Since its introduction in the 19th century, the idea and concept of the “Rapture” has changed the face of the Christian religion, particularly in North America. Rooted in modern interpretations of the Gospel of Christ and the Revelation of John, the Rapture makes the bold claim that all Christian believers who are favoured by God will disappear off the face of the Earth in a split second – meaning paradise for those chosen, and hell on Earth for those left behind. We investigate this claim – from the modern followers of evangelists like Harold Camping – who have lost their life savings for the cause – to small town preachers who carry on the legacy of the Rapture. And, we meet the skeptics – some, even part of the Christian Faith who say the Rapture grew from the imagination of a modern day prophet named John Nelson Darby – and it is neither real nor impending. Is the Rapture real and should we be ready?
