Who killed Nicolae Carpathia, one-world global ruler and Antichrist? The Indwelling: The Beast Takes Possession eventually solves this mystery, but keeps you guessing along the way.

Suspicion in Nicolae's murder revolves around the leader of the Tribulation Force, Rayford Steele, who flees Jerusalem in fear for his life. While millions of mourners flood New Babylon to attend the memorial for its beloved, charismatic leader, members of the Force scatter around the globe, with only three remaining in the safe -- or perhaps not-so-safe -- house. Rayford is marked as the prey in a worldwide manhunt, becoming a danger to the Force members who try to help him. As the battle rages between Heaven and Earth, the Beast takes control, unleashing the second half of the Tribulation with calamitous results.

What has life become after the Rapture of the Church, the cataclysm prophesied in the Book of Revelation? In the seventh volume in their phenomenally successful Left Behind series, New York Times bestselling authors Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim F. LaHaye depict a battered Earth amid swirling chaos. The Indwelling resumes the story of those left behind in a a dynamic, apocalyptic novel that maybe -- just maybe -- could take place in a not-too-distant future.

Whether or not you believe in the Bible, Left Behind does make for an interesting tale of comfort through crisis (especially post 9/11), conspiracy, a father's relationship to his daughter, and how a newsman deals with removing his feelings to get to a story. The best way to read this series is as a fictional novel in which extraordinary events have happened, people will start to believe in religion. Details are taken out of the Book of Revelation and fiction is added to make it an enjoyable read. I enjoyed the book and the and the rest of the series intense action and feeling which makes them page turners.

The members of the Tribulation Force face their most dangerous challenges. Some are murder suspects; others test the precarious line between subversion and being revealed.

It's the midpoint of the seven-year Tribulation. A renowned man is dead and the world mourns. IN heaven, the battle for the ages continues to rage untill it spills to earth and hell breaks loose.

Jenkins and LaHaye weave a compelling story of a very believeable potential "going-down" of end times events as prophesied in sacred scriptures of Judeo-Christian faiths. Unforgettable characters are teamed with a thrilling and convoluted plot, timed against the chaotic backdrop of the Christian resisitance against the AntiChrist during the Great Tribulation in this well-written continuation of the Left Behind Series. Highly recommended as a work of fiction-this series is hard to put down. Prepare for a case of done-in-a-day reading--and be prepared to want to read them again.

if you remember that this is a work of FICTION, this is a great series for a person interested in in spiritual matters.

I didn't care for this one. The entire book took place during the funeral of the antichrist (Nicolae Carpathia). It seemed like it really dragged. I am a big fan of the series, I hope the author was just using this book to set up the story for the last couple of books. The only real exciting thing in the book was the discovery of the assassin but then again, you kind of guessed it during the previous book. The membership of the Tribulation Force is constantly changing, more are dying but more are also being saved. I can't wait to see how the authors present the final chapter of this storyline.
