Get back to the roots on Revelation
Through the centuries since its writing, the book of Revelation has captured the fascination of the Christian church. The earliest Christians were unanimous in understanding it along a premillennial view of Jesus' second coming, but other hermeneutical approaches began to emerge in the third century. These clouded, and added complexity to, the task of explaining the books meaning. For most of the Christian era, consequently, many readers have viewed this last of the NT writings as though it were hopelessly embedded in an aura of deep mystery. An avalanche of interpretive literature has evidenced remarkable interest in the books contents, but along with the interest has come widespread bewilderment.
Written especially for the informed layman, student, and scholar, this commentary seeks to clear the air. The book is interpreted according to a historical and grammatical hermeneutic and propounds a conservative, evangelical theology, but the reader will not get a narrow view on areas of disagreement. This commentary interacts with a range of major views, both evangelical and nonevangelical. It reaffirms the basic framework of eschatology espoused by ancient Christianity, but with added help from centuries of maturing thought and doctrinal progress in the Body of Christ.
All exegesis and exposition in this commentary on chapters 822 are based on the original language of the text. Translations used are those of the author, and textual criticism and word study are included where appropriate. This in-depth commentary also includes extended excursuses on important topics of theological and historical interest.
Peter Amue5 Stars Out Of 5February 20, 2007Peter AmueThomas has written an outstanding commentary on the Apocalypse. The exegesis and exposition is superb, especially excursions on important topics of historical and theological interest. The interaction with a range of major views, both evangelical and nonevangelical is helpful. The Greek, followed by the transliteration and translation opens up the book to even the layperson. Thomas deals with the various textual issues in details, clarifying the difficult passages, and complimenting them with additional notes where the need arises. This commentary should be on the shelves of all those who are interested in the study of the book of Revelation. I recommend this commentary to the scholar, pastor and even the layperson, as they will benefit from the detailed study. Purchase it even if you own all the other commentaries on Revelation, for you will not regret it.
J. Hayes5 Stars Out Of 5August 22, 2000J. HayesA very thorough handling of Revelation. Thomas gives a clear explanation of his views concerning the book's prophecies while also giving insightful comments on opposing views -- all in a spirit of charity. Sound use of Greek and very well documented!
