** At a normal pace I can transverse those two miles in half an hour even in the hottest summer day (with a temperature of 100F/40 C) and after having spent more hours walking, and this being an average Joe who, besides being used to long walks and liking them, have nothing special in terms of training. Looks like a CriticalResearchFailure.

** Before the series even begins, Russia fires its entire military arsenal at Isreal and manages not to hit a single person. Comparatively, making a bullet or sword miss is child's play for God.

* I don't see why Carpathia had to negotiate with Chaim Rosenzweig for the formula for crop growing in order to take control of the world through their bellies. Carpathia is in regular contact with Satan, who is a spiritual entity. If Chaim Rosenzweig's formula is just science, then Satan should be intelligent enough and knowledgeable enough to have figured it out. If not, then he could just send some invisible demons into Chaim Rosenzweig's laboratory and steal the secret for themselves.

** It's all part of Carpathia fulfilling what the book of Daniel says about "the prince that shall come" in the "70 weeks" prophecy. In Daniel 9:27, it says that the prince "shall confirm a covenant with many for one week", which is a period of seven years. The book of Isaiah also speaks about Israel making "a covenant with hell" which they believe promises them protection, which as interpreted by the Left Behind books is Nicolae Carpathia promising Israel peace for a seven-year licensing agreement for the synthetic fertilizer formula. The book series seems to require that you are either well-studied in futuristic end-times theology or that you do your homework and seek out the answers for yourself.

** If God created the laws of nature, physics, and science, and He is Lord over all creation, then He has authority to supersede those laws for His purposes whenever He wants to and leave us puzzled over how it's actually accomplished.

** WhenIWasYourAge, we walked twenty miles to school every day in the driving snow. And it was uphill, both ways!

** Two miles is nothing. I'm a bookworm who doesn't get much exercise and I walk way more than two miles to get to and from my classes each day without much trouble. The only things that get me to Buck's level of exhaustion are the hills and stairs. My university is known for having a ridiculous number of hills and stairs[[hottip:*: and burning couches]].

* Just how was the supposed immunity to death supposed to work in later books? Those scenes where the villains use swords or guns, and the bullets miss or go right through? What, do true christians just become intangible ghosts for a brief period?
