LaHaye and Jenkins' best-selling apocalyptic fiction novel, Left Behind, is already so ridiculous that it's hard to make a parody of it. Yet the conservative Christian author, Nathan Wilson, bravely sets forth to push it over the top. Tweaked versions of all the original characters work together in an absurd tangle of Evangelical goofiness struggling to make sense of the pathetically gnostic vision of the original story. You won't want to miss all body parts, cats, and youth pastors left behind, Buff Williamson's Ivy League deductions, Haddie the Whore of Babylon, or the climactic struggle with the Tulsa Antichrist in a Christian "book store." If you regret reading Left Behind, read Right Behind to ease that pain with laughter.
A special word from Jerry Jenkins himself!
"If they're right [the parody author/publisher], then millions of evangelicals are silly and goofy and stupid and are being misled by people with ill motives. If we're that offbase and doing a disservice to the church, it's all that much worse because of how popular our stuff is." -Jerry Jenkins, 12-09-2001, 01:57PM at leftbehind.com
“The bit about the Antichrist getting stuck between the toilet and the tub was crass and tacky. Not funny at all.” -Wife of the author
