Dr. Barbara Rossing to Give Public Lecture and Book Signing, April 27, 2004

Posted Mar 8, 2004

Dr. Barbara Rossing, professor of New Testament at the Lutheran School of Theology, will present a public lecture on Tuesday, April 27, 2004, in the LSTC Common Room at 7:00 p.m. In the lecture, entitled, "Rapture, Revelation and the Middle East: Reading the Apocalypse so No One is "Left Behind,'" Rossing will challenge the popular but mistaken Christian belief that Revelation predicts a so-called "Rapture" followed by cataclysm in the Middle East. Instead, she will offer a nonviolent vision for "Lamb Power" around the nation-healing tree of life as the central message of Revelation, drawing on her new book, The Rapture Exposed: The Message of Hope in the Book of Revelation.

A book signing, including a wine and cheese reception, will precede the lecture from 4:45 until 6:15 pm in the LSTC Book Center.
