For a thorough refutation of the Pre-wrath rapture position as manifest in H. L. Nigro's "Before God's Wrath", take a look at this book by Independent Baptist Pastor Carl W. Denson called "Paul's Gathering or Pre-wrath Perversion". Van Kampen and Rosenthal are also mentioned prominently as the founders of the "Pre-wrath" rapture position. The reader will come away with an understanding of all of the modern rapture positions and will certainly find this book to be doctrinally profitable. The Holy Scriptures are quoted over 4000 times in this 484 page book. This book will also illuminate the scriptures concerning the timing of Paul's gathering (i.e. the gathering of the body of Christ). While fully negating the "heresy" of prewrath rapturism, it establishes the position of the MIDWEEK rapture. This gathering is prior to the Great Tribulation which is the ONLY tribulation definitively spoken of in God's Holy Scriptures.
