Product Description

The book of Revelation is at once familiar and strange, full of fearsome warning and beautiful promise. It is a letter, a prophecy, an apocalypse, and a spiral of visions, a type of ancient literature no longer written. How can Christians today understand the book of Revelation and its meaning and implications for our lives? Mark Braaten, a pastor and scholar who has spent years studying and teaching Revelation, began this book when his father asked him for a good introduction to the difficult text. Not wanting to hand his dad a complicated theological textbook or a popularized book that might misread or misapply the message of Revelation, Braaten set out to write his own guide.
This section by section commentary based on the NRSV is Braaten's response to his father's request, and it answers the many questions that arise when modern readers enter this ancient text. This book avoids complicated theological jargon and popularized misapplications of the book of Revelation.

Publisher's Description

The book of Revelation is at once familiar and strange, full of fearsome warning and beautiful promise. It is a letter, a prophecy, an apocalypse, and a spiral of Visions, a type of ancient literature no longer written. How can Christians today understand the book of Revelation and its meaning and implications for our lives? Mark Braaten, a pastor and scholar who has spent years studying and teaching Revelation, began this book when his father asked him for a good introduction to the difficult text. Not wanting to hand his dad a complicated theological textbook or a popularized book that might misread or misapply the message of Revelation, Braaten set out to write his own guide.

Come, Lord Jesus is Braaten's response to his father's request, and it answers the many questions that arise when modern readers enter this ancient text. This book avoids complicated theological jargon and popularized misapplications of the book of Revelation--and leads readers to join the holy choir in singing, Come, Lord Jesus."

Editorial Reviews

This is a good resource for parish-level Bible study groups that want to tackle this ever-relevant but often misunderstood biblical text.

The Bible Today

Come Lord Jesus is a little gem of biblical scholarship which, as promised, never forgets the pastoral context and lay audience he has in mind from the outset.
Catholic Studies

The book answers the many questions that arise when modern readers enter the ancient text: Why seven? What do the visions mean? What about evil? and many others. After finishing, readers will better understand the imagery and meaning, the first-century context in which the book was written.
Crux

In these Left Behind times, Mark Braaten’s creative and learned insights, accompanied by his down-to-earth interpretation, help the reader experience the Good News of Revelation as a book of grace, hope, and worship. This book is ideal for personal meditation and small group study across all denominational lines. The Rev. Dr. Kevin S. Kanouse Bishop Northern Texas-Nothern Louisiana Synod Dallas, Texas

Revelation may be a difficult and intimidating book, but it becomes much less so when read alongside Mark Braaten’s Come, Lord Jesus. Braaten provides a clear and informed introduction to Revelation’s mysterious visions and its statements of hope in Jesus Christ. In our current cultural environment, which is so plagued by misunderstandings and abuses of this enigmatic biblical book, Braaten’s guidance is a gift to Christians who want to understand Revelation in light of its historical context and ongoing theological relevance. He explains what Revelation meant when it was written, and why its message still matters for believers today. Braaten’s engaging style and pastoral voice allow his book to make the insights of credible biblical scholarship accessible to anyone who desires to read Revelation intelligently and faithfully.
Matthew L. Skinner, Assistant Professor of New Testament Luther Seminary

Mark Braaten writes with a deeply pastoral perspective about one of the most challenging parts of the Bible, the book of Revelation. Drawing on years of pastoral teaching, he ably leads readers through the book of Revelation, showing the richness of its meaning for its first readers and for people today. He writes clearly and accessibly, providing a reliable guide for those who know little about Revelation but have a desire to explore its riches in ways that will be important for faith and life.
Craig R. Koester, Professor of New Testament Luther Seminary
