At many times he is frustratingly guilty of the very fallacies and dogmatism of which he frequently accuses his post-trib opponents--mostly Robert Gundry and occasionally George Ladd. He accuses them of reading Scripture selectively and ignoring or twisting verses which contradict their view, yet he does the same thing throughout the book. For example, in response to the view that the brothers of Jesus mentioned in his Matt. 25:40 judgment could refer to or include Christians and not Jews-by-blood only--on the basis that Jesus said that whoever does the will of his Father is his brother, and sister, and mother (Matt. 12:50)--Walvoord dismissively and dogmatically declares this an "extreme exegesis" (135).
Although, to his credit, the primary thrust of his book is a scripture-focused defense of the pre-trib rapture (albeit a strained one), Walvoord does unfortunately make use at times of the tired emotional argument in favor of pre-tribulationism, which does sadly sway or keep many pre-tribulationists locked into their view, even though emotion is no hermeneutic. Perhaps the most frustrating thing to encounter in the book is when Walvoord argues out of both sides of his mouth--against a particular interpretation or proposition when it favors post-trib, but in favor of the very same thing when it suits pre-trib.Read more ›

I would recommend this book to anyone. Dr. Walvoord was an excellent Bible scholar, a great seminary professor, and man of God. Anyone would benefit any of his writtings.Published on August 2, 2013 by Grandparory
