    Rapture Practice A True Story (Book): Hartzler, Aaron: Grand Central PubSometimes salvation is found in the strangest places: a true story. Aaron Hartzler grew up in a home where he was taught that at any moment the Rapture could happen. That Jesus might come down in the twinkling of an eye and scoop Aaron and his family up to heaven. As a kid, Aaron was thrilled . Rapture Practice A True Story (Book): Hartzler, Aaron: In this funny and heartfelt coming-of-age memoir, debut author Aaron Hartzler recalls his teenage journey to find the person he is without losing the family that loves him. It's a story about losing your faith and finding your place and your own truth-- which is always stranger than fiction.

    In his YA memoir, Rapture Practice, Aaron Hartzler details the trials and tribulations of his childhood and adolescence, growing up in a conservative Christian family and believing that the Rapture might happen at any always knew he was a little different—and not just because, as it turns out, he was gay. Now Hartzler shares with BookPage readers the advice .   Aaron Hartzler’s new y.a. memoir, Rapture Practice, is the funny-sad-hopeful story of one kid’s lonely journey of self-awareness and spiritual angst while growing up in a fundamentalist Christian family.I was particularly excited to read the memoir because I made a similar journey when I was growing up in an evangelical Christian family.

      There’s a lot of Rapture Practice where you just kind of grip the book with anger over the punishments Hartzler experiences, even though they do come from a place of genuine love. I think that for me personally, it was hard to read those sections, but because I was raised in a similar faith (Baptist) I got it. Now as we look at the Rapture and the Revelation of Jesus Christ and the contrast between the two, I would like to deal with three different aspects of the subject: (1) The action of each is different. (2) The attitude toward each is different. (3) The anticipation of each is different. The action of the Rapture and the Revelation are different.
