Overview

“The book of Revelation is the scariest book in the Bible,” says Ray Stedman as he begins this commentary on the final book in the New Testament. “Yet it is also one of the most comforting, reassuring, and exhilarating books in the Bible.”
 
And then, with his characteristic clarity and care, Dr. Stedman leads you through the remarkable book of Revelation. As he says, “It is no accident that the book of Revelation appears as the last book of the Bible. Revelation gathers all the threads of theme and historic events contained in the rest of the Bible, weaving them into a seamless whole. The entire scope of human history—and of eternity itself—comes into brilliant focus in the book of Revelation.”
 
Like a well-written detective story, God’s Final Word explores the depths of John’s Revelation verse-by-verse and brings to life the mysteries of this highly symbolic book.
 
And when he is through, Dr. Stedman concludes: “Perhaps the most striking and profound aspect of this book is its relevance and importance to our lives today. The book of Revelation is not just a musty piece of parchment from a bygone age . . . The book of Revelation is vibrant, alive, and profoundly applicable to the times
in which you and I live.”

Meet the Author


Dr. Ray C. Stedman (1917-1992) grew up in the rugged cowboy country of Montana. Abandoned by his father when he was a young boy and emotionally cut-off from his mother, Ray had a ruggedly independent upbringing. Yet, through faith, he matured into one the great pastors, expositors, and spiritual leaders of the twentieth century. Today’s church is filled with pastors and leaders—men like David Roper, Charles Swindoll, and Luis Palau—who consider him their mentor and lifelong friend. Ray was a man’s man, who ended up being the father of four daughters. He and his family lived through the turbulent era of the 1960s and the Jesus Movement, a time of turmoil and heartache for Ray and his wife, Elaine, and a remarkable time of growth and expansion in his own ministry. Biblical teaching (exposition) was Ray’s calling and his passion, and he motivated people by the power of the preaching of the Word of God. He also inspired and taught many through the written word. With over nineteen books to his credit, from Spiritual Warfare to his insightful commentary Adventuring Through the Bible, Stedman’s published works span the experiences of Christian life. His book Body Life had tremendous impact on the church in the twentieth century. Ray Stedman’s preeminent goal was to be a faithful steward of the gifts God had given him.
