Overview

Revelation by Joseph L. Mangina

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Revelation, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church--providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups--and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.

Praise for Revelation in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

"Joseph Mangina has sat patiently with every twist and turn in the Apocalypse. Drawing on conversation partners as diverse as Tolkien, Dylan, and Bonhoeffer, Mangina has produced a fine, rich commentary, one that not only instructs us about the Apocalypse but also urges us to listen to this vision as never before."--Beverly Roberts Gaventa, Princeton Theological Seminary

"We have many splendid commentaries already on Revelation--do we need another one? Mangina's fine work elicits an emphatic 'yes!' His wide-ranging literary imagination and deep grounding in the apocalyptic worldview of New Testament theology has resulted in an astonishingly fresh presentation. This superb commentary will stimulate the best thinking of preachers and pastors, especially those who take a lively interest in the intersection of biblical theology and geopolitics. Highly recommended."--Fleming Rutledge, author of The Bible and the New York Times and The Undoing of Death
