Left Behind

Via John M's LJ, I acquired this link which is basically a page-by-page review/commentary/trashing of the Left Behind series (in principle; Slacktivist has only managed to trudge through 100 or so pages in a year).

Interesting reading; makes quite compellingly the case that the Rapture, and Evangelicalism in general (at least insofar as it is represented by the Left Behind books, which at least a certain wing of it is) represent an extremely pernicious heresy from the standpoint of any reasonable Christian doctrinal system.

Handy term for the notion, too: Pre-Millennial Dispensationalist Theology
