For centuries, readers have puzzled over John's Revelation, the hardest and strangest book of the New Testament. Today, many avoid the Apocalypse as a hopeless maze of rabbit trails, pitfalls, and dead ends. Others are driven to frenzy by its visions of cataclysmic destruction and unimaginable suffering. But an unsatisfied few seek better answers. The Apocalyptic Gospel: Mystery, Revelation, and Common Sense provides reasonable, biblical solutions to many of the longstanding puzzles and enigmas in the Johannine Apocalypse, and invites Christians to rediscover the crucified Christ at the heart of Armageddon. Written for an ecumenical and interdenominational audience, The Apocalyptic Gospel draws on a wide range of ancient and modern authorities. It offers readers a more-fruitful Christian eschatology, one that realizes all things in the life, death, and resurrection of a Galilean prophet from Nazareth. "Justin Staller's case for understanding the Book of Revelation as a fifth canonical gospel is utterly compelling and brings not only a unity to the early church witness but also a riveting reading of the prophet John's apocalypse." -Dr. Jim Lawrence "In an age where it is easier to speak certitudes despite the ambiguities of biblical texts; in an age where it is easier to track imaginary zombies in a post-apocalyptic world, Justin Staller gives us an opportunity to think and ponder and meditate upon texts that are terrifying because they mirror back to us our own fears, insecurities, and confusion about what is real and what is true." - Rev. Barbara J. Essex
