Item Description...
Will there be a Rapture? How will we know the Antichrist? Can we know when the end of the world will be? What does the Bible really say about these things? In the past ten years, few books of any variety have shown the kind of popularity and stirred the kind of controversy that have surrounded the Left Behind series of apocalyptic novels. The series has sold more than 62 million copies of its various books for adults, youth, and children, as well as been launched into a series of popular movies. This series about the end times has been a pervasive influence in our churches and in our culture. But what does the Bible really have to say about the end times? James M. Efird, a noted scholar of the Bible and apocalyptic literature, helps us explore the scriptural texts to answer the many questions raised by the series. He also guides us through an enlightening look at the peculiar history behind the books. Ideal for use by individuals or study groups curious about the end times, Left Behind? What the Bible Really Says about the End Times contains a helpful series of questions for reflection and study after each chapter

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent resource on the Rapture for those hoping to be left behind  Jun 27, 2008
Though I count myself as a devoted Christian, Bible student and interested in all things religious, the "Rapture" leaves me decidedly unecstatic and still willing to meet Christ anywhere He chooses, not just midway in the air on a date to be announced. When asked, by certain among the believers, if I'm afraid to be left behind on Judgement day when the chosen elect will be carried away to heaven, my answer is definitely 'yes' if that's where God would like me to be. This has earned me hostile tongue-lashings in some quarters. However, there are also those who don't know anything about the subject, want to learn more and ask me to recommend something. I recommend this book. The author is a seasoned professor, speaker and author, able to pack complex theological contructs into succinct, understandable prose. If the reader is looking for something to validate the Rapturist view, this is not the book for the job. For a concise history, theological explanation, and Biblically-based refutation of same, buy this book and share. I have and will again.
What Scripture Says  Feb 1, 2008
This book presents a clear and concise statement about the rapture, the antichrist, and the millennium. The Epilogue is a summary that many bible students need to read. In a time of so many poor interpretations, Dr. Efird presents what the scripture says. I have been in his class room and the book is as close as can be to hearing him speak.
Good Introductory Study  Dec 8, 2007
This little book is meant to be an introductory critique to popular eschatology or "end-times views" as they have come to be known. Efird divides his book into two basic sections: historical and theological. He examines both dispensationalism and darbyism in their historical context, then examines what he considers to be the three key themes in popular eschatology--the Millennium, the Antichrist, and the Rapture. The book does not assume any prior exposure to biblical studies and is good to use as a starting place.

The book does suffer from its brevity. While I'm certain he has more to say than what he actually said, there are times when he could have elaborated a bit more and at certain points you are not certain if he is disproving a particular view or rather just asserting his own without mention.

A solid book, all in all.
