Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not what it claims to be and otherwise misleading  Jan 27, 2007
My biggest complaint is simply that LaHaye misleads. Forget which side of the issue you are on. The problem here is that LaHaye says he will present both sides and doesn't. He presents an extremely biased view of pre-Trib rature and ignores many areguments against it. His reasoning is circular and he makes many leaps of logic without support. I happen to lean toward pre-Trib and would like to honestly evaluate all the arguements. It is very complicated and no one can sum it all up conclusively in one book, or a few short verses.
My other complaint is that I ordered this book thinking it was about learning how to understand Bible prophecy. This book is presented entirely as a pre-Trib apologetic. Prophecy in general is ignored and principles on interpretting it are only presented if they support pre-Trib.
It also saddens me to see some of the reviews where the reviewer appears to be depending on this book, or at least on only on pre-Trib writings for his information. Please don't read this book alone. Watch out for the leaps that aren't supported. LaHaye is one of the spokesman for "Left Behind" theology. He wrote the fictional series that put it all together and I find it all to be too easy and too one sided.
Just a terrible book not only on the subject but in every way  Jan 10, 2007
This book is so bad on so many levels that it is difficult to know where to begin. Tim LaHaye claims that what makes this book different is that rather than attempt to persuade the reader regarding a particular interpretation of prophecy, this work "is to help you analyze the prophetic passages of [the bible] such a way that you can come to your own conclusions." This is a particularly disingenuous and specious claim as the entire book is a rather ponderous and poorly executed defense of Pre-Trib dispensationalism.

Dr. LaHaye is a gifted wordsmith and the well crafted text hides its lack of scholarship, or at least the rigor of supporting a clear theological position with footnotes and references. To be fair this book is written for a consumer audience and therefore does not apply, nor use, the same academic standards of textbooks. However the thinly veiled attempt to make the Pre-Trib Rapture position the normal understanding of believers while claiming an objective and studious methodology was OFFENSIVE. The book exhausts the reader by the amount of work expected by the Dr. LaHaye, such as looking up over 100 scriptures.

Frankly it is almost impossible to list all of the inconsistencies, theological leaps and circular logic of the text. Dr. LaHaye insists on a literal interpretation of the bible but then repeatedly uses various elements symbolically to support his positions. Dr. LaHaye, for example is perfectly comfortable allegorizing Jesus speaking to the churches at the time of the Apostolic age in the beginning of book of Revelation as also referring to `Church Ages.' Dr. LaHaye even see's John's translation into the heavenlies where he views Revelation's events as a "symbol of the church when she is raptured to be with Christ `in the air.'"

To explain why the rapture, especially a Pre-Trib rapture, is not found in the Olivet Discourse, Dr. LaHaye makes the incredulous theological leap that Jesus' view was on Israel at the end age without any textual support, i.e. biblical support. Are we to believe that Jesus (the Incarnate Son of God, member of the God head the Christ) was intellectually and prophetically limited, perhaps even wrong? The text is ripe with such speculations foisted upon the reader as competent biblical exegesis. Dr. Hayford, for example sees the rider of Revelation 6:2 as possibly Jesus whereas Dr. LaHaye says it is Satan. While this may seem like a minor point, in Dr. Hayford's book, one that doesn't purport itself to be a independent study program, admits to various interpretations of Revelation 6:2 whereas Dr. LaHaye simply asserts his position. Dr. LaHaye even speculates on the characteristics of believer's new resurrected bodies with zero biblical information. These theological jumps are worthy of the Nemo, a character in the popular film "The Matrix" but not of serious biblical scholars.

