Overview

As the climactic book of the New Testament, Revelation takes its readers through the pangs and throes of the world's death and then ushers them into the brilliance of the new and eternal state to come. Revelation is one of the Bible's "bookends," finishing with a triumphal sweep what Genesis begins. Yet because of its pictorial language and the complexity of its message, Revelation is often overlooked by believers convinced it's too difficult to understand.

In this theological and textual guide to the book of Revelation, leading evangelical educators combine their efforts to examine the issues that most interest and sometimes trouble twenty-first century readers. With verse-by-verse explanations and background analysis, this handbook is a tremendous aid to understanding the scope of God's inspired Revelation.

Topics covered include a comparison of the ways the Book of Revelation has been interpreted throughout history as well as an understanding of the book's structure. Other articles probe the book's views of the persons of the Trinity, the church, humanity, angels, salvation, and judgment.

Mal Couch, general editor, is founder and president of Tyndale Theological Seminary and Biblical Institute in Fort Worth, Texas. He previously taught at Philadelphia College of the Bible, Moody Bible Institute, and Dallas Theological Seminary.
