Description

Product Description

Author David Currie grew up conviced that one day all true Christians will suddenly be snatched up to heaven. The unfortunate souls left behind by this "rapture" will endure seven horrible years of tribulation, at the end of which Christ will return to earth for a glorious thousand-year reign.

Today, millions accept this end-times theology, assuming as Currie did that the Bible clearly teaches it. Many plan their lives around it. But, after studying Scripturefor decades, Currie has come to see that accepting the Bible means rejecting the rapture.

In this remarkable book the world''s most careful and thorough scriptural study of the rapture Currie demonstrates why. He considers all the relevant verses ( there are hundreds!) and examines them in the light of ancient history, the writings of the earliest Christians, and the claims of the rapturist theologians. With painstaking thoroughness, he unlocks the meaings of key biblical prophecies that culminate in Christ''s Messianic Kingdom including those verses in Daniel, Matthew, and Revelation that rapturists turn to most.

Marshaling evidence as startling as it is compelling, Currie argues that these prophecies of war and tribulation don''t point to some still-unrealized apocalyptic future. Rather, most of them were fulfilled long ago: the spiritual, priestly Kingdom prefigured in the Old Testament was inaugurated on Calvary, consumated in 70 A.D. with the destruction of the Temple, and continues to exist today...the Catholic Church!

That surprise you. Yet, as Currie shows, it''s the only conclusion that fits all the scriptural and historical evidence.

Rapture: The End-Times Error that Leaves the Bible Behind makes Scripture, prophecy, and history come alive; and it demonstrates that if you open your Bible, you''ll find that God''s plan for the future of the world is not filled with darkness and disaster, but with light, mercy, and hope.

From the Back Cover

Author David Currie grew up convinced that one day all true Christians will suddenly be snatched up to heaven. The unfortunate souls left behind by this "rapture" will endure seven horrible years of tribulation, at the end of which Christ will return to earth for a glorious thousand-year reign.

Today, millions of Christians accept this end-times theology, assuming as Currie did -- that the Bible clearly teaches it. Many plan their whole lives around it. But, after studying Scripture for decades, Currie has come to see that if you accept the Bible, you have to reject the rapture.

In these remarkable pages which constitute the world''s most careful and thorough scriptural study of the rapture Currie demonstrates why. He considers all the relevant verses (and there are hundreds!) and examines them in the light of ancient history, the writings of the earliest Christians, and the claims of rapturist theologians. With painstaking thoroughness, he unlocks the meanings of the key biblical prophecies that culminate in Christ''s Messianic Kingdom including those verses in Daniel, Matthew, and Revelation that rapturists turn to most.

Marshalling evidence that''s as startling as it is compelling, Currie argues that these prophecies of war and tribulation don''t point to some still-unrealized apocalyptic future. Rather, most of them were fulfilled long ago: the spiritual, priestly Kingdom prefigured in the Old Testament was inaugurated on Calvary, consummated in 70 A.D. with the destruction of the Temple, and continues to exist today . . . in the Catholic Church! That may surprise you. Yet, shows Currie, it''s the only conclusion that fits all the scriptural and historical evidence.

Rapture: The End-Times Error That Leaves the Bible Behind makes Scripture, prophecy, and history come alive; and it demonstrates that if you open your Bible, you''ll find that God''s plan for the future of the world is not filled with darkness and disaster, but with light, mercy, and hope.

The credibility of the author and especially the proof verses directly from the Bible allow for no other conclusions, than Jesus was correct when he said it will happen within one generation and not 2,000 years later as I had believed. The Rapturist have proven they were nothing more than a man-made tradition for us Protestants. As hard as it was for me to accept this after 50 years of believing the rapture narrative, I am better off knowing the truth now. It is better to know the truth than to promote a fiction and I will not be promoting this fiction any longer. It is still hard to believe how I just accepted it from brothers without taking the time that David Currie took in order to tell the truth. This was a tough book to read, but necessary.

This book exceeded my expectation. Actually, it demolished my expectation on eschatology. He just took me back to school. I am still in shock that I have never heard anything about the historical view on eschatology in all my 30 something years of Christianity. I had heard about Daniel''s 70 weeks but nothing like what the author tell us about it. And he tell us so much about Daniel that I now know how much I was misled about this whole affair. The author brought a much needed corrective to the anemic view I had on the Olivet discourse. Jesus statements always puzzled me and I never came to have peace with it despite the many explanations I heard about his prediction that his words will occur within a generation. Now it makes PERFECT sense! The book of Revelation is no longer a book of mystery but a book revealed just as its name suggest. I recommend this book to everyone, believers and skeptics alike.

