Item description for Revelation- Bible Commentary (Everymans Bible Commentaries) by Charles C. Ryrie...
Overview According to Dr. Charles C. Ryrie, the book of Revelation was "designed not to mystify but to clarify." Revelation, written by the apostle John while in exile on the island of Patmos, is one of the most important and fascinating books in the Bible, but its content has often seemed hidden and mysterious to many. Dr. Ryrie's straightforward interpretation of Revelation is characterized by understandable explanations and careful attention to significant features of the book. This refreshing, concise new edition, with helpful charts and graphs, is written especially for those who want to understand what lies ahead in God's plan. The more one learns about that plan, the greater the confidence that God's victory over Satan, death, and sin is only a matter of time.
Publishers Description Not to mystify, but to clarify. According to Dr. Charles C. Ryrie, the book of Revelation was not designed to confuse or mystify its readers, but to enlighten them about future events. Revelation, the only major prophetic book in the New Testament, was written by the apostle John while in exile on the island of Patmos. John was commanded by God not to seal the book (22:10), and those who read it are promised a special blessing (1:3). Apparently, therefore, the book was expected to be intelligible and helpful to those who read it. This refreshing, concise new edition with helpful charts and graphs is written especially for those who want to understand what lies ahead in God's plan. Dr. Ryrie's careful attention to detail and understandable explanations will not only help to clear some of the mystery surrounding the book of Revelation, but heighten your confidence that God's victory over Satan, death, and sin is only a matter of time. "Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near" (Revelation 1:3, NIV).

Reviews - What do customers think about Revelation- Bible Commentary (Everymans Bible Commentaries)?
Scholarly Without Being Overwhelming.... Aug 18, 2006
Ryrie, perhaps best known for the Ryrie Study Bible, has here written a verse-by-verse Revelation commentary noteworthy for being sufficiently detailed and scripturally sound without being too overwhelming for the average layperson. For readers with a mindset to study but little or no background in Revelation, I recommend this solid commentary. Also, this updated edition has quite a few helpful charts. If after this book more depth is desired, try other dispensational commentaries such as those of Walvoord, Thomas, Couch (ed.), or Newell. (For those familiar with eschatology lingo, if you are a preterist, historicist, or postrib premillenialist in your endtimes interpretation, you will not like this book, since it is written from a pre-trib, pre-millenialist viewpoint.)
