Item description for Commentary On Revelation by E. W. Bullinger...
Overview Revelation is one of the most difficult, widely-debated books of the Bible. The late nineteenth and early twentieth century saw a renewed interest in the study of the Bible prophecy and especially the book of Revelation. E. W. Bullinger's Commentary on Revelation (first published in 1902 under the title The Apocalypse or, The Day of the Lord), approaches the text of Revelation from a dispensational viewpoint, but seeks to provide a full analysis of the structure and linguistic features of the book. Included are schematic outlines of the Greek text. Bullinger interacts with issues arising from a comparison of various ancient manuscripts of Revelation in order to provide an understanding of the text that is linguistically, historically, and biblically accurate.
Revelation is one of the most difficult, widely debated books of the Bible. However Bullinger, an untiring scholar of God's word, treats Revelation not as a work to be interpreted by man, but as God's own interpretation of the future to us. Bullinger's vast knowledge of the Scriptures, his unique grasp of history, and his unusual interpretative ability will challenge you to rethink your views of interpretation.
This commentary is not merely a warmed-over version of other men's views. Bullinger looks at every verse and devotes major discussions to key debated issues in the book of Revelation.Verse-by-verse discussionWritten by a well-known classic scholar

Revelation By E W Bullinger Oct 11, 2007
The book is brilliant. I have read numerous commentaries on the Revelation but none come near to the truth that this one reveals. All serious readers of the Bible should have it. But prepare to be surprised and amazed, your preconcieved ideas might get shattered.
AT LAST Jul 10, 2007
This is a great book! If you are seriously researching the bible, you should read it.Correct in many ways,it explains the revelation verse by verse,making it an actual revelation!
Not as great reading as his "Number in Scripture" book May 14, 2007
I was intrigued on reading Bulinger's premise, namely that the "church" that is mentioned and dealt with in Revelation is not the current, present "church" as we consider ourselves, but rather it is supposed to be about the jews and the church that will be present after the rapture. It's always reassuring to me to read that I will not have to go through the great tribulation! But, as far as trying to read the book, I quickly got bogged down in minutia, even in the Intro, as Bulinger explains carefully how his research of the bible (which I agree the church has stubbornly misunderstood and mistaught throughout history) shows his premise to be correct. He is a great scholar, but this book is probably only for scholars to enjoy. I really enjoyed and got excited about his "Number in scripture" book, which I highly recommend, but this one I finally quit reading after the third chapter...
Another exhaustive work by E.W. Bullinger Apr 22, 2006
Like many students of the Bible, I have been highly interested in the Book of Revelations. And like many students of the Bible I have sought as much information as I possibly could concerning the subject of prophecy and the last days. Bullinger's Commentary on Revelation is by far the most accurate I have come across. Bullinger had a very exceptional strategy when studying God's Word. He would isolate a verse and study it from every angle, making sure that the interpretation that he came up with was God's interpretation and not that of his own, for God's Word interprets itself. I won't say that this book is 100% accurate, but it is far better than some of the junk I have read or watched on TBN. This book, like so many other books by Bullinger, breaks down the common errors taught in traditional Christianity and gives the reader new insights to Biblical truths. I highly recommend this book to every Christian.
If You Are Used to Bullinger ... Mar 17, 2006
... then this volume will disappoint you. I actually think the work was completed after Bullinger's homegoing.
In my opinion, Bullinger's hyperdispensationalism kept him from making remarkable insights into the Revelation that are on a par with his most excellent insights elsewhere.
If you have painstakingly reviewed the marvelous scholarship of Bullinger (and his team?) is piecing together the timelines of the captivity, your expectations of his work in the Revelation willl be sky-high as mine was.
So, while it is still an epic work of substantial value, it's just not quite up to the pinnacle of scholarship that is EWB.
That being said: of course buy it. Trade in a couple thousand copies of "purpose driven trash" for it.
