Revelation [NIVAC] written by a top evangelical NT scholar and a researcher who is second to none, Craig S. Keener, is one of the most trustworthy commentators active today. With an affinity for exhaustive work, Keener, in this instance masterfully distills a wealth of research into a compact volume that should meet the needs of all those interested in Revelation. Clearly written, with minimal technical jargon, and thoughtful analysis and application of the book, Keener's work is a monumental achievement.

Series: NIV Application Commentary
Craig S. Keener is professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary and holds a doctoral degree in New Testament Studies and the Origins of Christianity from Duke University. He is the author of several commentaries on books of the New Testament.
The NIV Application Commentary Series doesn't fool around: it gets right down to business, brining this ancient and powerful word of God into the present so that it can be heard and believed with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend's embrace.
The NIV Application Commentary Series helps pastors and Bible teachers with one the most neglected elements in good preaching--accurate, useful application. Most commentaries tell you a few things that are helpful and much that you do not need to know. By dealing with the original meaning and contemporary significance of each passage, the NIV Application Commentary Series promises to be helpful all the way around.

This series promises to become an indispensable tool for every pastor and teacher who seeks to make the Bible's timeless message speak to this generation.
Here, at last, is a commentary that makes the proper circuit from the biblical world to main street. The NIV Application Commentary is magnificent gift to the church.
College Church, Wheaton, IL
Here at last is a commentary which is not only academically well informed but which helps the contemporary reader hear God's word and consider its implications; scholarship in the service of the church.
If you want to avoid hanging applicational elephants from interpretive threads, then the NIV Application Commentary Series is for you. This series excels at both original meaning and contemporary significance. I support it one hundred percent.

It takes more than interpretation of God's word to change lives, it takes application. Application is the bottom line in teaching and preaching. Without it, we've missed the point of the Bible. The NIV Application Commentary is an outstanding resource for pastors and anyone else who is serious about developing "doers of the word".
The NIV Application Commentary Series shares the same goal that has been the passion of my own ministry--communicating God's word to a contemporary audience so that they feel the full impact of its message.
Willow Creek Community Church
This series dares to go where few scholars have gone before--into the real life world of biblical application faced by pastors and teachers everyday. This is everything a good commentary series should be.
Pastor, Wooddale Church
Some commentaries build walls that isolate you back in the ancient world. The NIV Application Commentary builds bridges that make the Bible come alive with meaning for contemporary life--and the series do so concisely, clearly, and accurately. No wasted words or academic detours--just solid help and practical truth.

Jose from Peru5 Stars Out Of 5April 11, 2001Jose from PeruI have the best and biggest commentaries on Revelation (Aune`s and Beale`s), but this one is so so good!. If you want a very good historical critical commentary,written really in simple english by a christian scholar, a commentary that thrills your heart, a commentary that makes Jesus present for you giving you His multifaceted love, this one is for you. I hope all the exegetes were like Craig Keener, and all the biblical commentaries were like this one. Buy it, and you`ll be happy.
