Not looking for a debate, but does FL offer any specific resources that challenge the Left Behind novels and the pre-mill dispensational view?

Or even the Darbyian/Darbian history of how it all got started?

Here are some resources that I have found helpful:

The Parousia by James Stuart Russell (Old, but extremely thought-provoking!)

Kenneth Gentry Collection

The Last Days according to Jesus by R.C. Sproul 

Last Days Madness by Gary Demar

A very creative approach by Hank Hanegraaff: rebut novels with novels.

Agreed. I suggested it week or so ago.

Someone wrote an article in my seminary weekly newspaper some years ago called "It's Time Christians Left Behind 'Left Behind'". Smile

A nice, little book, written from the Orthodox perspective.

You mean people still believe the left behind novels are actually true 😂😂😂 

I remember believing in that when I was 10.

Anyway, the books recommended I have them all.  Gary Demar is good and the one Rosie suggested, but is not in Logos.  There’s also another book titled “Like a Thief in the Night” by Stafford North; but unfortunately, is not in Logos either.  Gives a great overview of premillennialism and many of its beliefs and also refutes the novel pretty good.

Jan Krohn:

Thanks for bringing up Hank! You reminded me of his book The Apocalypse Code. His style is a bit harsh, but still an engaging read.
