"That was old Pastor Billings droning on again about the Rapture, and Judd was bored out of his skull. A sarcastic sixteen-year-old, way too cool for all this Jesus stuff, Judd had even lied about receiving Christ as his Lord and personal Savior. But poor hotheaded Judd is about to be very, very sorry.
The first book in the children's version of the Left Behind series introduces us to Judd ("The Runaway") and his three imperfect companions: Vicki ("The Rebel"), Lionel ("The Liar"), and Ryan ("The Skeptic"). These four teens, for one reason or another, all failed to submit to the power of the living Lord, despite their friends' and parents' best efforts.
And when Pastor Billings' Rapture actually happens - sending Christian-piloted trains, planes, and automobiles crashing as millions of true believers literally vanish in the blink of an eye, leaving behind nothing but their skivvies and their W.W.J.D. necklaces - the four wayward teenagers get religion and fast. The saga continues when they receive a second chance in book two." - Paul Hughes, Amazon.com.
For ages 10 to 14.
