Paul Spilsbury has studied Revelation in the company of its best interpreters, those who have taken the time to enter the minds of the first-century Christians for whom it was originally written. And what he found? Within the central images of a throne, a lamb and a dragon lies the answer. The gospel clearly proclaimed. The glory of God awesomely illuminated. The work of Christ memorably embodied. The nature of evil hauntingly disclosed. Here is a guide that will help us hear Revelation speak, once again inspiring grateful worship and calling us to costly discipleship.

Review 1 for The Throne, the Lamb & the Dragon: A Reader's Guide to the Book of Revelation
A perspective that needs to be considered
Date:January 4, 2012
Location:Dawson Creek, BC
Our churches have fallen in with one line of thinking on escatology and this gives a perspective that isn't often understood. Enjoyed it and gave away copies so others will also gain from this perspective.

Review 2 for The Throne, the Lamb & the Dragon: A Reader's Guide to the Book of Revelation
Date:October 20, 2007
Paul Spilsbury, Academic Dean of the Seminary at Ambrose University College in Calgary, Alberta, has written a very helpful book for those of us raised on the old dispensational approach. His subtitle, "A Reader's Guide To the Book of Revelation," gives the sense of the purpose of the work. Spilsbury is charitable but clear, and readable but precise. This is a great place to start for those like me, who late in life came to understand that there is more than one way to understand Revalation and the end times, etc. Another strength is that the author does not come right out and name himself in one of the camps (a-mil, post-mil, pre-mil). Instead he gets into it and lets the reader gain a sense of Revelation in its own right. Not only will the reader find "The Throne, The Lamb, & The Dragon" very accessible, the Book of Revelation will become so as well. This book can help open up John's Apocalypse to many for fresh study and application.
