In 12th Book of Best-Selling Series, Jesus Returns

New York Times

"Like Christian booksellers across the country, Bob Fillingane is doing everything he can to prepare the way for 'Glorious Appearing,' the climactic installment in the 'Left Behind' series of apocalyptic thrillers that goes on sale tomorrow.

Mr. Fillingane, owner of Lemstone Books in Hattiesburg, Miss., has arranged television, radio and newspaper advertisements and even a marquee over the front of his local mall, and next week he will hold a book signing by the authors, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, on a Bible Belt bus tour from Spartanburg, S.C., to Plano, Tex.

Not that 'Glorious Appearing' needs his help, Mr. Fillingane said.

'I really believe that there is a blessing on this series from the Lord,' he said. 'Just like with the Passion movie, it is all part of the warning we get before Christ returns.' He added, 'Many people have asked me, Do you think they will finish the series before Christ comes?'"

If Jesus does come, does that mean they won't make another god-awful movie? If so, count me in.
