The rapture is a controversial subject. Since scholars cannot agree on the timing of the rapture, how can we know what to believe? Is the rapture just "pie in the sky" theology? Here to clarify things is veteran author Paula Martin's The Pretrib Rapture Choreographed in the Gospels (paperback, 978-1-60477-777-2), an oft-surprising, groundbreaking book that reveals the answer from none other than Jesus Himself. After studying Jesus' end-time discourses for 30 years, the author decided it was time to fulfill her desire to see believers secure in the answers Jesus gave us concerning His return.
While we in the church have been arguing amongst ourselves about the timing of the rapture, some no longer look for it. Others rip the spirit from the imminent return of the Lord, teaching that He only returns at the end of human history. The Pretrib Rapture Choreographed in the Gospels can resolve doubt, bring back hope, and instill confidence in the pretrib rapture.
Martin, who has been described as a "penetrating thinker," has put together a biblically-based response to the lack of clarity about end-time events, and she hopes it will instill readers with a confident hope for the future. Says the author, "While Paul's statements are sufficient to map out the doctrine, we must add Jesus' choreographed pictures to show the proof for a pretrib rapture. (Readers will receive) a confident hope of a pretrib rapture. As they face the storms of life, they need a confident hope, not a confused or lost one."
Paula Martin is the author of The Simplicity of Faith.
