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. The last chapter summarizes the findings of the study with fifty arguments in support of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. These are grouped under headings: Historical Argument, Hermeneutics, Nature of the Tribulation, Nature of the Church, Doctrine of Imminency, The Work of the Holy Spirit, Necessity of an Interval ...more

This is probably one of the worst books I have ever read.

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.

In a sermon, John MacArthur referred to this book as "the finest book on the Rapture ever written." Having read it now, I am certain that I may never need to read another book on the topic. Walvoord answered virtually every question I had sufficiently. This is definitely one for my library.

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.
