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 among evangelicals. Scholars generally hold one of three perspectives on the timing of and circumstances surrounding the rapture, all of which are presented in Three Views on the Rapture. The recent prominence of a Pre-Wrath understanding of the rapture calls for a fresh examination of this important but contested Christian belief. Alan D. Hultberg (PhD, Trinity International University and professor of New Testament at Talbot School of Theology) explains the Pre-Wrath view; Craig Blaising (PhD, Dallas Theological Seminary and president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) defends the Pre-Tribulation view; and Douglas Moo (PhD, University of St. Andrews and professor of New Testament at Wheaton College) sets forth the Post-Tribulation view. Each author provides a substantive explanation of his position, which is critiqued by the other two authors. 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.

Anthony Shuler4 Stars Out Of 5Not badAugust 1, 2011Anthony ShulerQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This book is really only for futurists which I am not. I read it I when trying to sort out the whole end times/prophecy topic and it was the best treatment of the rapture theory I've come across.If your a non-futurists you may still benefit by getting into the mind of futurism in this book. Either way, still not bad.
