Expert help for understanding the Bible

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Greek transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

As the author of this commentary explains, the very first word of John's composition, "revelation," is an essential clue for the interpreter of Revelation. The primary intent of this literature is to reveal the "mysteries of God" to believers presently experiencing oppression and suffering. This commentary will help you discover the meaning behind complex ideas and images found in this last book of the Bible.
