Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
There are many medium length commentaries on Revelation, most of them are OK as far as it goes and this is one of them. He comments on a word or a phrase at a time and it appears to be a set of notes for his class on Revelation or a set of notes for a full length commentary he did not complete. He also introduces each passage he is about to discuss. The commentary is not really a starter for the student, his introduction is patchy, and the commentary is not full enough to be a main commentary for the student. However, he has clearly thought through Revelation and his comments are usually appropriate and frequently helpful. He writes from his own perspective and the commentaries he had available in 1979. He includes liturgical aspects of Revelation which can be helpful at times. His comments on the Greek are useful, for example, when the dragon `pursued' the woman in ch12, it can also mean `persecuted'. The commentary is worth getting if you have the main commentaries on Revelation and already have a good working knowledge of the book. J. P. M. Sweet is Chaplain and Fellow of Selwyn College, Cambridge.

Note: Among 7 recent scholarly commentaries on Revelation Sweet is the tenth most cited author.

For a full length commentary try Mounce The Book of Revelation (New International Commentary on the New Testament) or Osborne Revelation (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament)
