Liturgical Press Come, Lord Jesus: A Study of Revelation

The book of Revelation is at once familiar and strange, full of fearsome warning and beautiful promise. It is a letter, a prophecy, an apocalypse, and a spiral of visions, a type of ancient literature no longer written. How can Christians today understand the book of Revelation and its meaning and implications for our lives? Mark Braaten, a pastor and scholar who has spent years studying and teaching Revelation, began this book when his father asked him for a good introduction to the difficult text. Not wanting to hand his dad a complicated theological textbook or a popularized book that might misread or misapply the message of Revelation, Braaten set out to write his own guide.

This section by section commentary based on the NRSV is Braaten's response to his father's request, and it answers the many questions that arise when modern readers enter this ancient text. This book avoids complicated theological jargon and popularized misapplications of the book of Revelation.

A most interesting coverage of Revelation. Written so the common person can understand and have a better grasp of this particular and important book of the Bible.
