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. hat 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.
