Reviews - What do customers think about Revelation: Four Views/A Parallel Commentary?
Pretty Good Jan 30, 2007
Pretty good. If you're interested in a comparison of early date preterism and dispensational futurism, I would recommend Rapture: The End-Times Error That Leaves the Bible Behind (Paperback) by David B. Currie instead.
If You Could Only Buy One Book On Revelation May 3, 2006
If you could only buy one book On Revelation, this would be it. I have about 30 titles and this one is the best. It is so even handed that I am still not sure what the author's views are. The formatting of the book allows a quick understanding of the 4 major ways of interpreting Revelation. For example, if you want to know what the Mark of the Beast -666- is all about you go to the commentary and read the section on 666 in each column and in a very short time frame you have everything you need at a preliminary level, and most of us on this subject will never get past that level!
Excellent Organization Mar 25, 2006
REVELATION: FOUR VIEWS: A PARALLEL COMMENTARY by Steve Gregg was a blessing in my study of the Book of Revelation. He has presented four major views of the interpretation of Revelation: (1) Historicist, (2) Preterist, (3) Futurist, and (4) Spiritual. He has covered each group's beliefs in a format that sets them out side by side in four columns on the two page spread. This makes it very easy to compare. Every verse in Revelation (usually a group of verses at a time) is explained in the light of the four different views.
I found myself picking and choosing from mainly the Futurist and Spiritual, with a little Historicist thrown in. But to have a comprehensive study, all views must be presented. Gregg has done this, and he has done it in a very complete and easy to understand way.
His information on who speaks for a particular school of thought is excellent. It provided me with an abundant list of authors for parallel reading.
I highly recommend it to anyone seeking to understand the Book of Revelation and to gain insight into the different beliefs held on the subject.
"Not the most practical or the most simple, but the most scholarly" Dec 11, 2005
If you want a thorough study of the major views of Revelation, there is no finer book on the subject. If you want a commentary on Revelation, this is not it.
For commentary, (teens or new Christians), check J. Parks's work: "Dragons, Grasshoppers, & Frogs!". It is super-simple, very Christ-centered, and very practical.
If you want an in-depth commentary, check out Revelation by John Walvoord.
This work however is the culmination of scholarly research, and is organized in such a way that as you read (or teach) through Revelation, you will readily know the four major viewpoints.
The viewpoints are presented fairly and without bias. This is simply the one book you cannot be without if you are studying an objective discussion on the views of Revelation.
The Historic Interpretation Dec 5, 2005
This is an excellent book. Deeply researched and fairly presented. I'd say it is by far the best modern presentation of the four major methods of interpreting the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Personally, I believe the Reformers Protestant Historic Interpretation is the only valid interpretation. Read this book and seek out scripture for the truth, which can be found. http://battlegroundjesus.blogspot.com/
