A CLOSER LOOK AT THE RAPTURE - by Bill Britton:
out of the midst of this dark picture there will arise a people who not only
will HAVE light,
will BE the light
bring this dark world out of confusion and death.
Of them Isaiah spoke when he said
"then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness shall be as the noon day."
"But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day."
"There is a need to maintain a kind of balance of intellectual power. If no atheist philosophers engaged with the issue of God's existence, then the field would be left to the believers. We would then have the impression that only the religious deal with these issues with intelligence and sophistication. That would give succour to the legions of believers who have no interest in theology, but like to know others are taking care of it for them. We need books like this, therefore, not to win the battle–-for it can't be won-–but simply to show the enemy isn't off the hook."
