No one will be 'Left Behind'

Its about time that people like Barbara R. Rossing, who are blessedly brave enough to speak against this false and abusive theology of last things. This is good and challenging reading for people who like me have struggled with the nature of such a violent, discriminating and triumphlist eschatology that has yoked so many Evangelical Christians since it was formally articulated by Darby and Scofield. This is a welcomed publication that in a way helps ease out my cringing whenever I'd see people somewhat rejoicing over global catastrophe because they see it as signs of the times, without ever thinking that the victims of those catastrophes are people just like them.
