Catholic Scripture Study International: Will Catholics Be 'Left Behind'?

by ,

Catholic Scripture Study International 2005–2007

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Includes five lessons with suggested responses and commentary on the theologies and relevant biblical texts.

Carl Olson grew up with many misconceptions about the “end times.” This study is a thorough critique of the popular notion of the “Rapture”—the belief that Christians will be removed from earth prior to a time of Tribulation and the Second Coming. It examines the theological, historical, and biblical basis for premillennial dispensationalism, the belief system based around the Rapture, and popularized in the best-selling Left Behind books.

In Logos, these Catholic Scripture Study International studies work even smarter. See Scripture, Catechism, and Church document references appear on mouseover, and instantly find what other authors in your library have to say on the topic. Take notes and share them with your small group on Faithlife, or lead your small group straight from the instructional guide always accessible on your tablet, smart phone, or laptop.

This program covers all the desirable bases—thorough textual analysis and exegesis, stimulating questions to engage the individual subscriber, and direct and faithful connections of what has been studied to the Catechism, and to the magisterial writings of the Church. I can easily assure any pastor, that this program will not only enhance the spiritual lives of your people individually, but also the level of spiritual vitality of your parish.
