To aid this endeavor, Patterson's Revelation in the New American Commentary series tackles the text by unpacking it pericope-by-pericope. Each pericope is easily accessible, makes arguments based on the Greek text, but presents those discussions using only the English. While the original languages are always useful, they are not necessary to access this commentary.
While primary attention is given to the text, Paige does discuss scholarly matters. These, typically, are not of the technical exegetical type but rather deal in the theology derived from the text of Revelation. Thus, Paige's work makes an exegetical argument but does so to posit a theological stance about the book while leaving room for critical interaction from the reader. Paige's work also interacts critically with historic interpreters, drawing on them were useful while discerningly avoiding overly eccentric readings of Revelation. Therefore, Patterson's work is a mid-level, non-technical commentary accessible to teaching laity, ministers, and members with some background in formal biblical studies.

In the Introduction to his commentary on Revelation, L. Paige Patterson observes the widespread neglect of this closing book of the New Testament.
"Aside from a few journal articles and fewer monographs, few homiletical adventurers have evidenced the moxie to enter the eschatological lists and take on this book in the pulpit. This remains the case even though curi- osity abounds in many congregations where parishioners fervently wish that their respective pastors would explain the book to them. Among those who embark on this adventure, most sail no further than the message to the seven churches . . . thus missing the grandeur of the promises that proliferate in chapters 4-22."
Patterson writes with the strong conviction that preachers and professors can grasp Revelation and expound it fruitfully. To that end he has writ- ten this commentary, and in doing so, interacts with a wide array of interpreters of Revelation across the centuries. The reader who follows Pattersons interpretive decisions will experience a virtual hermeneutical workshop but far more than that. He will see more clearly than ever the glory and grandeur of Jesus Christ.
