Episode Info: A Thief in the Night may not be the first rapture film, but it is certainly the blueprint for many of the ones we’ve seen since its inception.  Including, of course, Left Behind. On this week’s episode Jeff, Dylan and Adam dissect this 1972 ‘classic’. Although there are some surprising bright spots in the film making this film falls so short of being a quality film. Film making aspects aside however, the real question is how does it measure on the silver meter.  Does rapture theology hold up as a true expression of progressive theology or does it leave us all left behind to pick of the pieces of our deconstructed past?  Listen and find out. A Thief in the Night Review (03:28) Ratings and Redeemed Perspectives for A Thief in the Night (30:02)   PLOT SUMMARY Despite several opportunities to accept Jesus in her heart, Patty Myers wakes to find that her husband along with millions of others have gone missing in the blink of an eye.  Patty struggles with her place in this new post rapture world. All the things she was told would happen are happening now before her eyes, however, despite not wanting to take on the mark of the beast she is still reluctant to accept Jesus as her Savior.  Will she give into this new world order or suffer the consequences of becoming a new Christian?
