Reviews - What do customers think about Lamb Wins, The: A Guided Tour through Revelation?
Masterclass in biblical interpretation Oct 25, 2007
John Calvin famously failed to produce a commentary on Revelation. I believe he said he did not understand it. Richard Bewes does. The Lamb wins is the message and here it is lucidly explained chapter by chapter. The author is a very gifted preacher. His sermons abound in masterful memorable illustrations. So does this book which is based on talks he gave in Africa. Here is much for the edification and enlightenment of the ordinary Christian as well as great help for anyone wishing to preach or teach this perplexing book. He divides up each part very well sometimes using all four schools of interpretation of the text. Study questions are given too.Read it and be thrilled to share in the victory of the Lamb!

Rector Bewes brings Revelation and its meaning into everyday language. He has opened the door to understanding one of God's more mysterious books without loosing you in theological terminology. Bravo Rector Bewes and the All Souls Church tradition.
