I am teaching a church class on the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Revelation is extremely important, but difficult to understand all of the symbolism. The book does an excellent job in explaining and discussing the symbols. Moreover, it is true to the Scriptures. I highly recommend it for the first time student or for someone with good knowledge of the Bible but wants a better understanding of the last Book.
