Will anyone be left behind? You might think so, if you’ve read LaHay and Jenkins’ Left Behind series. You can be convinced that the Bible specifically teaches that in the end times, Christians will be rescued from a terrible 7 year tribulation period while unbelievers will remain on earth to be subjected to countless horrors at the hands of the antichrist. Gary DeMar takes a critical look at the theology behind this pop fiction series and challenges readers to consider a different interpretation. With confidence based on years of biblical study, DeMar carefully examines 11 major components of the pre-tribulation rapture theology and offers clear, convincing alternatives to the interpretations of Bible prophecy presented in the Left Behind series. What difference does it make what we believe about the end times anyway? DeMar addresses that question as well, showing how our point of view regarding the end times prophecies affects the way we live each day. In addition, DeMar answers skeptics who use failed end-times predictions as reasons to discredit the Bible, Jesus and Christianity! Giving a different perspective on the end times, this approach to the Bible could revolutionize the life and effectiveness of the Church today. (This is a revised and much expanded version of the out of print End Times Fiction written by DeMar.)
