The Rapture ExposedeBook - 2007
The idea of ?The Rapture”?the return of Christ to rescue and deliver Christians off the earth?is an extremely popular interpretation of the Bible?s Book of Revelation and a jumping-off point for the best-selling ?Left Behind” series of books. This interpretation, based on a psychology of fear and destruction, guides the daily acts of thousands if not millions of people worldwide. In The Rapture Exposed , Barbara Rossing argues that this script for the world?s future is nothing more than a disingenuous distortion of the Bible. The truth, Rossing argues, is that Revelation offers a vision of God?s healing love for the world. The Rapture Exposed reclaims Christianity from fundamentalists? destructive reading of the biblical story and back into God?s beloved community.
