Overview

Richard Bauckham expounds the theology of the Book of Revelation: its understanding of God, Christ and the Spirit, the role of the Church in the world, and the hope of the coming of God's universal kingdom. Close attention is paid both to the literary form in which the theology is expressed and to the original context to which the book was addressed. Contrary to many misunderstandings of Revelation, it is shown to be one of the masterpieces of early Christian literature, with much to say to the Church today. This study offers a unique account of the theology and message of Revelation.

Bauckham writes concisely and thoughtfully. He brings intellectual integrity to the most misunderstood, yet most practical New Testament book. After dozens of commentaries and end-time theologies, finally one may enjoy a writer and scholar who makes sense of it all! He fully understands the continuum of Old Testament-New Testament theology and prophecy. Yet, he makes it clear that The Revelation is an instructive epistle, originally for the recipients under persecution and presently to the Church universal. Enough of the divisive misinterpretations...read this book and enjoy! It will bless your heart today.

I read this book as one of several required in a seminary class I audited on Revelation. As a lay minister, I found the book to be accessible. It was not too ladden with language not readily known by students like me nor did it require extensive, previous background to understand. Yet I felt it covered a depth of learning that would be welcome reading by a biblical scholar. It provides excellent analysis of the book of Revelation in relation to its theology.

I have used professor's Bauckam's book as a resource for a 6 month study of the Book of Revelation and found it an excellent resource for teaching adult laity. It facilitates a dept in adult teaching that laity find both challenging and exciting.
