The Book of Revelation has always been a book of mystery and intrigue for many, and it has been interpreted as a book of doom for those who like to see predictions of the impending end of the world. But the book has a far deeper meaning for Christians caught in the midst of persecution, and we must understand and apply this meaning to our lives today. Find the answers to these questions:
- Will there be an apocalypse, and if so, when?
- What visions did John receive?
- How do we make sense of symbolic and allegorical language?
- How does lectio divina move us to pray with Scripture?

The author of the Book of Revelation, who identified himself as John, offered Christians the hope and encouragement they needed during a time of persecution by writing a book coded with signs and symbols familiar to his audience yet unfamiliar to the ruling Romans. In writing his book, John used apocalyptic images, symbols, and language. These signs or symbols must be interpreted in their proper literary form and not taken literally. They symbolize a world in spiritual, not physical, turmoil. The Book of Revelation: Hope in the Midst of Persecution attempts to break Johns code and make it understandable to the reader.
