Tribulations by Tim Lahaye
The book is second in the Left Behind Series by LaHaye and Jenkins. The series is based on a literal reading of the Book of Revelation in the New Testament. There is something exciting going on every five minutes. In the first book millions of people disappear, and the series follows the problems faced by those who are left behind. The main characters correctly guess the disappearances to be the Rapture, where Christ takes his faithful to heaven. After the Rapture there is a huge up swelling of interest in Christ, especially among the Jews, and thousands of conversions. But all this happens as Christians are coping with WWIII, a worldwide earthquake, dodging the Antichrist, and bringing people to Christ. I’m the opposite of a fundamentalist, but these are some of the most exciting and uplifting books I’ve ever read.
