Publisher's Description

Intriguing and endlessly contentious ideas and images of apocalyptic measure come together in the book of Revelation. It is a rich and hermeneutically complicated Scripture that, unsurprisingly, has no universally accepted interpretation. "Reading Revelation" compares these four major approaches to Revelation by laying out the different interpretive translations provided by each school of thought in parallel columns.

    “Reading Revelation” is an academic comparison of four interpretive translations of the apocalypse. C. Marvin Pate, professor of biblical studies, author, and editor combines material adapted from the work of Steve Gregg in his four-view parallel commentary, and from his own book, “Four Views on the Book of Revelation” as well as the work his collaboration with of J. Daniel Hays, J. Scott Duvall, “The Dictionary of Biblical Prophecy and End Times” both published by Zondervan.

    An interlinear Greek text and English translation accompany the verse by verse comparison of the four schools of interpretation presented in parallel columns.

    • The Preterist Interpretation
    • The Historical Interpretation
    • The Idealist Interpretation
    • The Futurist Interpretation

    A summary of each interpretation is presented in a comprehensive introduction to the study. Both the similarities and the differences of the four viewpoints are highlighted within the text to guide the reader in their personal study and analysis.

    “Reading Revelation: A Comparison of Four Interpretive Translations of the Apocalypse” provides pastors, serious Bible scholars, Adult Bible Class teachers, an amazing resource tool for studying and teaching the complex book of Revelation. As a layman, myself, I have gained new insights and a better understanding into the background and reasons behind the various interpretations of the book of Revelation.

    A complimentary copy of the book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

    Reading Revelation: A Comparison of Four Interpretive Translations of the Apocalypse is a very interesting book. I have read a number of books on Revelation but this is the first one I have seen that takes four different viewpoints and puts them side by side.

    I think this would be a great book to use for personal or group studies. Looking at it as a tool for a study group to use, I found it to be helpful in answering questions I had. It was interesting to see how the different "translations" corresponded with one another.

    As a topic question, I wanted to know how dramatic it would be if the second coming of Christ all ready happened at the fall of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. After reading this chapter in the four interpretive translations, I believe it would be very dramatic if the seconding coming of Christ has already happened. For one thing, the world has yet to experience the Great Tribulation. I think the second coming of Christ is something yet to be fulfilled. I also think the fall of Jerusalem was important because it caused the Jewish people who believed in Christ to scatter and share the gospel in all of the world. The second coming of Christ is an important event in the life of believing Jews and Christians alike. It is then all who have died for their faith will see the King of kings ride in triumph and finally destroy His enemies, including the beast and false prophet.

    Reading Revelation is a tool not to be used lightly, but one to help anyone studying Revelation get a better grasp and understanding of this very rich letter.

    "Reading Revelation" by C.Marvin Pate is a comparison of four interpretive translations of the book of Revelation. I really wasn't sure what to expect when I received this book but was pleasantly surprised at the layout. It is written in five parallel columns, the first column is the Greek text and English translation of each verse, the second column is the Pretest view of said verse, the third column is the historical view, the fourth column is the futurist view and the fifth column is the idealist view. Because the book is read across, it makes it easy to compare the scriptures, but I found myself folding the cover back and wonder how long the binding would last. I really think since it needs to be read across the book would benefit greatly by having a spiral binding. That would really be my only complaint of the book.
    This book would be perfect for anyone who might be studying Revelation and wants to explore the different viewpoints. I will certainly turn to this book anytime I am reading Revelation.

    A copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    This is an awesome way to show how the views of Revelation differ. It must have taken the author many, many hours to put this together. Great book to have in your library, Bible students!
