Book Description

Revelation is probably the most read, but least understood book of the Bible. History is replete with examples of how not to interpret it, and books featuring end-of-world prophecy claims based on Revelation consistently top the bestseller lists. But how can the message of such an enigmatic book be applied to our lives today?

In Discipleship on the Edge, Darrell W. Johnson drives home the challenging and practical message of Revelation in thirty carefully crafted sermons. Paying careful attention to the original context of Revelation and the circumstances surrounding its composition, Johnson shows that the book is not a "crystal ball" but rather a "discipleship manual." Thoroughly researched and yet accessible, this collection of sermons is a helpful resource for pastors and small group leaders who are looking for models to help them preach and teach the message of Revelation in a time when there is much confusion about the end times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Making Practical Sense of Revelation 22 Jun. 2008
By Wooders
This is an excellent book. If you want half baked, speculative ideas about how the world will end - then this is not the book for you!
Instead, Darrell Johnson demonstrates quite clearly how the biblical book of Revelation was written as a discipleship manual. I certainly have a better grasp of Revelation after reading Johnson's work.
One point to note is that the book is really a collection of 30 sermons. So, if you read it through from start to finish in one go, you will find that the author repeats himself on a number of occasions, as he seeks to draw out the great themes of Revelation. This can be irritating, but I think it will be very useful for future use: I'm most likely to dip in and out of various chapters, using this work as a reference guide. Because Johnson does repeat himself, I am unlikely to miss anything important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 23 April 2010
By TimBall
I love this book! Even though there is much I agree to differ with in his interpretation of the symbols and images, his drawing out of the underlying meaning and its implications are brilliant.
No other Commentary on The Revelation that I have come across, is so practical or so challenging.

This is definitely not a Dispensational view of the Church being raptured out of the world by Chapter 4 of The Revelation, nor is it a premillenial view, but it is all about the role of the Churches witness for Jesus in the face of violent opposition by the world.

My only real disappointment with this book is his Replacement Theology teaching, that the church has fully and completely replaced Israel.

However, even with this caveat, I still find it worthy of a 5 star award.

Whatever tradition you hold too, I believe that the message of this book will be of benefit to you.
