Bauckham writes concisely and thoughtfully. He brings intellectual integrity to the most misunderstood, yet most practical New Testament book. After dozens of commentaries and end-time theologies, finally one may enjoy a writer and scholar who makes sense of it all! He fully understands the continuum of Old Testament-New Testament theology and prophecy. Yet, he makes it clear that The Revelation is an instructive epistle, originally for the recipients under persecution and presently to the Church universal. Enough of the divisive misinterpretations...read this book and enjoy! It will bless your heart today.

Used as Textbook
I read this book as one of several required in a seminary class I audited on Revelation. As a lay minister, I found the book to be accessible. It was not too ladden with language not readily known by students like me nor did it require extensive, previous background to understand. Yet I felt it covered a depth of learning that would be welcome reading by a biblical scholar. It provides excellent analysis of the book of Revelation in relation to its theology.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Great adult study resource
I have used professor's Bauckam's book as a resource for a 6 month study of the Book of Revelation and found it an excellent resource for teaching adult laity. It facilitates a dept in adult teaching that laity find both challenging and exciting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
