"Nicolae High" by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye

About this book:

  “A new challenge faces Judd, Vicki, Ryan, and Lionel. They must take their newfound faith to the classrooms of Global Community Middle School and Nicolae Carpathia High.
  Danger awaits them. Should they obey the authorities, who outlaw carrying Bibles or even talking about God? Should they risk everything and speak the truth to their friends? Who can they trust?”

Series: Book #5 (of forty) in “Left Behind: The Kids” series. (Reviews of books #1, #2, #3 and #4.)

Spiritual Content- The Rapture has happened (all four main characters were left behind); All about the Rapture, the Antichrist, & Tribulation; Church going & sermons; Lots of witnessing & discussing; Many talks and discussions about God, knowing Him, the Bible, & what happened; ‘H’s are not capital when referring to God; Many mentions of churches, sermons, & pastors; Many mentions of hell; Mentions of Bibles & Scriptures; Mentions of religious people;
             *Note: Mentions of no religion on school grounds; A couple mentions of aliens; A mention of God helping those who help themselves.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘shut up’, two forms of ‘dumb’, and two ‘stupid’s; Judd swear once (not written); Lionel & Ryan bicker; Mentions of murder; Mentions of wars, famines, & deaths; Mentions of parties, alcohol/beer, drinking, & cigarettes.

My personal Rating-
{These ratings are for content, since everyone has a different opinion on the Rapture and how it will happen.}
The dialogue has gotten better and the plot is picking up, so I’d say this is the best one thus far. I love the parts of Judd and Vicki (the first ship, y’all. ;) ) being rebels for a good cause at their new school.

See y’all on Monday 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.
