Product Description

The Revelation to John by Stephen Smalley is a magisterial interpretation of John's Apocalypse as a grand drama, which can only be properly understood in light of John's Gospel and letters and in the context of the Johannine community.

As such, it offers the reader a significantly different approach to this enigmatic text than that offered by most contemporary commentaries. Working directly from the Greek text, Smalley offers a masterful analysis of the critical and literary dimensions of the Apocalypse for students and scholars alike.

Contents include:
  • an in-depth, critical analysis of the Greek text of Revelation
  • a wealth of scholarly interaction with other commentaries and interpretations of Revelation
  • a canonical assessment of Revelation in light of other Johannine texts
  • a historical understanding of Revelation in the context of the Johannine community
  • an interpretation of Revelation as cosmic drama
Here is a fresh contribution to the scholarly study of this captivating but often perplexing book of the Bible. Smalley demonstrates that the Apocalypse speaks directly to any situation in any age and offers a portrait of God's loving justice that is relevant to our own society.
