shc75 Stars Out Of 5Eye OpeningJanuary 21, 2020shc7Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Had to write a review on this book after reading other reviews here and elsewhere. Pre-Trib or Post-Trib doesn't depend on what you believe or don't believe. It is about what the Bible says about it. Heard this book through audio and I recommend you read it. There are way too many verses you need to search and come to a conclusion on your own. This book opened my eyes. We should not divide over Pre-Trib or Post-Trib, but we need to have our own understanding on this subject. This book provides both sides and gives Bible verses to support Post-Trib.
mikki1 Stars Out Of 5not afraid if the Anti-ChristOctober 29, 2019mikkiQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I don't believe there is no pre-Trib Rapture. I believe this is misleading and false doctrine. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone, unless maybe you had to argue that point of view in a theology class.
AnnMarie5 Stars Out Of 5Not Afraid of the AntichristMay 11, 2019AnnMarieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The writers are Bible scholars and very competent. The topic is a good one. It answered many questions for me. I read it with an open mind as I know it can be a controversial subject but I have to agree with many of their points. It is well worth a good read and one should not pass judgment until the end.
cbcarter3 Stars Out Of 5same old same oldApril 24, 2019cbcarterQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I expected so much more from these two. I have a number of books by both, and their scholarship is usually close to impeccable. I've been around the block a few times, and i realize that every author has an agenda. Everyone does. We wake each day with an agenda. I also realize that no one can possibly be totally objective. What i didn't expect was the straw man caricatures that were recycled here. I mean, if you make up your opponents position out of whole cloth, then of course they are easy to knock down. Brown and Keener are better than this. If you want a good rapture book, then get one where three authors with pre-trib, mid-trib (or pre-wrath), and post-trib debate back and forth, make their arguments, and respond to each other. They seem somewhat obsessed with LaHaye and Jenkins, and their left behind books and viewpoints, or maybe grab a Walvoord viewpoint here and there. There is much better scholarship out their, and viewpoints continuously change or are refined. And what's with the title??!! Are they suggesting that those who believe in a pre-tribulation rapture and "afraid" of the anti-christ? The title should have been a warning. When your title becomes an ad-hominem attack on an opposing view, then what follows will surely disappoint. I myself used to be post-tribulation, but changed over the years. Their attacks on verses used in a pre-trib argument are casually and carelessly dealt with, and often involved stretched redefining of greek words or grabbing ahold of the least used meaning of a word to make their point. Their handling of Rev. 3:10 is an example. It's a quite vacuous argument and doesn't even deal with the key word "out of" effectively and simple interprets "hour" as a vague, let it mean what you want it to, redefinition. This is only an example. Argue against caricatures, and redefine strong points and words. Like i said, I've read a number of their books so I was really expecting some heavy lifting. And truthfully ( a confession here from my previous belief), I've come to wonder whether those who prefer the PT viewpoint aren't in some way a little bit spiritually masochistic, as in, "hey, I'm willing to suffer" or even "I want to suffer and prove myself" tribulationists. A great deal of their argument is that christians suffer all the time all over the world so why should tribulation saints be spared. I don't disagree with the first part of their argument, but the second part doesn't seem to acknowledge the specific purpose of the tribulation period itself. It isn't just a "same old program" compared to the time of the gentiles. This is especially puzzling seeing as how Brown is a messianic Jew! So give it a shot if you want to, but if you are thoroughly grounded in whatever viewpoint you prefer, you won't find anything here to change your mind. Only those with surface beliefs may be tempted to be swayed by their arguments, or find support for theirs.
