Item description for The Church and the Tribulation by Robert H. Gundry...
Overview This book propounds the thesis that Jesus will return after the tribulation and that the first resurrection will occur at that time.
Publishers Description In the opening chapter, Robert Gundry states, 'It is hoped that the following pages will contribute to an understanding and appreciation of the posttribulational position and that it will do so in a manner characterized by 'wisdom from above. . . First pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy' (James 3:17).' In keeping with this expressed desire, the author presents his thesis regarding Christ's second coming, not as a polemical argument, but as a reasonable and tenable position. This book propounds the thesis that Jesus will return after the tribulation and that the first resurrection will occur at that time. Dr. Gundry believes that biblical evidence points most naturally to this conclusion. Because of his discerning analysis of Scripture, his careful logic, and the thoughtful presentation of his views, he is one of today's leading spokesmen for posttribulational eschatology.

Truth in Love Apr 6, 2009
I am very grateful for Gundry's book! He presented a well thought out presentation of the post-tribulation rapture. This is the first book I have read on this view, and I only read it after comeing to this view myself. I had been a pre-tribber for over 15 years. But I always held it as a non-essential, with the knowledge that learned brethren held to other views. After preparing an inductive lesson on Matthew 24-25, I came to the firm conviction that the post-tribulation rapture is clearly taught in the scriptures. Then I went in search of authors that have gone before me. And that's how I discovered this book.
There are a lot of mean spirited words on both sides of the camp. I commend Robert Gundry in his ability to present a cogent argument from scripture without vitriol, but with love. I will be buying his other book on the subject soon, "First the Antichrist".
Got Rapture! Mar 12, 2008
If you want to know more about the rapture read this one. It is very interesting. I personally am pre-wrath but can see the potential in this well stated scenario. Pre-trib is deceptive error. Preterism like wise. Study them only to see their error is my opinion, and I no longer waste my time on that. The more literal we interpret the word the better off we are.
Theological Brilliance Oct 16, 2007
Out of all the Post-Trib. books I have read (ranging from George Ladd to Millard Erickson) this is by far the hardest to grasp yet the most powerful. Gundry refutes Pre-Tribulationalism on EVERY aspect. He constantly uses their arguement, see if it COULD work, and refutes it. There is a brilliance within the style of reading that I had found to be hard to understanding (I blame me for that). I could only recommend this book if someone who has spent lots of time already studying Pre or Post Tribulationalism because this is a step (rather a leap) up from George Ladd or Walvoord. I plan on reading it through more than three times to understand every arguement. One the unique things with his view of the Post-Trib. Advent is the Dispensational factor unlike Ladd who was more of a Historical Futurist. Great book and Great Scholarship!
Why continue to be deceived? Jun 28, 2006
Robert Gundry gives good information in this book, though he errs in several areas related to modern Israel. Tim Cohen's materials (see below) are much better and more thorough:
Tim LaHaye, Jerry Jenkins, and others in the Pre-Trib circle, such as Ed Hindson, Tommy Ice, Chuck Missler, Zola Levitt, Thomas McCall, John Hagee, Grant Jeffrey, Marlin Maddox, Perry Stone, Texe Marrs, John Walvoord (deceased), etc., continue to put forth the same deceptions that Hal Lindsey popularized decades ago. The notion of a pre-tribulation rapture is foreign to scripture, it is foreign to the teachings of the early Church, and it is grooming the Church for destruction through ignorance and lack of preparation for what is really coming. These men are novices and not prophecy "experts" or "scholars" by any stretch of the imagination; they are those who tickle the ears of gullible Christians. Why continue to be deceived? Tim Cohen, in his excellent book, "The AntiChrist and a Cup of Tea," provides biblically sound and testable evidence to show that the coming AntiChrist is known NOW. Not only that, the same author (Tim Cohen) has now put out the strongest presentation on the whole issue of the rapture EVER offered to the saints of God in Christ: "The REAL Rapture". If you really want to know the truth about the timing of the coming rapture, then you need to hear Tim Cohen's "The REAL Rapture" (based on a volume in his forthcoming "Messiah, History, and the Tribulation Period" series (see Prophecy House's site for details on these items, which are also available via this site).
An academic defense of posttribulationism Nov 5, 1999
This is still the best apologetic for the posttribulation position I've read. I'm disappointed that there aren't more books on the posttribulational position out there. But Gundry does a good job at critiquing the popular pretribulational view and setting forth a solid exegetical defense of posttribulationism. His interpretation of John 14 is a little wrong. But other than that, it's really good.
