THe book of Revelation deconstructed May 4, 2010
This is a good book but it is almost devotional in nature. It is a nice addition for study but definately not a study guide.
Heavenly Feb 20, 2010
My husband used this in his Sunday School Class and everyone loved it. It answered many questions about Revelation in an intelligent, concise form. They all give it thumbs up.
Don't Waste Your Money - A Nonsensical, Glossed-Over View of the Book of Revelation Apr 6, 2009
If you want a book that takes a false, unfounded and preconceived view of Bible Prophecy, ignores all other prophetical Scriptures and leaves you truly less informed after you read it, then this book is for you. Too bad there aren't zero stars because that is what this book deserves.
To give this book a subtitle of "A No-Nonsense Look at the Book of Revelation" is little more than a poor attempt to mask the lack of scholarship of someone who thinks Caesar Nero was the Antichrist.
This is abundantly clear when the author himself makes a complete and stunningly glaring ERROR in the chapter titled "Our Six or Seven Yards of Time". Keep a calculator handy if this becomes hard to follow. The author claims that approximately 6000 years of time, from Adam and Eve until today, can be represented as two football fields laid end-to-end; i.e., 600 feet with each foot representing 10 years. OK, no problem there, the math is just fine.
As everyone knows, a football field is 300 feet or 100 yards long. Fans always want tickets on the 50-yard line so they have an equal chance of watching the action of both teams. Therefore, two football fields would be 200 yards, or the aforementioned 600 feet.
Knowing that God has given each human about 70 years (the author intends to reference 60 or 70 years that people live; some longer of course) he suggests making the most of our time. Again, nothing wrong with that at all.
However, 6000 years in 200 yards is 30 years per yard, or 10 years per foot as we noted before. The chapter should be titled: "Our Six or Seven FEET of Time" or "Our Two or Two-and-one-third Yards of Time". Six or Seven Yards would have people living to the ripe old age of 180 or 210 years. The failure of the author to even recognize his own gross error here shows how haphazard his approach to Bible Prophecy is in this book.
No mention of the things to occur in Israel (and the world) in the future, the fact that the Antichrist and False Prophet are yet future (doesn't fit for post-millennialists or in the case of this author, preterists), etc. all in clear and direct avoidance of the many Scriptures God has given us. Oddly enough, the author allows for a Second Coming of Christ, but glosses over the events of Revelation prior to that Day. This author believes that the Second Coming might occur while he's out tooling around in his classic red Mustang (cool car but sorry pal, the Scripture says quite different in reference to the actual Second Coming). Try reading Revelation 19 and Zechariah 14 without the rose-colored glasses.
If you want a truly decent book on Bible Prophecy and are willing to accept the truth of the Bible, then skip this worthless book and purchase Dave Hunt's "When Will Jesus Come?" book and the video "Israel, Islam and Armageddon". You will also find many fine teachings of Dr. Ed Hindson at TheKingIsComing.Com with videos and books that give an honest and balanced view of the Scriptures; not one like this that tries to push an invalid preconceived notion that would leave the reader woefully uninformed and misguided on such an important topic.
Now, you can choose to heed the Words of Jesus Christ Himself in the Word of God, the Bible, which He spoke nearly 2,000 years ago. Read what He said and let that be your guide. Yes, Christians are to occupy until He comes but He had other things to say.
Here are some significant verses: Matthew 24:36-44. Luke 12:39, Revelation 3:3, Revelation 16:15, Luke 21:35, Matthew 16:2-4, Luke 12:55-57, Luke 17:34-36.
this site offers many of the Dave Hunt books. Search for the above and you'll find many associated titles you may purchase that will give you good, solid Biblical teaching. I'm adding a couple more products you should purchase from this site:
When Will Jesus Come?: Compelling Evidence for the Soon Return of Christ
Israel Islam and Armageddon: Prophecy Revealed!

"Answers for Chicken Little" is probably the best study on Revelation I have ever read. Dan Boone approaches "The Revelation of Jesus to John" as the beautiful continuation of the story of God's relationship with the human race. He does not try to squeeze 21st century situations into the ancient writing, but he does affirm that the story found there is also our story. In "Answers for Chicken Little," you will find an easy-to-read, very understandable approach to what many consider scripture's most difficult text. Happy reading!

This book gives a complete different angle on how to look on this "controversial" bible book. Dan Boone let's you get back on what it is really all about in the days when it was written. Not some apocoliptic seince fiction tale to doom us all, just dynamic history told in a curious way. The chapters are short and easy to follow. Add a little humor and voila, Answers for chicken little!
