Bibliography of Works on Pretribulationism

Dennis M. Swanson

Seminary Librarian

The subjects of eschatology in general and various positions on the rapture in particular have generated an enormous body of literature in the last century. This bibliography represents the collected research of contributors to this issue of TMSJ as well as additional sources not cited in the articles. To affirm pretribulationism, a response to points raised by other positions is necessary. As a general rule, writings related to the return of Christ to the earth and the millennium have not been included unless they deal with the timing of the rapture also. This bibliography is not exhaustive, but rather suggestive for those wishing to do additional study.

The bibliography’s six major categories are (1) General and Introductory Works, (2) Biblical Commentaries, (3) Works on Posttribulationalism, (4) Works on Midtribulationalism, (5) Works on Pre-Wrath Rapturism, and (6) Works on Pretribulationalism. Each section contains monographs, multi-author works, journal articles, and unpublished material, all listed by author.
