The Pre-Trib Challenge examines the most common arguments made in support of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church.

The ultimate goal is not to tear down any particular belief, but rather to get to the truth – what does the Bible say. Many people strongly believe in one position or another. Join me in reading the Scripture to see if those thing are so More

About Anderson Murphy

As a Bible study leader for two decades, I was well-taught the pre-tribulation rapture of the church. Believing in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture in my church was nearly mandatory - almost as foundational a doctrine as the Deity of Jesus. After being confronted to defend that position by a very kind Christian friend, I discovered that my pre-trib position didn't have a strong basis in Scripture. Not only that, but I found that I really didn't have a good handle on the terminology of the end times. Although I mostly deal in writing books to help people read and understand the Bible, I have recently embarked on writing a series of books that describe what might happen to the large body of "pre-tribbers" in the event that the Rapture happens after that time. The series also explores the possibility that the very Pre-Trib belief (and all that goes along with it) might actually be the springboard to usher in the end of the world.

Regarding the timing of the Rapture, I now teach what I believe: that you should be prepared because no one knows when that event will happen.

I'm a pre-trib man myself, so this was an interesting read. I was skeptical at first, but as I read the book, Anderson made several good points. None of them were challenging enough to make me change my mind, but that's what good debate is about. It is a very simple, straightforward, respectful look at the issue of the rapture. Get a copy and read it!

Good stuff, overall. There are a few arguments made that I think could have been stated more effectively, and it is a bit of a letdown that the author (who otherwise did a very good job) did not state what his actuall position is. I was pleasently suprised, however, that he did say something similar to something I have been saying for years: I truly hope that Ibam wrong, because I do not want to go through hell on earth, but I think I am right. If I am wrong, then I will get a pleasent suprise, if not, at least I know whats coming.
