Product Description

Paul Spilsbury has studied Revelation in the company of its best interpreters, those who have taken the time to enter the minds of the first-century Christians for whom it was originally written. And what he found? Within the central images of a throne, a lamb and a dragon lies the answer. The gospel clearly proclaimed. The glory of God awesomely illuminated. The work of Christ memorably embodied. The nature of evil hauntingly disclosed. Here is a guide that will help us hear Revelation speak, once again inspiring grateful worship and calling us to costly discipleship.

Publisher's Description

The book of Revelation has long intrigued, puzzled and even frightened its readers. Surely it is the most misunderstood book in the Bible. And some faulty interpretations of Revelation are so entrenched in the consciousness of Christians that they are regarded as "gospel truth" and provide riveting plot lines for end-time fiction. But behind the ancient multimedia show that is Revelation lies a message both simple and profound. It is told in a language and grammar of faith that was clearly understood by its first Christian audience. Much as a music video would scarcely have been understood by first-century citizens, though it is immediately understood by youthful audiences today, so we are puzzled by and misread Revelation. Paul Spilsbury has studied Revelation in the company of its best interpreters, those who have taken the time to enter the minds of the first-century Christians for whom it was originally written. And what has he found? Within the central images of a throne, a lamb and a dragon lies the answer--
  • the gospel clearly proclaimed
  • the glory of God awesomely illumined
  • the work of Christ memorably embodied
  • the nature of evil hauntingly disclosed
Here is a guide that will help us hear Revelation speak, once again inspiring grateful worship and calling us to costly discipleship.

    A perspective that needs to be considered

    Our churches have fallen in with one line of thinking on escatology and this gives a perspective that isn't often understood. Enjoyed it and gave away copies so others will also gain from this perspective.

    Paul Spilsbury, Academic Dean of the Seminary at Ambrose University College in Calgary, Alberta, has written a very helpful book for those of us raised on the old dispensational approach. His subtitle, "A Reader's Guide To the Book of Revelation," gives the sense of the purpose of the work. Spilsbury is charitable but clear, and readable but precise. This is a great place to start for those like me, who late in life came to understand that there is more than one way to understand Revalation and the end times, etc. Another strength is that the author does not come right out and name himself in one of the camps (a-mil, post-mil, pre-mil). Instead he gets into it and lets the reader gain a sense of Revelation in its own right. Not only will the reader find "The Throne, The Lamb, & The Dragon" very accessible, the Book of Revelation will become so as well. This book can help open up John's Apocalypse to many for fresh study and application.
