    One thought on “Three Views on the Rapture: Pre; Mid; or Post-Tribulation”

    1. Three premillennialists arguing over the time of the rapture. Pretty excited to sell this back for some money.

    2. Interesting and thought-provoking. This book provides the basics to the three major theories about the Rapture of the church. No matter which view you now hold, you may find yourself changing your long-held beliefs after reading this book.

    3. The first section by Feinberg is probably the most convincing. Moo's argument is good for Post-trib. The middle section is largely irrelevant today, as Archer's position has been pretty well supplanted by the pre wrath view in the newer edition of this volume. The historical essay which begins the book is worth the price of the book for anyone interested in the history of dispensationalism, whether they agree with the theology or not.

    4. Wow, eschatology is always a tough subject as is this book. One of the main reasons that I bought this book is that three professors from the same seminary Trinity Evangelical Seminary, all propose different viewpoints on when the rapture will take place. ( pre-trib --Paul Feinberg, mid-trib --Gleason Archer and post-trib --Douglass Moo) They all respect each other and each other's viewpoints. They believe that the time of the rapture is not clearly defined by scripture; hence, they are supporti [...]

    5. Had to read this for a class on eschatology. Not my first choice for a book on this subject, but it was interesting reading the different views on the rapture. Being a partial preterist, I'm not convinced any of these views are correct since all of them assumed a futurist and premill approach to eschatology. Although Moo's post-trib argument was the most cogent, in my opinion.

    6. A good book to read together with Robert g. grouse’s the meaning of the millennium. They are essentially of the same scholarly style – an article for a particular position followed by responding articles from the other two. (3 positions – pre-trib, mid-trib and post-trib).

    7. Archer fascinates me he knew better than to be premill and even in that he knew better than to engage a book like this This was required reading during my seminary days nowadays, I am inclined to responds to books like this as a waste of perfectly good paper.
