About "Daniel/Revelation (Understanding The Books Of The Bible Series)"
Two of the most dramatic and mysterious books in the Bible, Daniel and Revelation disclose many of their secrets when they're understood as the special kind of writing they are. They both use a particular literary form, known as apocalyptic, to convey their message of warning and encouragement to believers in crisis situations. This study guide equips groups to read and understand this kind of writing and to appreciate the messages of Daniel and Revelation for them today. The Understanding the Books of the Bible series enables groups to take a new approach to studying the Bible together. Instead of following artificial chapter and verse divisions, these Bible study guides lead groups through whole books following their natural outlines, and pose engaging questions for discussion and personal application all along the way.
