Description - The Rapture Exposed by Barbara Rossing
The idea of The Rapturethe return of Christ to rescue and deliver Christians off the earthis an extremely popular interpretation of the Bibles Book of Revelation and a jumping-off point for the best-selling Left Behind series of books. This interpretation, based on a psychology of fear and destruction, guides the daily acts of thousands if not millions of people worldwide. In The Rapture Exposed, Barbara Rossing argues that this script for the worlds future is nothing more than a disingenuous distortion of the Bible. The truth, Rossing argues, is that Revelation offers a vision of Gods healing love for the world. The Rapture Exposed reclaims Christianity from fundamentalists destructive reading of the biblical story and back into Gods beloved community.
