5.0 out of 5 stars Concise explanation of the meaning of Revelation, 19 April 2010

This review is from: Revelation Unwrapped: Commentary on Revelation (Paperback)
For such a short commentary this is an excellent explanation of the book of Revelation. It treats the text as the inspired Word of God and does not ignore the plain sense meaning of the text but seeks to understand the highly symbolic nature of the book. It draws together the different themes of the book so that the reader is left feeling much more confident in understanding an individual part because it fits into a connected whole, rather trying to fit each separate event into a speculative future sequence of events. In this way the book of Revelation becomes much more directly applicable to Christians in every age rather than a text only relevant to a distant generation at the end times. I would heartily recommend this commentary to any reader who seriously wants to understand Revelation as God's Word that helps them to live as Christ's followers today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets to the heart of the book., 10 Sep 2013
By 
This review is from: Revelation Unwrapped: Commentary on Revelation (Paperback)
This little commentary on Revelation is an absolute gem. Let's get one thing clear, this is not an in-depth commentary. But what it aims to do it does very well in that it deals with each section of the book clearly and sensibly without going off into wild theories. One of the great strengths of the writing is that it takes into account the Jewish symbolism within the book and makes it very clear that people the book was written to understood it at the time. They were not scratching their heads and thinking and "well, I can't make sense of it, but I guess in 2000 years Christians will understand it a bit better." This sane and sensible approach shows that Revelation is a book of encouragement. After all the book practically starts with the words: "Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near." Read it with an open Bible and be encouraged!
