Description

The book of Revelation seems very odd to modern readers and has been interpreted in some strange ways over the centuries. In plain English Jon Newton guides readers through curious interpretations past and present (e.g., using Revelation to predict the future, vilify enemies, and interpret current events) and explains where they go wrong. In particular, the massively influential dispensationalist interpretations of the Left Behind novels and Hal Lindsay are explained and found wanting. But, more than exposing misunderstandings of the book, Newton is concerned to persuade readers that Revelation is profoundly relevant today when interpreted responsibly. In an easy to follow way he explains principles for reading Revelation virtuously. Newton ends with an investigation into the ever-controversial question of the millennium. In a nutshell, this is a level-headed, informed, yet readable guide to making sense of the strangest book in the Bible
