Very good overview of pre, mid., and post trib. rapture and everything related. E.U., Danial's dreams and other religions are not covered here. Not for the very new Christian.

I just finished a bible study on the Book of Revelation and this book came in very handy. End Times is a tough subject to study so I know I will refer to this book often to simplfy what I'm trying to learn & understand.

The book arrived on time and in great shape. It has been a great help in understanding the book on Revelations.

4 of 8 people found the following review helpful By J. Shumway on September 3, 2004
Format: Paperback
The author of this book states that Ellen G. White spiritualized away Christ's second coming. I would like for him to give chapter and verse for that because she was looking for His literal return just like every other Millerite and Seventh-day Adventist. She often refered to it as "the blessed hope". If this author is wrong about that what else is he wrong about? Christ said "Few there be that find it." Study carefully a good KJV Bible and use a good concordance and study history. Read the books of Daniel and Revelation side by side along with everything Christ said about his second coming and prophecy (including false prophets) and you can't go wrong. "Every word of God is pure." With a prayer asking God for understanding He will guide anyone. The Bible explains and defines itself. "Man doth not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."

The one star rating I have given is too high but there was no lower rating available.
