The Rapture of the Church is one of the pivotal points in all of human history, and it is also a point of contention for those who study prophecy. Ankerberg (The Passion and the Empty Tomb: The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus) and Burroughs (Comparing Christianity with World Religions) parse global machinations and help bring seemingly random elements into a cohesive whole by introducing current world events and issues into the pre-tribulation rapture model. Ranging from Lebanon's Hezbollah movement to Islam's own version of the Messiah, and covering prophetical ground from both Testaments, this quickly focuses on the important aspects of the coming conflict in the Middle East.
As timely as today's headlines, and ultimately more important, this is a great resource for understanding the Islamic worldview, getting a larger grasp on the situation in the Gulf, or understanding pre-trib eschatology.
