The interpretation of the book of Revelation has always aroused controversy; and its use (and abuse) during periods of rapid change has often been a cause for great concern. Revelation is an awe-inspiring book full of both promise and doom, and readers can, to some extent, choose what they find there. In an extreme example, both the Waco and the 'Heaven's Gate' groups incorporated elements from Revelation into their own ideologies. This volume, intended for students of biblical studies, attempts a responsible reading of Revelation. Gilbert Desrosiers presents the reader with both the tools and the information required to understand the many approaches that may be taken to interpreting the book, and leads the reader towards a sound interpretation.

The Biblical Studies series has been developed for those embarking on theological and ministerial education, but it is equally valuable for those in local church positions, and for lay people confused by apparently conflicting approaches to Scripture.^The interpretation of the book of Revelation has always aroused controversy, in particular its use and abuse in periods of rapid change. Revelation is an awe-inspiring book of both promise and doom, and readers often choose to seek what they find there. The Branch Davidian (Waco) and Heaven's Gate groups both incorporated elements taken from Revelation into their ideologies.^For students of biblical studies attempting a responsible reading, interpretation is complex. This introduction presents the student with all the tools and information required for understanding the many commentaries written on the book. It focuses on the nature of hermeneutics itself and leads students to have confidence in their own interpretations.
