Excellent resource for Revelation studies 21 Jan. 2011
By Gentry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am currently working on an academic commentary on Revelation. Few books have been more valuable to my research than Penley's: I highly commend it to anyone who is engaging a serious, in-depth study of Revelation -- especially if you are approaching Revelation from an orthodox preterist perspective.

Penley provides excellent source-critical research into the background of John's imagery. Though the Old Testament is John's primary lexical and ideational source, Penley (as does L. A. Vos before him) demonstrates that Jesus's Synoptic eschatological discourses also provide an important influence on John's presentation.

Significant in his presentation is that the author allows the possibility of: (1) the second beast from the Land being a first-century Jewish religious leader; (2) the "tribes of the earth" representing the Jewish "tribes of the Land"; and (3) Babylon picturing Jerusalem. These are views I present and defind in my books Navigating the Book of Revelation and Before Jerusalem Fell: Dating the Book of Revelation, and thus find Penley's research confirmation extremely valuable. Penley's work is a serious academic book and may not be for everyone. But for anyone looking for in-depth insights into John's drama, this is an important contribution to research.

I would also recommend (for similar reasons) Edmondo F. Lupieri, A Commentary on the Apocalypse of John (Italian Texts and Studies on Religion and Society) and Eugenio Corsini, The Apocalypse: The Perennial Revelation of Jesus Christ (Good News Studies Vol. 5) (though some of Corsini's work is not helpful).
