  • Jesus Christ is coming again That is the Blessed Hope which has since the earliest days of the church energized biblical Christians looking for the full revelation of God s redemption But even among those who have most devoutly looked forward to the second coming of the Lord there have often been disputes about its nature At their sharpest, these disputes can lead to theJesus Christ is coming again That is the Blessed Hope which has since the earliest days of the church energized biblical Christians looking for the full revelation of God s redemption But even among those who have most devoutly looked forward to the second coming of the Lord there have often been disputes about its nature At their sharpest, these disputes can lead to the breakdown of fellowship among those who should be standing firmly together against unbelief Through its many printings, this book by George Eldon Ladd has proved to be a helpful guide for Christians who want to discern clearly the basic biblical teachings about the Blessed Hope Writing not for his fellow scholars as much as men and women in the pews, Ladd, whose numerous studies of New Testament interpretation earned him the reputation of being one of contemporary evangelicalism s leading thinkers, sketches the history of interpretations of Christ s second coming and then carefully and lucidly examines the biblical passages on which this doctrine is based Ladd s conclusion is that the blessed hope is the second coming of Jesus Christ, not a pretribulation rapture of believers in a secret coming of Jesus Yet he concludes, too, that there should be liberty and charity within the Christian community for all who hold to the expectation of the blessed hope and appearing in glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.

    1. Although the Pretribulation Rapture version of Premillennialism is no longer dominant in the academic world of evangelicalism, there is no doubt that it is still the assumed position of orthodoxy among many a man in the pew - particularly in Baptist and Bible churches. Ladd's aim in this book is to show that one can be a premillenialist without holding to a pretribulation rapture and yet still be a conservative and faithful student of Scripture. The fact that the last part of that sentence seems [...]


    2. George Ladd at his best. Although not comprehensive, this is an excellent study. Provides a solid biblical basis for our real hope, with sound historical information, good exegesis and word studies. Argues well against Scofield Dispensationalism without attempting to make their adherents look like idiots.





    3. As a critique of dispensationalism, it performs fairly well. As a defense of historic premillennialism, it falls short. I think he accomplished his goal of establishing that the blessed hope of the Christian is the second coming of Christ and not a secret rapture. I was hoping for more of a biblical defense of the historic premillennial position, and that wasn't his main objective, so my disappointment is not entirely the author's fault.


    4. Clear, Biblical and historical exposition on several topics surrounding the rapture, tribulation, and end times. Ladd is to be trusted.


    5. Best book on the end times and rapture of the church I have come across. I recommend it to everyone who feels at least a little confused on the subject.


    6. "The Blessed Hope" carefully studies the Bible to see if a pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church is clearly taught there or if it is equally or even more clearly taught that Christians will go through the Tribulation and be "raptured" only at the end when Jesus returns in glory.He starts with quotes of what early Christians wrote about Revelation in this regard. He also chronicles how the pre-Tribulation idea first appeared and was promoted around 1831. The author then looked at the verses refer [...]


    7. Another classic I re-read after 25 years. Ladd was an excellent NT scholar. He is a historical pre-millennialist. He has written a strong apology for this position. His spirit is an example to followed when disagreeing with another position.


    8. Probably should've read this with an open Bible as I would've gleaned more. Nevertheless, I found this book more helpful and organized than the Case for Historic Premillennialism. Much food for thought.


    9. Presents the 'Historical Pre-Millenial' view of the rapture of the church.This book was insrumental in shaking my belief in a 'secret' pre-tribulational Rapture.Excellent research by Dr. Ladd, whom I heard speak while I was a semiary student in California.


    10. No student of the Scriptures and of the Second Coming can afford to ignore this contribution to the subject. I wish I had read it sooner!


    11. Best book I've found outlining historic premillennialism's view of the post-tribulational rapture of the church.
