Welcome to the recommended reading list of Rapture Forums. We have put together this list of books that we feel would be good additions to the library of Bible Prophecy students.
The Sifted Generation
by Michael L. Henderson
Summary:Has the final end-time generation-spoken of by Jesus and the prophets-finally arrived? Could our generation be the one that is witnessing the beginning phases of the second coming of the Lord? If so, will you be one of the faithful Jesus finds when He calls His church to heaven? In The Sifted Generation, Pastor Michael Henderson takes a unique look at the final generation from which the true church will be sifted just prior to the days of tribulation that are coming on the entire earth. The Bible tells us the times of that generation will be perilous! Blasphemies, selfishness, rebelliousness, gracelessness, slanderous hearts, hedonistic behavior, and a lack of respect for God, His church, and His commandments will rule the day. As evidenced in the social and cultural wars around the globe, it is evident that the world is already choosing its sides.
Ironically, the Bible declares that a man will arise in the last days. He will be a religious leader who will have great charisma and the uncanny ability to garner support from large sections of unbelieving humanity. Through deceptive words, promises, and the quasi miraculous, this religious leader will then persuade his followers to support one even more sinister than he. This partner in deception will pounce on the opportunity to take the reins of the world under his control. The Sifted Generation explores what life will be like on Earth just before the Lord begins the consummation of all things. The question is: When the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the Earth? (Luke 18:8).

Those Who Are Wise Will Shine
by Michael L. Henderson
Summary:Those Who Are Wise Will Shine takes a deeper look at redemption from the perspective of following the lineage of Jesus. In doing this God's amazing work and purpose is brought to light as it directly relates to bringing redemption or salvation into the world. It is punctuated by the simple gospel message that it is Christ that God sent to relate to humanity on our level. Because He became like us, only He is truly able to represent us as our mediator.
The book starts with Adam and progresses from there tracing his bloodline all the way till it stops at Christ. Along the way, God's work is amazingly revealed in the lives and purposes of Cain and Abel, the fallen angels and the Nephilim; the lives of Noah and his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth; the demonic origins of the Tower of Babel and Nimrod. You will learn how God used the angels to scatter the people across the earth and divide the languages. You will be acquainted with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; Joseph, Ephraim, and Manasseh; David, Solomon and the Kings who ruled the Divided Kingdoms. And lastly, the pre and post exile days of the Jewish people, and the birth of Jesus followed by His still future, second coming. Literally, the lives of those who were called out and accepted the call to be God's light in a dark world, are exposed, whether in weakness or strength. We see in their lives, the Lord constantly working in and through them and sometimes disciplining them for forgetting Him. Truly, it is an awesome journey!
God's desire has always been to bring salvation to the world. His creation, of which humanity is the crowning glory, is always in His sights. In this book we can learn what it really means to be a part of God's family and what it means to be responsible for bearing the holy nature of God before a lost world.
As a bearer of God's light, never forget Him and never forget your created purpose. "Those Who Are Wise Will Shine!" helps you to embrace the work of God in your redemption.

I have relied on this book as a resource for years." Michael Rydelnik, Professor of Jewish Studies Program, Moody Bible Institute

Epicenter: Why Current Rumblings in the Middle East Will Change Your Future
by Joel Rosenberg
Summary: With over one million novels in print, New York Times best-selling author Joel C. Rosenberg has been called "eerily prophetic" and a "modern Nostradamus" for his uncanny ability to write political thrillers that come true. In his first nonfiction book, this evangelical Christian from an Orthodox Jewish heritage takes readers on an unforgettable journey through prophecy and current events into the future of Iraq after Saddam, Russia after Communism, Israel after Arafat, and Christianity after radical Islam. You won't want to miss Joel's exclusive interviews with Israeli, Palestinian, and Russian leaders, and previously classified CIA and White House documents. Similar to the approach Joel takes in his novels, his desire is to draw readers into stories, anecdotes, and predictions in a way that builds confidence that allows Joel to share his faith in Jesus Christ and the reliability of Scripture as a guide to understanding the past and the future. Drawing on his experience in Washington, his own exclusive interviews with world leaders, and his astute political acumen, Joel makes sense of the events surrounding the Middle East. He connects information in a way that will make you understand and really care about the world's most important events and how they impact your life--from gas prices to your bank account.

Countdown to the Apocalypse: Learn to read the signs that the last days have begun.
by Dr. Grant Jeffrey
Summary: A number of prophets had a glimpse of the future, but God gave only one prophet a precise calendar of the end-times events that will affect the current generation.
Writing more than 2,500 years ago, Daniel described a series of cataclysmic events and the signs that will precede the end times. According to prophecy expert Grant R. Jeffrey, many of the signs that Daniel pointed to are visible in our world today.
Daniel's vision reveals startling details about the identity of the coming Antichrist, his political career, his death, and his Satanic resurrection. After completing an exhaustive study of Daniel's prophecies, Dr. Jeffrey presents a detailed description of the Antichrist's rise as world dictator, the mark of the beast, and the political maneuvering that will set the stage for global government. In light of the Hebrew calendar and the cycle of Jewish festivals, Dr. Jeffrey uncovered precise dates for major apocalyptic events, including a timeline for the Antichrist's rise to power, the major events of the Tribulation, and the timing of the Battle of Armageddon.
God allowed Daniel to see the world we will soon live in as we approach the time for the return of the Messiah. Now learn exactly what Daniel knew.
