"Facing the Future" by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye

About this book:

  “Since the Rapture, Bruce Barnes has been teaching Judd, Vicki, Lionel, and Ryan about the coming events during the Tribulation. They are sure Christ will return for them, but one question remains: Who is the Antichrist?
  Bruce thinks he knows. The kids aren’t so sure. Until a man who has met the Antichrist shares his nightmarish story.”

My personal Rating-
{These ratings are for content, since everyone has a different opinion on the Rapture and how it will happen.}
Even though there is a lot of Spiritual Content, the blood & such goes up a few notches from the previous books. The third book said Vicki was a year younger than Judd, but the beginning of this out said she’s 14. I’m confused, but thinking that’s maybe a typo…?

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
