Excellent Book on the Bible's Last Book
April 17, 2013
As someone who has been interested in the book of Revelation for many years, I have acquired, over the years, many books about the Bible's last book; however, most of them remain unread. However, I recently obtained this book, because of my continuing interest in Bible prophecy, in general; and the book of Revelation, in particular. I have not been disappointed!
This book is excellent!! If you have ever wondered about the last book of the Bible and/or been fascinated by it, as I have, then you MUST get this book! Mark Hitchcock earned his Ph.D at Dallas Theological Seminary, and is the senior pastor of Faith Bible Church in Edmund, OK. He did his doctoral dissertation at the seminary on a particular aspect of the book of Revelation, and has done a lot of study on it, as is evident from reading this book. Although Dr. Hitchcock has written a number of books on the subject of Bible prophecy, this one is specifically on the book of Revelation. If you have ever wondered about "the mark of the beast;" or who the Nicolaitans were; or how to understand the seven churches in chapters 2-3 of Revelation; or many other things about the book; then you will appreciate this gem of a book. Although this very helpful resource on Revelation is scholarly, it is also very readable, and is written in a very orderly and logical fashion--discussing the book's interpretation and background first; and then, going section-by-section through the book sequentially, addressing specific questions about various things in the book of Revelation. Dr. Hitchcock is a very gifted teacher, as this book makes clear. I can't recommend it too highly, and I pray God will give it the wide circulation it so richly deserves!
