“There shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own [desires]. . . saying, where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
More than two decades after the original printing of this book, Dave Hunt’s insights are clearer than ever! During the 1970s when The Late, Great Planet Earth was outselling everything, the Rapture was the hot topic. Pastors preached about heaven, and Christians eagerly anticipated being taken up at any moment to meet their Lord in the air. When Christ didn’t return, and the 40 years since the establishment of a new Israel in 1948 expired without the fulfillment of prophesied events, disillusionment began to set in. Today, a growing number of Christians are exchanging the hope of the Rapture for a “new” hope—that Christians can clean up society and elect their own candidates to political office to make this world a “heaven on earth.” Bestselling author Dave Hunt probes the question “Whatever happened to heaven?” thoroughly and provides an easily understandable explanation of all the many issues and beliefs. Hunt shows us that heaven really is our home and brings fascinating new clarity to why we lost that hope and how it can be regained.
