This book actually made me stop believing what everyone else says about the bible and actually read and study it for myself. So in that sense it changed my life. If you can find a copy of it, I would highly recommend it. There is too much opinion out there passing itself off as authentic in our Christian book stores. 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2 is very clear. My friends can contact me for any questions. ;-)

Ok, most of you don't care with a passion, but this topic is for some reason very interesting to me. I don't totally buy all of Rosenthal's arguments. Also, he admittedly says much of the 'misinterpretation' of Revelation is based on whether the "day of the Lord" is the whole 7-year period of Daniel or only a small amount of time over half of the way into that. And then the rest of the book is based on having proven the latter. A very small pillar (one argument) to base an entire thesis/book on, ...more

much better, healthier perspective. spoiler: Rapture comes before God's wrath is poured out and Christians endure at least part of the Tribulation. ...more

This book changed my view on the timing of rapture

Mr. Rosenthal has set forth one of the best defenses out there of the Christian end-times theory of a mid-tribulation rapture position (when Jesus instantaneously transports Christians on earth to heaven), allowing believers to escape the worst of an end-times seven year time of trouble. A bit quirky, but informative.

I first heard about Marvin Rosenthal back in the 90's when I was reading his Messianic magazine, Zion's Fire. I had been raised a pre-tribulation rapturist, but when I read an article where he posed evidence supporting a mid-tribulation rapture, it made a lot more sense. When I saw this book in a used bookstore, I had to get it, so I could learn more about this fairly new interpretation of end-times scripture.

I appreciate the author's introductory chapter, where he tells about how he reluctantly

Marv Rosenthal brings up some interesting arguments in support of his pre-wrath rapture view, but most of them hinge on accepting his argument that "The Day of the Lord," "Beginning of Birth Pangs," and "Great Tribulation" are technical terms that do not overlap. I for one am not convinced since "Day of the Lord" appears to be a fairly flexible term that can refer to either the whole end times scenario or a specific facet thereof based on context. I take issue with some of his other interpretati ...more

I have used this book for the reference and cross-walk of various beliefs for end time and the rapture of the church.

Horrible exegesis but at the time I was looking for answers to an equally horrible doctrinal belief. Can you say 'Left Behind' ? ...more
