"What is frightening is the loss of the sacred in the human, particularly in sexual relations, because it means no true union is possible." Marguerite Yourcenar Shortly before her death in a car accident, Camille, a quiet, erudite, somewhat mysterious unmarried woman in her sixties, had entrusted to a friend - the narrator of this book - a manuscript that described a passionate love affair she had experienced when she was forty. Rapture is this woman's meticulously detailed and totally candid account of the highs and lows of a physical and spiritual relationship with a man, Julien, that overwhelmed and obsessed her, and of their secret meetings and rituals in a white bedroom. Rarely in fiction has sexuality, both male and female, been analysed so extensively - and so honestly - from a woman's perspective. Interspersed with Camille's introspective analysis of the growth and decline of her love for Julien are a series of reflections taken from Roland Barthes, Georges Bataille and Proust, among others, that serve as a counterpoint to this memorable tale of an all-consuming love affair.

From Amazon best selling author, Perri Forrest. When you think of rapture, you think of ecstasy, bliss, elation, and things of that nature. In short, a feeling of intense pleasure or joy. Rush had that. Or rather, Rush has that in the beautiful Alika Collins. Alika brings forth everything he wants in a woman. The two literally crashed into each other's lives, and their whirlwind love story is safely set on solid ground. But is it really? And if so, for how long? There are certainly things that can disrupt what they have just begun to build. Recently, Rush was dealt a devastating blow: He has a young daughter who he never knew existed. After this life-shattering secret is exposed, Rush finds out that those close to him are the ones behind it all. Feeling betrayed, he instantly dismisses those individuals from his life. In his mind, their actions were unforgivable and mending fences is not of urgency. At present, his primary goal is finding, and forging a relationship, with his child. Nothing will keep him from doing that. But while Rush is establishing this new phase of life, things are in disarray in the old life. For one, someone wants Rush's father dead and will go to great lengths to make it happen. Then there's the mother of Rush's daughter who wants more than to co-parent. This leaves Alika feeling the strain of it all while trying to remain by his side. Yes, things become chaotic. But, Rush is no stranger to chaos. Hell, he even has a club called Chaos, as a testament to where he's been and what he's made of. But how much can one person take? Rapture 2 brings many things to question, but it will be interesting to see how it all turns out in the end. Specifically, which relationships will remain intact, and which ones will be forever altered to the point of no return.

The setting is a New York apartment where two long-estranged lovers try to resuscitate their passion. Kay is old enough to be skeptical about men–this man in particular–but still alert to the possibility of true love. Benjamin is a filmmaker with an appealing waywardness and a conveniently disappearing fiancée. As the two lie entwined in bed, Susan Minot ushers readers across an entire landscape of memory and sensation to reveal the infinite nuances of sex: its power to exalt and deceive, to connect two separate selves or make them fully aware of their solitude. Honest and unflinching, the result is a hypnotic reading experience. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Every person on Earth will one day stand before God and give an account of what they have done, whether it be good or evil, in addition to their acceptance or rejection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as their personal Saviour. Whether or not you believe it, Jesus Christ is coming back again to judge the world for their iniquity. That's what God's prophets have saidand His prophets have never been wrong! From a pre-millennial viewpoint, "Post Tribulation Rapture" evaluates the three major positions regarding the timing of the return of Jesus Christ to Earth in relation to the final seven years of man's history. Will there be signs of Christ's coming? Will everyone see Him coming? Does Christ return two more times? What is the "Day of the Lord"? Who are the "elect" people on Earth? When will the Antichrist be revealed? Is the return of Christ imminent? Who will populate the kingdom? What are the three main rapture positions? How do they differ? Who is the restrainer? "Post Tribulation Rapture" includes fourteen detailed charts and an extensive glossary/dictionary defining the most commonly used phrases and terms in Bible prophecy.

This book uses various Truths of Scripture to reveal the verifications of the end of physical life for all living persons. Some have misconstrued unintentionally the Truths pertaining to the Rapture Event. Some maintain their stand that a generation will not die. Their continued misunderstanding causes them to believe that some peoples of a particular generation are to escape death. They will stress that there are persons who will circumvent the explicit Truths of God revealed in Scripture, such as Hebrews 9:27 KJV. This verse, and many others, plainly state that ALL persons die once. For a person with a mind willing to learn, they will through their faith provided to them by God, realize that not one person will ever escape death. Jesus The Christ did not escape death. Neither will Enoch and Elijah eventually. Contained herein is irrefutable proof that people do die in the fullness of time. J.Steve a crusader for Truths contained within Scripture. He professes that The Holy Spirit chose him to tie together, and to expound Truths of The Rapture Theory. The understandings of Truths are revealed in fullness of time for prophecies. He contends that persons of authority, who have acceptance by the masses, are in error in their interpretation of some end-time events. J.Steve is convinced that a person, no matter how strong their faith, or intelligent their deductive reasoning, should never alter Scriptures to be contrary to Truth. Jehovah stated that it is inevitable for people to die one time. That Truth must be understood not ignored. People should never attempt to change facts in Scripture to suit their desires. J.Steve further claims that he is willing to stand at the Judgment Seat of Christ, to answer for this explanation of Truths found in the Scriptures, used to compile this manuscript.
