Product Description

Abridgment of an acclaimed scholarly commentary on the Greek text of Revelation

Providing many erudite insights into John's often perplexing apocalyptic vision, G. K. Beale's monumental New International Greek Testament Commentary volume on Revelation has been highly praised since its publication in 1999. This shorter commentary distills the superb grammatical analysis and exegesis from that tome (over 1,300 pages) into a book more accessible for pastors, students, and Christians in general.

Preserving the essential content and argument from each chapter in revised form, Beale discusses Revelation verse by verse, drawing out the book's profound truths and encouragements concerning Christian life and discipleship. Following each commentary section is a set of "Suggestions for Reflection" to help readers apply that passage in Revelation to their own lives.

Publisher's Description

G. K. Beale’s monumental New International Greek Testament Commentary volume on Revelation has been highly praised since its publication in 1999. This shorter commentary distills the superb grammatical analysis and exegesis from that tome (over 1,300 pages) into a book more accessible and pertinent to preachers, students, and general Christian readers.

As in the original commentary, Beale views Revelation as an integrated whole, as a conscious continuation of the Old Testament prophetic books, and shows that recognizing Revelation’s nearly constant use of Old Testament allusions is key to unlocking its meaning. Interspersed throughout the volume are more than sixty sets of “Suggestions for Reflection” to help readers better grasp the relevance of Revelation to their lives and our world today.

Author Bio

Dr. Gregory K. Beale is Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia.
David H. Campbell is pastor of Trinity Christian Church, Owen Sound, Ontario.

Editorial Reviews

Robert W. Yarbrough
-- Covenant Theological Seminary
"This ’shorter’ commentary (at over 500 pages) dwarfs most others -- not so much in size as in substance. Beale’s ’eclectic redemptive-historical idealist view’ opens up Revelation’s literary flow, spiritual logic, and eschatological message. At last a commentary that actually explains Revelation rather than compounding its complexity."

Thomas R. Schreiner
-- Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"In this volume we are treated to a briefer version of Greg Beale’s massive commentary on Revelation, but that work’s exegetical depth and theological profundity are still present in the abbreviated volume. No one can afford to preach, teach, or write on Revelation without reading Beale."

Reading Acts
"This shorter commentary on Revelation is a welcome contribution to the ongoing study of the book of Revelation."

New Horizons
"Beale's shorter commentary on Revelation compresses all the treasures of the parent volume in the NIGTC series into a more accessible package. Minus the small font detail, Greek words, and some supporting arguments of the larger commentary, this tightly packed work demonstrates the potency of brevity. . . . An indispensable companion to the larger commentary, offering vital aids for teachers and students alike."

Preaching
"Greg Beale has pared down his impressive 1999 Revelation commentary in the NIGTC Series withRevelation: A Shorter Commentary. Much of the technical discussion is removed, and reference is made to the English text. The significant attention to Old Testament allusions and background remain. If you do not have the larger work (or have gotten lost in it), this shorter work is a must-have."

    G. K. Beales Commentary on Revelation in the New International Greek Commentary series has been highly esteemed since it was written. Unfortunately, most pastors because of the technical format and untranslated Greek found it too difficult to use. Assisted by David H. Campbell, Beale has responded to requests to make his contribution more accessible. This volume has succeeded on that score and becomes a lively read.

    I should disclose that I subscribe to a premillennial interpretation rather than his eclectic, redemptive-historical idealist view. Though he is a brilliant author, and knows something about arguing well for his position, he in my opinion too casually addressed those of my persuasion by quoting the most radical he could find in our world. On page 22, he beautifully listed the reasons futurists hold the positions they do, but does not do as well countering them. In fairness to him, my bias may have been at work.

    Whether I agreed or not on his overall prophetic approach, I must confess I learned much as I read. He is adept at seeing what is therewords, repetitions, and parallels. His Introduction was given in 34 pages and was outstanding.

    Im glad to have this volume for my studies as he has insights on every page. Like me, you might not agree with everything he says, but you will be enriched for having read it. Im a pastor who doesnt want all my commentaries on Revelation to agree with me.

    This volume will be a go-to commentary on technical issues, but is far easier to read than the others I have used. This commentary is a solid effort.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
