G. K. Chesterton once wrote, "Though St. John the Evangelist saw many strange monsters in his vision, he saw no creatures so wild as one of his own commentators." The Book of Revelation has stimulated a variety of interpretations, leaving many would-be students of this portrayal of the glory of Christ perplexed and confused. Yet in its nearly 2000 years of being read, puzzled over, and quoted in worship, four main interpretations have won the belief of most serious students. Most commentaries tend to favor the author's viewpoint and treat other views more briefly and selectively. Revelation: Four Views, in a unique and user-friendly format, is a real alternative for serious study of the Book of Revelation.
How can we understand the book of Revelation and its many interpretations? Four Views of Revelation: A Parallel Commentary covers the traditional views in an even-handed fashion. Four parallel columns present the information you need on these key views, and inform you about outstanding commentators on the book of Revelation. No other book gives such extensive coverage of how the church has understood Revelation over the centuries. The four-column format makes this an easy read for lay people, pastors, and scholars alike. This is a wonderful addition to any Bible study resource library.
