The Remnant (10 Left Behind)(Paperback)Tim Lahaye & Jerry B Jenkins
Nicolae Carpathia has his enemies right where he wants them: massed at Petra, a million strong. The Trib Force’s aliases and even their safe houses have been compromised, forcing Rayford, Buck, and all the members to flee for their lives while trying to maintain their overt opposition to the Antichrist. All pretense is gone, even on the part of the Antichrist, as the planet hurtles toward the ultimate showdown between good and evil. A repackage of the tenth book in the New York Times best-selling Left Behind series.

Rayford Steele had endured enough brushes with death to
know that the cliché was more than true: Not only did your
life flash before your mind’s eye, but your senses were also
on high alert. As he knelt awkwardly on the unforgiving red
rock of the city of Petra in ancient Edom, he was aware of
everything, remembered everything, thought of everything
Despite the screaming Global Community fighter-
bombers—larger than any he had ever seen or even read
about—he heard his own concussing heart and wheezing
lungs. New to the robe and sandals of an Egyptian, he tot-
tered on sore knees and toes. Rayford could not bow his
head, could not tear his eyes from the sky and the pair of
warheads that seemed to grow larger as they fell.
Beside him his dear compatriot, Abdullah Smith, prostrated
himself, burying his head in his hands. To Rayford,
Smitty represented everyone he was responsible for—the
entire Tribulation Force around the world. Some were in
Chicago, some in Greece, some with him in Petra. One was
in New Babylon. And as the Jordanian groaned and leaned
into him, Rayford felt Abdullah shuddering.
Rayford was scared too. He wouldn’t have denied it.
Where was the faith that should have come from seeing
God, so many times, deliver him from death? It wasn’t that
he doubted God. But something deep within—his survival
instinct, he assumed—told him he was about to die.
For most people, doubt was long gone by now . . . there
were few skeptics anymore. If someone were not a Christ follower
by now, probably he had chosen to oppose God.
