These are just a few of the factors that Dr. Salem Kirban's book Countdown to Rapture focus on to get people today thinking about the realities of a future eternity. Dr. Kirban's desire to is point out, through Bible prophecy, the coming signs that point toward man's ultimate judgment by God during Daniel's seventeeth week, called by many the "tribulation perioid." The rapture of the church is the event that become the catalyst for thisworld-changing epic, ultimately resulting in the destruction of the earth.
Provocative yet thoughtful, this book will challenge all of us to look around at the signs in our world today and take note of the impending judgment to come on this world.
