Product Description

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.

Author Bio

Robert H. Mounce is president emeritus of Whitworth College, Spokane, Washington, and a noted New Testament Greek scholar.

Editorial Reviews

-- The Bible Today
"This new edition of the commentary retains the virtues of the first: a well-balanced, traditional approach to the interpretation of Revelation, with a wealth of bibliographical references and a thoughtful, well-written commentary on the literary, historical, and theological significance of the text."

-- The Clergy Journal
"This critical commentary is from the evangelical slant, meticulous at every point. . . Mounce...provides multiple interpretations of the text of Revelation. Yet he also carefully steers a middle course between wooden literalism and undomesticated subjectivism. These features give features of widely divergent theological stances room to move effectively within the commentary. . . For pastors and preachers in search of a solid critical commentary on Revelation, this one is worth the money and time spent on it."

-- Religious Studies Review
"The commentary is clearly written and argued and should be on the shelf of any serious student of Revelation."

    This is a very solid tool, after 42 years in the minisry I look for materials that have a solid Doctrine and it is, the material is valueable even to the layman or deepest scholar. Easy to read and understand, I recommend this to anyone that is a student of God's Holy Word. We must remember that we won't always agree with every writer we research, but we must allow Holy Spirit to be our guide and to Interpret the Word of God for us.

    Mounce has been a standard evangelical student text since the first edition in 1977 and has been my most used commentary on Revelation. This revised 1998 edition is now out of date with the publication of the huge works by Beale (1999) and Aune (1997-8). Mounce is still one of the best student texts available, but if you are on a limited budget I would go for Osborne (2002) instead, who includes Beale and Aune, and buy Mounce second-hand.

    A very helpful commentary. Mounce consistently helps the reader to avoid overly allegoristic and literalistic interpretation. Mounce provides good background material, but I find his frequent allusions to mythological ideas as possible sources annoying and unhelpful. Overall, however, this is a helpful commentary and worth reading.
