I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

Left Behind No. 8: The Mark

The Mark: The Beast Rules the World is the next exciting installment of Jerry B. Jenkin's Left Behind, a fictional account of one of the four theological explanations of the End Times.

That infamous mark of the beast, upon which humans must take in order to buy or sell anything, has arrived. The Tribulation Force knows that they can't take the Mark, as they have already received the Seal/Mark of Christ, both inside of their hearts and on their foreheads, and that the Mark of the Beast will seal their fate and leave them no chance to get to be saved and get to Heaven. There are some who take it, some who refuse, and some who never make a choice. But without taking it, the Force has to find another means of survival...

A great read, and part of one of the most frightening aspects - to me, anyway - of the End Times (other than the martyrs of the saints), Jenkins and LaHaye present it with tact and decorum. Throughout the novel, us readers begin to see behind the curtain into the invisible world around us, and the battle between pure good and pure evil - a battle of which we are the pawns (or the prize, from God's perspective).

Definitely a 4 on a 5 point scale.

Praying you have faith, hope, and love always,
