    Elaine Pagels is fabulous

    Anything that Elaine Pagels writes is worth having in your library. She's a great researcher and fluid writer.

    Very Interesting Reccomend

    If you like to know the "how did it get this way?" you will enjoy Revelations. As a teenager I read this chapter of the bible and as an adult had let it pass from my memory. I have pursued many paths to understanding and had questions about the symbolism of that chapter. This not only made sense but made me more aware of the different choices early Christians had to make.

    Any work by Professor Pagels is good to read. This is a popular work with a great deal of depth to it. I think that I have read all of her books, though not all her published work.

    Part of what makes this book great is that this is a work that a non-believer can enjoy. The references are quite good. The level of scholarship is sound with Dr. Pagels working with a broad range of current and earlier scholarship.

    Excellent writing and scholarship

    Elaine Pagels uses excellent historical scholarship by bringing the Book of Revelations into perspective for modern times. By helping us understand the times in which it was written and what was happening historically at the time, we are better able to put this book into it's proper context. She is also and excellent writer. Her prose flows and doesn't get bogged down in professorial weightiness.

    Learned much

    Really enjoyed this carefully resesrched book. Would've enjoyed more textual analysis of Revelation but overall does a great job showcasing the history of the Book. Give this to your fundamentalist Xian friend and watch them squirm!
