Overview

The Book of Revelation contains some of the most difficult passages in Scripture. Grant Osborne's commentary on Revelation begins with a thorough introduction and the many difficulties involved in its interpretation. He also examines elements that complicate the interpretation of apocalyptic literature.

As with all volumes published in the BECNT series, Revelation seeks to reach a broad audience with scholarly research from a decidedly evangelical perspective.

With 869 pages this is sufficiently detailed, but not over detailed. It is highly readable, lucid and scholarly, without being boring. He does a good job comparing various other authors including Beale and Aune. Various interpretations of the difficult passages are discussed. He uses his own translation; he has useful comments on the Greek (which is transliterated). His interpretation is eclectic, meaning that he uses preterist, futurist and idealist interpretations when appropriate, he is premill on chap 20. The layout is very clear, he discusses a passage at a time, but unfortunately individual verses are not indicated. This is an excellent commentary, which is likely to become the standard evangelical commentary for students.
