About the Author
Steven Straub is the son of a Baptist minister and missionary who was raised in a Word-based home where the pre-tribulation rapture theory was considered a Biblical accuracy. For years, Straub accepted this teaching as truth. However, with a thirst for prophecy beginning to develop, investigation into the Scriptures produced many alarming discrepancies that were hard to overlook. Following earnest prayer for wisdom and guidance, the Lord began to reveal truths to Straub in His Word about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ - truths that were contradictory to mainstream church teachings, but compelling enough to change a pre-tribulation rapture believer forever.
Changed is a combination of years of intense research and writing that has culminated in a powerful yet simple approach to understanding Biblical prophecy - specifically in the area of the church rapture and its relation to the coming great tribulation period.

He rightly emphasizes the importance of context in Scripture versus cherry picking a verse here and there. Scripture-defines-Scripture is another helpful rule Mr. Straub employs.
On page 129 he writes "Speculative interpretation produces speculative doctrine."
He doesn't speculate on the rapture or timing of it. He goes to Scripture, most notably Revelation and the OT prophets like Isaiah. The works of Paul and Peter are researched along with what Messiah said.
The author offered an alternative view of what the "Restrainer" is. Something I hadn't thought of.
He also looked at the Day of "The Lord" in OT history from prophets of that era. There is a common link on the subject from both eras.
He did a good job of separating the Great Tribulation from "The Lord's Day" or the "Day of Wrath".
This makes his theory of the rapture more sensible and backed by Scripture.
I recommend this book to anyone with questions about the rapture. Always check eschatological books with Scripture!
However, I couldn't get over the feeling that the chapters were in the wrong order.
Items the author seemed to feel were peripheral, were his strongest arguments. Ones he felt were the blockbusters, while true, left you feeling "well, yeah, but so what?"
The one really poor chapter was where he tried to set the seals and trumpets in the right order. It was confusing. The chart, which he felt would solve the confusion, (despite his telling us he hates charts as they are so confusing) didn't clear this chapter up and added more questions.
The author is able to explain in detail and still keep it simple enough for anyone to comprehend.
Not only has he written an excellent apologetic of the rapture and return of Christ, but he introduces fresh insight and backs everything with scripture.
No matter what position you hold on rapture timing, you are guaranteed to learn something.
This is definitely the number one book you want to add to your latter days reading list!
