The final book of the Bible has challenged, inspired, and astonished readers for nearly 2000 years. There has been so much written about it, so many interpretations and commentaries printed, that the book of Revelation is probably the most analyzed book in all of Scripture. And yet it remains the most mysterious.
Now comes an illustrated graphic novel version of Revelation designed to give the text a visual resonance and physical vividness that makes it more real than ever before. This telling of Revelation is intended to have an immediate visceral impact, similar to the impact it would have had on its first and second century audiences, most of whom would have experienced it by hearing it told aloud. Our guide through the narrative is the apostle John, and in the book we see and hear the events channeled through his senses. His powerful descriptions have been transformed into imagery that makes the text come to life for contemporary readers.
Including a translation by Fr. Mark Arey, an adaptation by Matt Dorff, and illustrations by renowned Christian artist Chris Koelle, The Book of Revelation is a fresh way to experience the wonders of this timeless narrative. See the Lamb, the Seven-Headed Dragon and the Beast as you’ve never seen them before. This visual experience of Revelation packs an emotional wallop as it captures John’s journey from the bleakness of his Patmos island prison to the glory of the Lamb’s triumph and the joy of Jesus’s return. The Book of Revelation is a thrilling ride through ancient prophecy that will touch your heart as you discover the story of the fulfillment of John’s enduring faith set in the context of the final battle between an all-powerful God and the evil in this world.
