By Marilyn Ferdinand

“What if everything those blessed-out, door-to-door Bible thumpers claimed was true? What if the end really is nigh, and those who don’t repent and pledge their souls to the Lord are subject to His wrath?” asks Scott Tobias in his review of Michael Tolkin’s audacious directorial debut The Rapture.
