Brief Description

This often puzzling and frequently misunderstood book is presented with a refreshing approach that captures not only John’s hope for his first listeners, but implications for today’s believers. In selected passages, students find new ways to read an ancient vision that speaks about the past and the present, too, not simply the future. By interweaving the ancient world of the original John with the concerns of today’s church, this study helps learners see that Revelation does reveal truths to those seeking to hear its original message. Readers are challenged to study Revelation from the vantage points of the history, culture, original audience, and literary skills of its writers. For those eager to explore a new way of reading Revelation, this installment of the Annual Bible Study series provides a deeper appreciation for this most strange of New Testament books.
