The Interpretation Commentary Series is a modern treatment of the scriptures designed to help preachers better communicate the Bible. In this volume, Dr. Boring works through the book of Revelation, which has wielded enormous influence throughout the church's history---and it still has an urgently-needed message for today. Using up-to-date scholarship, Boring explores the meaning of Revelation as an example of Christian prophecy. He is not so concerned with the bizarre method of apocalyptic that he ignores its central phenomenon---that of the risen Jesus who continues to speak to his churches through the Spirit. Preachers and teachers will especially appreciate the essays on key difficulties in understanding Revelation as a Christian book. 204 Pages. Hardcover from 236 Pages. Hardcover from John Knox Press.
M. Eugene Boring is I. Wylie and Elizabeth M. Briscoe Professor Emertitus of New Testament at Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University.
