This book refutes the preterist theory that Jesus returned invisibly during the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70 and demonstrates fully the truth recorded in Scripture.

Compiled by G. Jorge Medina.

Contributing authors include: David Bernard, William B. Chalfant, Steve Pixler, John T. Larabell, J. R. Ensey, Phillip A. Dugas, Jorge Medina, Ken Gurley, and David Norris.

Brother Jorge Medina has provided in these writings a book that has long been needed. For several years we have needed answers to the many questions that the doctrine of preterism has raised in students and ministers across the globe. This book is written from a biblical perspective and we can always trust the Bible to have the correct answers for every subject that would not appear to be sound doctrine. Thank you Brother Medina for the many hours you have spent in compiling such excellent writings.

Our movement has made allowance for unity in diversity. We must not, however, seek diversity at the expense of truth. We must at all times take a firm stand for biblical truth, as the authors of this book have done. They have thoroughly demonstrated that preterism contradicts the Holy Writ. While we can allow for a pre-trib, mid-trib, or post-trib Rapture, we cannot allow preterism to rob us of 'that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.'

I am happy to recommend this work that calls us back to a renewed emphasis on "that blessed hope," the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Since two men in white stood by the awestruck disciples as they watched Jesus ascending into heaven, believers have waited for Him to "come in like manner" as they saw Him go. With Paul, we confess that we who are alive and remain when the Lord descends from heaven shall be caught up with the dead in Christ to meet the Lord in the air. There is, as Paul says, comfort in these words.
