Four Keys for Seeing the Book of Revelation As a Book of Revelation
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Format: Paperback Verified Purchase. Great book. For such a short commentary this is an excellent explanation of the book of Revelation.
Revelation 1 – Introduction; A Vision of Jesus
It treats the text as the inspired Word of God and does not ignore the plain sense meaning of the text but seeks to understand the highly symbolic nature of the book. It draws together the different themes of the book so that the reader is left feeling much more confident in understanding an individual part because it fits into a connected whole, rather trying to fit each separate event into a speculative future sequence of events.
In this way the book of Revelation becomes much more directly applicable to Christians in every age rather than a text only relevant to a distant generation at the end times. I would heartily recommend this commentary to any reader who seriously wants to understand Revelation as God's Word that helps them to live as Christ's followers today. Format: Paperback. This little commentary on Revelation is an absolute gem. Let's get one thing clear, this is not an in-depth commentary.
Featured Verse Topics
But what it aims to do it does very well in that it deals with each section of the book clearly and sensibly without going off into wild theories. One of the great strengths of the writing is that it takes into account the Jewish symbolism within the book and makes it very clear that people the book was written to understood it at the time.

The US version has an introduction by Kathleen Norris. Will Self probably wrote an interesting introduction, Kathleen Norris on the other hand wrote some liberal apologist dribble, telling 'the poets' to take back this loving book from the hands of fundamentalists. Sadly Kathleen Norris is going to be burning in hell for her view of Revelations, "And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
In other words you can't just take the good and leave the bad, for that your own book of life is going to be messed with by the big G, and you'll burn in a lake of fire. It's ok though, you'll be joined by Jenkins and Lahaye, co-authors of the Left Behind series, who have also done a number of cherry picking from this book.
This is one of the little pleasures of life, finding literal bible passages that send people who make their living off of religion to burn for eternity. It makes that really slim chance that there is an afterlife, and that I will be spending it burning in hell for my views seem worth it; to see those self-righteous fucks be tortured for eternity.
Good for you, you're saved, your name is in the book of life, mine isn't, now leave me alone nothing can possibly change: "and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but it sounds like pretty hard determinism to me, you're name is in the book at the start of the world or it's not, if it's not then you are going to be down with the beast, and thus burn forever.
This does not logically effect point number 1, my name is not in the book of life, so please stop bothering me, but just because your name is in the book of life there are still lots of things that can get your name taken out, the big ones being changing the word of G for your own purposes. This seems to involve pre-end of the world at least , a lot of sitting around God while four beasts continuously sing praise to him. Each time the beasts get to the end of their praise everyone kneels down and praises God, and then the beasts start again.
The silliness of the praising continues throughout the book, God is praised after awful things he sends down on to the world, and his omnipotence is praised, I get maybe being marveled the first time he does some of his crazy Dungeon Master shit, but after awhile it's got to get old. For example, you're hanging out with some guy who can shoot a basketball from full court and make the shot every time.

- The Revelation to John: A Commentary on the Greek Text of the Apocalypse.
The first time you see it, you'll probably think that is pretty amazing, and maybe the next ten times you'll think it's still pretty awesome, but then he tells you that it's physically impossible for him to miss and he keeps showing you how he can make the shot. After awhile you just aren't impressed anymore. It would be like being impressed because I can beat up a five year old. Of course I can, I'm God like in my size and strength compared to a five year old. If anything you'd look at me like I was some kind of deranged lunatic, especially if while I was doing it I was expecting everyone to praise me for how great I was at kicking this kids ass.
Now, assume that for some reason this little shit of a five year old really needed to have his ass kicked by me. I don't know why, but assume it. He needs to be knocked unconscious. He's little, I'm big, I could probably hit him once and knock him out; but instead I torture him. I break his little fingers, I burn him with things, I hang him out in the sun with nothing to drink for a couple of days while making sure he stays conscious by shocking him with electricity every few seconds, and then I bring him back in, give him bad water to drink, burn him some more, until finally after doing this shit to him for awhile I fill the bathtub up with gasoline throw him in it and then light it on fire.
After each added cruelty am I deserving of praise, and deserve to be told that I am just?
The Revelation to John: A Commentary on the Greek Text of the Apocalypse
Just asking. It's not a nice book. It's a sadistic fantasy about getting back at ones enemies. It does sum up nicely the persecution fantasies of the religious right in this country though, if you can't paint yourself as a martyr then none of the totally awesome death and destruction of Revelation can be brought down upon your enemies.
I was going to give this three stars, but then I saw that everyone who rated this gave it five, so I'll give it two stars: it really only deserves one, since it's basically a crazed manual for revenge with some gnostic mysticism thrown in see the woman giving birth to the man child before the start of the world for example ; but for giving me a new textual support for Jenkins and Lahaye's eternal damnation the book deserves an extra star.
And every time the line from Heathers about having a sword fight in one of the Heathers' mouth ran through my head.

WrensReads Review: Sidenote : The reason for such vague and short and "eh" words on each of these books, is because I wasn't challenging the study of the Bible when I read these. I was challenging myself to read the whole Bible in a year because I knew it would be discipline to keep at it daily. I do, however, plan to pick up a book and study what it is saying. Those will be longer reads and more notes.
So here is my review from my "Read the Bible in a Year" challenge.
