Item description for The Book of Revelation: Unlocking the Future (Twenty-First Century Biblical Commentary) by Edward E. Hindson & Ed Hindson...
Overview The book of Revelation is the most fascinating book ever written. It claims to be a vision of the end of the world. The reader is swept up into another time and another place as the panorama of the future unfolds before us. This final book of the biblical record is the capstone of divine revelation. In it, God reveals the great end-times drama that leads to Armageddon and beyond. All of us are curious about the future. There is something in human nature that wants to know what is going to happen next. God speaks to that need in our lives by revealing the future before it happens. That process is called a prophecy of future events. The author?s goal is to help simplify the message of the Revelation so the reader can easily understand it. He surveys the general content of this great book of prophecy with a view to keeping the big picture in mind, rather than being lost in all the details. This coupled with a series of study questions at the end of each chapter is designed to enable the reader to study the details of the Revelation on their own or in a group setting.
WILL THE HUMAN RACE SURVIVE IN THE FUTURE?
EVERYONE IS CURIOUS ABOUT THE FUTURE. There is something in human nature that wants to know what is going to happen next. God speaks to the need in our lives by revealing the future before it happens. That process is called "a prophecy "of future events. This book is a study of the prophecies in the book of Revelation.
The book of Revelation is the grand and noble conclusion to the Bible. It captives our attention, stirs our imagination, and points us to our glorious future destiny. It shows the living relationship between the risen Christ and His Bride, the Church. It also records the final days of this world and reveals the glorious new world yet to come. The book of Revelation gives us hope for the future when God will make "all things new" (Rev.21:5.
Dr.Hindson simplifies the message of the Revelation so that you can easily understand it for yourself. He surveys the general content of this captivating book of prophecy with a view to keeping the big picture in mind, rather than getting lost in all the details. His approach is to keep the study focused on the key issues in each chapter.
The Book of Revelation has been called the epilogue of the unfolding drama of redemption. It's God's road map to help us understand where human history is going. In the biblical record, human history begins in a garden and ends in the eternal city. It begins with tragedy and ends with triumph. It begins with man's failure and ends with his exaltation. In between, there stands a cross and on that cross, Jesus Christ changed the course of human history forever.
The message of the Bible represents the timeless truth of God. As each generation seeks to apply that truth to its specific context it becomes necessary for an up-to-date commentary to be created just for them. The editors and authors of the Twenty-First Century Biblical Commentary" have endeavored to do just that. They represent conservative, evangelical, and dispensational scholarship at its best.

Reviews - What do customers think about Revelation (21st Century Biblical Series)?
Solid resource Aug 1, 2004
I'm not sure what motivated the previous review. This is a good work, written at a level so laypeople can understand the intricate issues and make use of the information. Hindson writes at a very scholarly level when it is called for (as in _Isaiah's Immanuel_ or _The Philistines and the Old Testament_). This commentary is a solid choice for the pastor looking to put together a sermon or Bible study without getting lost in the detail of a more academically-focused work. Well organized, with just the right amount of detail for its purpose.
If you are looking for an exegetical commentary from the same general perspective (dispensational premillenialism), I cannot say enough good things about Robert L. Thomas' work in the Wycliffe Exegtical Commentary series from Moody.
Disappointed Sep 19, 2003
The contents of this book are over simplified and shallow. It is also difficult to follow the verse outline.
