The Rapture Question Answered: Plain and Simple

Revell, 1997
ISBN: 0800717384


Interest in the end times is increasing and the critical questions every student of end-time prophecy must come to terms with are these: How should Scripture be understood when it speaks of the antichrist: literally or allegorically? And if the antichrist and his persecution are for real, will the church have to undergo this terrible time of persecution, or will she be removed before this time of great tribulation begins? Theological thinkers across America today are hotly debating these burning questions, yet the Bible could not be clearer as to the answers. This book points you to those answers in a readable style that does not sacrifice the scholarship.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
