Our four teen heroes--Judd, Vicki, Lionel, and Ryan--are still spooked after the amazing events of The Vanishings (the first book in the Left Behind: The Kids series), when Christ called back millions of his faithful in the blink of an eye, leaving these kids who hadn't accepted Jesus as "instant orphans." Facing the Future continues the cliff-hanging ending of the third book, Through the Flames, where the kids successfully pull off a sting on the man who murdered Lionel's uncle and convert countless others to life with Christ. But they soon realize they have even more to worry about: Bruce thinks he's fingered the great deceiver, the Antichrist, a man named Nicolae Carpathia. The Left Behind kids break out their Bibles to form the Kids Tribulation Force, while Bruce outlines why Carpathia has taken over the instrument of all future evil, the United Nations, and a secret meeting with an eyewitness to evil confirms the kids' worst fears.
