Rated 4.81/5 based on 21 reviews
This is the first of three novels which challenge the interpretations of prophecy given by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, in the Left Behind series. A string of appendices at the back of the book come from articles McKay wrote before he penned “ Survivors”. With the help of friends in Los Angeles, London, and Sydney, more than a million copies of this title have been sold to the general public... More

The book is so relevant to what is happening at the moment and it just makes a lot of sense. The opening scene gets you hooked straight away!

Very punchy. Bible prophecy is a subject that´s always interested me, but it´s hard to understand. This book gives a very real and pertinent perspective on how prophecy is relevant to modern day life. Kind of a spooky read, especially if you are from the U.S.!

Review by: P44 on June 01, 2014 :
In the beginning, I thought the book was quite good, but now, the pilot (what was his name?) just met that German guy with the leaflet in London.

And really, that scene is badly written because it's almost impossible to read all that gobbledigook in that "strong German accent". I also find it offensive.

It's not is if German people couldn't speak proper English, and I really don't need to read such a ridiculous scene in a book by an author who probably speaks only ONE language, English, and assumes anyone else who learns a foreign language can only be barely intelligible.

Well, I'll now read the rest of the book. Maybe. But I definitely don't agree with all these five-star ratings.

Just reiterating from the initial blurb about "Survivors"... McKay has given us A LOT of practical advice in it before the difficult times come, preparing us in many different ways, both physically and spiritually.

Fantastic read. Suspense, drama, highly informative, but above all it contains so much truth.

Review by: john chucks VIII on Nov. 03, 2013 :
I started in the middle of the trilogy (listening) so it's interesting to read this book now and get some of the back story on Rayford.

Again, you've managed to throw together characters from very different backgrounds and show how they csn work together despite those differences.

Keep up the good work!

Review by: Julia Murphy on Oct. 19, 2013 :
A scarey apocolyptic story, but still quite believeable. A reminder of how quickly world events can change. Again, Mckay exposes institutionalised religion and shows that only personal belief will survive in a crisis.

Review by: BookemLou on Oct. 14, 2013 :
If anybody has read 'Armageddon for Beginners' by the same author, I would recommend reading this one right after that book. It takes the information contained in McKay's analysis of the Book of Revelation (and Daniel), and integrates it into a suspenseful story. It's much like the Left Behind novels, although, as Mckay points out in the appendices at the end of the book, it maintains a much more Christian focus than that series. BTW, the appendices in themselves were very thought provoking. Well done.

Excellent story! I could not put it down.

What was so amazing about this book was that, it makes it so easy to understand the issues raised the in the book of Revelation.

It also does good job of interwoving Jesus' teachings into the story. Well done.

Experiencing Rayford's (the main character in McKay's book) emotional highs and lows, and experiencing him make some very important life changing decisions, I am hopeful that this will also give many readers (as it did for me) the sense and purpose that they too can do something to make a change not only for their own benefit, but for the future of the generations to come, and the new world that will be come, ushered in by Jesus himself!

Review by: ben martin on Sep. 25, 2013 :
I found this book to be really inspiring and spiritually spot on.

It paints a very clear picture IMO of what we can expect to come in the years ahead, but more importantly how to prepare for it all.

It's got action, suspense, but also an emotional depth, that should keep most people on the line until the end.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in prophecy, the teachings of Jesus and how it all works together. I liked it, I hope you will too.

Review by: John Barlow on Sep. 24, 2013 :
This book is absolutely brilliant.

What would things look like if the prophesies from the book of Revelation and the book of Daniel came to pass? Well probably something like 'Survivors'.

An interesting and stimulating read from cover to cover. The appendices at the end, and the authors commentary sections are a very nice touch to the over all experience of the novel. The story itself is captivating and laced with nuggets of truth and insightful observation regarding the spiritual state of humanity.

And if you like page-turners look no further, I don't think I have read any book faster than I did this one.

This book changed my life. I devoured it over two evening sessions of reading, and my thirst for understanding endtimes issues was seriously quenched for the first time ever (after having tried to squeeze some drops of moisture from the Left Behind series).

It is more than just a story about the end-times, it offers a spiritual wake-up call. It is both shocking and deeply satisfying. It gives answers and understanding, and will (hopefully!) leave you questioning your purpose in life.

Review by: ShaktiBetween on Sep. 23, 2013 :
"Survivors" is an absolutely fantastic combination of story and profound teaching.
It's evident to me that McKay was deeply inspired when composing this work.
Therefore it really is a great read, and I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on it.

I found Survivors to be an absolute page-turner. There are some deep truths embedded in this book which I found very relevant to my own life. I appreciate the way McKay shares important knowledge in an accessible way. A must read!

Review by: Joe Blow on Sep. 19, 2013 :
A great answer to the Left Behind series. It is refreshing to hear someone saying it like it is.

Quite apart from the interesting storyline, this condensed version of the Left Behind series gives practical information that will be invaluable in the years ahead.

Should be a best seller.

Review by: Lucy Brown on Sep. 19, 2013 :
After reading Dave McKay's other books(Armageddon for Beginners and Listening) on the subject of bible prophecy, this one has to be my favorite!

All three books have made me think very deeply about what it means to live in this time period that we are currently in, and what each of us should be doing with our time, right now!
