Here we are in the millennium that wasn't supposed to happen, as another generation of end-time authors and bible prophecy "specialists" have proven wrong. Again the Book of Revelation has been brought into disrepute. Can Christians "take back the book" and read John's Apocalypse with fresh eyes? Dr. Williams argues that the prophet John saw in the events of his own day a larger drama playing out, the ultimate struggle between God and evil. Because human nature never really changes, the same great themes speak to every age - including our own. In all the bad news of today's headlines, the Apocalypse unveils the good news that undergirds all human history and drives it forward toward its intended destiny. If you find the Book of Revelation only confusing or even frightening, this book is for you.
