—from the Introduction

In this engaging and responsible volume, Scripture scholar Stephen Doyle uses a three-pronged approach to deciphering the complicated and often-misunderstood Book of Revelation—one that is accessible to a new Bible reader, yet useful to the serious student. Following the directives of the Second Vatican Council's Constitution on Divine Revelation, he helps the reader to: examine the text in light of its original language, understand what the human author meant to communicate, and determine the literary form used and its influence on the meaning of the text.

Each chapter begins with a passage of the Book of Revelation, followed by an explanation that searches for the main theme in that passage, and concludes with a reflection that casts light on the meaning of the text for today. A thorough bibliography provides resources for further study.
