This is the basis that animates the vastly renowned cultural phenomenon that's the Left in the back of sequence of prophecy novels, co-written via Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins and released among 1995 and 2007. yet those books are greater than fiction: it's the honest trust of many evangelicals that those occasions really will occur--soon. Plotting Apocalypse delves into the area of rapture, prophecy, and tribulation that allows you to account for the intense cultural salience of those books and the effect of the area they undertaking. via penetrating readings of the novels, Chapman indicates how the sequence bargains a brand new version of evangelical corporation for its readership.
