THE RAPTURE: An Introduction to the Blessed Hope of the Church
(Book) by Don Stewart
When will the Rapture of the Church take place? At some future time, believers in Jesus Christ will be caught up to meet Him in the air when the Lord descends from heaven. Those who have died in Christ will be raised at that time. This is what the Bible says will take place. However, Christians are divided as to exactly when this will happen. In The Rapture, Don Stewart looks at the various views about the timing of the Rapture. He presents the strengths and weaknesses of each position and then concludes that the pre-tribulation Rapture view best explains all of the facts. He answers questiong such as: Why should we study the subject of the Rapture? What are the best arguments for each rapture position? How should we live in light of the coming of the Lord? This is an important book for all those who seek to understand what the Scripture has to say about the subject of the Rapture. Paperback, 198 pages.

THE SECOND COMING, PRETERISM, AND THE BOOK OF REVELATION
(DVD) by Charlie Campbell
Preterism is the view that the events spoken about in Matthew 24 and the Book of Revelation have been largely or completely fulfilled in the events leading up to and surrounding the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in A.D. 70. Preterism (from the Latin word for past) is growing in popularity. Could this view be valid? What did the early church think about these passages (Matt. 24 and the Book of Revelation)? In this hour long teaching, Charlie Campbell examines the preterist position, the verses often cited to support their view, and gives numerous reasons why preterism should be rejected as an incorrect understanding of Bible prophecy. 60 minutes.
