The fourth in the Left Behind series, this book picks up with our main characters immediately following a devastating global earthquake. Buck and Rayford are searching for their loved ones; Rayford's wife Amanda (one of the few characters in this series I care very little for) has her integrity called into question - was she truly a believer? or was she working for Carpathia? - and she's missing; Tsion Ben-Judah begins to post his teachings online and antics ensue to keep the website encrypted so he may continue without GC interruption; and hearts really are turning in great numbers to Christ. Carpathia is on a rampage (when isn't he...) to rebuild his Global Community. Believers begin to recognize a "mark" on the forehead of other true believers (this will play a major part in determining Amanda's truthfulness) and allows more espionage, because really, how else will they have any clue as to who to trust! And, the Judgments begin.
Lots of events....and I can't wait to see what happens next.

In the fourth book of the Left Behind series, the tribulation force has lost some of its numbers and also adds others to their rankings. After an earthquake ¼ of the population is gone taking with it members of the tribulation force, Amanda and Chloe are both missing and the home base for the tribulation force has been destroyed. Buck goes searching for a pregnant Chloe and Rayford goes on a deep sea dive to find the body of his wife Amanda White.
So many things are happening to the tribulation force throughout this book, Tsion Ben-Judah has made the decision to return to Israel in order to teach the 144,000 witnesses. Hattie Burham is found pregnant and in an abortion clinic. They have also learned of a plot that Carpethia plans to kill Rayford and Hattie. Since the earthquake the world has gone crazy, television is full of nudity, torture, and sexuality. The tribulation force has also noticed that believers have a mark on their foreheads that only other believers can see, which helps in recruiting new members to the tribulation force.
Another Left Behind book that will keep you glued to your seats, this book is action packed and twists and turns come at every corner!

The story keeps getting better and better! This book begins after a catastrophic earthquake has taken place. Only Israel was protected. Rayford Steele is still working as a pilot for the antichrist and the way he talks to him is sometimes very humorous. The antichrist is, as well, and it's interesting to imagine what he will really be like.
When the book begins, Amanda and Tsion Ben-Judah are both lost as Rayford and Buck look for them in different parts of the world. Later, doubt is cast on Amanda concerning whether or not she is/was really a believer. The main action of this book concerns Rayford searching for her or her body, and trying to discover if she was really a Christian or was working with Carpathia, the antichrist.
This book is a fast-paced read and I highly recommend it along with the rest of the series. I read Soul Harvest 8 years ago and it's exciting to come back to it again.

This fourth book in the best-selling Left Behind series allows readers to watch the willful fracas between the evil incarnate Nicolae Carpathia and newly founded followers of Christ. Trib Forcers Rayford Steele and Buck Williams get alienated during the world cataclysm. As Rayford chauffeurs Carpathia around his empire, thousands of people begin to hunger for the Truth that continues to defy walls and boundaries. Two prophetic witnesses at the Wailing Wall stir faith for all the new followers. Chaos fervently builds as the world learns about an evil called the Antichrist.
This was a book I reviewed for Tyndale House Publishers.

"Soul Harvest" is the fourth is the series of books by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins chronicling the events that take place in the world during the end times. The books follow several main characters as they fight for their lives and for their faith as the world makes its way to the last days.
In this book, the world has experience a global earthquake. The members of the Tribulation Force who survived are looking for each other amid the chaos that has ensued. While Nicolae is determined to rebuild his Global Community, the Believers of the world are sharing their faith and seeing a soul harvest that has never before been seen.
This is the point in the series where things really start getting bad for the world. Things were bad before, but now the judgments are coming to the earth. The story is fast-paced and action-filled, but it is also sorrowful because so many terrible things are happening.
This series of novels is a fictionalized account of the events of the end times. I enjoyed the whole series. While this book is geared towards Christians, there is enough action and depth to it that should appeal to all.

Rayford and Buck have survived the global earthquake and begin searching for their loved ones yet again. As Tsion goes through notes from Bruce Barnes’ studying, he finds some unsettling journal entries that affect Rayford, and possibly the entire Trib Force and its operations. Tsion Ben-Judah desperately wants to return to Israel to take part in prophecy, but the Trib Force believes he would be in too much danger and his work would best be done from hiding, so he posts his teachings on a website that gain followers faster than anyone can count. It also gets the attention of Carpathia, who is not pleased at all. A meeting of the 144,000 is called, and Carpathia makes plans to be there.
What’s great about these books is that, though there are many, the sub-plots never get confusing or overbearing. You get to follow several of the characters from their points of view without ever feeling lost. The characterizations are wonderful. They come to life so easily that you will have no trouble feeling for them, or hating them in some cases. This is probably one of the most important pieces of literature for the Christian world, but the truth is, even without that stamp of importance, it’s great literature! This is a great story with great characters, and everyone should read it.

Soul Harvest is my favorite book of the Left Behind Series so far. It was extremely exciting with many twists and turns along the way. Although the story has a serious nature, moments of humor are mixed in which make the book even harder to put down. I cannot even begin to imagine what these characters are going through with not only having to experience the many grueling judgments but also having to stand face to face with the Antichrist. With many questions still left unanswered, I cannot wait to start the next book in the series.
