I highly recommend Who Will Be Left Behind and When? for all who love the Word of God... -- Gary Vaterlaus, Sola Scriptura Ministries

Start by never taking one or two verses and acepting mindlessly any premise. Now consider, "It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet sounds." If the student would go to the start of the chapter he/she would easily discover that this is about the "resurrection" and dead bodies must be raised FIRST before those who haven't died get changed into their immortal bodies and are gathered to be forever with the LORD. Read it again and it is obvious the discussion is about the resurrection, which must happen on the last day.
Dead bodies will NOT get their new bodies until the last day. This is confirmed four (4) times in John 6:39, 40, 44 and 54. So when the saints come out of the ground and then those that haven't died get changed in a blink of an eye it must be the LAST DAY.
Not only that, but both the saints and the lost will be raised on the last day in the same hour. See John 5:28. This tracks with our LORD's parable of the wheat and the tares, "Just as the weeds are sorted out and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the world...Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Father's Kingdom." Matthew 13:40-43.
Read the book, better yet, study the Word of God to show youself approved.
As documented in the refutation, Bussard is a follower of a "Prewrath Rapture" doctrine that has been promoted over the last few years by heretics such as Van Kampen, Rosenthal, Nigro, Salerno, et al.
All of these heretics believe that the body of Christ (i.e. the Church) will be punished by enduring the wrath of the Great Tribulation.
Their central error is the failure to follow the apostle Paul's admonition to "rightly divide the word of truth".
Dave touches sufficiently on all of the key scriptures and doctrinal issues which underlie pre-wrath theology, while making sure that the main tenets of pretribulationism are exposed for the fallacies that they are. The author stands up boldly as one voice in the face of a large crowd of opposition, and presents bible truth on this subject without apology. And he does it all with a very humble, balanced demeanor which stands in striking contrast to the vitriol that characterized Tim LaHaye's pretrib "classic," Rapture Under Attack.
Dave's approach is to take the key passages of scripture which address the occurrence and timing of the rapture, and walk through them from the prophets to Revelation, paying as much attention to each as is warranted. I particularly liked chapter 8, "Putting It All Together," which links all of these essential verses into a single flowing narrative. I was impressed! I was also challenged to reconsider the scriptural basis for mainstream teachings on the so-called "one world government."
The best part, of course, was the final chapter that described what it will be like for those Christians who endure persecution under the Antichrist to look up and see the signs in the sun, moon and stars, and to know that their day of redemption has finally arrived. We hear much in pretrib teachings about so-called "tribulation saints." Well, if we turn out to be the generation that is raptured, WE will be the tribulation saints, because we will NOT be raptured out before the start of the 70th week. Dave does a great job of driving this point home, and I commend this book to the reading of every believer who wants a better understanding of bible prophecy.
