An excellent book that takes a realistic and balanced view of each position. As a former Bible College lecturer with an MA in Biblical Studies I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to understand the positions on the book of Revelation.
Before you read a commentator's own interpretation of Revelation, read this book!As Steve Gregg points out in the intro, there are no other commentaries like this one. This book is not meant to provide specific and detailed facts about every single phrase in Revelation, but it does exactly what the author intended: compare the style and general foundations of each school of interpretation. The main idea of each interpretation is captured in the author's comments on every section of each chapter. This is the perfect intro to Revelation because it is unbiased and all 4 views are presented equally. Once you read this book you can then decide which interpretation you would like to pursue for further in-depth study by choosing a commentary devoted to that specific interpretation.
I had been looking for a book that presented the four basic views of Revelation and this book does just that. It presents the four views concisely and clearly. This is helping tremendously in our study of Revelation. I recomend it to all who want to see other views as well as the more popular ones.
