Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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!

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".

Format: Paperback
Robert H. Gundry taught for several decades at Westmont College in California, and was a prominent member of the Evangelical Theological Society, until he was forced to resign in 1983 (in a campaign spearheaded by apologist Norman Geisler) because of the controversy over his book, Matthew, a Commentary on His Literary and Theological Art. He has also written First the Antichrist: A Book for Lay Christians Approaching the Third Millennium and Inquiring Whether Jesus Will Come to Take the Church Out of the World Before the tribul.

In the first chapter of this 1973 book, he states the following:

"The present thesis is threefold: (1) direct, unquestioned statements of Scripture that Jesus Christ will return after the tribulation and that the first resurrection will occur after the tribulation, coupled with the absence of statements placing similar events before the tribulation, make it natural to place the rapture of the church after the tribulation; (2) the theological and exegetical grounds for pretribulationism rest on insufficient evidence, non sequitur reasoning, and faulty exegesis; (3) positive indications of a posttribulational rapture arise out of proper exegesis of relevant Scripture passages and derive support from the history of the doctrine."

Here are some quotations from the book:

"But will not the 144,000 Jews evangelize the world by heralding the Gospel of the kingdom during the tribulation? Not a single statement in Scripture supports this common tenet... The two passages which speak of the 144,000 (Rev.

Flawless presentation, explanation, and defense of the post-tribulation viewpoint (done entirely scripturally, mind you, not apart from Scripture). Superb exposing and refutation of the increasingly visibly flawed, yet wildly popular (In America), pre-trib view. The author's style is clear, scholarly, non-combative/non-political, and thoroughly sound and convincing exegesis. I was a dedicated pre-tribber for the past decade since I got saved, and did much reading and studying on it, but in the last few weeks I only then for the first time gave it a truly critical treatment, and only then gave a fair consideration to alternatives. I quickly realized the untenable nature of the entire pre-trib scheme and abandoned it, but didn't yet know whether pre-wrath, mid-trib, or post-trib was the most scripturally-supported position. I read up on pre-wrath and post-trib, and found pre-wrath to be subject to many of the same fatal shortcomings as pre-trib. I realized post-trib is the most scripturally supported and (contrary to what I had thought for the past ten years) the least problematic view, but certain questions/confusions remained regarding the implications for certain notions and particular verses. This book addresses all of them, and reveals the many, many fatal flaws of the pre-trib scheme of interpretation. It also briefly touches upon mid-trib and pre-wrath, but by far the bulk of the book is aimed at the pre-trib camp, and it deals a devastating, dare I say nigh irrefutable, blow to it. A must read for every Christian not entirely familiar with or not thoroughly convinced of the post-trib paradigm Scripture teaches.
