In this book, Who Will Be Left Behind and When? Dave Bussard takes us back to the Bible to examine what it teaches on the end times and the rapture of the Church. Written in an easy-to-read style, the title critically examines the teaching of the pretribulation theory of the rapture that is the foundation of the Left Behind series. Bussard explores the books of Daniel, Matthew, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, and Revelation, and builds a solid case for the timing of the rapture. This is far from another dry book on eschatalogy. Rather, it is a wake-up call to believers to examine what they believe and to realize the vital importance of our understanding of Christ's return. A proper understanding of the return of Christ affects not only our present spiritual walk, but will have profound consequences for those who will face the final days of this age.

For the past twenty years, evangelical prophecy novels have been a powerful presence on American bestseller lists. Emerging from a growing conservative culture industry, the genre dramatizes events that many believers expect to occur at the end of the age - the rapture of the saved, the rise of the Antichrist, and the fearful tribulation faced by those who are "left behind." Seeking the forces that drove the unexpected success of the Left Behind novels, Crawford Gribben traces the gradual development of the prophecy fiction genre from its eclectic roots among early twentieth-century fundamentalists. The first rapture novels came onto the scene at the high water mark of Protestant America. From there, the genre would both witness the defeat of conservative Protestantism and participate in its eventual reconstruction and return, providing for the renaissance of the evangelical imagination that would culminate in the Left Behind novels. Yet, as Gribben shows, the rapture genre, while vividly expressing some prototypically American themes, also serves to greatly complicate the idea of American modernity-assaulting some of its most cherished tenets. Gribben concludes with a look at "post-Left Behind" rapture fiction, noting some works that were written specifically to counter the claims of the best-selling series. Along the way, he gives attention not just to literary fictions, but to rapture films and apocalyptic themes in Christian music. Writing the Rapture is an indispensable guide to this flourishing yet little understood body of literature.

The Scope of a Passage to be Gathered from its Structure. The Biblical Usage of Words Essential to their Correct Interpretation. The Context Always Essential to the Interpretation of Words. The First Occurrence of Words, Expressions, and Utterances Often Essential to their Interpretation. The Place Where a Passage Occurs is Often Essential to its Full Interpretation. No One Passage to be Interpreted in a Sense Repugnant to Others that are Clear. The Importance of Accuracy in the Study of the Words of Scripture. and more.
