Publishers Description
Full of awesome and gruesome scenes that seem to provoke more fear than faith, the Book of Revelation is often read as a roadmap through the doom and gloom of the end time. Correctly understood, however, this grand finale of the New Testament is a loud and clear call to conversion as well as a message of hope and consolation for Christians of every age. Catherine Cory carefully explains the variety of visions that unfold in kaleidoscopic fashion throughout the book. Scenes from the Old Testament form collages that convey the central theme; namely, the God is in control and evil is being conquered. The breathtaking conclusion resounds with God's promise, "Behold, I make all things new." Cory's lucid style reveals the true message of the Book of Revelation. Comprehensive and understandable, the New Collegeville Bible Commentary series brings the timeless messages and relevance of the New Testament to today's readers. With recent scholarship, this series provides vital background and addresses important questions such as authorship and cultural context. The New Collegeville Bible Commentary includes New American Bible translation and will appeal to preachers, teachers, Bible study groups, and all Bible readers.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Revelation (New Collegeville Bible Commentary. New Testament) (Pt. 12)?

Demystifying an Often Confusing Text  May 30, 2006
Cory, who chairs the theology department of the University of Saint Thomas, stresses in her introduction that the Book of Revelation, like all of Scripture, can be properly understood only in relation to its social and historical context. She cautions against viewing Revelation as a timeline useful in preparing for the end of the world, or a "war manual" applicable to the battle between righteous and evil forces. Instead, we can find in Revelation a challenge to embrace right behavior in our everyday lives. She proceeds through a verse-by-verse examination to demystify this often disturbing and confusing text.

Her early explanation of the symbolic numbers and colors in the Book of Revelation prepares us to understand their intended significance as they are presented in the series of visions that make up the text. She also highlights patterns of the number seven in Revelation, as in the visions of last things in chapters 19 and 20. Returning to the caution against literal interpretation, Cory points out that the end-times visions are presented in "highly mythical language," that calls for symbolic, rather than historical, interpretation. "However, the message is clear: God is just and God is sovereign. God will indeed vindicate the righteous and punish the wicked."

This work, as others in the New Collegeville Bible Commentary series, is designed with the reading, with boldface subheadings, running across the top of each page, and the commentary, with related bold headings, printed below. Discussion questions and a map of the Seven Churches of Revelation are provided.
