The idea of 'The Rapture'--the return of Christ at the end of times to rescue and deliver born-again Christians off the earth--is an extremely popular interpretation of the book of Revelation in the Bible and a jumping-off point for the best-selling Left Behind series of books. This interpretation guides the daily acts of 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, based on a psychology of fear. The Rapture Exposed reclaims Christianity from fundamentalists' destructive reading of the biblical story and back into God's beloved community.
'Anger drives this Lutheran seminary professor. She hates what the Left Behind series has done to popular Christian eschatology, to the Bible, to public policy, and to Christians' attitudes toward the environment. She rebuts the dispensationalists with a more deeply biblical vision,'---Christian Century.
