The degree to which the Tyndale New Testament Commentary series fulfills its stated goal, "to help the non-technical reader to understand his Bible better" has been shown uniformly excellent throughout the series. Despite being non-technical commentaries, Tyndale Commentaries are nevertheless exegetical and discuss the major issues that scholars are concerned with in ordinary language.Until his passing in 2006, Leon Morris was one the most respected names in New Testament scholarship. His many commentaries encompass every genre in the New Testament, and testify to a life of learning and faithful study of Scripture. Morris' style is perfect for anyone who wants to learn about the Bible, and his abilities to explain and elucidate are particularly brilliant in the Tyndale series. Revelation is a notoriously intimidating and difficult book, but Morris brings its concepts down to earth and roots the understanding of the reader in the book original context, and explains its enigmatic elements from that base. This commentary is one of Morris' best and once read you will never see Revelation the same way again.

"The book of Revelation is, I fear, a very neglected book. Its symbolism belongs to the first century, not to our own age," says Leon Morris in the preface to his commentary on Revelation. Here he explains the significance of the symbolism and shows the bearing of the message of Revelation on the problems of the day in which it was written. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series. The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament. These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.
