    THE NAME OF THE VARIOUS BOOKS OUT ON THE MARKET FOR "DUMMIES" CAN TEND TO MAKE ONE FEEL LESS EDUCATED. THIS BOOK IS PACKED WITH FACTS/INFORMATION AND MAKES REVELATION MUCH EASIER TO UNDERSTAND. MOST OF YOU WILL BE IMPRESSED WITH THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS BOOK. I WAS VERY SURPRISED AND THRILLED, AND MANY OF YOU WILL BE AS WELL! I AM VERY GLAD THAT I PURCHASED THIS GREAT RESOURCE.

    I'm a youth pastor and was looking for something to help me teach Revelations to my teens. This book has been invaluable, and just puts everything in its simplest form. Great read for someone new to Revelations or someone looking for a simple way to explain it. Highly recomend.
