Westminster John Knox Press The Revelation of John, Volume 1: New Daily Study Bible [NDSB]

In this and its companion volume, William Barclay makes the most difficult book in the Bible easier to understand. In his introduction he examines areas such as the characteristics of apocalyptic literature and the nature of Caesar worship. John was, as Barclay shows, "soaked and saturated" in the Old Testament and most of the imagery he employs is drawn from that source. Barclay does more than clarify the meaning of the imagery. His commentary covers the central issues of the book, such as the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, the probably facts about John's exile on the island, and the meaning of Christ's knocking at the door.

The New Daily Study Bible allows a new generation to appreciate the wisdom of William Barclay. With clarification of less familiar illustrations and inclusion of more contemporary language, the New Daily Study Bible will continue to help individuals and groups discover what the message of the New Testament really means for their lives.

I urchased the two volumes as replacements. Barclay does a very good job of discussing apocalyptic literature, giving a rich understanding to a very mystical text.

This is a useful starter on Revelation because it supplies a lot of historical detail.It needs to be supplemented with another commentary.
