Product Description

In THE THEOLOGY OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION, RICHARD BAUCKHAM explains how the book's imagery conveyed meaning in its original context and how the book's theology is inseparable from its literary structure and composition. Revelation is seen to offer a theocentric vision of the coming of God's universal kingdom, in the context of the late first-century world dominated by Roman power and ideology. It calls on Christians to confront the political idolatries of the time and to participate in God's purpose of gathering all the nations into his kingdom. Once Revelation is properly grounded in its original context it is seen to transcend that context and speak to the contemporary church. This study concludes by highlighting Revelation's continuing relevance for today.

Publisher's Description

Richard Bauckham expounds the theology of the Book of Revelation: its understanding of God, Christ and the Spirit, the role of the Church in the world, and the hope of the coming of God's universal kingdom. Close attention is paid both to the literary form in which the theology is expressed and to the original context to which the book was addressed. Contrary to many misunderstandings of Revelation, it is shown to be one of the masterpieces of early Christian literature, with much to say to the Church today. This study offers a unique account of the theology and message of Revelation.

    The Theology of the book of Revelation

    I was extremely disappointed with this book. It was $26.99; the book is so small it should not have cost half that. Secondly, there is precious little about this book of Revelation principles and what there is could best be described as marginal. I have never wanted a refund on a book, but this one I feel deserves that buyer justice. I would highly recommend no one be duped and spend that much money on such a pitiful product. Dr. Penetcost's book, "Things to Come" is a classic on Revelation, three times (or more) pages, to say nothing of the deep understanding it affords its readers for a pittance compared to this rip off.
