The Washington Post is running A Story on Evangelical Christians Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, authors of the apocalyptic -- and fictional -- \"Left Behind\" series.
They have sold more than 35 million books in seven years and the new one, \"The Remnant,\" debuted at No. 1 on the hardcover fiction bestseller lists of USA Today, Publishers Weekly and the New York Times and No. 5 on The Washington Post list.
These books, and accompanying kids\' versions, graphic novels, audiocassettes and videotapes, have generated hundreds of millions of dollars for the authors and their publisher, Tyndale House. And, according to the authors, some 3,000 people like Blansett have found Jesus while reading the books.
