ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Dr. Cynthia Wallace is an award-winning author with over thirty publications in law and policy (articles, books, reviews, editorials, etc.) and in creative writing (poetry and prose, including spiritual subjects), as well as an award-winning artist. 

She is a Spirit-filled Christian who has known the Lord since early childhood. An American, her home for over 25 years has been Geneva, Switzerland, where she moved in 1991 to assume a diplomatic post at the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UN/ECE). There she served as Senior Advisor to the Executive Secretary -- the highest position to be held by a woman or an American in the organization up to that time. 

While at the UNECE, she helped to found an international church -- "Church for the Nations" -- in which she served as elder and intercessor, as well as on the prayer and music ministry teams, at times leading the worship and occasionally bringing the message from the pulpit. There she held monthly all-night prayer for the nations for some 5 years.

Beginning in 2002, she reached out beyond the 4 walls of her home churchin a more apostolic approach, to lead weekly 3-hour prophetic intercessory worship gatherings -- first in a 100-year-old church at the "gates" of Geneva, and later in a 700-year-old church in her own mountain village, looking down over the Lake of Geneva, across to the Alps and the massive Mont Blanc, and all the way up the Lake to the majestic "jet d'eau" (sky-piercing fountain) in the heart of Geneva, known as "the City of God", harking back to the Reformation with John Calvin and the other contemporary reformers. These intercessory worship evenings were known as "Breakthrough Worship" and are the source of her book with that title. 

By profession, Dr. Wallace is an international lawyer with a Ph.D. from Cambridge University and a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College. She has held various posts in academia (inter alia, Harvard, McGill, Georgetown, Heidelberg, and Cambridge Universities) as well as in various international agencies of the United Nations (Vienna, New York, and Geneva).

For 10 years she lived in Washington D.C., where she was engaged in international law and policy research at Georgetown University's International Law Institute (ILI) and the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS, a D.C. "think tank"), including assignments with the World Bank, USAID, and the Pentagon. These and various UN organizations have taken her to all continents and corners of the globe She speaks French and German, with 'smatterings' of additional languages. 

Dr. Wallace has been awarded repeated legal research fellowships to both the Max-Planck Institute for public international law in Heidelberg and that for private international law in Hamburg, Germany. Her legal training and extensive professional research and writing experience have specially equipped her with a highly detail-oriented, thorough and systematic approach which she applies to scriptural as well as legal research. Built upon an already innately inquisitive, logical, and analytic mind, she feels blessed to be able to lend these particular characteristics and acquired skills to the writing of all her books -- whether legal or spiritual. 

Dr. Wallace is currently living in Upstate New York in order to care for her 101-year-old mother. She ultimately plans to return to Geneva, Switzerland, having attained dual citizenship.


AUTHOR'S PERSONAL MESSAGE TO THE READER 

You might wonder why God would choose an international lawyer, rather than one more theologian, to write a book on the timing of the Rapture. To really dig into the Scriptures and arrive at the pro-positions and conclusions set out in DON'T MISS THE RAPTURE required a high degree of legal discipline in approaching the "Original Source" (a lawyer's watchword) -- in this case, the BIBLE. To prepare me even to presume to challenge some widely accepted and too-seldom questioned eschatological 'doctrines', Father may well have had to draw me into the law, with its precision-oriented disciplines, for the main pur-pose of fine-tuning and honing these skills for bringing forth this one book, for His purposes, at such a time as this.

In a sense, the book actually began to write itself already at about age 12, long before even hearing of such a thing as "international law" or, for that matter, the "Rapture". At that tender age, Father  already gave me a fascination for the Book of Revelation and all the related prophetic Scriptures I could discover. I believe Father was at work even then, quietly but sovereignly preparing me for this particular  assign-ment. 

A significant catalyst came decades later when, in my Washington DC apartment, I heard the Holy Spirit one day say clearly in my spirit, word for word: "Forget everything you've ever heard and read it again." (I knew at once He was talking of the Book of Revelation.) I gladly obeyed, and this book is the ultimate fruit of that Word and some 20+ additional years of further searching of the Scriptures., which I am still searching 

May your reading of this book of my heart bless and encourage you as you search and consider the Scriptures with me and arrive at your own sanctified conclusions.
