This is a very solid tool, after 42 years in the minisry I look for materials that have a solid Doctrine and it is, the material is valueable even to the layman or deepest scholar. Easy to read and understand, I recommend this to anyone that is a student of God's Holy Word. We must remember that we won't always agree with every writer we research, but we must allow Holy Spirit to be our guide and to Interpret the Word of God for us.
Mounce has been a standard evangelical student text since the first edition in 1977 and has been my most used commentary on Revelation. This revised 1998 edition is now out of date with the publication of the huge works by Beale (1999) and Aune (1997-8). Mounce is still one of the best student texts available, but if you are on a limited budget I would go for Osborne (2002) instead, who includes Beale and Aune, and buy Mounce second-hand.
A very helpful commentary. Mounce consistently helps the reader to avoid overly allegoristic and literalistic interpretation. Mounce provides good background material, but I find his frequent allusions to mythological ideas as possible sources annoying and unhelpful. Overall, however, this is a helpful commentary and worth reading.
