Books dealing with the Second Coming have always been popular. There are literally hundreds if not thousands available. However, virtually all of them deal with the subject assuming a pre-tribulation rapture. Conflicting teachings are ignored or ridiculed. Jesus is Only Coming Twice examines the conflicting claims for the timing of the Rapture and Tribulation from pre-, mid and post tribulation positions and demonstrates the Biblical basis (or lack of basis) behind each theory, concluding that the commonly held pre-tribulation rapture theory is an unhistorical and unbiblical heresy.
Jay Phelan Jr., president of North Park Theological Seminary has said, “I think that the neglect of the study of eschatology in the church is a serious mistake, and it’s one of the reasons that stuff like Left Behind becomes so popular. People are hungry to have some information about what the Bible says about the future. And if you don’t give them something good to eat, they’ll eat junk food. And the Left Behind series are kind of the Twinkies and the Hostess Cupcakes of the theological world.”
If the Left Behind series are the Twinkies and cupcakes of the theological world, Jesus is Only Coming Twice is more like Mom’s home cookin’ – more nutritious and satisfying in the long run, something that’ll “stick to your ribs.”

About the Author
M.E. Brines spent the Cold War assembling atomic artillery shells and preparing to unleash the Apocalypse (and has a medal to prove it.) But when peace broke out, he turned his fevered, paranoid imagination to other pursuits. He spends his spare time scribbling another steampunk romance occult adventure novel, which despite certain rumors absolutely DOES NOT involve time-traveling Nazi vampires! A former member of the British Society for Psychical Research, he is a long-time student of the occult and a committed Christian who sees himself as a modern-day Professor Van Helsing equipping Believers for battle against the occult Principalities and Powers that rule a world in darkness. (Ephesians 6:12) The author of three dozen books, e-books, chapbooks and pamphlets on esoteric subjects such as alien abduction, alien hybrids, astrology, the Bible, biblical prophecy, Christian discipleship, conspiracies, esoteric Nazism, the Falun Gong, Knights Templar, magick, and UFOs, his work has also appeared in Challenge magazine, Weird Tales, The Outer Darkness, Tales of the Talisman, and Empirical magazine. *I'm often asked how I square my Christianity and "messing around" with the occult, as if I'm partial to bestial things with a goat under the amber light of the moon or something. No so. I'm a student, in the same way I used to study Soviet weapons and tactics back when I was a US Army officer. This gives my work a unique perspective no matter what your belief system. I don't judge. I just present the information and let the reader decide.
