Now completely revised and enlarged, using quotations from the New International Version -- John F. Walvoord's classic work on the Rapture! The Rapture Question examines the four views of the church's role in the tribulation: Partial Rapturism, Pretribulationism, Midtribulationism, and Posttribulationism, with the revised edition particularly discussing the current debate between pretribulationism and posttribulationism. In updating his work, the author also added treatments on the Rapture in the Gospels, in 1 Thessalonians 4, in 1 Thessalonians 5, in 2 Thessalonians, in 1 Corinthians, and in Revelation. A bibliography of current literature plus general and Scripture indexes are included.

Readers whose nature demands that they read on all sides of an issue will be interested in an article on the web entitled "Walvoord's Posttrib Varieties - Plus." (I found it on Google.) The late Dr. John Walvoord is, of course, the author of "The Rapture Question" and unfortunately was influenced by a layman named R. A. Huebner who admitted that he had never attended college, or seminary, or even a Bible school! Yet, for some reason, he has been almost a ghostwriter for Walvoord, Ryrie, Ice and other pretrib rapture diehards and desperados. Yes, read on all side of the rapture issue before uttering, "This is my final answer." Irv
