Three Views on the Rapture : pretribulation, prewrath, or posttribulation
Publication Date: 2010-12-25
The rapture, or the belief that, at some point, Jesus' living followers will join him forever while others do not, is an important but contested doctrine. Scholars generally hold one of three perspectives on the circumstances surrounding the rapture, all of which are presented in this book. A thorough introduction gives a historical overview of the doctrine of the rapture and its effects on the church. The interactive and fair-minded format of the Counterpoints series allows readers to consider the strengths and weaknesses of each view and draw informed, personal conclusions.
Not Afraid of the Antichrist : why we don't believe in a pre-tribulation rapture by Michael L. Brown; Craig S. Keener
Publication Date: 2019-03-19
Despite the popular theology of our day, Christians should not expect to get out of experiencing the tribulation or the end times. Nowhere in the Bible does the Lord promise us this, say Michael Brown and Craig Keener, two leading, acclaimed Bible scholars. In fact, they say, Jesus promises us tribulation in this world. Yet this is no reason to fear. In this fascinating, accessible, and personal book, Brown and Keener walk you through what the Bible really says about the rapture, the tribulation, and the end times. What they find will leave you full of hope.
What Does the Bible Say about the End Times? : a Catholic view by William S. Kurz
Publication Date: 2004-09-01
Many Catholics find themselves confused by current speculations among fundamentalist Christians about the end of the world. These scenarios, often based on convoluted and faulty interpretations of Scripture, offer a blow-by-blow account of God's master plan for closing out history. Through a careful examination of key biblical themes, symbols and imagery from Genesis to Revelation, Scripture scholar Father William Kurz demonstrates that "the Bible is not a puzzle...to construct into an end-time scenario." Instead, he leads the reader to a deeper understanding of God's intent in creating humanity, his persistent efforts to rescue us from our sin, and Jesus' final return in glory to judge the living and the dead.
Christian Eschatology and the Physical Universe by David Wilkinson
Publication Date: 2010-05-27
David Wilkinson shows what a fruitful dialogue this can be. Critiquing the folk eschatology of the Left Behind series, the misguided faith of the scientific optimists and the lack of scientific engagement of the theologians of hope, Wilkinson argues for a rediscovery of the theological theme of new creation and the centrality of bodily resurrection.
