Christianity Knowledge Base

Dr. John F. Walvoord (1 May 1910 - 20 December 2002), was a Christian author and theologian.

Walvoord was the second president of Dallas Theological Seminary. He served as president from 1952 to 1986. He held the A.M. degree from Texas Christian University in philosophy and the Th.D. degree from Dallas Theological Seminary in Systematic theology.

Walvoord wrote several books, focusing primarily on eschatology and theology including The Rapture Question. In this book he discussed the pros and cons of the major beliefs surrounding the timing of the Rapture of Christians from the earth. His conclusion was that this will occur before, and will precipitate the "Seven year tribulation". He was also the author of the book The Millennial Kingdom in which he details the various Christian Premillennial Theologies.
