Overview

Is the Book of Revelation the biblical book for the twentieth-first century due to the growing interest in apocalyptic? A fresh approach is needed to help access its symbolic mysteries. The Apocalyptic Heart takes its inspiration from the lived faith of refugee communities and the Orthodox Church and makes Revelation's message of victory and the restoration of justice vital for today.