My only desire now is to hope that there is a simmilar work (monograph) written from a scholarly level. This book is truly erudite but I felt at time that there were some missing arguments to seal controversial gaps in the narrative, especially in the last section on the book of Apocalypse.

This is a book many will reject out of hand. But if they stay with it, it will open their eyes with regard to many passages'' meaning beyond that usually accepted today, particularly by evangelicals. Although the idea of the rapture and future Great Tribulation at endtimes is only 200 years old, it is now firmly entrenched in the faith of many. This book informs us of what the EARLY Church thought of that and Daniel''s "70 weeks." There is so many anti-Catholic bigotry today, so many such rants on the internet displaying total ignorance I''d the Catholic Church, that it would much good if everyone had to read and PONDER it. It would never good for their very souls to be delivered from the hatred i see in these polemice

Very well written, non-academic style. The author offers over 1,300 verses that show the flaws in the belief of "Rapture." The author was a fundamentalist preacher of the "Rapture" for years. Then he started to see the holes. So he tried to prove the belief or disprove the belief for himself. This issue and others led the author to seek out the Catholic Church. The author shows no disrespect to any persons who believe in the Rapture. He just shows why the belief is flawed. I was curious on why so many people believe in the Rapture and so many do not. In this search, I side with the author. Decide for yourself. This book will help you do it.

Good refutation of Rapturist theology but too heavy on Catholic apologetics
Reviewed in the United States on June 27, 2018
I like this book but the author seems to create the false dichotomy of Protestant/Rapturist and Catholic/amillennium. The arguments for amillenniumism are convincing, the arguments for Catholicism, pleading. Really got too annoying for more than 3 stars.

This excellent Scriptural analysis by Mr. Currie explores the most difficult and puzzling books of the Bible - Daniel and Revelation. In educated and consistent form, Mr. Currie systematically explains the background, intention and meaning of these powerful prophecies and thankfully dispels the many false interpretations of the Tribulation, the 70 weeks of Daniel and the judgments described in the Apocalypse.

Many, many people today are caught up in fear-based interpretations of these prophetic books. Misguided preachers have woven a seemingly endless variety of future prophetic systems that only create more questions than they answer. By referring to early Church teachings and the historic events of the years 0 AD - 70 AD, Mr. Currie successfully unveils the meaning of much of what Jesus referred to in Matthew chapters 24 and 25. We are given a solid explanation of these important prophecies of Jesus and the impact they had on the ancient world both during and after His time on earth.

I highly recommend this work by Mr. Currie to help the reader sort out the truth from the speculations, the meanings from the wizardry that, unfortunately, false teachers use to their advantage, especially in these disturbing times we live in. Let the reader be clear that this book explains the long-held, authoritative understanding of the topics explored and as constantly preached throughout the ages by the Catholic Church.

With Rapture, David Currie continues the recent trend of books on Christian eschatology that have placed the dispensationalist position on the defensive after years of being virtually unopposed and allowed to gather steam as a movement. At first, most scholars and apologists from traditions outside the confines of the fundamentalist movement simply did not think it was worth expending energy critiquing such an obviously distorted and unsound view. However, the explosion of interest due to the Left Behind series of novels that presuppose dispensationalism as Biblical truth necessitated a direct response from those whose churches hold to a more Scripturally and historically justified view of the Bible''s prophetic passages.

There are many excellent books that have been written recently on eschatological concerns, but often these books are primarily aimed at pointing out the errors of dispensationalism to audiences in the author''s own tradition than to convince the dispensationalists themselves. The more organic and historic approach favored by Catholics, Orthodox, Anglicans, and Reformational Protestants is likely to fall on deaf ears among dispensationalists who use Scriptural passages to create isolated propositions and then build a system around them. It is here that Currie succeeds greatly and he offers his critique in much the same user-friendly style as books written by noted prophecy pundits like Hal Lindsey and John Walvoord.

