. It is just too much for the story. Either way, I liked the book.

    The full name of Tim LaHaye's sixth venture into forcing Jerry B. Jenkins to ghost-write his cash cow for him? "Assassins: Assignment: Jerusalem, Target: Antichrist". Man. This book could rival Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life in terms of excessive colons.Marked this book as read because I'm sure I've read it sometime.

    Okay, this story needs to wrap it up already. It was interesting reading about the "pale horses of death", but I'm starting to feel like this is being dragged out too much. I'm only on book 6 and there are 6 more books in the series!? Just let Jesus come back already, sheesh! But the series hasn't totally lost me yet, so I'll keep on going.

    Assassin's (Left Behind #6) / by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins -- Wheaton, IL -- Tyndale House Publishers, c1999. (416 pages) RANGE 9 -- ADULT BOOKS FOR YOUNG ADULTSSUMMARY: The Tribulation Force hurdles toward the four murders foretold in scriptures. The head of Enigma Babylon One World Faith is in jeopardy, as are the two witnesses at the Wailing Wall as "the due time" approaches. Antichrist himself is prophesied to suffer a lethal head wound. As a supernatural horde of 200 million demonic horseman slay a third of the remaining population, the Tribulation Force prepares for a future as fugitives. Yet another Force member dies, and others join as crisis draw them around the globe. Radford and the newest member of the Trib Force are attacked by Global Community security guards in America...David maintains precarious surveillance at the GC palace in New Babylon...Mac and his new copilot are attacked on the Condor 216 in Africa...Hattie is imprisoned in Belgium...Radford walks into a trap in France, narrowly escapes a shooting and GC fighter planes in Al Basrah, and plots his own involvement in the assassination of the Antichrist. Meanwhile several vie for that same "privilege". World history and prophecy collide in Jerusalem at the middle of the Tribulation for the mostalent explosive episode yet of the continuing drama of those left behind. (book jacket)REVIEW: Another excellent installment in the series....however, I'm reading so fast I can't remember what happens when. All I do know is that we seem to always having to say goodbye to a friend but then a new one comes along to replace them. It is very realistic to see these characters in the midst of a noble and holy cause back slide like all humans and become selfish, bored, and a little whiny at times. Even though the book is called ASSASSINS you have to wait almost to the very, very end to find out who kills who.

    I must say I am quite disappointed with this book. I was very seriously considering a brief break from the series and might still follow through. The ending is my only persuasion to continue the series without a break. I simply must know what will happen next.Rayford Steele is getting on my last nerve. I seriously wanted him to pass. His attitude is unbearable. He's having weird mood swings and making everyone miserable. I hate to rant but I'm also quite annoyed with Leah getting offended. Good grief you can't say anything to her without being seen as sexist.I don't want to include spoilers so I'll describe my favorite part in vague detail. There was a happening that really touched me. It personified the message that sometimes you need to turn the other cheek. Let others mock you, you have God on your side and that makes you the victor in the battle of good and evil. Although this was probably my least favorite of the Left Behind books, I have not given up yet. I will muddle through until the awaited sixteenth and final book. As always, I recommend these books to anyone and think they are a great learning opportunity.

    Assassins takes a different approach, with a slow build-up to the inevitable assassination of the Anti-Christ. Nothing new in that, since the last few entries have held back on the titular catastrophe until the final third, however the twist this time is that the reader has no clue as to who the assassin will be - and End of Days whodunnit?!. Plenty of red herrings abound as the authors attempt (successfully) not to reveal the endgame. Where Assassins fails to deliver is with the set-pieces, usually well crafted and exciting, they feel flat due to the changes in the central characters and the two-dimensional peripheral cast. The endgame is squeezed in at the end with too much redundant narrative to get there. It's a necessary chapter, however Assassins just feels too padded out.

    Starting this review is well, easy to say the least. I started reading the first book in this wonderful series just as soon as I heard about them. Being from a christian home life growing up and as well as my husband and family this was a no brainier. I am going to do one review including the whole series. From the first page of the first book to the last page in the last book, I was not able to put these books down. I grew hunger so to speak for each page. I have always had a great belief in the Bible and in my Faith. This series, although some would call fictional, I believe are very close to what will:To read more of my review: https://breathoflifebookreviews.blogs...

    This series has me utterly captivated, despite knowing how the book of revelations ends (As do all the characters in the book who follow Christ. I'll spare you the plot , but suffice it to stay "Left Behind" begins with the disappearance of millions of people around the globe as The Bible's book of revelations begins it's literal assent towards the second coming of Jesus. It's an amazing series if you enjoy the thought of what if A: Revelations is completely literal and B: you were alive to live through Armageddon. Assassins continues the massive amount of action, excitment, and of course, the way to Christ. The book is called assassins for a very good, and very entertaining reason...

    This series just keeps getting better and better with each book! I cannot WAIT to get my hands on the next one. My questions lie mostly what will happy with Chloe and baby Kenny with Buck getting antsy and going back to the journalist lifestyle while Rayford seems to be out for revenge. And what's the story with Hattie? She seems so brainless to me, but there has to be more than what meets the eye there. I guess we'll see!

    I love this series. It is enthralling and well written. On the one hand it is written rather simplistically but on the other hand the subject matter (the Book of Revelation!) is dense and very difficult to grasp or understand, so I appreciate being taught as I go.

    It started out fast, but then it slowed down quite a bit in the middle. The ending of the book was hard to tell at first as the publishing company added the same chapter twice toward the end. It was confusing at first.
