Product Description

Reading the book of Revelation is a wide-ranging introductionto the interpretation of the Apocalypse. Each chapter provides an overallreading of Revelation that grows out of a particular methodological approach. The primary approaches include historical, literary, and social analysis, which are then used in combination with other reading strategies, including social-conflict theory, philosophy, women's studies, ethics, history of religions, postcolonial studies and popular culture. Each of the essays focuses on a specific text from Revelation and shows how the method used helps interpret that text and how diverse methods produce divergent readings of a text.
