Product Description

The Book of Revelation contains some of the most difficult passages in Scripture. Grant Osborne'scommentary on Revelation aimsto interpret the text while also introducing readers to the perspectives of contemporary scholarship in a clear and accessible manner.Osborne begins with a thorough introduction to Revelation and the many difficulties involved in its interpretation. He discusses authorship, date of writing, and the social and cultural setting of the work. He also examines elements that complicate the interpretation of apocalyptic literature, including the use of symbols and figures of speech, Old Testament allusions, and the role of prophetic prediction. Osborne surveys various approaches commentators have taken on whether Revelation refers primarily to the past or to events that are yet future.Osborne avoids an overly technical interpretative approach. Rather than exegeting the text narrowly in a verse-by-verse manner, he examines larger sections in order to locate and emphasize the writer'scentral message and the theology found therein. Throughout, he interacts with the best recent scholarship and presents his conclusions in an accessible manner.When dealing with particularly problematic sections, he considers the full range of suggested interpretations and introduces the reader to a broad spectrum of commentators.

    Solid preterist perspective

    Good commentary from the preterist / futurist perspective (the author blends the two but generally prefers preterism). I found the citations in the text a bit distracting from the overall flow. Authors arguments seem to conform to his bias. Worthy addition to your library, but I prefer Beale or Stefanovic for regular use and critical thinking.

    Excellent commentary. Better than having 3 separate commentaries on Revelation. He gives the views of several scholars in passages, then, his recommendation, allowing you to decide on your own. For trivia.... pg. 456 should be "Joseph's" dreams, not Jacob's. Even great commentaries may have a flaw.

    This is the best commentary I have read on Revelation. It is scholarly but is not overly complicated. Osborne also includes his thoughts about applying the text to our lives, which is very helpful to at least think through the passages. I would highly recommend this book!

    With 869 pages this is sufficiently detailed, but not over detailed. It is highly readable and scholarly, without being boring. He does a good job comparing various other authors including Beale and Aune. Various interpretations of the difficult passages are discussed. He uses his own translation; he has useful comments on the Greek (which is transliterated). His interpretation is eclectic, meaning that he uses preterist, futurist and idealist interpretations when appropriate, he is premill on chap 20. The layout is very clear, he discusses a passage at a time, but unfortunately individual verses are not indicated. This is an excellent commentary, which is likely to become the standard evangelical commentary for students.
