Exposition of the Book of Revelation (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Exposition of the Book of Revelation The statements of this book are to be taken literally except where its allegorical nature is directly stated. The language of numbers holds a large place in this book which is divided into seven parts and each part into sub-sections of sevens, more or less clearly defined. The reasons for collecting these scattered fragments and giving them to the public, is the conviction wrought by more than thirty years in the pastorate, that the Book of Revelation is an essential but very much neglected por tion of the Holy Scriptures; also that much of an unsound nature has been written on this portion of the Holy Word, calling the more for a presentation of its blessed truths from a strictly orthodox standpoint. A large part of the works written on this book belong to the order of the cyclopaedia, and are adapted for schol ars and theologians. This work is designed for those who have not the time to peruse the more elaborate works. This is not a controversial work, neither is it proposed to give the steps leading to the positions taken, but is rather a summary of conclusions. These humble pages are sent forth to the world with the sincere desire and prayer that they may do good. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
