Unraptured: How End Times Theology Gets It Wrong

Are you rapture ready?As a teenager in the buckle of the Bible Belt, Zack Hunt wasconvinced the rapture would happen at any moment. Being ready meantnever missing church, never sinning, and always listening toChristian radio.But when the rapture didn't happen, Hunt's tightly wound faithbegan to fray. If he had been wrong about the rapture, what elseabout his faith might not hold water?Part memoir, part tour of the apocalypse, and part call toaction, Unraptured traces how the church's focus onescaping to heaven has it mired in decay. Teetering on the brink ofirrelevancy in a world rocked by refugee crises, climate change,war and rumors of war, the church cannot afford to focus on the endtimes instead of following Jesus in the here and now.Unraptured uses these signs of the times to help readersreorient their understanding of the gospel around loving and caringfor the least of these.
