Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Religion: general

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.
