This is the only book I have ever come across to assess the Apocalypse in terms of its specific contribution as a whole to New Testament theology. i.e. its doctrine of the Trinity, of God, Christology, Pneumatology, salvation, history etc. etc. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone preaching, teaching, or seriously studying the book of Revelation. One doesn't have to agree with every detail to find it insightful, stimulating, and illuminating.

This is one of the most maddening books I've read recently. The author's work cannot be faulted (five stars for the theology); the problem lies with the editing of the book. If it is intended to be used as a textbook rather than read from cover to cover like a novel, it needs a really good index. It doesn't have one. Worse still, in my 2002 printing, there is no biblical index at all. Trying to find out what the author has to say about any particular verse or passage in Revelation is like looking for a righteous man in Babylon, or, anyway, a needle in a.... I'm sure Cambridge University Press could have done better than this, and the author deserves better from them.

Wonderful to have a book focusing on the theological message of Revelation rather than being dominated by the different ways of interpreting the book. Particularly refreshing is the emphasis on the Trinity in Revelation. His view of the book containing three genres (letter, apocalyptic and prophecy) is also helpful. I am teaching a session for lay preachers on the book of Revelation and will be using this book as a major resource. As so often with Bauckham's work he expresses himself so clearly. Excellent!

This is the most unusual book I have read for some time. The author attempts to stay within the orbit of the Bible.

This series is very mixed. Some are very good, helpful and uplifting. This is not and it fails to seriously and meaningfully address many of the issues that people have with Revelation. The congregation that had particularly asked me to research certain matters on Revelation were disappointed and not helped by Bauckham's book.

I found this book very helpful in explaining what had previously been a rather closed book to me. Useful for anyone studying the New Testament.
