Understand what the Rapture is, where it came from, and what the Orthodox Church teaches—and has always taught—about it. Orthodox priest John A. Peck explores questions such as: What is the Rapture? Is it in the Bible? Who invented it and when? What does Jesus say about taking his believers out of the world? Who does the Bible say will be persecuted? What do the Fathers say about the Rapture? What does the Church specifically teach about it? Is there a Second Coming of Christ? Is there a Third Coming of Christ?
The text also includes study questions with biblical references at the end, guiding readers through Orthodox Christian teaching on an important and timely topic.
