Most often when we come to the Apostle John's great enigmatic work Revelation we think of end times, cataclysm, heavenly wars, and the destruction of the world. Perhaps there is something more? What about a story? That is, after all, what John is doing--telling us a story. He is giving us a narrative, a description of what he sees, and that is what John is after all--a master theologian who encapsulates truth and meaning in stories. Read his Gospel lately? Here James L. Resseguie treats John in just that way, a storyteller describing the unimaginable events of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. He wants us to hear what John heard, see what he saw, and feel as he did. Perhaps understanding Revelation as a story will help us sort through the enigmatic and cumbersome book that has baffled scholars, churchmen, and everyone else for over a thousand years.
