Kingdom Come: The Final Victory by Tim LaHaye, Jerry B. Jenkins

Kingdom Come met my expectations for the polished duo of LaHaye and Jenkins. When the timeline for the plot needed to cover 1,000 years in under 400 pages, I was a bit sceptical that they could pull it off. They came through by using roughly the first half of the story to give a detailed account of the world under the authority of King Jesus.

The only ones in the new kingdom were Christians left on earth after King Jesus judged the nations. Those Christians who had died both before and during the tribulation returned with Jesus and ruled under Him. The mix of immortals and naturals quickly re-established the nations on earth.

Even though Satan was removed from the earth, those who were born to the naturals had the choice of obedience or rebellion to King Jesus. The only conflict in the plot was the internal agonies that Christian parents felt on seeing their children rebel and the attempts by their friends and family to persuade them to change their minds.

While the authors limited the plot to follow the prophecies given in the Bible, they did an excellent job of building up to a climax and bringing both the book and the series to a grand completion.
