Product Description

This powerful and timely book, written by a former Fundamentalist, is a thorough critique of the popular Fundamentalist notion of the Rapturethe 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 and taught by Bible prophecy writers Tim LaHaye, Hal Lindsey, Jack Van Impe, and many others.

Written for both the lay person and the serious student, this book combines an engaging, popular approach with detailed footnotes and exhaustive research. Beginning with the big picture, it focuses first on key concepts such as eschatology, the Parousia, and the relationship between the Kingdom and the Church. It then examines the Book of Revelation, providing insights into the nature and purpose of that difficult, final book of the Bible. Another chapter looks at the concept of the millennium and how it has been understood by various Christians over the centuries. Olson then shows how Left Behind creator LaHaye¹Ÿés many works on Bible prophecy are filled with attacks on Catholicism, and often rely on sensationalism, shaky scholarship, and subjective interpretations of Scripture

Olson, a former dispensationalist who now edits Envoy magazine, also presents a history of apocalyptic belief and theology, beginning with the Early Church Fathers and including the Montanists, St. Augustine, Joachim of Fiore, the Protestant Reformers, and the American Puritans. He shows how John Nelson Darby, an ex-Anglican priest, developed the premillennial dispensationalist system, which hinges on the Rapture, in the 1830s and how Darby relied upon faulty assumptions about Jesus Christ, the Church, and the Bible.

The second part of the book, A Catholic Critique of Dispensationalism, focuses on three important topics: the relationship between Israel, the Church, and the Kingdom; the interpretation of Scripture; and the nature of the Rapture event. Filled with a wealth of information drawn from both Protestant and Catholic sources, this section provides a complete rebuttal to the premillennial dispensationalist system and the left behind theology. The book concludes with a reflection on the Catholic understanding of the end times, salvation history, and the final judgement. Glossaries of key persons and terms are also included.

A strong, but fair, critique of a dangerous and popular belief, Will Catholics Be Left Behind? provides Catholics and Protestants, lay people and clergy, and students and scholars with important answers and information about the roots and meaning of the Rapture.

Millions of Americans believe the Lord will snatch them up any day now, leaving the rest of us to the horrors of a seven-year tribulation. The hitch is that the ¹ŸÉRapture¹Ÿé has no pedigree. As Carl Olson shows, no Catholic or Protestant believed in it prior to the nineteenth century. It is an authentic Fundamentalist ¹ŸÉinvention¹Ÿé.

Karl Keating, Author, Catholicism and Fundamentalism

In this extraordinary book, Carl Olson uses a surgeon¹scalpel to cut through the mass of confusion that dominates contemporary reflection on the Last Things. Achieving far more than a refutation of millennialist errors and other disordered apocalyptic theories, he illumines the Church¹Ÿés majestic vision of time and eternity and demonstrates that Jesus Christ is the Lord of History and its end.

Michael O'Brien, Author, Father Elijah

End times fervor continues to ignite Christians in the twenty-first century. Prophecy preachers and Rapture proponents abound. Where did these new ideas come from? How did they become so popular? Are Catholics being left behind or are they actually way ahead? Olson sorts out the complicated, researches the history and presents it clearly and simply. He has done us all a great service, not Catholics only, but all Christians.

Steve Ray, Author, Upon This Rock

Carl Olson has joined personal experience with extensive research to provide an in-depth examination of today¹ ŸÉprophecy preachers¹Ÿé and the confused, confusing notions they have packaged as entertainment for an often-unsuspecting audience.

Paul Thigpen, Ph.D., Author, The Rapture Trap

What a wonderful book on millennial movements. Olson¹ book will help people think carefully through the decisions to take part in millennial movements rather than allow emotional appeals to determine their decisions. As an extra benefit, Olson¹ research highlights important and frequently little know data about millennial thoughts.

Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J.

Published by Roman Catholic Books

Sale Price: $299.95
Order Here

At long last, available again And possible only with the gracious permission of Cardinal John J. O'Connor of New York A facsimile reproduction of the 1962 altar Missal for priests -- the most recent Vatican-approved text "In a discussion with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger recently, I asked His Eminence for his assessment of the future of the 1962 Missal as an approved liturgical book. He assured me that it was completely secure. For this reason, and because of the publishing event you see here, it is certain that the use of the 1962 Missale Romanum will increase dramatically in years to come. The remarkable increase in young priests ordained with the Pope's approval to use this Missal gives great hope by itself. But the 1962 Missale Romanum, until now, was available to most of them only rarely, from used book dealers. The availability of a fresh supply of 1962 altar Missals changes the landscape utterly." ÜMichael Davies * Smyth-sewn binding * Hand-affixed tabbed pages for the Canon in matching Cabra leather * Gold-gilded pages all round * Beautiful Belgian line art adorns the text * Weighs 5 lbs., 11 oz. * Two-color pages throughout * Quality Finch vanilla paper, with the Ordinary of the Mass in extra-thick 70-lb. stock * For maximum protection, shrink-wrapped and custom packaged as they come off the press * Rich red leather covers, Cabra bonded -- the sturdiest, imported from Germany "I invite the bishops also, fraternally, to understand and to have a renewed pastoral attention for the faithful attached to the old rite...." ÜPope John Paul II, October 26, 1998