It is not surprising that Currie can speak the dispensationalists'' language. He was raised with this as an integral part of his faith and many key figures in the movement were family friends. It was no doubt a great shock to many friends and family when he left for the Catholic Church and he has stated that much of the concern was whether he would miss the rapture and be "left behind." Just as an earlier book of his (Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic) sought to answer questions concerning his conversion in a general sense, this book can be said to answer the specific objections of dispensationalists to historic Christianity in terms they can understand.

The book is divided into four sections with a group of appendices following the fourth section. First is an explanation of the rapture doctrine itself. Here he mainly relies on dispensationalist sources while giving only a hint of the devastating critique to follow. The basic presuppositions are explored and details of the system are then fleshed out. Even at this rudimentary level, the complete artificiality of the system is striking and leads one to wonder how it became so popular.

The second section lays the groundwork for what is to follow. Currie uses the weapon in his arsenal that no fundamentalist could dispute - the Bible. Here he sets the groundwork for an exegesis of the prophecies in Holy Scripture that is direct and easily understandable. The suggested "groundrules" for interpretation are pretty obvious, but what is remarkable is how frequently dispensationalists will be shown to negate a clear reading of passages in order to preserve their system.

The third section is the heart of the book as Currie presents an interpretation of the prophetic passages of Scripture that is consistent with Catholic teaching, a strain of interpretation from the early Church, and the groundrules he set earlier. The view he holds is a preterist amillennialism. He is quick to point out that this is not the only possible interpretation of the passages but it does stand as an acceptable one given the Scriptural and historical evidence - something that cannot be said of the dispensationalist view.

In successive chapters, Currie discusses the Book of Daniel, the Olivet Discourse, the prophetic passages in the New Testament Epistles, and finally the Apocalypse (or Book of Revelation). The latter chapter, spanning 150 pages, is a book in itself and could easily be redone as an introductory commentary. Throughout, Currie places the passages back in context and demonstrates the complete inconsistencey of the dispensationalist view with the Biblical data.

The fourth section of the book covers the proper response for Christians to the rapture doctrine. First he notes both the psychological and theological reasons for the rapture doctrine''s appeal. Then he deals with the things a Christian can be sure of concerning the endtimes even if one does not accept Currie''s interpretation.

The book closes with a group of useful appendices. An interesting choice was one refuting the errors of hyperpreterism. This is interesting not only because the view is often confused with orthodox preterism but because of its growing appeal. In typical fundamentalist fashion, many who have grown up in the faulty dispensationalist system have reacted by going to the other extreme and holding that the Second Coming of Christ has already occured and all Biblical prophecy has been fulfilled. Currie deals with this heresy quickly but firmly and ponts out how it springs from some of the same methodological errors as dispensationalism.

Overall, David Currie has completely exposed the futility of the dispensationalist doctrine with this book. His is one of an increasing number of critiques of the Left Behind theology now being published. Those not in agreement with Currie''s Catholic views will only find a little here to dispute (and none of it essential to his thesis) as the approach is for the most part kept to questions of eschatology and not ecclesiology. This, combined with Currie''s understanding of the dispensationalist mindset, makes Rapture an ideal book for introducing its followers to a more Biblical view of the end times.

As someone who held fast to rapturist belief, this book was an eye opener. It helped me understand key passages in Sacred Scripture that never understood before! The writer delves into Sacred Scripture with historical setting and background in mind and still remains contextual to the texts he uses. It is very well researched and developed by the writer and I strongly recommend it to both Catholics and non-Catholics alike. It will shake up all preconceptions one has regarding this matter. One should buy a copy for their fundamentalist friends too.

Hi This book and his others are more than worth the price. I come from a similar background and am a graduate of two evangelical bible colleges. I don''t have the scholarship level of David Currie but appreciate the fact the he took time to do his homework and actually look at the history, culture and language of THAT period. To many today, prophecy only means the future and all sayings of a "prophet" only refer to later times. The fact is that it really means being a messenger for God NOW, with the words and actions done, providing a meaning to those living then and yes having a possible future application. In my schools any historical references were brief and had minor impact.(when written and /or who was ruling?) History was a secular thing. David Currie said NO, history is important and has a dramatic impact on the meaning of what was written concerning the Rapture and the 2nd Coming. See here how the references to multiple crowns and heads and Jewish defeats all had valid CURRENT meanings and coded references to the many Roman rulers and the fears of naming them directly. Open you bible, read the book and review your history. Surprise, Joy and Shock awaits for many
