In this revised edition of the classic 1977 work The Book of Revelation [NICNT], based on theNestle-Aland Greek New Testament, Mounce has expands his work to reflect more than twenty additional years of working with Revelation, its text, and the scholarship that surrounds it. Mounce's greatest strength is interacting with, unpacking, and evaluating the various theories, studies, and interpretations given by scholars to apocalyptic literature generally, and to Revelation specifically.
And, as we all know, theories surrounding this enigmatic book abound, and often prove detrimental to the Christian faith. What is needed is a responsible guide that can steer through unexpected grounds, and navigate us to sound waters and faithful interpretation that takes divine revelation seriously, the limits of human knowledge seriously, as well as the Biblical text and the history that surrounds it. Mounce is that guide.
