Why I Chose to Write a Book on the Rapture


I began writing my first book in 1992. I finished that book—Prayer A to Z: A Comprehensive Bible-Based Study of Prayer—in 2014. So it took me 22 years. But it was a big book—735 pages (in small font). It is a self-published book and I haven’t done much to market it—so it hasn’t sold very well.

Some people would probably get very discouraged, but I haven’t been. I want to keep writing books for the following reasons:

  • I have developed the disciple and the habit of writing in the morning and I want to keep it up.
  • I like writing. It keeps my mind stimulated.
  • I prefer writing a book rather than just blog articles, because it’s a bigger achievement and something I can feel good about. Also, a book allows me to expand a subject and broaden my knowledge of the subject much more than an article.
  • I feel a calling to write books; I feel God wants me to do it. I would not begin to write a book if I did not feel called by God to do it.

Well, shortly after I finished writing Prayer A to Z, I started thinking about what I would do next. I could either spend my time trying to market the book—writing articles about it, etc., or I could just continue writing—writing another book. I chose the latter because it was more appealing and because I thought that the more books I author the more people would take me seriously as a writer.  Besides, I think it is generally true that the more a person writes the better his writing will be.

So anyway, I chose to write a book proving the pre-Tribulation rapture, just because it is something I feel very strongly about and something that is not talked about or written about enough. This book, Biblical Evidence of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, along with another book, The Coming Millennial Kingdom, which I wrote at the same time, has taken me only 2 ½ years. I really like the books and I think my writing has improved.

I’ve already started on another book, which I’m really excited about. Its title will be After the Rapture. I’ll write more on that another time.
