Many Christians avoid the book of Revelation. Because of its apocalyptic concerns and use of symbolism and imagery, readers often find Revelation difficult to understand. C. Freeman Sleeper offers a logical and nonthreatening way for people to study Revelation. First, Sleeper helps readers ask the basic questions. Then he goes through matters such as imagery and symbolism and their use in other literature written around the same period. Finally, he deals with difficult issues in interpretation and the implications of Revelation for Christians today. The Victorious Christ is the perfect guide for nonspecialists in search of a reliable and interesting exploration of the book of Revelation.
C. Freeman Sleeper is Professor Emeritus of Religion at Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia and Visiting Professor of New Testament at Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, Virginia.
