Premillennialists continue to be divided on the question of the rapture of the church. Will it occur before, in the middle of, or after the tribulation? Drs. Feinburg (pre-tribulation), Archer (mid-tribulation), and Moo (post-tribulation) present their respective positions. They also critique each other's positions, and they provide a defense in response to the critiques of their fellow authors. Firmly held and clearly stated convictions are tempered by an irenic spirit.
The interactive and fair-minded nature of the Counterpoints formal allows the reader to consider the strengths and weaknesses of each view and draw informed, personal conclusions.
Three Views on the Rapture is introduced by Richard Reiter's helpful essay tracing the history of this debate in American evangelicalism.
