Jerry Bruce Jenkins (born Sep 23, 1949) is an US novelist and biographer who have written more than 185 books. Born in Michigan, he is widely known as the co-author of the famous Left Behind series of books with Tim LaHaye. He has written books on a wide range of genres such as mysteries, children’s adventures, non-fiction and even romance novels. In 2005 Jenkins and LaHaye was ranked 9th in the Hall of Fame on the 10th anniversary of where authors were ranked according to the largest number of books sold on the website since its inception in 1995. He got featured on the Newsweek magazine cover in 2004. There is little doubt that he is one of the celebrated novelists of modern times.


It is interesting to note that as many as 20 books have reached the Bestsellers List in New York Times and 7 books have occupied the #1 spot. Desecration, the 9th book in the much acclaimed Left Behind series, is also the world’s largest selling book in 2001. In fact, all his books have managed to record sales of over 70 million copies.

Children’s books and Young Adult Fiction

He has authored a huge number of books for children including sports based books which are of special interest to the young readers. The Dallas O’Neil and Baker Street Sports Club series deserves special mention here.


His list of non-fiction books include biographies of noted personalities like Nolan Ryan, Joe Gibbs, Orel Hershiser, Hank Aaron and Walter Payton among others. The books on Hershiser and Ryan featured on the NY Times bestseller list. Jenkins also assisted the famous Dr Billy Graham in compiling his autobiography titled –Just As I Am – which is also a NY Times bestseller. Jerry has worked with Dr Graham for 13 months and he considers this time period as his lifetime privilege.


Desecration is the 9th book in the famous Left Behind series penned by Jerry B Jenkins. The book was published in 2001 by Tyndale House. It featured in the NY Times Bestseller list for as many as 19 weeks and was also the best selling novel for the year 2001.

In this book the Anti-Christ has stopped his pretending. Nicolae, the main protagonist, prepares for his trip to the temple on the back of a pig so that he is able to destroy the holiness simply by sacrificing it. When the temple is finally defiled, millions of Jews rebel against Nicolae and the majority of them become believers. On the other hand, the Tribulation Force launches Operation Eagle – a movement to lead the huge group of believers to the refuge city of Petra. The group is being led by Dr Chaim who has turned into a modern-day Moses. He confronts Nicolae and leads the ever faithful to the refuge.

Meanwhile in Chicago, Chloe wanders off and comes across a group of believers near the safe house. The book ends with a hysterical Nicolae who is on the verge of believing that he is going to wipe out 1 million believers.

The events in the book actually take place 25 days into the Great Tribulation and the newly resurrected Carpathia develops a fondness for gruesome killing. There are deft touches of standard Left Behind humor and even glimpses of some romance in the last few days. Just like all other books, the readers are left guessing as the disaster ends and their questions are answered when they read the next installment.


The Kingdom Come is the 16th book of the iconic Left Behind series which was released in 2007. The events in this book take place right from the day after the Glorious Appearing and till the final day of the Millennium.

The book opens up when the horror of Tribulation are over and Jesus Christ has finished setting up his perfect kingdom on Earth. The believers from all around the world have started enjoying a new relationship with the Lord which is near perfect and the earth is a transformed place now. Yet the evil still resides in the heart of the unbelievers. As the Millennium comes to an end, the final group of the unrepentant prepares to launch a brand new offensive against the Lord himself which sparks the final conflict from where only one side will emerge victorious.

When the Millennium ends, the Believers go to the Heaven. The famous Great White Throne Judgment takes place and all the unbelievers are thrown into the cast of deadly fire. Earth is destroyed and the reduced to just fine particles from fire by Heaven and from deep inside the Earth. After the completion of the Judgment, Jesus finally and instantly creates whole new earth and a new Heaven descends upon it which ultimately ushered in a new heaven and a new earth. The believers are now welcomed to the New Earth and New Jerusalem which are destined to reign till eternity.

Kingdom Come is the final installment in the saga. Jerry Jenkins once again unites with Tim LaHaye to bring out this gem of a book. The book is very entertaining and the most important and interest part is the final victory. The part that any reader would like is the portrayal of Jesus. He is one of the many relatable persons a reader would ever meet and after finishing the book, the reader would actually want to meet him in person!


The novelist also owns Jenkins Entertainment which is a major film-making company in Los Angeles. The company had produced Midnight Clear which is a critically acclaimed movie and based on the book having the same name.


Jenkins and his wife along with their three sons and a number of grandchildren lives in the Black Forest area of Colorado. He is the former vice-President of publishing and a famousBible Institute of Chicago. Jenkins has been a member of its Board of Trustees since 2000. He has been a regular on a popular radio program of Dr James Dobson and is also a much invited speaker and humorist. He has been conferred as many as 4 honorary doctorates and uses his personal blog to train the next generation of aspiring writers.
