Triumph of the Lamb: A Commentary on Revelation

Stock No: WW522009


Product Description

The book of Revelation by its very name, is an unveiling, a vivid disclosure of invisible realities. And yet, confronted with bizarre imagery that is alien to our experience, we are often left asking, "What in the world does this book mean?" In this section-by-section commentary, Dennis E. Johnson deftly guides us through questions about how to interpret Revelation, what kind of literature it is, what it meant to its original audience, and how it equips us today for spiritual warfare. Describing Revelation as "a book of symbols in motion" and "a book permeated by worship," Johnson gives special attention to the Old Testament background of John's pictorial vocabulary and how vision-cycles structure the Apocalypse. He casts light on the historical, religious, and cultural contents of John's first hearers in Asic Minor, a church under attack. The central themes of Revelation emerge to fill out our vision of Christ's triumph over the enemy.

Publisher's Description

The book of Revelation is an unveiling, a vivid disclosure of invisible realities. Yet its bizarre imagery often leaves us puzzled. Dennis E. Johnson deftly guides us through questions about how to interpret Revelation, what it meant to its original audience, and how it equips us today. He explains that Revelation fortifies the church against the Enemy's wiles by disclosing the profound paradoxes of Christ’s victory and glory. The central themes of Revelation converge with Christ’s triumph over the Enemy.

He and his wife, Jane, live in Dayton, Tennessee.

Editorial Reviews

The strength of this work is the way it takes some of the best material on the interpretation of apocalyptic generally, and Revelation in particular, and presents it in a palatable, readable form. Johnson knows how to write, and his text is infused with a rare sanity.
Johnson writes with masterful skill without losing the reader down exegetical rabbit trails. Triumph of the Lamb is essential reading on Revelation from a man with unique qualifications as a well-loved pastor, New Testament scholar, and now professor of practical theology. This book is itself a triumph.
Sophisticated but readable, methodically astute but eminently practical. This patient and sane book is an excellent guide for readers who find Revelation attractive but frightening, and for teachers who wish to share its treasures with their people.
Reading Dennis Johnson’s commentary one senses the steady, guiding hand of a master exegete, but also the benevolent touch of a caring pastor. Here is a scholar who is able to make the sometimes perplexing images of Revelation understandable and etch them memorably on the hearts of believers. The commentary is marked by faithful exposition, clear and engaging communication, and graciousness in treating the views of other interpreters. Johnson shows in a compelling way how the message of revelation is essential to the church here and now.
