The day of the Lord is the central theme of the Bible’s prophetic teaching, yet it often receives a superficial treatment by prophetic teachers. This work, occasioned by the novel rapture theory of Robert Van Kampen and Marvin Rosenthal, goes a long way to balance the scales. It goes straight to the heart of their pre-wrath rapture theory, their own peculiar location and understanding of the day of the Lord, and demonstrates that it is unsound. Then it demonstrates that the true force of the promise in Revelation 3:10 is to keep from the hour of trial that the first five seals are indeed divinely imposed visitations and trials, and that the church must, therefore, be raptured before any of the events of the seventieth week transpire.

This fascinating study is the most thorough answer to the pre-wrath rapture theory to appear to date. Brainard has done the painstaking work of answering every one of the major arguments presented by Rosenthal and Van Kampen in their books. This book is readable, its logic clear, its arguments sound, and it’s conclusions convincing.

    We use this book to answer the “prewrath” advocates. We really like Lee’s book because of its helpful attention and clarification on “the Day of the Lord” in the old Testament prophecies. The followers of Marv Rosenthal’s eccentric doctrine do not like this book. But the serious Bible student will find it to be sound and edifying.

    This is the book we use in answering Van Kampen & Rosenthal’s eccentric mid-tribulation theory. We really like Lee’s book because of its helpful attention and clarification on “the Day of the Lord” in the old Testament prophecies. The Prewrath clique don’t like Lee Brainard’s book. It is persuasive and edifying.

    Weighty books deserve a careful and studious reading. THE PRE-WRATH RATPURE ANSWERED is certainly worthy of such advice. This was not written as a general treatise on Biblical prophecy, but to answer the arguments and assertions of the advocates of the “Pre-Wrath Rapture”. Though in the course of the book, he sets forth the foundational doctrines of prophecy as taught the Old Testament and New Testament. In this book Mr. Brainard applies his thorough knowledge of Bible prophecy, a deep and practical knowledge of ancient Greek, and as well as insightful logic.

    The right appraisal of the Day of the Lord is key to understanding Bible prophecy. On that subject alone, Mr. Brainard’s book is best exposition I have found on the subject. He investigates each of the Day of the Lord passages in the OT and NT, identifies their salient features, then examines their implications on the prophetic scheme of the Bible. His careful examination of the OT is a feature of this book that many prophecy teachers could learn from.

    Though the subject matter is deep, his writing style is not stuffy or academic. He demonstrates a practical understanding that Biblical prophecy holds a moral message for the reader, not a mere intellectual one. These practical remarks align themselves with the Bible’s prophetic message.

    Mr Brainard has a deep and practical knowledge of ancient Greek. He answers the assertions of the Pre-Wrath Rapture advocates, not with gimmicks and linguistic slight-of-hand, but with facts and the careful examinations of the words and phrases in question. From his many quotes from the Greek of the New Testament, Lexicons, the Septuagint, ancient history, and church fathers, he ably shows the reader the obvious facts of the matter. In fact, his thorough exposition of Greek (and especially correcting his opponents erroneous ideas) are an instructive case study in the use (and abuse) of New Testament Greek.

    I would recommend this book to any serious student of Bible prophecy.
