The book of Revelation tends to both fascinate and confuse us with its vivid and strange imagery. When we turn to trusted scholars for help, the widely divergent interpretations of the book can sometimes cause us to throw our hands in the air and stop reading. Are the visions to be taken literally or symbolically? Do they depict events from the first century or are they future, just before Jesus' return?
In Revelation Verse by Verse, resepcted biblical scholar Grant R. Osborne cuts through the confusion and offers a clear exposition of the book, explaining what it meant in its first-century setting and what it means today. Instead of being a frightening or befuddling book, Osborne urges us to see Revelation as highly devotional, causing readers to focus on the sovereignty of God, the futility of Satan, and the ultimate victory of the Lamb and his saints.

In Revelation Verse by Verse, Grant R. Osborne offers a clear exposition of the book that takes seriously both its first-century context and what it means today. Where he disagrees with other interpretations of particular images, he briefly mentions them but remains focused on the text throughout. Rather than being a book that stirs up fear, Revelation is instead a hopeful and even devotional book, focused on the certainty of God's bringing his plans to completion, the futility of Satan and his plans, and the glory of the Lamb.
Revelation Verse by Verse is the first volume in the Osborne New Testament Commentaries, a new series from noted Bible scholar Grant R. Osborne directed toward pastors and committed laypeople.
