Thomas 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.
