One of the subjects I've got queued for research is Rapture Theology. I thought I'd post this video for comment from my BB friends. One question I have is whether there is evidence that the view of the rapture popular with dispensationalists is more than just a 19th century development. One quote from the video I found interesting is, "Rather than viewing natural disasters and wars as horrific events that require Christian action, many embrace these events as exciting symbols that Christ will soon rapture his church. Many fear that these views are shaping American culture and political beliefs... If Christians are soon to be raptured out of the world, why bother taking care of it?"
