He co-wrote the apocalyptic thrillers of the "Left Behind" series that have sold 55 million copies in eight years. "Desecration," written with the Rev. Tim LaHaye, like the rest of the series, sold more than any piece of fiction worldwide in 2002, publishing experts say.

Rebecca Thomson Brown died the second time she plunged from the Fremont Canyon Bridge. But friends say it was the first time 19 years ago that really killed her. The second time, just last month, merely sealed her fate. It was the night of Sept. 24, 1973, when Rebecca and her 11-year-old sister Amy were abducted by a pair of wild-eyed hoodlums who surreptitiously slashed a tire on the girls' car at a Casper convenience store and then feigned an offer to take them home.

Coming soon to a church near you: Hollywood. Producers of the "Left Behind" movie series plan to screen "Left Behind: World at War" in 3,000 churches in the U.S. and Canada this weekend, bypassing theater chains before Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases it Tuesday on DVD. The church-focused marketing campaign is reminiscent of the pamphleting and advance-sale tickets that preceded the theatrical release of the Trinity Broadcasting Network-funded "The Omega Code" six years ago.
