Product Overview

The idea of ??The Rapturea????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 Behinda?? 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.
