Rapture's Rain - Chris Pennington

Pages: 300
Source:  Review copy from author in exchange for my honest review.
Genre:  Christian Fiction

From Goodreads:
In the aftermath of the world's most catastrophic event, Jason Stover finds himself alone and on the verge of suicide. His family, along with millions of others, has suddenly vanished without a trace and the world as he knows it is starting to die.  After a supernatural event, mysterious strangers begin to appear that may hold the key to his and the rest of mankind's survival.  The only question is will he be able to solve the mystery before time runs out. As the clock ticks down, he and his friends' souls hang in the balance teetering between eternal damnation and everlasting life. Rapture's Rain is a provoking and unique journey that puts faith to the test in the ultimate battle between good and evil.

My Thoughts:
I absolutely loved the "Left Behind" series.  This book ranks right up there with them.  Although the difference is that all of the events are told in one book.  Jason Stover is a non-Christian married to a wife, Kristina who is a Christian.  They also have a daughter, Nikki, who like her mother is a Christian.  Jason has just started going to a Bible study with his wife.  He's made many friends there.  He's working in his yard one minute and wakes up the next day to terrible news.  His wife, daughter, most of the Bible study group, along with millions of others are gone.  

Jason's best friend Mike and Jason's wife's best friend Erin meet up and come to the conclusion that God has come back for his people and they like many others have been left behind.    As the world goes deeper into chaos, and is slowly dying their faith begins to get stronger.  This author has created a fictional account that doesn't completely follow the Bible events.  He has added his own twist on this subject.  To me I believe this will make the book appeal to non-Christians just as much as it appeals to Christians.  

As a Christian, believing that we are living in end times I found this book to come at the appropriate time.  It is one I will recommend to my friends who are Christians and Non-Christians alike.  I look forward to reading more from this author.
