The final book of the Bible, Revelation prophesies the ultimate judgement of mankind in a series of allegorical visions, grisly images and numerological predictions. According to these, empires will fall, the "Beast" will be destroyed and Christ will rule a new Jerusalem. With an introduction by Will Self.
|Author||: Elaine Pagels|
A startling exploration of the history of the most controversial book of the Bible, by the bestselling author of Beyond Belief. Through the bestselling books of Elaine Pagels, thousands of readers have come to know and treasure the suppressed biblical texts known as the Gnostic Gospels. As one of the world's foremost religion scholars, she has been a pioneer in interpreting these books and illuminating their place in the early history of Christianity. Her new book, however, tackles a text that is firmly, dramatically within the New Testament canon: The Book of Revelation, the surreal apocalyptic vision of the end of the world . . . or is it? In this startling and timely book, Pagels returns The Book of Revelation to its historical origin, written as its author John of Patmos took aim at the Roman Empire after what is now known as "the Jewish War," in 66 CE. Militant Jews in Jerusalem, fired with religious fervor, waged an all-out war against Rome's occupation of Judea and their defeat resulted in the desecration of Jerusalem and its Great Temple. Pagels persuasively interprets Revelation as a scathing attack on the decadence of Rome. Soon after, however, a new sect known as "Christians" seized on John's text as a weapon against heresy and infidels of all kinds-Jews, even Christians who dissented from their increasingly rigid doctrines and hierarchies. In a time when global religious violence surges, Revelations explores how often those in power throughout history have sought to force "God's enemies" to submit or be killed. It is sure to appeal to Pagels's committed readers and bring her a whole new audience who want to understand the roots of dissent, violence, and division in the world's religions, and to appreciate the lasting appeal of this extraordinary text.

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.

|Editor||: Thomas Nelson|
A fun and fascinating way to learn about the book of Revelation. The Bible’s final book, Revelation, can seem intimidating or downright impossible to comprehend, even for serious students of the Scriptures. Filled with complex imagery, vivid depictions of violence, and challenging spiritual references, Revelation is often set aside by readers in favor of more straightforward, easier-to-digest biblical material. Yet the capstone of the canon need not remain a mystery. In this refreshingly accessible book, Bible scholar and best-selling author Tim LaHaye (originator of the Left Behind series) and renowned puzzle master Timothy E. Parker (editor of the USA Today Crossword, and founder of The Universal Crossword, King James Games, and Master Puzzles) demystify Revelation for your benefit. Absorb this book and discover afresh—or for the first time—the richness of Revelation and its God-breathed, life-changing power to deepen your walk of faith.

Matthew Shardlake, meanwhile, is working on the case of a teenage boy, a religious maniac locked in the Bedlam hospital for the insane.

How John Wrote the Book of Revelation is the first of its kind, and introduces genetic literary reconstruction to Biblical studies. It enables the reader to produce prior drafts of Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, thereby allowing the reader to apply the literary science of genetic criticism to a book in the Bible. How John Wrote the Book of Revelation takes the most difficult book to understand in the Christian Scriptures and reveals the sequence in which it was written, from the very first line to the final parallel. This provides the reader, for the first time, with the experience of observing how a Biblical book was written, and does this from an intimate perspective, as though they were looking over John's shoulders as he crafted it. How John Wrote the Book of Revelation is the first book that teaches the reader how to read Revelation the way it was written. After centuries of blind guess work trying to divine meaning, and weak interpretations of symbols, this book finally presents a clear, precise, and consistent method. It is a guidebook to identify all the rich symbols and their meanings within Revelation. Inside the pages of this book is the all-encompassing theory of construction for the book of Revelation. It includes three prior drafts of the book of Revelation, along with hundreds of charts and illustrations. How John Wrote the Book of Revelation is like no other book that has been written before, and sets a new paradigm for all Biblical works.

The Revelation of Revelation is a story never told before now because it wasn't to be told until now, according to scriptures. It didn't happen in a vision, not in a sudden rush of a mighty wind, but instead a gentle but profound inspiration.

General and scholarly interest in Revelation has never been greater. This is a specially commissioned set of state-of-the-art studies on the most important aspects of Revelation and its significance for the 21st century--by the world's leading scholars. The studies can be grouped in relation to three main themes: strategies of interpretation (theological, literary, feminist, metaphorical); the nature of the violent imagery; and passages of particular interest (the letter to Laodicea, 'praise and politics', Old Testament allusions, the second coming of Christ).This book will provide an invaluable resource for researchers and students alike.
|Author||: Ethelbert William Bullinger|
|Editor||: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform|
This edition of Commentary on Revelation contains the original tables, so that readers may comprehend fully the explanations of the author. E. W. Bullinger's commentaries on the Bible are rightfully renowned. He remains a much-consulted source on the Book of Revelation, which has long been considered one of the most unusual and difficult to interpret portions of the New Testament. Many Christians find the text impenetrable, as its insights are hidden behind cryptic passages. A determined Biblical scholar and lifelong clergyman, E. W. Bullinger spent decades poring through the ancient texts of Christianity. He attempts to make even the most difficult passages, shrouded in nuance and unusual phrasing, clear for ordinary believers to understand. He commonly uses letters and lists to better arrange and explain the text, and on occasion uses columned tables to properly present and align information. This book is divided into specific chapters, each of which corresponds to a set of passages, event or vision which took place in the Book of Revelation. Bullinger looks at each passage in sequence, and presents a clear explanation which sits well with the Biblical canon. References to chapters and verse are bracketed, and readers may also follow along by having a copy of the New Testament to hand during readings. Those who read the Bullinger commentaries often feel a sense of enlightenment and demystification. Although usually acquainted with the Holy Bible from childhood, many Christians spend their lives not realizing the true depth and meaning behind the more difficult books of the Bible. E. W. Bullinger believed that any Christian, not merely scholars or member of the priesthood, could and should grasp the Word of God to the fullest. Although controversial and even condemned as blasphemous when he was alive for some of his theological views, E. W. Bullinger's labors to explain the Bible are mostly well-received by modern readers. Few scholars of the mysterious texts of the Bible present theses as thorough, tenacious and well-argued as Bullinger's. It is for this reason that his accounts, supported by voluminous research, are appreciated to this day.

Professor Gunton asks whether there is more to be said for the motion of Christianity as a 'revealed religion; than some of the more simplified recent treatments allow. He analyses the concept of revelation, illustrating its importance for understanding even beyond religious purposes. He contends that natural theology and natural revelation are distinct categories and examines why they are so often confused. He considers revelation in relation to scripture and tradition, and the nature of inspiration.

He also examines elements that complicate the interpretation of apocalyptic literature.
