Four parallel columns present the information you need on these key views, and inform you about outstanding commentators on the book of Revelation. No other book gives such extensive coverage of how the church has understood Revelation over the centuries. The four-column format makes this an easy read for lay people, pastors, and scholars alike.

Brandon S5 Stars Out Of 5August 10, 2010Brandon SBefore 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.
Kathleen5 Stars Out Of 5July 31, 2009KathleenI 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.
Richard J Labun5 Stars Out Of 5October 7, 2008Richard J LabunEach of the four views are presented clearly, describing their unique characteristics, and even suggesting the foundations of their assumptions in a very brief, succinct manner. Good summaries of the three millennium positions are also given. This book can save you lots of time researching the interpretations of many scholars, and the bibliography identifies books for further study of any of the 4 views. I liked the impartiality shown by the editor. Reading the scripture before each view is presented, allows the reader a quick flashback to the original document (Revelation) in checking out the interpretations presented. Contrasting views within each of the 4 views aids in an overview of the problems encountered by each system of thought.
Karl Anderson5 Stars Out Of 5October 7, 2008Karl AndersonWhat I appreciated was that proponents of each view were quoted extensively, to the point that they were pretty much able to speak for themselves. I found most of the authorities cited were names I recognized and respected. He also cited a few that I recognized and considered wacky even before reading this book. But even those were allowed to speak for themselves.
