Worthy to Escape: Why All Believers Will Not Be Raptured Before the Tribulation
Many Christians base their understanding of the end times on the popular pretribulation rapture view. They expect that Jesus will rescue them "just-intime" before the tribulations of the Antichrist. However, few people realize that every single biblical promise of being raptured at that time is conditional on personal spiritual readiness. Eminent Christian leaders such as A.B. Simpson, founder of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, as well as Hudson Taylor, founder of the China Inland Mission, first taught this biblical perspective of a conditional rapture.
"Worthy to Escape makes for a thoroughly intriguing read! It is rare for Christians to apply the Hebraic traditions regarding marriage to the rapture. That and the book's strong focus on spiritual intimacy set it apart from the majority of end times writings."
"Everyone should become familiar with the fi rst fruits rapture. I highly recommend this book!"
"Any student of eschatology needs to read this book and consider its insights. Bible colleges and seminaries should use it as a reference work and make it required reading."

Well written, detailed to a fault, however, given their exceptional, and in the case of Mr. Zenz, Ivy League academic background these men can make complex subject matter understandable. More to come after I finish. Read full review
I have for a long time harbored doubts about the pretribulation belief that every single believer, regardless of their spiritual state and of their willingness to "watch," will be raptured before the tribulation. Somehow, that just never seemed right. For me, it plainly contradicted the scriptural exhortations to be ready and to watch.
As I read this book, I had a real "wow" moment. Finally, someone had put into words what I had been suspecting all along. Regardless of what you believe about the end times, I can only recommend that you examine this book's scriptural arguments. The authors do a great job building their arguments from a sound scriptural presentation. Let God's Word speak to you in a fresh way. I consider "Worthy to Escape" to be a must read book!