Dr. LaHaye acknowledges that prophecy is understood differently but repeatedly insists that his understanding is the only logical one. Of course this is not explicitly stated but can inferred by the rather heavy handed statements such as, "when the 300-plus Bible references to the Second Coming are carefully examined, it becomes clear that there are two phases to Christ's return." Apparently those who don't agree are not careful about their bible studies. The same stridency used in the advocating of the Pre-Trib position is used in defense of Pre-Trib's indispensable foundation: Premillennialism and Dispensationalism. Such statements as "in the twentieth century, premillennialism become the dominant view of the Bible-believing church..." is not only antidotal and unverifiable but insinuates that not having such a position makes the church `non-bible believing." Those who disagree are characterized as "small but noisy" cabal against a doctrine that can be traced back to the Apostles, another false and misleading statement not proven by facts or the bible.

What is presented as a biblical world-view is clearly more informed by C.I. Scofield, The Fundamentalist Movement, and Dallas Theological Seminary who Dr. LaHaye endorses in this text, than an independent reading of the bible. It is not that such ideas are right or wrong, the lamentable idea however is that rather than presenting a guide, such as Dr. Gordon Fee's text, New Testament Exegesis, which is how Dr. LaHaye characterizes and promotes his book, he has written a polemic and apologetical work in strident advocacy of Pre-Tribulation, Dispensationalism, and Premillennialism.

If you really want to learn something about the book of Revelation I highly recommend NICNT's commentary on the book by Dr. Mounce, or Dr. Hayford's book `E Quake.' For an actual scholarly and logical approach that agrees with the Pre-Trib Rapture position (and Dispensationalism) a much much better read would be Dr. Pentecost's work "Things to Come." Dr. Pentecost is no less immodest than Dr. LaHaye but at least you don't have to write over half the book yourself. Blessings...
Why continue to be deceived...  Jun 26, 2006
Tim LaHaye, Jerry Jenkins, and others in the Pre-Trib circle, such as Ed Hindson, Tommy Ice, Chuck Missler, etc., continue to put forth the same deceptions that Hal Lindsey popularized decades ago. The notion of a pre-tribulation rapture is foreign to scripture, it is foreign to the teachings of the early Church, and it is grooming the Church for destruction through ignorance and lack of preparation for what is really coming. These men are novices and not prophecy "experts" or "scholars" by any stretch of the imagination; they are those who tickle the ears of gullible Christians. Why continue to be deceived? Tim Cohen, in his excellent book, "The AntiChrist and a Cup of Tea," provides biblically sound and testable evidence to show that the coming AntiChrist is known NOW. Not only that, the same author (Tim Cohen) has now put out the strongest presentation on the whole issue of the rapture EVER offered to the saints of God in Christ: "The REAL Rapture". If you really want to know the truth about the timing of the coming rapture, then you need to hear Tim Cohen's "The REAL Rapture" (based on a volume in his forthcoming "Messiah, History, and the Tribulation Period" series (see Prophecy House's web site, prophecyhouse dot com, for details on these items).
This book fails to address the clear words of Jesus Christ concerning "the last day" in John 6:39-40; John 12:48 and John 5:28-29 which are the basis of the historical view on this subject.

We interpret the unclear verses of the Bible by the clear ones.

Jesus says: "Everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life and I will raise him up at the last day"
(John 6:40).

"At the last day" - not 7 or 1007 years before the last day as Lahaye believes.

Jesus says: "There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words. That very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day." (John 12:48)

Lahaye needs to accept the very words of Jesus Christ when He says "at the last day."

Jesus says: "The hour is coming when all who are in the graves will hear my voice and come out. Those who have done good will rise to live and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned." (John 5:28-29)

Lahaye changes the words of Jesus and tries to insert 1000 or 1007 years between Jesus' call and ignores the word "all".

See 2 Peter 3:10-13 for a description of the last day. The rest of the Bible agrees with Jesus Christ not Lahaye.

Very Helpful  Jun 29, 2005
I teach Jr. High sunday school. When I asked them what they wanted to study they told me "the end times." When I realized they were serious I told them I would spend this summer studying bible prophecy. This was one of the books that I got as a resource and I have found it to be very helpful! It lets you decide your own conclusions based on scripture rather then just settling for someone elses opinion. It is a workbook style book which was one of the reasons I was drawn to it. Because it is a workbook it does take more then just reading to get the most out of it!
