St. Paul and the Evangelist: Revelations of Early Christianity in the Apocalypse of Johnby Michael W. Edmonds
St. Paul and the Evangelist is an astonishing exploration into the Book of Revelation with profound implications for early Christian studies. The apostles lived in an era of social injustice fueled by a clash of ideologies. Nowhere in scripture is this conflict more pronounced. Yet, John revealed more than an image of this life. His Apocalypse uses stark realism and dramatic irony to provoke us to inspect a conflicted time in the past, to expose a lost message about the future. John risked his life because he believed that our peace, happiness and survival were at stake. You've seen glimpses and heard pieces. Perhaps now, you're ready to solve its mysteries and uncover its secrets. You may have attempted it before only to find it puzzling or even disturbing. Maybe it's time to look again. Edmonds shows courage as he tactfully crosses boundaries that few priests or professors have dared. This book doesn't preach; it empowers.
