It is my hope that readers will gain the faith that will be necessary to discern and respond to the Word at the proper time

As the world grows nearer to the Lord’s literal return, it is critical to be exposed to the light of God’s Word. The fact of the matter is, although this is the generation that will see the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, many people are frighteningly unprepared for it. That is why author William B. Whalen, Sr., penned Wake Up: A Layman’s Look at End-Time Events ($10.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-642-7), a new title from Xulon Press that will wake people up to the biblical order of events concerning the end times. Within the pages of this book, the author contends with and exposes what he believes to be one of the most deceptive winds of doctrine to ever blow through the body of Christ—the pre-tribulation rapture—and gives clear, specific end-time directions to the church.
“It is my hope that readers will gain the faith that will be necessary to discern and respond to the Word at the proper time,” the author says. “I hope it is newsworthy to the people who have kept up with all the revelations that have been revealed to the body of Christ over the Last 80 years, and inspire those who need to wake up and catch up.”
As a young Christian, Whalen was fascinated by the book of Revelation and stories of the end times. After much confusion and frustration, he did the same as many others and began to read books on the subject. This only led to more confusion, as the popular books didn’t seem to line up with Scripture. As he sought the Lord for an answer as to why this was, he believes He said, “Even my disciples didn’t recognize Me until I opened their eyes.” These words were what spurred him to pen this book in the hope that he might help “wake up” other Christians laboring under this false belief of the pre-tribulation rapture before it is too late.
Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 7,000 titles published to date.
