The book of Revelation has long fascinated and even confused readers and students of the Bible. Yet the Bible is written to be understood, and Revelation is no exception. Who better to help you understand the seals, trumpets, vials, woes, and plagues than John F. Walvoord, one of evangelicalism's most prominent leaders, and Mark Hitchcock, today's leading Bible prophecy expert?
In this first in a renewed series of commentaries from Dr. Walvoord, he points out that much of the book's symbolism can be interpreted literally. At key points, different views and approaches to interpretation are explored. Walvoord devotes special attention to textual and doctrinal issues while avoiding technical language.
Refined, updated with the English Standard Version (ESV), and streamlined, this classic text is set to help you interpret the last book of the Bible and gain a better grasp of current trends and the climax of history!

Classic Dispensational theology in a verse by verse commentary. Sound scholarship blends historical integrity with careful exegesis. If you want to get a good grip on the book of Revelation this is worth having in your Nook library.
So often, we make eschatological scripture so mysterious and symbolic. This work takes a lot of that away, giving a much more down to earth interpretation for the average person to understand. Moody Publishers, thank you!
