Product Description

From fiction to more serious writings, sensationalism is playing havoc with the church's traditional understanding of Revelation. In eight 13- to 17-minute sessions, respected Greek and New Testament scholar Bruce Metzger introduces you to the book's imagery and symbolism in nonacademic language---and offers insights for a balanced interpretation. Includes 112-page softcover book, DVD, and leader's guide.

    I am actually considering not having my bible study continue with the DVD. Speaker is very dry. If you are a Andy Stanley or beth moore fan you will be somewhat disappointed.

    The book and video are closely matched and the repetition is excellent for learning. The topic is interesting and Dr. Metzger does a wonderful job with the video, the book and the leader guide. The group likes it very much as well.

    Very comprehensive package. I did not realize the Participants Guide was also included and made the additional purchase.

    Our Sunday School class (mostly college educated and 40-55 year olds),led by my lawyer husband did this awesome study because he is apprehensive of leading the book of Relevation. We were all enthralled. Bruce Metzger will remind you of the guy who hosted "Wild Kingdom". His calm, resonable demeanor helps balance the tramatic, and unworldly events that John reveals. We would love to see another B. Metzger study. MY husband didn't think the leader's guide was too helpful.

    Dr. Metzger provides an erudite and calm explanation of many of the features in John's Revelation from what I would describe as an amillenialist viewpoint. It avoids hysterical interpretations and effectively supports a main idea of Revelation as "trust God, not the government or any other man-made institution" with all the comfort that gives. The DVD is primarily Dr. Metzger quoting the book. Dr. Metzger inspires me to dig into the Old Testament references that he notes as background for John's images.
