Publisher's Description

...he has kept the "blessed hope" of the pretribulational Rapture alive and well.

It would be impossible to write the history of the evangelical church of the last half of the twentieth century without giving Dr. John Walvoord a prominent position. For more than sixty years he has stood, without apology, for the literal interpretation of all Scripture, particularly Bible prophecy. More than any other one man he has kept the "blessed hope" of the pretribulational Rapture alive and well.

As president of Dallas Theological Seminary for forty years, he guided the training of more young ministers than any other person in America. He brought together one of the most qualified seminary faculties ever assembled. Names like Charles Ryrie, Dwight Pentecost, Merrill F.Unger, and Stanley Toussaint-all men committed to the literal interpretation of the Word of God and the literal, physical return of Christ to set up His millennial kingdom.

Dr. Walvoord's writings, particularly on prophetic subjects, are interesting yet scholarly, inspiring while not being Christian while at the same time meaningful to the Bible scholar. He is one of the most quoted pretribulational writers in the world.

Today's church owes a great debt to this man. Anyone who emphasizes the imminent coming of Christ, as has Dr. Walvoord, has helped to fire the spirit of holiness, evangelism, and missionary vision in the hearts of pastors and believers. Dr. John Walvoord has done for the present-generation church what John Nelson Darby did in the nineteenth century-he has kept the torch of prophetic expectation alive and well in the hearts of missions.

"I thank my God upon every remembrance of you-Philippians 1:3 I am thankful for your clear, uncomplicated communication of Scripture and its doctrinal content. I appreciate this more every year as I associate with leaders in evangelicalism who do not know or understand what the Bible teaches...It is a privilege to thank you, to pay tribute to you, and to extend my best wishes to you on this milestone occasion. And my best wishes to Mrs.Walvoord, who stood by you and helped make it all happen."

"History bears witness that those who begin well often end poorly. Exceptions to this rule, therefore, stand out as giants worthy of admiration, emulation, and praise. You are one of those servants of Christ. Dr. Walvoord, who have inspired us to go beyond what we though we could be and do."

    Excellent book in every sense of the word. True to the scriptures, very well written and easy to read. A "must read" for anyone who desires to learn more about Bible prophecy. Dr. Walvoord was a Godly man who lived his life according to the Bible. I have spoken to several students of DTS who described him as a wonderful Bible teacher who inspired his students.
