Moderate Christians fight rapture with Sunday school

Moderate Christians fight rapture with Sunday school - US: "Speakers at the conference, organized by the Episcopal Church's Trinity Institute, minced no words in their attempt to turn a tide that has swept much of middle America.

'The rapture is a racket,' said Barbara Rossing, whose 2004 book, 'The Rapture Exposed,' criticizes rapture theology as unbiblical.

Rossing, a Lutheran minister and teacher at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago, said fiction that focuses on Armageddon -- the ultimate battle between good and evil that follows rapture -- is popular in the United States because it plays into American fear."
