Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. A Commentary on the Revelation of John

This scholarly and comprehensive exposition of Revelation is written in the language of the layperson, making this the ideal resource for the pulpit, classroom, or personal study. The verse-by-verse commentary follows a brief discussion of authorship, date, setting, structure, and various methods of interpretation (Preterist, Historical, Idealist, and Futurist). It also includes an analytical outline on the Revelation of John. This is a highly readable look at one theBible's most difficult books.

George Ladd was a New Testament scholarat Fuller Seminary in Calfornia. This commentary was written back in 1972 whenthe craze for Hal Lindsey books was ridinghigh. Ladd wrote this commentary on Revelation for laymen so that they couldread and understand the book of Revelationwithout the Dispensational perspective. Laddis Pre-Millennial but he is definitelyPost-Tribulational on the Rapture issue.Ladd has done a good job of making hispostion of Historical Pre-Millennial in the book of Revleation clear for the lay-reader.

The description above says it all. It is written for the lay person by a scholar and could be a useful starter for the student. It is verse by verse with the key text in bold. It blends the preterist and futurist interpretative methods; in other words the beast is both Rome and the eschatological antichrist. The great tribulation is also primarily a future eschatological event, but includes all of the tribulation, which the church experiences. It gives a readable conservative interpretation that avoids the hype of some popular views. It is 308 pages.
