This is a very good book, well worth reading to examine the support for, and objections to, the Pre-Tribulation Rapture teaching. I have the revised and expanded version of the book.

I hold the posttribulational view, so I don't agree with Walvoord on the timing of the "rapture." But the book gives a good and thorough explanation of the pretribulational view. I read Ladd's The Blessed Hope (posttribulational view) before I read this book. I wish that Walvoord would have interacted more with Ladd's book.

Excellent Book

The best explanation of the rapture that I have encountered so far. It's great a reference book for Christians to keep in their library.
