Reviews - What do customers think about Rapture Question (Revised)?

Must read on the "Rapture"  Mar 3, 2010
This is a well written and researched study on the so called "Rapture" event. There is some controversy over this issue by some church leaders. I think this book will go along way to answering many of the questions raised. By using the scripture Dr. Walvoord makes a strong argument for the doctrine of the Rapture of the Church. I highly recommend this book for a serious study of the Rapture Issue.
rapture  Feb 8, 2010
very well researched book, great arguments with scriptural reasoning. gives opposing views as well with scriptural basis.
Great resource.  Dec 12, 2009
For the second time now I've allowed negative this site reviews to influence my decision in buying a book. I finally came across the updated version in a local store and was impressed enough to buy it. This is a great book and should be read alongside the more recent, Dr R. Showers' Maranatha - Our Lord, Come.

Even though Walvoord doesn't address Gundry's latest effort or the more recent pre-wrath rapture view, his arguments are still valid and cogent, and a lot of territory is covered. The limitations with any book of this nature are the sheer volume of possible opposing arguments that makes it difficult to address everything.

I note some of the accusations (use of assumptions, leaps of logic etc) leveled at Walvoord by other reviewers. I've also read and examined their works - mentioned at the end of their respective reviews - and found strong elements of these same issues within their own materials and conclusions, and criticisms of pretribulationism.

Let me cite just one example. I'm confounded by one particular criticism of Walvoord and pretribulationism in one review regarding how many times Jesus returns. The reviewer affirms that the Bible clearly teaches that Jesus returns once, not twice. I find it ironic and telling that this same critic espouses a rapture view that actually teaches a multi-phase return; has elsewhere admitted this and actually attempted a defense of it.

My upbringing wasn't evangelical nor was I spoon fed pretribulationism and I tend to be skeptical of any doctrine until I've looked at it from different angles. I've spent my fair share of time trudging through most of the arguments and rapture views. Having said that, for my money, Walvoord does a great job keeping "assumptions and leaps of logic" in check when making his points.

I highly recommend the book.

Pre-trib Propaganda  Jun 27, 2007
Just more pre-trib propaganda. There is not a single verse in the Bible that says the Rapture will be before the Tribulation. In fact Jesus told us the very opposite (read Matthew 24:29-31 very carefully). Revelation 20:4,5 tells us that the saints martyred in the Tribulation will be in the First Resurrection. The First Resurrection is the RAPTURE! The Rapture is obviously after the Tribulation! It's time to wake up and accept the truth. Place your trust in Jesus Christ not in fictional escapism.
Misguiding, but not arrogant  Feb 6, 2006
I was very frustrated while reading this book. Not only is there assumption after assumption when attempting to interpret certain passages, there's flat out misrepresentation of scripture. Example:

"The situation described in 2 Thessalonians 2 indicates that the teaching that the church would go through the Tribulation was already being advanced by certain teachers whom Paul opposed in this passage (p. 238)."

Walvoord inserts the word "Tribulation," when the passage in question says no such thing. 2 Thessalonians speaks of "the Day of the Lord." In altering the phrase from "Day of the Lord" to "Tribulation," Walvoord misleads many readers into believing the apostle Paul is teaching the Thessalonians that they should "not be quickly shaken from [their] composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the [Tribulation] has come (2 Thess. 2:2)."

Walvoord then explains that Paul is telling the Thessalonians to not be deceived by any message saying that the tribulation has started, because the tribulation could not have begun because the pre-rib rapture has not taken place! Walvoord actually says that Paul is teaching them that post-trib is a false teaching.

Concluding that the "Tribulation" is the same thing as the Day of the Lord is one of many poor conclusions within this book. But I do appreciate the fact that Walvoord admits that there is no single passage that directly teaches a pre-trib rapture, and that the theory is primarily concluded based on inferences. This sets him apart from most pre-trib teachers.
