A series of books about the pentecostal "end-times" Theories. Supposedly there is some sort of a "rapture" taking the "saved" to heaven and leaving sinners behind.

Premillenial textual criticism of Revelations in pop novel form brought to us by the good folks of the Moral Majority.

There's also a game for PS2 (I think) out there that's based on "Left Behind" too, it caused a bit of a stir since you are supposed to convert infidels (can't recall the terminology it uses) and gain spirit power in the service of the Fightin Jesus- the complaints came from the fact that you can also KILL people who resist you, but it costs you some "spirit", so your character has to pray in order to get "pardoned" for killing folks...
I am sorta morbidly curious about the game- I bet it sucks game-play wise but it might be kinda funny...

Sorry, just wanted to add a related footnote there, carry on

Problem is, as probably sanctus knows better than me, all that stuff about the rapture, etc, is NOT in the Book of Revelations.In fact, it is fairly new theology that sprung from the American Pentecostal movement at the beginning of the last century. Sanctus, care to comment? (our own in-house expert-hah hah hah hah)
