Not A Critical Darling.

Are you a fan of the Left Behind series of religiously inspired novels? If so you probably won't like slactivist's ongoing critique of the title book of the series. But for many others it will be a fascinating look at this highly popular, and in my opinion highly silly, tale. The responses in the comments section are also quite interesting, and often head off on tangents inspired by observations on Left Behind. Supposedly the combined series and its spinoffs have sold some 55 million copies. Presumably most readers actually think this stuff is true to what may happen, but who can really know. Some folks obviously read these book for the sheer badness of them.
