This book got tedious near the end because it became obvious that the logic and rhetoric of dispensationalism was generally recycled over and over again. However tedious it was, I continuously felt thankful that someone, especially someone as responsible and fair as Paul Boyer, has done this hard work and made it available to us. The only flaw is that it is older. Left Behind wasn't even published yet. There's so much current stuff that could go into this book.Left Behind was written), more accessible, and shorter book, that is less "objective," you should try the Rapture Exposed by Dr. Barbara R. Rossing. She actually cites Boyer a few times. Great read as well.
