Originally published in 1923, this book contains an English translation of the biblical book of Revelation. Oman has rearranged the text in a way that he supposes replicates most closely the text as it was originally conceived and written, and supplies the original Greek text on the opposite page to the translation, as well as a detailed and thoughtful commentary at the end of the book. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in biblical commentary and the preservation and transmission of biblical texts.
