Can We Still Believe in the Rapture?
Can We Still Believe in the Rapture?
or Biblical Fact?
Today, the hope that all believers on earth will be “caught up” to heaven is being challenged in new waves of criticism. Is the rapture really taught in the Bible? Can we really expect Jesus to gather up His followers before the Antichrist is revealed?
In this well-reasoned and thorough defense, prophecy authors Mark Hitchcock and Ed Hindson examine the concept, context, and consequences of the important and long-expected event known as the rapture. Discover the answers to such questions as…
- What is the rapture—and is there any historical precedent for it?
- Why do some believers object to the idea of a rapture?
- Does the timing of the rapture really make a difference?
As you explore what Scripture says about the end times, you’ll get a grander glimpse of your glorious future and the deepest hope of every follower of Jesus.

"Can We Still Believe in the Rapture? is the most fair and balanced defense of the rapture in print today. Ed Hindson and Mark Hitchcock present a clear, concise, and credible defense of this amazing biblical doctrine. They give the believer a love for our Lord's coming. Don't miss it!"
—Dr. Robert Jeffress, Pastor, First Baptist Church of Dallas, TX
"In an age where it is all too common to speak of the rapture as a recent idea that lacks biblical roots and leads to a lack of engagement with the world as it is, Mark Hitchcock and Ed Hindson take a close biblical look at the doctrine and the objections to it. This book is loaded with careful historical, biblical, and theological observations about pretribulationism. It is a book that should not be left behind!"
—Darrell L. Bock, Executive Director for Cultural Engagement, Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
"I have read several helpful books on the rapture, but this one is at the top. Mark Hitchcock and Ed Hindson make a compelling exegetical, theological, and historical case for a pretribulational rapture. They also take on the best and most current arguments from those who oppose the pretribulational rapture view. Adherents of a pretrib rapture will be encouraged. Those who disagree will have to interact with the arguments in this book."
—Michael J. Vlach, Professor of Theology, The Master's Seminary
"It's a vitally important question on a key topic for believers: Can we still believe in the rapture? I'm grateful for this substantive and biblical answer to the question and especially recommend that a new generation of Christians and pastors read and reflect upon the truths of this outstanding book."
—Dr Jack Graham, Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church, Plano, TX
"Yes, we can still believe! Read this book with an open mind and you may also be convinced that you can believe in the rapture. When we believe in the rapture, our sense of urgency and our commitment to advancing the gospel increases greatly."
—Dr. Ronnie Floyd, Senior Pastor, Cross Church, AR; President, National Day of Prayer; past president of Southern Baptist Convention
"The biblical doctrine concerning the rapture of the church has caused considerable debate and confusion among Christians. For many, when confusion ramps up, they are quick to back out, throw up their hands, and say, 'Who can really know?' I pray this is not your reaction. God's prophetic words exist to inform us, enthuse us, and motivate us regarding 'our blessed hope' (Titus 2:13). This book is sure to do just that. Hitchcock and Hindson carefully guide us through the biblical data, respond to today's popular criticisms, and help us to say with confidence, 'Yes, we can still believe in the rapture!'"
—Mike Fabarez, Pastor, Compass Bible Church, Aliso Viejo, CA; host of Focal Point Radio Ministries
"This book provides a fair and balanced defense of classic, dispensational pretribulationism. Anyone interested in correctly understanding this position will benefit from this work."
—Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Ed Hindson and Mark Hitchcock carefully walk us through what the Bible says about what could be the next great event on God's prophetic calendar. The early church was animated and purified by this 'blessed hope'—the joyous expectation of Jesus's return. Seeing that Jesus has yet to appear, this doctrine is even more relevant for us today in the twenty-first century. Now more than ever, every Christian and critic ought to consider carefully the simple and clear message of what God's Word has to say about the doctrine of the rapture."
—Jack Hibbs, Senior Pastor Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, CA; host of Real Life radio broadcast
"In today's church the blessed hope is increasingly a buried hope. Sadly the doctrine of the church's pretribulational rapture is being buried beneath an avalanche of caricatures and criticisms. Thankfully my friends Mark and Ed have come to this doctrine's rescue. Tunneling through history, digging through Scripture, and shoveling aside misunderstanding, they have uncovered for a new generation of Christians the biblical basis, historical justification, and practical impact of the blessed hope of Jesus imminent return for His church at the rapture. Can we still believe in the rapture? Yes we can, and yes we must!"
—Philip De Courcy, Pastor, Kindred Community Church in Anaheim Hills, CA; Bible teacher on daily radio program Know the Truth
