Michael Copple has accumulated more than 2,000 parachute jumps, 15 hours of freefall, and experienced four main parachute malfunctions. Copple’s time in the sky has afforded him a unique perspective. Now he spends his time moderating Bible studies and preaching.

In “Digging Deeper into the Revelation of Jesus Christ: A Study Guide (NKJV),” Copple provides a study guide for the Book of Revelation in the Bible.

“This book presents an explanation of the Book of Revelation,” Copple said, “where God saves the Church Age believers by taking them out of this world, instantaneously (traditionally called “The Rapture”) just prior to the deception and violence of the seven-year “Tribulation.”

Copple served 26 years in the US Air Force, nine of which were with the Air Force Academy Wings of Blue Parachute Team. He achieved the highest enlisted rank of Chief Master Sergeant and then spent 16 years as a trainer, technical writer, and service engineer with a semiconductor company, traveling the world. He published another book, “Calling from the Sky,” released in 2016, which is being republished with WestBow Press and will be available October 2019.

“I was inspired to work on this study guide by a verse in Revelation,” Copple said. “‘Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near,’ Rev. 1:3.”
