One of my prophecy authors of choice interpreted Jesus’ statement that “this generation shall not pass away until all these things take place” to mean that Christ would come no more than 40 years after the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1947. When 1987 came and went with no Second Coming—or even a Rapture—I could feel my theological balloon going flat. Was the Bible wrong after all . . . or was I?

I had the Bible prophecy blues.
