Reviews - What do customers think about Revelation: The Lamb Who Is the Lion?
Great Bible study Jan 10, 2007
We have not yet completed this Bible study, but I'm a big fan of the Fisherman Bible Studyguides series. You read scripture, then talk about how it's applicable to our lives today. And I really like this approach to studying Revelation: Basically, that we can't know exactly what all the signs and symbols mean, we can't determine the timing, etc., because only God knows how the end times will really play out. But we can be blessed by a deeper knowledge of God's word and growing in our relationship with Him through studying the book of Revelation.
Helps Clear Up a Difficult Book May 7, 2006
"Revelation: The Lamb Who Is the Lion" by Gladys Hunt impressed me enough to explore other Fisherman Bible Study Guides. My small group Bible study used it week by week, fully engaged and involved in discovering what Revelations is about.
That Revelation is among the Bible's more controversial books, and the most vastly interpreted is no secret. Therefore, finding a way to study it with being encumbered without a strong theological bias is a challenge.
I am not usually a big fan of Bible study workbooks because either they speak over the reader, or down to the reader. A common frustration for me is when it has us read John 3:16, then asks, "Who gave his only son?" Not Gladys Hunt. She asks real question, letting the Bible speak for itself.
A typical question for study and discussion is for Revelation 14 "How are the 144,000 described in verse 1 sharply distinguished from the people mention in 13:16-17?"
Each chapter divides Revelation by chapter, occasionally combining chapters, covering all of Revelation's 22 chapters in 12 lessons, with a thirteenth lesson helping understand the book as a complete unit.
Leaders notes are at the end, presenting the complexities and controversies, as well as insight regarding the culture, the perspectives, and various ideas impacting the mind of John, plus significant thoughts by leading thinkers.
A topical bibliography finishes it off, with roughly 90-100 books listed for further reading.
I fully recommend "Revelation: The Lamb Who Is the Lion" by Gladys Hunt.
