Author Endorsements

“This is a novel idea and an inspired one. These charts will be invaluable to anyone studying the book of Revelation in detail.” —Richard Bauckham Professor of New Testament Studies and Bishop Wardlaw Professor, University of St. Andrews Author of The Theology of the Book of Revelation
“Wilson’s Charts on the Book of Revelation synthesizes an enormous amount of material relevant to the study of the Revelation of John and makes it available in a clear, useful, and unusual format for students of the Bible.” —David E. Aune Professor of New Testament, University of Notre Dame Author of the three-volume Revelation in the Word Biblical Commentary series
“A useful tool for teachers and a helpful guide for students to many complex and disputed issues. . . . Teachers and students from a great variety of cultural and theological backgrounds will all find that this book enhances their access to and communication of the book of Revelation.” —Adela Yarbro Collins Buckingham Professor of New Testament Criticism and Interpretation, Yale Divinity School Author of The Apocalypse and Crisis & Catharsis: The Power of the Apocalypse
“More than any book in the Bible, Revelation needs to be visualized to be understood. Charts on the Book of Revelation is a major step forward in doing just that. Every pastor and Bible teacher will benefit from using these charts in their study and as overheads when teaching and preaching through the book.” —Grant R. Osborne Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Author of Revelation in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series
“If you are looking for helpful maps and charts that are substantive and revealing in regard to the book of Revelation, look no further than Mark Wilson's excellent resources. I know of no better collection of materials that illuminates Revelation than these resources.” —Ben Witherington III Professor of New Testament Interpretation Asbury Theological Seminary Author of Revelation in the New Cambridge Bible Commentary series
“Charts on the Book of Revelation is a useful supplement to courses on the Book of Revelation in both the church and the academy. Wilson’s charts cover a range of historical, literary, rhetorical, and interpretive issues that will guide the careful student in making more viable interpretations of this difficult yet enriching book. An excellent resource to use with today’s visual learners as they approach this highly visual book for study. —Robert Walter Wall The Paul T. Walls Professor of Biblical and Wesleyan Studies Chair, Department of Christian Scriptures Seattle Pacific University Author of Revelation in the New International Biblical Commentary series
“This is an enormously helpful book, bringing together in visual form extensive comparative data both from and about Revelation. Not to be confused with prophecy charts of a bygone era, here we find charts on everything from various views of authorship and date to extensive list of scriptural allusions and verbal parallels, from John’s use of symbols and numbers to all references to angels and demons—and much else—79 in all. Each is carefully annotated with the source of the information. While the parallels are not always convincing, they always provide an interesting place to start and will save the reader much time in collecting data.” —David L. Barr Brage Golding Distinguished Professor, Wright State University Editor, Reading the Book of Revelation

    I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone who wants to study the book of Revelation.

    I don't know how a person can read the minds of most people when he says, "Most people will find the presentation disappointing." I would think the opposite is true for anyone trying to make sense of Revelation.

    The book of Revelation has so much "activity" going on and so many allusions to the Old Testament that I found it confusing to organize it in my mind. I started to make charts and was overwhelmed. Then I discovered this book.

    I think most people will find that this book is totally helpful--the references are from the Bible itself. The author is not interpreting Revelation, just organizing it so the reader does not get overwhelmed with all the interrelated information that is not in a narrative style.

    The information in the tables is interesting but difficult to verify authenticity. The presentation makes it difficult to use the information without resorting to making graphic charts from the tables. Because the tables are so difficult to verify, referencing them as a source is not practical. The "charts" (tables) are useful in research but not very useful as an end product. Some tables need some explanation to minimize the time invested in study and verification. Most people will find the presentation disappointing.
