Publisher's Description

This book is the first of its kind: an innovative socio-rhetorical commentary on the Book of Revelation. Without sacrificing scholarly perspective or academic rigor, it is written to be accessible for a wide audience--including pastors, scholars, teachers, seminarians, and interested lay people. A "Suggested Reading List"--a feature of all volumes in the New Cambridge Bible Commentary--will serve as point of entry for the new serious student of Revelation and as a helpful annotated bibliography for all readers. Frequent "Closer-Look" sections examine key elements of the Roman-Greco world that bear on the text's meaning while "Bridging the Horizons" sub-chapters connect this world with the cultural, political, and religious environments of today. The entire NRSV translation is provided throughout the text as a convenience to the reader. Award-winning author Ben Witherington III brings a New Testament scholar's insight to the often opaque passages of the last book of the New Testament.

    This review was written for Revelation.
    Just when you thought Ben Witherington was taking a respite from writing commentaries, he was busy working on the Revelation! This is another brilliantly written commentary. Brilliant because of the careful exegesis, readable prose, insightful background research, helpful excursuses, and meaningful application. This work is one of the finest on Revelation. I only wish the hardback edition were more reasonably priced. However, this paperback edition is sturdy and attractive. A must have addition to your commentary library!
