I was raised to believe in the Pre- trib rapture. But my reading of the Bible gave me many questions. After reading this book I have changed to Rosenthal's position. For example, one of the strong points of the Pre- Tri. stand is the removal of the 'One who restrains' in ll Thes. 2:7. They say this is the removal of the church/ Holy Spirit. But this book's explanation( that Daniel 12:1 is the O.T. background, and not that Michael 'arises' but he 'stands aside') is more compelling. Then when God tells Michael to get back in the battle for Israel he will give a victory shout (l Thes.4:16). It is sad how we tend to read our views into the Bible, rather than let it dictate to our views. It appears to me that the Pre- wrath position is the right view. I hold to this view of the rapture now even though it is hurting my attempts to find a church to pastor again. But the Bible holds my conscience captive. Thanks, Marv. You make all the Biblical data hold together.

This book is extremely well written and so easy to read. The author's message is easily understood and one is personally free and able to examine it fully in context with the Scriptures from beginning to end.
Whether the author is correct or not in his interpretation of the Scriptures, I do not feel qualified to say, but his intent is openly sincere.
I have read many, many books on Biblical prophecy over the past twenty years. Many of the interpretations offered in these books have confused me and have left me with doubts which have bred fear and uncertainty.
This book has in many ways clarified all my uncertainties. The author's interpretation of the Rapture/Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the Great Tribulation puts everything into a clear context. His studies of Daniel and the Old Testament prophets, the Book Of Revelation and the rest of the New Testament present a clear portrayal of the last days.
Whether all elements of the Church follow the author's line is perhaps secondary to making sure that they are all personally aware of the possibilities of the events occurring as outlined in this book. It would be folly to find the Church and oneself proceeding headlong into the Great Tribulation without being aware of what the author has portrayed here with great clarity.
The author remains utterly steadfast in his fundamental Christian beliefs, although his interpretation of the timing and events surrounding the Rapture/Second Coming and the Great Tribulation has changed. Thus prompting his writing of this book.
I recently read another similar book by Michael John Rood, also available on Amazon, entitled 'The Mystery Of Iniquity'. I highly recommend this book too.
The events described are not far away. This is clear to even those with only a passing interest. We need to study the Scriptures relating to our times and be aware of what could possibly be facing us in a very short time. Kindest regards.

This was the first official book on the prewrath rapture, first published in 1990. Consequently, many people make every detail of Rosenthal's arguments in this book synonymous with the prewrath view itself. This puts an unfortunate amount of pressure on this book. This was the first formal presentation of the prewrath rapture, and since that time, the tangential details of this view have been refined. However, the basics outline of the view are solidly presented here, unchanged over time, and are -- in my view -- unshakeable. This is a classic volume that is a "must read" for anyone interested in various positions on the rapture.
What I like most about this book is its grace. The arguments for the prewrath timing of the rapture are extremely well presented, clear, and solid. But it is Rosenthal's grace in dissention and plea for unity among Christian brethren -- regardless of end-times view -- that is so impressive. Rosenthal himself was forced out of a position of authority based on his change in view from pretrib to prewrath and his experience has been since mirrored by many godly men and women in positions of authority. When did the timing of the rapture become a test of orthodoxy like the trinity, the blood atonment, and the resurrection? If I may borrow Paul's wise comment from two-thousand years ago, "My brethren, it ought not be so."
The prewrath rapture is the only presentation of the rapture timing that answers all of the scriptural problems associated with rapture debates while taking the scriptures in their normative meaning.

Of all the doctrinal topics that divide evangelical Christians, the study of Eschatology ("last things" or end-times prophecy) is surely one of the most polarizing, particularly where it touches on the rapture of the church.

All but a minority of Christians agree that Jesus Christ will return to the earth someday, and that He will rapture, (i.e., physically "catch-away") His believers at some point; however, there is a great deal of disagreement as to exactly when these events will take place or, indeed, whether they truly are separate events at all. Pre-tribulationists insist that Christ will rapture His church prior to the beginning of the seven-year "Tribulation period," also known as the "70th Week of Daniel." Mid-tribulationists, as their name implies, see the rapture occurring in the middle of the 70th Week. Pre-wrath adherents see the rapture taking place at some point during the last three-and-one-half years of the 70th Week, just prior to the period of time when God will begin pouring out His wrath on Antichrist's world kingdom. Finally, post-tribulationists see the rapture taking place at the same time as the glorious appearing of Christ, which all four viewpoints agree takes place at the very end of the 70th Week.

Like many Christians, including myself, Marvin J. Rosenthal was once a card-carrying member of the pre-tribulationist school, the viewpoint which has dominated evangelical Christianity for the last century (see the best-selling "Left Behind" books for a fictionalized version of this eschatological timeline). In time, however, as he studied the topic in greater depth, Rosenthal came to believe that pre-tribulation rapturism was fatally flawed, and he began to re-evaluate prophetic teachings in search of the truth behind the rapture question.
