    No matter how often one reads the book of Revelation you gain new insight. And if you have read the book you will agree that it is a difficult book to understand. After a lifetime of study you will not have reached the depths that are found in it. To aid us in our journey many men and women have written commentaries giving their views on this wonderful book God has given us. Some commentaries are great (see my review of one here) and some not so much (my review of one here). In this post I will review a commentary by Mark Brighton on Revelation that is thankfully very good.

    Brighton spends the first 36 pages giving us invaluable background on the author, setting, purpose, etc. of Revelation. You can get this with any commentary but this one stands out. Brighton writes in such an engaging way that it seems fresh and new, even if you knew that information already.

    In this introduction he gives us some reasons why Revelation is so difficult to understand which is very interesting to read.

    Each chapter or group of chapters has introductions to give us the big picture. This is important so that we won't take verses out of the larger context of the book. Then at the end of those chapters or smaller sections in a chapter there is a section called Devotion and Prayer. In these he gives a typical devotion and then a prayer to pray concerning those verses.

    What stood out to me from the start was how Brighton was able to say so much using so very little words. In giving commentary on most every verse he keeps his words short but powerful. You get a full sense of the text with so little reading. A concept other commentators could learn. He doesn't shy away from "big" words and concepts but that isn't a problem because he explains them in such a way that you will easily understand. There is also a glossary that gives the definitions of some of the technical terms used throughout the book.

    When Brighton gets to chapter four he takes four pages to explain the dispensation premillennialism view, an enlightening read. This is another great aspect to his commentary, in discussing those topics that are controversial (rapture and millennial views) he gives all the positions and basically lets the reader determine their view. He does go against the dispensational view throughout the text, but most other topics he lets us decide.

    The only thing I felt was lacking was an at length discussion on what is called the Great White Throne Judgment in Revelation 20:11-15. Such a wonderful and important text I felt should have had more discussion. But I may be nit picking.

    Concordia Publishing House has released a series of commentaries called the Reformation Heritage Bible Commentaries. This is the first commentary that I have read from that series and it is wonderful. I will use it often. If this is any indicator of how good the series will be then I plan on getting others.
