HASH(0x8d7ccc30) out of 5 stars Demystifying an Often Confusing Text 30 May 2006
By Carol Blank - Published on
Format: Paperback
Cory, who chairs the theology department of the University of Saint Thomas, stresses in her introduction that the Book of Revelation, like all of Scripture, can be properly understood only in relation to its social and historical context. She cautions against viewing Revelation as a timeline useful in preparing for the end of the world, or a "war manual" applicable to the battle between righteous and evil forces. Instead, we can find in Revelation a challenge to embrace right behavior in our everyday lives. She proceeds through a verse-by-verse examination to demystify this often disturbing and confusing text.

Her early explanation of the symbolic numbers and colors in the Book of Revelation prepares us to understand their intended significance as they are presented in the series of visions that make up the text. She also highlights patterns of the number seven in Revelation, as in the visions of last things in chapters 19 and 20. Returning to the caution against literal interpretation, Cory points out that the end-times visions are presented in "highly mythical language," that calls for symbolic, rather than historical, interpretation. "However, the message is clear: God is just and God is sovereign. God will indeed vindicate the righteous and punish the wicked."

This work, as others in the New Collegeville Bible Commentary series, is designed with the reading, with boldface subheadings, running across the top of each page, and the commentary, with related bold headings, printed below. Discussion questions and a map of the Seven Churches of Revelation are provided.

HASH(0x8e1619f0) out of 5 stars Excellent study on the Book of Revelation 13 Feb. 2014
By Nana - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the third time I have used this book and accompanying study questions (a separate book). We already have the audio commentary at our church, so for the newer members of the group, we are repeating the class. While the publisher suggests this takes 7 weeks, we have found that closer to 12 weeks is more appropriate for us.

I have used this book for bible study and it has been a big help. It's easy to understand and has been very helpful. I would recommend it as a supplement to use in your study of Revelation.
